Default Error mounting install image!!!
I have been using FreeBSD for about 6 months now as my primary workstation. I decided to check out PC-BSD to investigate the bells & whistles. I downloaded the DVD iso and tried to install but the install bombs out indicating an error mounting the install image. I looked around and see that there are some threads indicating the problem might be that FreeBSD does not support the DVD/CD drive. However, that seems unlikely in my case since I installed FreeBSD with no problems and never had to do anything special to use my DVD/CD.

Nevertheless, I booted into single user mode and did a;

# ls /dev/*cd*

I have acd0 and cd0…

I tried mounting both unsuccessfully. acd0 was the device name under FreeBSD as well. What am I missing? Is my only option to install from a flash drive?


Here is a snippet;

Have you verified your downloaded iso image with md5 first? Also I'd recommend to burn your verified iso to RW media- they are tend to be much higher quality that write once discs.

Thanks for the tip. I re-burned the DVD at a slower rate and it worked fine. Completed the install process.

Hi. I'm having the same problem getting the DVD mounted. Can't past the
install process.
Now, the difference with me is that I've purchased a shrink wrapped
DVD for PC-BSD from freebsdmall.com. This is PC-BSD version 7.0 (fibonacci edition.)

I've tried installing FreeBSD 7.0, that I also purchased from the same place, and
that worked fine, got to sysinstall and everything.

Any pointers on what to do here so that I can get PC-BSD to install. ?

Your response is greatly appreciated.

Rewritable, huh? That might be the problem. I've had problems with booting rewritables that were not closed sessions. Try a standard DVD-R and run a md5 sum (in a terminal, type md5 /path/to/file.iso) on your image. If that fails, you may need to download an image using gotbsd.net.

You can check the MD5 sum with the command md5 in Linux using a terminal with the command md5sum /path/to/file.iso Sorry about that. There's a program to check on Windows, but I don't know what that is... Downloading from gotbsd.net should download a complete image for you if your MD5 sum doesn't check out with PC-BSD's download page.

I've heard a few cases of people taking their hard drives out, installing the drives in other computers and just installing from there. I've installed PC-BSD on multiple machines without problems, so I don't have much experience with boot failure. I think I had one bad image, though. Good luck.

winmd5sum is a decent program for checking md5 checksums against files (like iso) under Windows systems. I've used it for years along side FreeBSDs md5 utility.
