debian-live-lenny-i386-standard.iso fails on an assembled box w Pentium 4 3Hz
I downloaded & burned the prebuilt image
(I tried also the gnome & kde versions, but they do not fit on a cd even with
overburning, so I don't much see their point).
I did check that the image is burned correctly (checked that
and compared the downloaded image directly with the cd in the drive:
cmp /dev/hdd /tmp/debian-live-lenny-i386-standard.iso
Then I gave it a try on my assembled desktop pc, a
GenuineIntel Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz with 1GB of ram, a couple of
hdisks, a cd burner and a dvd driver (I can provide more hardware info).
Well, that live cd fails, whether it is put in the cd or in the dvd drive.
The splash screen comes up, but it stops mid-way in writing the first message.
Something like "press enter to". Here it pauses some 3 secs, then the screen
turns to a random b/w pattern like tv static and the following message appears:
isolinux: Disk error 32, Ax=4280, drive 9F
Boot failed: press a key to retry
Retrying gives exactly the same followup.
Please note that that this same pc holds a perfecly running lenny box, with all
hardware dealt with just fine. I remember that upon installing the standard
debian installer worked just fine.
I guess some serious fix of the live cd is of order.
I sent a separate report on a similarly failing test on my laptop.
