When you first boot off the image one of the options is to check the
files there.  I forget exactly what the text says but it is something
like that.  If that succeeds then the image is ok.  It will take some
time and if I remember correctly at times it seems to be doing
nothing, be patient.

If that is ok but you still can't install note down *exactly* the
error message.  Telling us that it is not able to find 'some file' is
not good enough.
