Unhappy Suse 9.1 Personal - YAST "An Error Occured During Installation"


Bonjour Tout Le Monde,

I hope I can get a quick and efficient response for the following, and I am confident that I will

I am trying to install SuSe Personal 9.1 Edition on my IBM Thinkpad i-1300. It also has WinXP SP2.
I downloaded the iso and burned the CD using Roxio 5.5 Platinum last Thursday using "Track at once" (which I am not too sure about. There is also another option called "Disk at once").
I have a 20 Go hard-disk. Before installation, I left an unallocated 4.5 Go space at the end of the disk to make it easier for creating partitions during installation.

I boot my computer from my new cd, choose "Installation" from the list and YAST starts up. It will acknowledge the WinXP partitions and automatically fill the unallocated space for SuSe automagically adjust the newly created <root> and <swap> partitions. I accept the Default settings (Except for changing my time zone ofcourse), and proceed with the installation
The installation process runs smoothly, taking approximately about and hour.

After the installation has completed 100%, a mesage box pops up saying: "The following Packages returned an error" ... noia, man-paces, glibe...and quite a
few more.

I accept the error and one of the following two things happen:

1. It continues to the final installation phase.
At this phase it stops at 62%, showing "Installing bootloader". Nothing hapens... and I leave my computer like that for an hour.
When I select "Accept" at the bottom of the screen, the screen blanks out showing the busy clock cursor, followed by a blue screen showing a red dialogue box saying "an error occured during the installation".

2. The screen blanks out showing the busy clock cursor, followed by a blue screen (It doesent even go to the final installation phase) showing a red dialogue box saying "an error occured during the installation".

I hope there is solution around it, and Merci Beaucoup in advance.

I have tried installing SuSe several times in the past but somehow never get past the complete installation . My knowledge of SuSe it just limited to drooling on screenshots.

I have installed and successfully used Redhat starting from 8.0 up to Fedora Core 2 on the same computer. But this time I want to try out something different, just because it has a lot of eye-candy

...End...

Check your ISOs against the checksum. There are probably errors. The other possibility, which I have experienced, is a hardware failure on the drive they are being installed from.

If the ISOs are bad, the solution is to re-download and re-burn them.

The ISO is OK. I Checked it using FastSum utility ( http://www.fastsum.com/ ). No Errors were reported.
