Ticket #1280 (closed defect: fixed)
WinXP fails to install with "Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check)" on Linux 2.6.22 hosts.
|Reported by:||roothorick||Owned by:|
While installing WinXP SP2, the installation fails after the first reboot with the error "Data Error (Cyclic Redundancy Check)".
This has happened on two completely separate machines; one running Gentoo and the other running Ubuntu. In both cases, the host is running a 2.6.22 series kernel. The problem disappeared on the Gentoo machine after upgrading to a 2.6.23 series kernel.
I have found a workaround; setting "Enable Passthrough" on the CD-ROM device in the guest makes the error go away. I have no idea why.
