i have a Redhat Linux 8 CD. i dropped the 1st disk facing the data surface on the floor.
when i scanned it for media test it failed. the other disks were fine.
i tried using Nero CD speed to scan the disk's surface area. it reported a 0.11% damaged part.
when i runned the installer from that disk, anaconda could not continue copying files to the hard drive.
it said that could be due to bad media, corrupted file, or missing file. the iso image of that disk was downloaded from the net. i checked the file size and the necessary files included in CD1 from the Redhat website and they were all fine, 644 MB.
now my suspicion is that it was due to bad media. any suggestions to fix this?
