So i want to install freenas on an old pc but i cant seem to install it. I've tried installing it on hdd and on an ssd (tested and working fine). The freenas image is on a cd becouse the board wont boot from usb. The strange thing that happens is the install steps start 1of 4 and the system turns of randomly, sometimes on 40% sometimes on 80% all on step 1 of install. After that i need to reformat the drive because then when i try to install it instantly says install failed. I have noticed some error while freenas loads, here they are. The specs of the pc are as follows, and this is not the final build. Mobo: supermicro pdsma+ , 2gb ddr2 RAM, wd blue 240gb and kingston a400 120gb ssd, pcix supermicro controller (sat2-mv8 for extra sata ports) intel celeron (64bit cant remember bu i also have a core 2 duo 4300).

Your CD-ROM, installation CD, or both, are bad.
it had a problem with the cd becouse it doesn't like from what I've seen to be burned on faster settings, when i set to slow it burns freenas to the cd as it should, but it still restarts on the first step of install

FreeNAS has a pretty good forum. Go there and have Cyberjock or Jgrecco beat you up one side and down the other. But really, your hardware is not up to the task.
