Checksum mismatch

Post by joshs922 »

Good afternoon.. Attempting install of 21.09.08 via USB on a Dell Precision M3400 laptop.. Successfully wrote the iso to a USB stick. It boots to splash screen, checks for sufficient RAM then begins to copy the image to swap-based memdisk, then fails for checksum mismatch and won't proceed. I checked the sha256 checksums on the iso downloaded from the US mirror and its a mismatch, and same with an iso from a Canadian mirror. Would love to try it out.. am I missing something?

Thanks,
Josh

same here, the iso sha256 matches. Used dd to write to USB (in linux).
Specific error log:

Code: Select all

==> Mount swap-based memdisk
==> Replicate system image to swap-based memdisk
cannot receive new file system stream: checksum mismatch ...,.. MB/s
Enter full pathname of the shell of RETURN for /rescue/sh
Hitting RETURN says:

using dump terminal setting.
The hardware is:
* Dell XPS 17
* 32GB Ram
* 1 TB sdd
* 4 Thunderbolt

sudo dd if=GhostBSD-21.11.24.iso of=/dev/sda
used to write iso to 32gb usb stick.
Secure boot from bios is disabled - not bios issue likely.
If anybody could point on manual or debugging or where to go from this point would be greatly appreciated. Oh, btw, was trying to install the 13 FreeBSD - no luck either, it does not simply boots, writes some messages similar to GhostBSD and quits.

small update:
got it working, able to boot and see the DE, however, the setup does not work. No clue wht it could be, but installation media seams unstable, or some another issue. Linux/ubuntu works on this machine well though.

yep, did pulled latest build. Same for freeBSD and other BSD distros. Unfortunately will go with linux in this machine as it looks wireless network driver not supported. Well, was about to get into the BSD world, but mbe later.. Thanks for your time
