    Errno 5 Input/Output error

    Ok, I get this Errno5 error EVERY time I've tried to install the 9.04 final. I had previously used the beta and it installed fine. I burned 2 cds with 2 different isos (redownloaded them) and even redownloaded it AGAIN and used a live USB, BUT EVERY DAMN TIME ERRNO5. same spot. without fail.

    Same issue. Its 23% every single time. I had this issue with hardy. All other ubuntu versions from edgy to intrepid worked perfectly. HArdy and Jaunty have this issue for me.
    I'm desperately look for a solution.

    I had the same problems.
    Checked Hard drive - no problems
    Checked MD5checksum - no problem
    reformated harddrive - no success
    reburned cd at low speed - no success
    burned on DVD - no success

    at one point I pulled out my CD-ROM Drive from my LAPTOP and put it back in - success. Worked like a charm.

    I read in other threads that some people removed some RAM bars which helped them.... a miracle.

    So it seems it is always somewhat hardware related...

    just my 50 cent

    Re: Errno 5 Input/Output error

    Mmmm the ram thing didn't work for me... I thought maybe it could be something to do with my TV card, so I took it away but didn't work either.
    I tried burning more than one cd image at different speeds and didn't work. Tried booting from a memory stick and the same error appears after a 44% of the installation as it always does.
    This is making me sick!
    Please, I need some help...
    Thanks

    Solved for me!

    I got thr same "(Errno 5)input/output error" all the time (at 56% mark of the install) what ever I did. Then I tried to flash Netbook Remix -version to my USB -stick. That made the trick and installation succeed! (maybe there's some bug in the ISO writing to USB stick, but flashing the IMG works?)

    So, one possible solution is to install Netbook Remix -version of Ubuntu 9.04

    Good luck from Sunny Spain!

    Finally i decided to install ubuntu 8.04 from de cd (everything went perfect) and upgrated to 8.10 and then to 9.04. Ubuntu Jaunty is working perfectly (except that i have no audio on tvtime... but that's other issue).
    Thanks anyway

    Re: Errno 5 Input/Output error

    I had the same error repeatedly. As a last resort I put the Ubuntu CD in the Toshiba DVD-ROM drive on my PC instead of the Sony DVD-RW drive. It loaded perfectly.

    I had previously burned an additional copy of the CD at 4x speed, cleaned the CD etc - all to no avail.
