Puzzling installation issues!

I have an HP dv7-1285dx.
First, I attempted to install openSuse 11.2 KDE via the live disk. A small ways through the installation, I was told that the image could not be properly copied to the disk.
Then, I attempted to do it via the standard DVD, and a small ways through the installation I kept receiving errors saying that the packages could not be found, and gives me the option to skip. I can’t install unless I skip all 600-something of them.
Please advise, as I really would like to give this gorgeous distro a try!

You need to verify the media - see here

Remember to burn the image dead slow!!


I’ll give that a try and report back. Thank you for the suggestion!

Worked perfectly. Thanks for the help!

You are welcome;)
