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.
OK, what and how, I tried looking for it before but I can never find out how to do it.

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.
I'm not gonna download a burn software because it will just be removed when I download Slackware.
Quote:
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.
IDK, I just downloaded it and sent it to a friend and he took care of the rest!

ImgBurn is another option. Free-as-in-beer, and it's not a free edition of a commercial app.
I read "Free-as-in-beer" and I'm just gonna lose it when I finally get Slackware.

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.
Not joining this in any way!


BTW, it took me at least 30min. to find out what "LQ" was, and now I steal don't know what "OP" even is or where it's at.

You are the Original Poster(OP) of this Thread. Edit the very first post in the advanced mode. When you pick the edit button you get a minimal edit reply window with limited abilities. If you choose the Go Advance button of that reply window(lower right portion of window) you will be placed in the advance edit mode. While within this mode, notice the subject title bar at the top with the 'bad' title. Just overwrite within this bar a corrected title.

You can always store the download on removable media like 'flash', external USB drive or even another local file system. Just like you transported the ISO to your friend via Flash or whatever intermediate media.

Apparently you and your friend did not do a hash(md5sum) check on the ISO that was downloaded to verify a valid ISO before burning a bad ISO image. Or after the ISO image was burnt to verify a valid image burn. Somewhere you have a error with the ISO and not a valid image after being burnt. Either a bad download, bad copy of the ISO to the transfer media or even the burn session. Possibly slow down the burn rate if the original ISO is valid. Sometimes cheap media (quality of CD/DVD) will cause errors or even mismatch of the media to the burn device will cause errors. Sometimes the burn rate being lowered will correct the situation.

OP defined as Original Poster & LQ is LinuxQuestions.

FYI: LQ has spelling suggestions that will underline a questionable spelled word while composing your post. But it will not replace or suggest a misused word like 'steal' for 'still'. No grammar checking, you can get free online Grammar & Spelling checks.

HTH!

It's either an isolinux bios compatibility issue, without knowing about your system that's just a guess, or it's simply a bad burn. If you won't download and install simple burning program then no one can really help you.

The OP stated the machine had a 'Intel 2 Core Processor' so I doubt it would be BIOS Block problem for that new of a BIOS. OP would need to provide more details about the hardware for us to know.

Leaning to the bad download (bad ISO image) or corrupted when the OP transferred to intermediate media to friend who burnt the image. So either the Download ISO is corrupt or the final burnt image is bad.

Why would you think that is the problem?
Look at dmidecode;
Quote:
excerpt from 'man dmidecode';

dmidecode - DMI table decoder

SYNOPSIS
dmidecode [OPTIONS]

DESCRIPTION
dmidecode is a tool for dumping a computer's DMI (some say SMBIOS) table contents in a human-
readable format. This table contains a description of the system's hardware components, as well
as other useful pieces of information such as serial numbers and BIOS revision. Thanks to this
table, you can retrieve this information without having to probe for the actual hardware. While
this is a good point in terms of report speed and safeness, this also makes the presented infor-
mation possibly unreliable.

The DMI table doesn't only describe what the system is currently made of, it also can report the
possible evolutions (such as the fastest supported CPU or the maximal amount of memory sup-
ported).

SMBIOS stands for System Management BIOS, while DMI stands for Desktop Management Interface. Both
standards are tightly related and developed by the DMTF (Desktop Management Task Force).

As you run it, dmidecode will try to locate the DMI table. If it succeeds, it will then parse
this table and display a list of records like this one:

Handle 0x0002, DMI type 2, 8 bytes. Base Board Information
Manufacturer: Intel
Product Name: C440GX+
Version: 727281-001
Serial Number: INCY92700942
Plus check your BIOS version and BIOS manufacture web site to confirm this indeed is your issue or not. We have not gotten hardware information from you to identify this as the problem. Other than a multi-core processor in use.

If you know that spelling is not correct(identified within the reply window with a red squiggly line underneath) then pick the word with the right mouse button to get list of suggestions that you can choose from to correct. 'details' is the correct spelling for the word in question.

Is at?! I haven't the foggiest idea of what you just said, or the guy you quoted. I'm just try to redownload it to the flash drive and give to my friend and see if that takes care of it.
