    Oracle Linux 6.3: Very Long Delay During Installation

      After booting the system using the Free Oracle Linux CD-ROM (Ver. 6.3) and selecting the GRUB option "Install or upgrade existing installation" the terminal goes blank for a very long time. On terminal widow #4, however, the message:

      ERR kernel:Buffer I/O error on device fd0, logical block 0

      ...scrolls by for what seems like a very long time (4-5 minutes) before being replaced with another message:

      WARNING NetworkManager: <warn> error requesting auth for org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.enable-disable-network: (26) Remote Exception invoking org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1.Authority.CheckAuthorization() on /org/freedesktop/PolicyKit1/Authority at name org.freedesktop.PolicyKit1: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.Spawn.ExecFailed: Cannot launch daemon, file not found or permissions invalid

      ...and then, after choosing not to verify the installation media, installation finally begins.

      How can I speed this process up?
