View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 8.10

November 24th, 2008, 12:07 AM
I am not able to install Ubuntu 8.10. I have always been able to install the previous version 8.04 along with Windows OS. I was advised from the forum that always install Windows first, and then install Ubuntu and it always worked for me. But, with this new release 8.10, when I insert the CD and boot, and choose "Install Ubuntu" from the Menu, the message will appear after 2-3 minutes,

"Buffer I/O Error on Device Sr0". I tried the following options, but still didn't work.

Downloaded Ubuntu 8.10 again as I thought the previous file may have been corrupted.

Formatted the whole HD, reinstalled Windows, and then tried to install Ubuntu again, but same error message appeared.

Any feedback will be appreciated.

Have you tried the Alternate CD?

Call me stupid, but on a download site www.ubuntu.com, it does give the option for Alternate CD anymore for 8.10 version

Am I missing something?
