Hi guys/girls

I need urgent help with this!!

When formating completes and the install image is transferred to the hard drive, the install fails with the following error:

"An error occurred transferring the install image to your hard drive. You are probably out of disk space"

What's up with that??

I have an Intel server with 7 x 400GB SATA drives, 6 in RAID 5 and 1 as hot spare. I have been battling with this thing the whole day. Recreated the RAID, partitioned and formatted with both manual and automatic modes.

I have now removed 1 of the 2 RAM modules, but same results. Will test again in 10 minutes by swapping the RAM modules.

I have also tried the following command line switches:

linux ide=nodma

linux allowcddma

What can be wrong here?? I need to get this server up and running ASAP!!

It seems that the problem is a bad disc. Results from Media Check:

CentOS-4 i386 disc 1

is complete, and the result is : FAIL

The image which was just tested has errors. This could be due to a corrupt download or a bad disc. If applicable, please clean the disc and try again. If this test continues to fail you should not continue install.

Eish, I wish I knew more about Linux so that I could be of some use when Linux issues crop up.

Sorry to hear about the disk problem Christo. Let us know if you manage to get it sorted!

I guess you have no choice but to download a new ISO - Something which is not nice to do in this country of ours

Burned the new ISO's to disc and installation completed with no errors.

Nice. It could be that when you write ISO's at high speeds 40x + they can fail from time to time. The recommended speed is nothing higher than 24x.
