Unable to Install True OS on InspironPC


#1

I tried to install the 7/5/17 release of TrueOS (or, most recent) and was unable to do so. The install simply failed halfway through with the message ‘Unretryable Error.’ FAILED.

I wasn’t trying to do anything fancy, just install it from the .iso image DVD onto a standard Dell Inspiron PC with 16 gigs of RAM onto a 300 gig hd.

Anyone else had this issue?


#2

bios or uefi? whole disk or partition?

did the checksum match the ISO image?

can you try grabbing the IMG and writing to a USB drive?


#3

To answer your question: BIOS/whole disk and I am embarrassed to admit, I
didn’t run a check sum.

I will try the USB IMG and let you know what happens.

Thanks for your helpful reply.

Thanks,
