Full Version: Error Transferring Install Image
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

I am attempting to install Linux 7.3 on a laptop. It will NOT be a dual boot machine. The laptop has a 30 GB hard drive and 256 MB of memory. I take the default options for almost everything. I select to install the laptop configuration with KDE. It tells me I need 1.3 gig to install the selected packages. When I press the Next button on the Installing Packages screen a progress bar titled "Formatting / filesystem..." comes and goes. A progress bar titled "Transferring install image to hard drive". Next a dialog comes up saying "An error occured transferring the install image to your hard drive. You are probably out of disk space."

I don't believe I am out of disk space. I have chosen to remove all data (windows & linux). I let the loader do the partitioning for me and take the default values for partitioning the disk which are: 47 MB for the boot, 28 GB for the / and 510 MB for the swap.

Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.
Thanks,
Bob

Everything looks good ... is there a possible problem with the install CD?

With RedHat 8.0 the minumum recommend /boot partition is 100mb (I,m not sure what it is with 7.3) ... but that shouldn't be an issue, on a dual boot FedoraCore and RH9 machine that shares the /boot partition I'm only using 16mb.

510MB swap is right and their shouldn't be a problem with 28GB /

Here are a couple references:
http://www.redhat.com/archives/redhat-list...y/msg02011.html

These two suggests linux ide=nodma (just for the install) You would type it instead of pressing enter at the begining of the install).
