    Question Install failed before it really started...help??

    So I boot to the DVD that I burned from the ISO that I downloaded. It sees the disk and starts spinning up goes through a couple of screens and then it gets to "initializing package manager" above the green progress bar and gives me this error:

    "Unable to create repository
    from URL 'dvd://'.

    Details:
    [|] Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)
    History:
    - Can't copy /var/adm/mount/AP_0x00000001/media.1/media to /var/cache/zypp/raw/RepositoryXVtgFn

    - Can't provide /media.1/media: Can't copy /var/adm/mount/AP_0x00000001/media.1/media to /var/cache/zypp/raw/RepositoryXVtgFn

    Try Again?"

    If I say yes it give me an option to select CD or DVD and to put in an address. If I say no it aborts the install.

    Surely I cannot be the only one to have seen this...can anyone help?

    Did you try running the Media Check from the menu of the dvd? it takes a good few minutes but it will verify if the media is good.

    Well, I feel stupid...did you know that you cannot read a dual layer DVD with a "non-dual layer DVD drive? Duh...

    I will reburn and try again with the proper media.
