Did you check the integrity of the iso images by comparing the md5 and
sha256 checksums of the downloaded image to the ones mentioned on the
ftp site?

MD5 (6.0-RELEASE-amd64-bootonly.iso) = 4328c66c900ef6e6ddc1daf9dd8b731f
MD5 (6.0-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso) = a4e427adaa2bfef868e2bc62d57fbf8d
MD5 (6.0-RELEASE-amd64-disc2.iso) = 2f46d344681c1a82b146b3ed1df68e61

SHA256 (6.0-RELEASE-amd64-bootonly.iso) = afa6eb02845185d1968cce02e752614394f8b9c09fc519ae1b61356c583d6df0
SHA256 (6.0-RELEASE-amd64-disc1.iso) = 449b08c98acc73508219e2a19de0787334fd9237123346b2c7949c3009540170
SHA256 (6.0-RELEASE-amd64-disc2.iso) = 25c3e3da1f2e0a0ecb8a23dd78f35f969cc17eba6072db6a41edab3ecfc2e2d4
