    You should download the image file again, as you may have a corrupted CD image file. It looks like the latest version made for the WeTab is a good one:

    Android ICS 4.0.3 for wetab (ENGLISH) (UPDATED) « corvusmod

    The direct link to download:

    http://i.minus.com/1333752299/zTdPrABOL5QXcyqLaC7U-g/dbtGFxIZYQiGj1.iso

    If you have a USB CD drive, it sometimes is better to boot and install from an actual CD.

    Edit: Installing Android-x86 is very similar to installing Linux. See my thread on installing openSUSE Linux for more information:

    I've done everything like you told me and it still not working. I think it's a cache problem, but i'm not sure.
    I've done downloaded the android 4.0 over and over again from the link you send but it still doesnt work.
    You can see bellow some pictures of my installation progress (please help) :

    Are you using an external keyboard? You will need to use a USB keyboard to install.

    And using the up/down arrows you cannot select? Weird.

    Try using the buttons on the tablet. The middle button will advance down to the next lower choice, holding it will advance up. The bottom button will enter the choice selected.

    I don't know what else could be wrong. Maybe try a different keyboard.

    I don't believe it is related to the errors that you are seeing. I get the same thing.

    I tried both a wired and wireless keyboard, and they both worked for me. I didn't go past the drive selection page, as I didn't want to install it.

    I don't use Windows, so I can't tell you if you are doing anything wrong. If it boots up, then it must be good. I booted the CD again, and the tablet buttons don't work for me either. But my keyboard works.

    Do yourself a favor before you drive yourself crazy. Get a different keyboard and try it. Borrow one from someone, one with a cable if you can.

    I've tried 3 different types of keyboards wireless and none worked. I bought a usb wired keyboard and it worked
    I have the android 4.0 now.
    Thanks you a lot for helping me. If wasn't for you i would give up.
    One more time, thank you.

    Interesting...

    I was using the wireless mouse/keyboard combo that came with my HP Pavilion desktop, and it worked.

    Amazon.com: HP - Wireless USB Keyboard and Mouse Combo: Computers & Accessories

    Glad to hear that you were successful, in the end.
