    Hi

    I download osx lion today via the appstore and then burned it on dvd (maybe that last part was not a good idea, but I like fresh installs on a clean disk).

    But when installing I notice the following error and i'm not able to install osx lion, hell will I be able to download the lion app again when I finish installing leopard again.

    Anybody seen this? and anybody has a solution for this...maybe it's just a bad dvd but I will see after a 2nd try.

    included the log file of the failing install.

    dvd corrupted

    After I tried numerous times of reinstalling again with Leopard (for some reason the DVD reader was not working perfectly and suddenly it came through), I found out that the file is not readable at some time (only possible to read 800mb). So apparently the DVD was corrupted or the file download was corrupted.

    Now back to leopard (10.6) need to upgrade to 10.6.8 and then we can try to install lion again...Hopefully without any headaches.
