Default Re: nForce 4 corrupting data written to HDD

Yes it reads differently every time. I also used sha512sum with same results - different reads. The iso file is 620 MB but when I try the same with smaller files I get constant reads.

As I said, I have corrected other photos by just copying them once more. I believe it doesn't depend on the file but some part of data stream gets corrupted somewhere.

Additionally, please provide output from the following commands:
cat /proc/cpuinfo

uname -a
Yesterday I updated BIOS to 0603 which is the most recent one.
Here you are:

I think that the photo corruption happened using a 64 bit kernel if that does help.
