I am writing from a DVD install downloaded from Mageia and burned onto a
DVD. I also did a SUM check and all was fine. I tried to install 3-4
times and I got the same messages as you. I then realized that,
depending on some boards you may need to install with "NO ACPI" (btw
this happened quite regularly with Mandriva".
Then install with "NO ACPI" on my machine went well and it was all
installed 20 minutes later with no hiccups.
Give it a try.
