View Full Version : "error occurred tranferring install image..."
30th September 2005, 05:30 PM
I am attempting to install Fedora Core 4 - x86 64-bit version on a Pentium D 840+ in an ASUS P5LD2-VM (http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=194&model=536&modelmenu=1) . I am persistantly getting the image transfer error when I attempt to install to a 74 GB Raptor, after formatting the thing after using the default format settings. Obviously, the problem isn't a lack of hard drive space... which raises my suspicions that my Serial ATA controller may be the problem.
I've been playing with the BIOS Serial/Parallel ATA support settings to no avail with the FC4 installer... best case scenario: it recognizes the hard drive and attempts to install to it. I will continue to look around for answers on this.

Oddly enough, the FC4 installer seems capable of partitioning and formatting the hard drive, but not of copying the image to the hard drive. I can, alternately, reboot, load the linux repair console, mount the hard drive and begin writing to it.
I'd really rather not have to install the whole thing from command line... but should that prove to be my only option, how would I go about installing FC4 from command line. Oh, and I have ethernet and the FC4 repair console utilities.

Still stuck and unsure where to go from here.

Dear Friend , I saw your post yesterday when i was searching for a solution with my FC3 installation.
I was trying to install ten times and always in some point the installer stop showing the message
" error trying to copy xxxxxxxx ".
Finally my problem was fixed, It was a bad memory stick ( I had two 512 MB) .
The installation was very fine when one stick was removed.
I guess you have a similar problem. I am not a expert but searching for a solution i saw a lot of
installations problems fixed when the memory was changed.

As you will note from the above, the problem lies in the fact that I can't get the image to copy to the hard drive, not that individual files are corrupted when being passed through.
As far as progress being made, I'd been beating on the install for several days when I decided to install FC4 Test 3. That's when I confirmed that the problem is compatilbility with my SATA controller... because FC4 Test 3 works where FC4 doesn't.
Of course, now I'm having problems with FC4 Test 3... but that's another matter.

I have an ASUS P5LD2-VM, and installed FC4 X86 on my HD 74 Go Raptor without any problem with SATA. Later I installed a FC4 X86_64 on a second hard drive SATA too for a dual boot, and it was fine for the SATA. I just have once to change the IDE controller for my DVD, and now it is ok.
For the RAM, at first prompt you can run memtest86 (or testmem86?) : I had a bad stick too, and it's costless to check.
In my case, I experienced issue with the Internal VGA (Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950), witch is not recognised by the FC4. Do you use it ? If yes, what's your driver like ?
For the network and sound it's seems to be ok.
