Postby SLiguykyle » Thu Nov 12, 2009 11:10

did you update the installer ?

also, did you check the md5sum of your iso and burn the iso as slow as possible?

the md5sum all checked out. the installer hadn't been updated. however. even after updating it, it's giving me something very similar. except i noticed that it's called

raise SystemError, "pvremove failed"
SystemError: pvremove failed

so i dont know what to do. i'll just burn another ISO and hope that it works?

turns out it was the installer. i guess the md5sum doesn't always mean it'll work. despite the integrity check working, it just wasn't up to par. i reburned the ISO onto a new DVD, went to install it and only had my (computer specific) hard drive issues that i had to work around. this has been solved. +1 for being back on sabayon :D
