Astaro 7.4 install error.

I tried installing ASG 7.4 on my router PC, and it always fails when I get to Step 3. The Step 3 page shows the error "Installation failed, remove disc and reboot".

I hit ALT-F2 and it brought me to the command line, and when I hit ALT-F3 I get a log report. Everything seems ok and towards the end I get this.

Total 1 Disks found
Phase end: hw_conf (ret=0)
<ERROR> unmount: /dest//sys: No such file or directory
<ERROR> unmount: /dest//proc: No such file or directory
<ERROR> unmount: /dest//boot: No such file or directory
<ERROR> unmount: /dest//opt/inst: No such file or directory
<ERROR> unmount: /dest//var/storage: No such file or directory
<ERROR> unmount: /dest//var/log: No such file or directory
<ERROR> unmount: /dest//tmp: No such file or directory
<ERROR> unmount: /dest//: Invalid argument

When I go back to the command line I am in home "~" and type in dir and it lists these:


Like most linux distros I assume... Am I getting the errors because the directories are in the wrong directory? i.e //boot is not in the /dest directory? and if i cd to /dest nothing is in the directory..

semms like other astaro fourm members have had an issue similar but no one had their question answered.

I'm sorry if I posted it in the wrong place.

I'm not all that familiar with astaro, but they must publish some sort of HCL. How does your hardware fit that HCL?

i have seen several hcl out there. mine fits ok but not perfect. i was wondering what those errors meant exactly, i.e. "Phase end: hw_conf (ret=0)". i have a 1.1 duron, 1gb ram, 10 gb hdd, and an intel pci nic and an onboard nic.
