You ran the 0.9 sti ISO on a machine with only serial console,
and got as far as installing packages?  Seems very odd to

Can you try the 0.9.1 ISO instead?  It is one CD that boots
on 32 and 64 bit, and automatically detects whether to use
sti or serial consoles.  See mkhppa1.esiee.fr

Errors such as packages being corrupt imply a hardware problem
to me.  Maybe an error writing or reading the CD, or similar.
The packages are on the CD, and are not corrupt in master ISO,
for sure.
