With the new CDs, the boot manager of the CD-ROM complains that it can't read the CD-ROM, as soon as I press enter on an option like 'install Ubuntu'. i do not believe... Disabling floppy in bios solves the problem (with my mainboard). http://orgias.org/i-o-error/i-o-error-during-boot-install-kubuntu-7-10-199-646.html

Not having other applications running also frees up more RAM that can be used by the Memory test.

Some live cd's (like Slax 6) hide the current mount point of the cd (to something like /mnt/live), in these cases you will need to either manually mount the cd drive so it is mounted at the normal mount point (eg /mnt/hdc).
I guess I'll have to put up a bit more with [email protected]#$%^ Windows... I have a ASUS x83vm-x1 and tried to install Kubuntu 8.10 from a live CD. If your system is running at its limits due to overclocking or your components are running at the top of their temperature range, small external influences can push your system over the edge, resulting in a terrible death. Dimitrios Symeonidis (azimout) wrote on 2008-10-09: #19 hmmm, it seems this might be related to bad memory modules (which would explain the ide=nodma solution).
currently I am using the SD card LIVE CD as i have no other operating system on my hard drive please help!!!! ericsingo (ericsingo) wrote on 2009-06-28: #13 The Most Cost-effective Solution After I did some google on this error and decided to try all these solutions. The recommended way to test FireWire ports using BurnInTest is to connect an external hard disk via the FireWire port and test the connectivity with the disk drive using the BurnInTest disk test. The first times it worked, however after several times it started failing and did ever since.
First of all, I've never seen such issue before (7.x, 8.x). https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/172937 I have tried switching the cables, the result was the same as before.

Thank you everybody for your help. news That is, aborting 10.3 install and doing media check on itself fails! Here are some general comments about occasional system crashes. Not an easy question.
The image did burn successfully on the CD and even on the SD card! For example in Fedora can use KPackageKit in KDE from the Fedora menu -> Applications -> System Software management or in Gnome from the System menu -> Administration -> Add/Remove Software, search for qt and select the Qt toolkit (qt) and Qt Gui-related libraries (qt-x11) packages for install. I will test mem and report again. have a peek at these guys asked 5 years ago viewed 71000 times active 11 months ago Blog Stack Overflow Podcast #91 - Can You Stump Nick Craver?
Finally I found a strange solution from other forum, it worked but I do not know why: I wrote zeros in the partition where I wanted to install ubuntu. None, the status of the bug is updated manually. I have 2x 120 gb disks SATA running off a "pesudo-RAID" card configured with each disk in "striping mode" Any help is appreciated....
If any bad blocks are found, they are added to the bad block inode to prevent them from being allocated to a file or directory.

This is a joke. Note that the testing process itself doesn't touch any existing files on the hard disk or floppy disk. You can then copythe libQtWebKit files (from the newly created ./usr/lib) to /lib64 using "cp ./usr/lib/libQtWebKit .so.* /lib64" (these instructions were based on installing on a 64bit system). check my blog I mean that you can read anywhere this disk on any OS > without read errors, but not in the installer. > > -- > [Errno 5] Input/Output Error during Live CD Installation > https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/245794 > You received this bug notification because you are a direct subscriber > of the bug. > > Status in Ubuntu: Confirmed > > Bug description: > I didn't find the exact description here for the bug I noticed, though it > was discussed on > > http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=600126 > > very intense.

Hopefully this will prove useful in debugging: I noticed some odd messages on my girlfriend's computer, but not on mine. Check with your hardware manufacturer(s) from time to time in case they have released new software that fixes some problems they may have found. Here is my success story. Q.

Thought it originally to be a bad burn from ISO, but not the case..." **UPDATE*** I finally got Feisty installed on a Dell Latitude C610.
