MM Beta: "Error 5: Input/Output Error" when installing from a live USB
I just recently downloaded Maverick Meerkat Beta and installed it to a USB flash drive using USB Creator. Now, after booting the flash drive and trying to install it onto my netbook's SSD, I get an "Input/Output Error (Code 5)" just as the installer is halfway through "Copying files". I know the SSD isn't failing, because if it was, it wouldn't even format, let alone let an OS install halfway.

How come whenever I post a thread or blog entry I get 100x more people viewing than replying or commenting? I know this may not be very important to you, but to me this is critical. Yet I still get no credit. Apparently, no one cares, so I'm leaving this subforum.
You have have been a member long enough to know that it is bad manners to use urgent in a thread title. Yes, we know it is critical to you but for those that volunteer their time your problems are not more important then anyone else's.
that pretty simple the drive your are installing it to is not mounted. this could mean many things like the module is not being loaded that allows the os to mount the drive. no input no output.
would have wrote this question like this.
I am trying to install Maverick Meerkat Beta from a usbflash drive. to my sata or pata drive i have already fdisk and formatted my disk and am ready to install. I have not fdisk my drive and the installer cant mount the drive. I have fdisk my drive and formatted it to ext4 or 3 or 2 or what ever. and set up a swap partition. and still unable to mount the drive and install take your time it is only beta and there is a many stable distro's out there.
little info please. the only thing I get out of your info is you have a bad image and the packages are corrupted.
I think its a bug Kenny
when I was installing other day using my own nfluxos mm build I installed from usb
but didnt use usb-creator
and I noticed that ubiquity was acting weird, it started copy files to hdd before I even
gave it my username,etc
it also saw my drives as sda(usb) sdb and sdc
when usually it sees my first hdd as sda?
I noticed too that I have received numerous updates to both ubiquity and usb-creator since then
plus now new kernel 2.6.35-20 coming in today...
