Hello everyone, nice to meet you I'm having some trouble installing the latest iDeneb. I also had exactly the same problems with iAtkos.
The install DVD boots fine. I format the HD with "Disk Utility", select all the necessary patches and drivers, and start installing.
The installation program works fine for a few seconds: it extracts several megabytes of files and creates several folders in the HD. However it reaches a point where it stops with the following error:
"The installer is experiencing errors installing onto "leopard".
The disk may be damaged. Please try installing on another disk."
"leopard" is the name of the partition where I'm trying to install it.
It's not a damaged DVD or a bad ISO. The MD5 checksum of the ISO is good (checked it before burning), and the burned DVD passes the pre-install check.
It always stops at the same file, tapeButton_rollover.tif for Calculator.app or something like that. However, as I said, I'm pretty sure the file isn't damaged. I got exactly the same error on the same file when installing iAtkos. Selecting other kernels or other packages results in similar errors with other files.
It might have something to do with the fact that I'm installing from an IDE DVD drive to an IDE HD drive on a board with a JMicron controller (wasn't this problematic?).
My full specs are:
CPU: E6600 @ 2.4 GHz
RAM: Mushkin 2 x 1 GB
Board: ASUS P5B (uses JMicron JMB363 controller for SATA and IDE drives)
HDD: Maxtor 320 GB (SATA - this is not the one I'm trying to install to) and Seagate 40 GB (IDE - this is where I create the partition for Leopard. I create a full 40 GB partition).
Video card: 7600GT based
Audio: on-board Analog Devices chip
Any help would be much appreciated - I've downloaded almost 8GB so far (I've tried iAtkos and iDeneb) and I still haven't had any good results.
