I'm booting with my Porteus CD, then running the Porteus installer. When it pops open the console text box and says to continue hit enter, I hit enter, and then it says "Failed to install with error code '2'." It's hard to see the message because the text screen closes before I can really see it..I had to record it with my cell phone so I could play it back to read it. :roll:
I've tried two different CPUs. I've tried two different hard drives. I've tried two different SATA cables. I've tried two different installs of Porteus (3.1 x64 and 3.0.1 x32), and all the same error.
Again, since I've done it plenty of times successfully with these very same install CDs, it must be something I am doing, but I admit that the "error code 2" is not helping me figure it out.
