  • Could you re-try burning?  I have seen this type of error many times, and it seems to be related to a bad burn...

    Post back with your results...

  • I burnt 3 copies and none of them work unfortunately so im guessing it either the way im burning it or a problem when i downloaded it.


    iv asked a friend to copy one of his for me to see that it anit my computer.  even tho it meets the recommended specs if could just be my hardware is not compatable. ill keep trying different things tho


    thanks for your post if you got any other sugestions there very welcome

  • I had this error yesterday exactly, my solution was to re-download the ISO and (as before) I had it mounted as a virtual drive.

    This time it installed, though still doens't work!

    Hope helped! Daniel
