2nd June 2007 I downloaded the ISO and burnt it to a CD. The computer that I want to install to has ubuntu6.06LTS (32bit), and XP on separate drives,(both with latest updates) booted via grub (on the ubuntu drive). The video device is ATI Radeon Xpress 200. Physical memory is 895Mb. The installation process goes OK with British English defined, Then I get a failure on "load installer components from CD" I then went to "check the CD integrity" and got: "The CD-ROM you have installed is not a valid Debian CD_ROM, please change the disk". I tried again with install vga=771 noapic nolapic This was very slow. It eventually reported that there was no driver for my CD drive ( HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GWA-4161B). This drive has had the latest firmware update installed (from an HP site), and is OK on Ubuntu and XP. What do I do next?

Bad ISO

I had a bad run in with my service provider. It seems that for some reason ISO's downloaded from the 64studio ALL downloaded corrupted though their systems. I perhaps wasted 10+GB of bandwidth downloading and redownloading disks to give to my family and friends. (Personally I just continually upgraded since 0.9.4, one of the last iso's I downloaded without problems. Recently the problems stopped, and I could download 1.4.0 without problems (Yay!) I suggest having a heart to heart with your SP...

I downloaded the iso again, copied to a CD as before. Did MD5 sumchecks on both OK. Exactly the same problem occured.

Sounds like a faulty CD

The most likely explanation is that your download was corrupt. Please download the file called MD5SUM or a file ending in .md5sum, depending on the version, and perform an md5sum check against the image you downloaded, for example: # md5sum 64studio-install_1.0.0_amd64.iso The string which is the output from this command should match exactly the checksum given in the MD5SUM file. If not, you need to download again, preferably using wget. If it does match, then your CD burner may have made an error (this is less likely). If this is indeed the case, please burn the image again at 1x speed.

Look everyone, 1.4 is out.

Look everyone, 1.4 is out. So I'm going to download this iso and try it, knowing my normal working speed I think 2.4 will be done by the time I've burnt the disc. >Aargh! Still no 'Post comment' button, I'll have to preview first. >> Phew, safe to post. "1807 - end of slave trade; 2007 - end of unfair trade"

I had a bad disc as well

I've just downloaded a second iso for a CD, I think Mon/ Tue this week, but I haven't given it a go yet. "1807 - end of slave trade; 2007 - end of unfair trade"

Can not load 64 studio on 64 bit or 32 bit

I always get the same message: (!!) Install the base system Installation step failed An installation step failed.You can try to run the failing item from the menu, or skip it and choose something else. The failing step is: Install the base system (continue) I have tried this on 3 differrent iso's burn on 3 differrent DVD burners. Which I have downloaded from 2 different ISP's. I have tried loading it 6 times 2 times on the first disc and 2 times on the second and third disc's. I have tried using DHCP and not using DHCP, I have tried both the 64 bit version first two times on the 64 bit machine and the other times I have tried the 32 bit version on the 32 bit machine. Having the network configured on not configured seems to make no difference. Both machines I tried to load onto are 1 and a half to 2 years old they are no the high end type of computer. the 64 bit machine has an audigy 2 value sound card it and 2 Gb of memory. The 32 bit machine has a nividia embedded sound card with 4Gb of memory. Both of the machines have separate hard drives which I have formatted with the partition manager in the 64 studio but all 6 times I tried on all the discs I have downloaded all have the same error. Is there another mirror I can download from besides the ones on this website?

Something Fishy

Something sounds amiss here... Which release did you try? If you say you have older equipment, try installing 1.0 (if you didn't try it yet) and if you did, try 1.4. If you also tried this try the newest 2.0 RC1 What else can I say... I had similar (if not the same) problems more than a year ago when we were at 0.4.0 and 0.6.0 still. I had to install from hard disk because the installer would not see my hardware correctly. It is just strange that the problem would occur on two machines... Cheers
