"invalid or corrupt kernel image" PXE Ubuntu 10.10
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 30, 2010
I have a PXE boot setup. It is confirmed working as I can successfully boot other kernels (full SUSE10 distro).
However, when I dump the Ubuntu 10.10 kernel onto the PXE server, the client always reports the same error:
"invalid or corrupt kernel image"
This is with the basic "vmlinuz-2.6.35-24-generic-pae" file.
1) I've installed Ubuntu DIRECTLY on the system I was trying to boot from and it works fine (that's where I got the kernel from).
2) The file is NOT CORRUPT as I did an md5sum on the PXE server and the client and they have the same hash.
3) All files in the base /tftpboot directory with the same ownership/permissions.
<Original that works>

ISO to USB UNetbootin "invalid or corrupt kernel image"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 3, 2012
This problem isn't specially with Ubuntu Live CDs, but I am going crazy trying to figure out how to put an ISO onto a USB stick to boot off.
First, I'll go into GParted and reformat my usb stick to a FAT32.
Then I'll download an ISO or two from FreeNAS (the actual website, not the one that comes with UNetbootin), just as an example, I'll download FreeNAS-8.0.3-RELEASE-p1-x64.iso or FreeNAS-amd64-LiveCD-0.7.2.8191.iso or FreeNAS-amd64-LiveCD-0.7.2.7903.iso. I'll let UNetBootin do it magic work.
Next, I take out the USB stick and put it into another machine and try and boot into the USB stick. But it doesn't work because it gives me the "invalid or corrupt kernel image" error. However, if I let UNetbootin download its own image, it works. But mine doesn't.
I have downloaded these isos over and over, but they haven't worked. However, I burned all of these ISOs to a CD and they work fine.
So...what am I doing wrong and how can I fix it?
13.04 Desktop/unetbootin md5 correct, but "invalid or corrupt kernel image"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 2, 2013
Hi all. I'm trying to install 13.04 desktop, 64 bit on a USB. I've done it before, but it's now it's not working. When I make the USB and try to boot it, I get the dreaded "invalid or corrupt kernel image". The md5 is fine, and when I "test the disk for defects" instead of trying to boot ubuntu, I get "Check finished: no errors found". Anyone have any idea what's up??
[Edit: I'm on a ThinkPad, by the way: T60p]
PS. Unrelated question for after I get beyond the previous issue. I'd like to replace casper-rw by a partition. How do I tell ubuntu to look for a partition instead of the file?
invalid or corrupt kernel image,
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 5, 2011
I installed unetbootin, and picked linux mint because i heard mint is for beginners.
I use HP mini, and connected USB drive.
after installation is completed, restart machine, and changed boot order,
this was on screen;
"Invalid or corrupt kernel image"
press tab key for options.
RedHat 7.1 Invalid or corrupt kernel image
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 8, 2001
I recently downloaded the two image ISO files for RedHat Linux 7.1 from RedHat and burned them into two CDs according to Nero's website instructions. It generated me a bootable Linux CD, that shows the initial install text screen but as I choose any install mode it goes:
Invalid or corrupt kernel image.
I tried to fool it by booting from a DOS floppy and running d:/dosutils/autoboot.bat, and, much to my chagrin, it worked... at least for a while, the graphical installation goes as far as formatting the hard disk, after that it invariably freezes.
I imagine it has, somehow, something to do with that corrupt kernel image it mentioned before, which might be a problem caused by Nero's burning? The thing is that the CD is bootable and I am able to see its whole content.
I am stuck. Any suggestions?

Invalid or Corrupted Kernel error on multiple distro cds
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 17, 2007
I was happily running kubuntu until I wanted jack audio to work, which it wasn't, so I tried the demudi distro... it broke mid-install, and now every attempted distribution's install or live CD gives me a message along the lines of "Invalid or corrupted kernel" including: 64 studio, slackware 11, ubuntu 6.06 and 6.10, as well as kubuntu.
In searching around, I find that the suggested solution is always the MD5SUM which I don't think is the problem. my suspicion is that the installation is somehow trying to use the half-installed kernel, but I really don't know. I can't figure out what else it could be.
I'm pretty new to linux, and am running a toshiba a105 satellite laptop. Thank you!
"corrupt kernel image" when booting from disc 1
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 26, 2006
Hi, I'm trying to install Fedora Core. What I do is put in the disc 1 to boot, and then it says boot:
I put linux check and it tells me that the kernel image is corrupt.
This is the seconed burn that did this, what's up? Can anybody tell?
Or am I supposed to put in a different command for boot: ?
P.S.: Forgive me for having this in two different forums, I put it in "newbies" first, but then thought it would do better here, thanks for concideration.
Update in grub.cfg file for loading new kernel image in Ubuntu 11.04
location: linuxexchange.com - date: August 22, 2014
I am new to Linux. I am compiling Linux kernel (ver: 22.214.171.124) in gcc in traditional manner in VMware machine in Ubuntu (kernel version - 2.6.38-8-generic) 11.04 version. I am unable to find, where to update about newly compiled kernel in the grub.cfg file. I updated the newly created image version name in the existing image. Then VMware didn't able to load new kernel. I have searched in internet but I didn't find. So anyone can help me, to update in the grub.cfg and to successfully load new kernel. Few things about what I have done:
Make bzImage to create image file.
Make modules_install && make install to install modules and then
sudo mkinitramfs -o initramfs.img-2.6.34 2.6.34. Then
sudo gedit grub.cfg. In that at the mementry I updated the version of vmlinuz and initrd from 2.6.38-8 to 126.96.36.199.
This is I have done.
