View Full Version : [ubuntu] Stuck in LiveCD: Why do I keep getting Disk Input/Output error on install?

November 29th, 2010, 06:37 AM
Hey guys, I have droped windows 7 with about 6 DVDs of my personal data backed up, but cant seem to get ubuntu to install.

If I delete the entire contents of my harddrive, and let the installed format the entire disk, the install always hangs on the step where it is "copying files". It eventually times out with the "Input/Output error" while copying data, and says that it is either a faulty Hard drive (works fine in windows) or faulty disk drive (Works fine in windows) What do you think the problem is?

Thank you very much for your time.
