I've formatted the HD to one large partition. When I boot from the cd I burnt I get to the install option but then get the error messages.
Freebsd installed OK.
it was the same to me but i've solved it (although still havent managed to install pcbsd :evil: but for different reason). try to burn the cd at a lower speed (i hope u burned it to a cd-rw). for example first i burned it at 10x, then a newer drive recognised it no problem, but an older one gave me the message above. then i burned it at 4x, after that it was ok. now i only have problems while partitioning...
