Downloading and Installing Ubuntu 14.10 from various Torrents.


Has anyone had a problem downloading Ubuntu 14.10 from the available Torrents? I've tried three separate downloads, after burning to three separate DVDs.From different download sources. Durng the installation it stops in the same place, and consequently screws up the existing installed version which is 14.04. The point where it stops is 2grub-install/dev/sda, and returns an error message. Oct 6 04:39:38 [ 016.077575] Ooops:0000[#2]smp.

Do you do an md5checksum on the downloaded iso file before wasting the DVD? The 14.10 stable release won't be until the end of the month so are you doing this to get involved as a beta tester? What error do you get?
