    I am not sure I fully understand what is going on. From what I understand the following happens
    1. You boot from the Mandriva One cd
    2. You choose "live install"
    3. You partition your harddrive
    4. The installer fails, claiming it can not find the package
    Is this a correct summary of what is happening?

    Hi milad erfanian,

    Check the image the checksum could be currupt, also check your current (cd - dvd) you just downloaded your image too, have you used the check media option before using the (cd - dvd)?

    Try and download the mandriva 2008.0 free image and burn it to another dvd, than try again.

    I hope this is of help.
