You might want to try the 'rawread' script from the link given previously, although I don't see how it would make any difference.

In my case, dd reported read errors with later blocks on the disk, so I have no doubt that the media check failure was accurate.

If I got dd to produce the right checksum off the media, as you did, I would feel pretty safe in skipping the boot-time check. But I can tell you from painful experience that media errors late in the install process are Not Fun--especially if you don't have an alternative system, with everything you need to burn a new disk image.
