Ubuntu 9.10 isn't loading properly.


I'm trying to run 9.10 from my flash drive, but it won't load properly. I end up with repeating messages of "end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0", and "Buffer I/O error on device fd0, logical block 0" for a bit, then it goes away, and then repeats "This is normally a bug some applications using the D-Bus library. process normally arguments to dbus_pending_call_set_notify() were incorrect, assertion "pending != NULL" failed in file dbus-pending call .c line 596." really fast, and keeps on repeating until I manually shut my laptop off. I have no idea why this is happening. So if anybody could help me out here, it will be greatly appreciated.

Are you running this as a Live CD/USB?

You probably have something wrong with the USB and/or corrupted download.

I hate to say this but;

Format the USB drive. (Non-quick, LONG format)

Then re-download the image and re-put it on your USB stick.

Thats MOST LIKELY what it is. At least, I would I highly recommend doing that before trying to diagnose other, more obfuscated idiosyncrasies.
