Mandriva 2008

I just purchased the download ISO for Mandriva 2008 Powerpak and cannot get the distribution to install. Had no problems with the free version. Can anyone help?

Sure what is the problem? How far does the installation get? Post error messages, etc.

Have you got free disk space to install to? ie, the disk space does not belong to any other OS. If so, how much?

Post your system specs: processor, motherboard chipset, ram, graphics card, etc and exactly what happens when you try to install.

Thanks for the reply. The problem was the distribution itself. Downloaded with the http link provided by Mandriva and was not getting the complete distribution. Used FileZilla and was able to get it. It's installing as I'm posting this.


dvd, iso, mandriva2008
