New Mythdora install FAILED
I'm trying to install mythdora ver. 12 on sb2 on a multiboot Windows7/Linux system. The live cd boots fine, I run the Mythdora web setup program close the browser, click finish, wait a minute and click on "install to hard drive" It asks me what language, what time zone, and then when it starts to install it stops and I get this error:
Error processing drive:
TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S203B
This device may need to be reinitialized.
REINITIALIZING WILL CAUSE ALL DATA TO BE LOST!
I select "reinitialize drive" and the loading "animation" starts, I can hear the cd drive start up and then after a minute or 2 it stops and the animation disappears. Thinking I burned a bad CD I burned another one at the slowest speed. Then I tried it again with the new disk, selected "verified and boot" and the same thing happened.
So I decided to try an older version and downloaded the version 10 live cd. This time when I get to the "install to hard drive" step it tells me I need administration priviliges and asks for a log in and password. Nowhere in the initial setup did I see where to enter a password so I tried mythtv;mythtv , mythdora;mythdora , root;root , and my login and password I wanted to use for it once it was install, but EVERYTHING FAILED. I then hooked up my external USB 2 DVD burner, thinking maybe my internal drive is going bad, snd tried installing from there with the same results. 2 drives could be bad I guess, but I use both of them everyday and they work fine for everything else.
I really can't believe it has to be this dificult JUST to watch TV on my f**%$ng computer with Linux!! Did I mention everything works fine if I use the TV Tuner card with WinBlows? I just built this machine and it has the latest Intel I7 processor, a pretty good MSI motherboard, 16G Ram, a 120G SSD, and 1T hard drives, with a Nvidia GTX 560 video card. The machine's not a super powerhouse but it's not junk either, and this SHOULD work fine.
If anyone has seen these errors and knows a workaround I would appreciate a clue, 'cause I'm outta them. Or if Mythdora live cd iso can be installed to a flash drive, and someone can tell me the proceedure, I'd sure appreciate it. I REALLY don't want to go back to MicroCrap just to watch TV and transfer my VHS tapes to DVD.
