Failure reading data from .iso (optical drive) at random locations

Reported by: smiba Owned by:
Component: DVD Version: VirtualBox 6.1.10

Guest type: other Host type: Mac OS X


I'm trying to install CentOS 8 in a virtual machine, but the VM keeps getting bad data from the ISO file.

This results in the system getting stuck booting into the installer or crashes at the disk verification step at varying procentages.

I know the ISO itself is flawless, its sha256sum matches the specified hash from CentOS. To me it seems like VirtualBox is having issues with providing the OS/Kernel with the right data.

I've also tried installing it with VirtualBox 6.0.22 and 5.2.42, both having the same issue. (5.2.42 has some graphical glitches as well, but likely unrelated)

I'm running OS X 10.15.5 on a MacbookPro16,1

How to reproduce:

  1. Make new VM in Virtualbox on OS X, with the iso CentOS-8.2.2004.x86_64-minimal.iso
  2. Let it boot the iso
  3. Very likely to fail, is not run it a second time or try to complete the installation

Let me know if there is any other information I can provide
