    No I would not suspect that. Are you doing this over WiFi? If so that is a Very bad Idea. Any drops in the WiFi signal can/will cause the download to fail.

     

    What part of the world are you? Do you have some type of Firewall running on your router?

     

    My download and install just finished and the system is booting for the first time. So it is not a server error in my part of the world.

     

    Next option is you have failing hardware. Like the RAM has gone bad. As they say S.h.i.t happens.

     

    Best to take it to Apple and have the whole system checked out. We could go round and round with this. RAM, Hard drive cable, faulty logic board or a host of other stuff.

    I've got the AppleCare, looks like I'm covered for another two years.

     

    Interesting my download just failed on my External Hard Disk, giving the same 'Failed to verify InstallESD.dmg' error!

     

    It can't be a faulty external hard disk as well!

    Lets HOPE it was the WiFi.

     

    Good Luck with Ethernet.

    Glad you got it fixed and hopefully it wasn't at your expense.
