Don't care about prevoius installation, except /home in sdc2 which I want to keep, if possible. Suse x64 on sdc1 started not to work properly some months ago (system hanging up after 5 min because it went into read-only filesystem - thread here, unsolved). Problem left unsolved for months. NOw I have to solve it. Attempted to repair via install-dvd, filesystem corrupted, no chance. Tried to restore image of sdc1 before accident, successfull, but problem still there. I decide to remove the 32 bit OS (XP and SUSE 32) on sda. FOrmat sda during installation. Several WRONG DIGEST errors during installation. INstallation aborted (but sda and sdb formatted already) reboot + installation media integrity check: failed (error reading sector XXXXXX) reboot + install-DVD SUSE 10.3 + installation media integrity check: also failed Reboot + firmware check --> 3 errors (see pic) [IMG]https://doc-00-48-docs.googleusercontent.com/docs/secure/rb76hs62dof3nkvdingba5cedl9ltjag/rchgb501n2vfqu78u494u90rgmkpe8ir/1266580800000/01140622904924232700/*/0BwPOj_lrQXE_NDRhMTVjZWItN2U2ZS00NDVmLTg0OTgtODdlYjVmZTI5NDli[/IMG] What to do now? please help! thanks in advance Alex Tried to install SUSE 11 (Distributions)
