Thread: Corrupted ISO?

  1. #1

    Default Corrupted ISO?

    I'm trying to download openSUSE DVD from both direct link and torrent... Both say ISO image size is 4.3 GB, but when they download, ISO only has 3.3 GB (allthough the download seems to be complete). When i burn that ISO to DVD K3B burn tells me an error (about the file not being the right size). I burned anyway, but i can't install. When it comes to analyzing system, it stops and says it cannot find repositories... no matter what i enter there (cd, dvd, url - both there and before installation, when i put net repoitories) it won't find them.

    Then when i abort installation, i let the installer check its integrity and it reports that it's broken...

    I downloaded openSUSE 11.2 64 bit version... Twice. Both times it didn't work...

    Any ideas?

    Windows 7 and the file is saved to NTFS partition...

    I tried burning in Linux Ubuntu cause i don't have a burning program in Windows, but the file was also on NTFS partition... Could this be it?

    NTFS should not be a problem (FAT32 is) but win7 doesn't use that file system AFAIK.
    But your problem is classic FAT32 error.

    If the downloaded .iso is only 3GB it's pointless burning it and it certainly will not pass a md5sum check anyway.

    there are instructions in one (or all of) these:

    http://en.opensuse.org/Download_Help
    http://tinyurl.com/yhf65pv
    http://tinyurl.com/ycly3eg

    on how to check the md5sum of the downloaded .iso image *before*
    trying to burn a faulty image to a disk..

    and, there is info on how to get a perfect image AND disk even if
    using Win..

    do NOT attempt to install from a corrupt install disk...unless you
    really want all on the disk trashed....you know what they say:

    Garbage in, garbage out.


    > Then when i abort installation, i let the installer check its integrity
    > and it reports that it's broken...


    Do this http://tinyurl.com/yajm2aq *before* any install attempt...even
    if the disk worked perfectly yesterday on one machine it might be
    misread on another machine (or have a fresh fingerprint on the disk!)

    btw, lots of stuff happens during an install that is *not* undone when
    you 'abort'....so, putting a corrupt install disk into the breech and
    pulling the trigger is not the best way to proceed..

    Thx for the replys everyone!

    Ubuntu was installed from live CD (DVD idk)...

    In Ubuntu i get this for "sudo fdisk -l"...

    Disk /dev/sda: 320.1 GB, 320072933376 bytes

    /dev/sda7 21036 38912 143596971 7 HPFS/NTFS

    Partition table entries are not in disk order

    The second ISO i downloaded from torrent is also 3GB so i don't want to waste another DVD burning it cause it'll probably be the same...

    I also downloaded KDE live CD openSUSE, so i'll try that too, but first i'll read all the links everyone gave me and see if i can fix the problem (or find out what the problem is actually)...

    yeah i know but installation didn't get past system analysis and since i didn't know you could check the disk before, it was allready too late...

    But now i know thanx to you so i'll be sure to check before i install anything in the future... Last time i installed SUSE was i think 5 years ago, so i'm a bit confused now... I never had theese kind of problems before...

    thx for the links, hopefully i can fix the problem i'm having and download a normal (4.3GB) ISO so i can install SUSE properly...

    What's the difference between the DVD and live CD? Do i need internet connection for CD?

    EDIT: Cause if the installed system doesn't differ from either CD or DVD, i'd rather use the easyer option (live CD)...

    Then use the CD, repositories will be configured during post-install update, which makes the DVD's content available on the internet.
    - Athlon X6 3.6 GHz, 16 GB DDR3, 30 GB SSD, 3 TB of disks, GT540, openSUSE 12.2 x86_64 + KDE 4.10 + GNOME 3
    - ASUS A73SD, Intel + GT610M Optimus, 6 GB, 120 GB SSD, openSUSE Tumbleweed

    Anything that can go wrong.... will teach us
