Hello,

First of all, please try to refrain from posting such text as "AHHH HELP" and such, especially in all caps. It is looked down on these forums. Now as far as your problem, have you verified your media that you burned? It may be that you burned the image too fast, and might have a few small errors on the disc. It could also be a BIOS issue.... Try burning at a slower rate, and try again, and then let us know if it works or not. One last thing, this error is all over the internet, too. A google search gave me LOTS of threads and answers about this question.

Cheers,

Josh

Edit - Almost forgot something.... Next time, please be more descriptive with your subject line, as "bad" does not really mean anything. You can post part of the error, along with distro, other quick information, etc, as the subject to have your thread stand out.

Maybe we can help if you bothered to provide details.

What are you running now? Version/distro of Linux? What are you downloading Slackware WITH, from WHERE? Is it downloading and are you getting the error in the BURN process, or does your download manager give you the message, or does it come up when you're trying to do the install?

I could probably add in a few questions:

1. What brand of PC or laptop are you running?

2. What program did you burn the ISO to a DVD with?

3. What was the burn speed you used during the burn process?

Not to diminish the questions above but my first question of probably the most important question I could ask. There are several known PC manufacturers that have adopted usage of what is sorta described as a PC with a Locked-in operating system. No matter what you do without a DVD from the OEM that contains a CMOS/EFI unlock file for the PC you can't upgrade, replace, or tamper with the installed operating system. I don't want to name names but it's one of the bigger name brand manufacturers, and technicians hate to work on them.

Hi,

You should check the 'md5sum' for the downloaded ISO. Burn the ISO at a slower speed then verify the burnt ISO image.

The 'md5sum' or 'hash' is very important to learn to use and too regularly get in the habit of utilizing it. You can get a sum checker for M$ if need be; 'md5sum.exe'.


For GNU/Linux the 'man md5sum' will get you all the information to perform the check. You can get the 'man command' from the 'cli' at anytime.

If you downloaded the CD/DVD ISO then be sure to check the md5sum for the original ISO. From the cli;
Code:
 ~#cd /downloadisolocation      #cdromiso.iso cdromiso.md5
 ~#md5sum -c cdromiso.md5       #substitute the correct name to check
If the ISO md5 is OK then you should check the image burn with 'CdromMd5sumsAfterBurning''.

This way you will know if the burn was OK!

That procedure will check the download ISO with the known md5sum that you should get from the download ISO site. Some users will get the known md5sum from the ISO maintainer/originator's site for added security reasons. You should do the check for any download that you might perform, even a LiveCD. Plus burn the image. Sometimes you may need to lower the burn rate to get a valid burn.

As to your poor title and post composition please look at this; FYI: I suggest that you look at 'How to Ask Questions the Smart Way' so in the future your queries provide information that will aid us in diagnosis of the problem or query.

This is for corp769/ sorry, I'm new. This is for TBOne, corp769, ReaperX7, and onebuck/ I have no clue, I downloaded it to a flashdrive, gave it to a friend, and got back a DVD disk with the ISO image, and the computer is homebuilt and I didn't build it another friend did. All I know about it is it has two 256MB memory cards and a Intel 2 Core Processor (I think that's what the processor is, I can't quite remember).

Ok...so you DID download the ISO image...meaning the problem you posted about getting the message while you were trying to download is wrong, and you're getting the message when you're trying to BOOT from the DVD and do the install. Tends to put a different spin on the question.

You still don't say where you downloaded it from, or with what (bittorrent? Slackware's site? Download manager?), but onebuck hit it on the head. Either you have a corrupted image, or need to burn it at a slower speed. What files do you see on the DVD, when you put it into another computer? If you just see the one .ISO file...that's wrong. Your friend needs to select "burn disc image" in whatever software they're using, to make the disk work.

It comes up on the "Boot:" screen when I try to install it.

Right...like I said, it comes up when you're trying to BOOT from the disc, not download it. And we've just now got a semi-clear picture of things, and are still lacking information. We've asked how you downloaded it, and from where, but you've not answered.

Again....either re-download the image and verify it, or burn it again at a slower speed. And again...without knowing what you've done, how can we help you??

stop typing so quick TBOne!!
These are the files you should be getting unless you choose the torrent download;
You performed the md5sum check on the ISO downloaded before the burn of the ISO image? ISO was confirmed as 'OK'?
Everything points to a bad download or bad burn of the image.

BTW, Everyone has been trying to help. Please do not hamper/discipline someone for trying to be helpful.

EDIT: Just noticed this: Your in Tennessee and downloading form Portugal? Why?
ftp.cerias.purdue.edu is closer so you should choose this one or another USA source.

If you are on a Windows machine and need to burn a copy of Slackware (or any ISO for that matter) look into BurnAware Free (recommended). It's freeware and can burn many disk formats. Just make sure you set your drive burn speed to the LOWEST possible setting it offers or you could end up with errors.

The same goes for K3b.

ImgBurn is another option. Free-as-in-beer, and it's not a free edition of a commercial app.

Thanks for editing the post and removing the ' AHHHHHHHHHHHH SOMEBODY HELLLLP!!!!!!'

Now that you know how to edit a post. Please edit the OP again (advanced mode) and replace the title 'bad' with something like 'Slackware media error' or a self composed description that suits the problem.

That way other members will have hints to the content for LQ searches or browsing.

Free is still free. I've used ImgBurn myself and have it installed as well, but I like the BurnAware interface better as it's more simplified and has less clutter.
