    Installation error: no kernel available.


    I am new to Linux and am trying to install version 10.1 to a slave hard drive of 10gb. Also with a master hard drive of 70gb with windows XP. After partitioning the slave HD during installation, using the boot CD roms I downloaded from the finnish mirror for this on distrowatch.com, I get the following message (This is after assigning the mount points.):
    "An error occured
    INTERNAL ERROR: no kernel available
    MDK::Common::various::internal-error() called from /usr/bin/perl-install/"
    This jargon then goes on for about a paragraph which I did not have the time to copy out, but is available if absolutely neccessary. Can anybody help, or redirect me to a good information source for this kind of problem.

    Hi - It could just be an incomplete / corrupted download. They happen from time to time.

    When you download you need to check the MD5SUM to make sure yoru download was complete and accurate!

    Thanks, but are you saying the CD ISO wrote to the Cd incorrectly or the actual ISO I downloaded was faulty?

    It's not possible to tell, but it could be either of those. Getting a good copy of your chosen distro can sometimes be difficult. I get mine with magazines, where I think there's more quality control their cover disks.
