Description Arvind PB 2014-02-08 19:14:01 CET
Description of problem:

While attempting to install Mageia 4 (amd64) from a DVD, I encountered the following error message soon after I booted from the DVD: "failed to load ldlinux.c32. Boot failed: press a key to retry...". Rebooting and trying again fails to solve this issue. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Downloaded the Mageia 4 64bit DVD (torrent). 

How reproducible:

Everytime I boot from the installer DVD

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check that CD/DVD is the first boot device
2. Pop in the DVD
3. Start the machine and wait for the error. Press any key to reproduce the error

When I used the identical ISO to write onto an USB, the installation went ahead without any issue. Why did using the CD/DVD (hashsums checked and verified before burning) repeatedly throws this error but the 4 GB USB drive I used didn't? Perhaps this is an aspect that will help towards fixing this bug.
