"EDD: Error 1000 reading sector xxxxx" when booting from 12.04 LiveCD
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 15, 2012
Hi, I am currently using windows vista and I am unfamiliar with Linux and Ubuntu. I would like to try out the latest version of Ubuntu (12.04) on my PC which has 2.80 GHz Pentium 4 HT Processor, 512 MB of RAM, 80 GB HDD, and Intel 865G Motherboard.
I downloaded and burned the ISO of the latest Ubuntu release version and want to dual boot it with windows, but when i boot the LiveCD, i get the following screens:
"EDD: Error 1000 reading sector xxxxxxx"
where xxxxxxx is the sector number.
Can you tell me more about this error and how to get it solved? And is it a problem of my hard disk or something else?

What a mess..
Just right now, I'm using my UBUNTU 12.10 Installation Disk to come Web in order to get a clue what to do now.
error: failure reading sector 0x819
Entering rescue mode...
grub rescue >
What a thing I must type over there!!!
I try to do a new installation but I can hardly:
the blessed system doesn't run..
My machine is an Acer Aspire One Series ZG5 AOA 150 144 HD with three partitions: Ubuntu in all of them (12.10 in two, and Saucy Salamander in the third).
Days ago, I've made a stupid mistake, to delete an old partition but GRUB was in it, so, I create a new partition with Ubuntu 12.10. So, I got a new Grub that way. Working fine.
Yesterday, I've upgraded Ubuntu to version 13.10 in one of my partitions but today, I was working, as usual, with one of my 12.10 installations and accidentally, I pulled out my netbook wire so, when I turned on the machine again, I got the message above.
No idea what is GRUB RESCUE code
Installation CD Error 1000/2000 Reading Sector Error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 1, 2010
Hello there. I'm kind of new to Ubuntu... well Linux in general so please forgive my noobyness (if thats a word...)
Well today I just burned the ISO file onto a CD-R using Windows 7, I made sure it was working and booted correctly on my main computer. The reason I did this is because I'm trying to format my computer which had a virus, since I'm lacking a Windows Master CD, I thought of using a bootable Ubuntu CD to delete my partition and have a fresh Linux OS installed.
When I tried this (I made sure the BIOS booted from CD drive) the boot seems to work fine. A purple screen with a battery figure and a '=' sign and a little man is shown, something like this:
[---][-] = (-.-)
You get the picture, right? Well anyways, after a few minutes some errors pop up in the top left hand corner consisting of "Error 1000 Reading Sector error (xxxx)"
The xxxx's standing for various numbers since the string of errors continue with a new number, then another error comes along "Erro

Installation of 96.43 Nvidia driver in Zenwalk fails: fatal error no screens found (closed)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 11, 2012
Just wondering if there is support with the nouveau driver for dual monitors (TwinView mode) and older nvidia graphics card 96.XX driver version... Or is it easier to install the nvidia driver in Salix Os then Zenwalk? I followed instructions to install nvidia driver in Zenwalk and got fatal screen error no screens found, and tried to modify the xorg file but now it says that nvidia driver instance still exitst and don't know how to remove it or how to re-install it cause according to nvidia-settings the driver is not being used....
I wanted to try a streamlined Slackware based OS that worked well with older 32 bits workstation and Nvidia Quadro4 card but some OS have not optimized the latest linux kernels for older systems..- for example the latest Lubuntu or LXDE Debian OS couldn't not work on my system, it was very slow and kept freezing! So far the LTS versions of Bodhi linux or Xubuntu are fine, Kororra linux with the latest linux kernel is sometimes a little slower (Gnome des
[SOLVED] Installation of 96.43 Nvidia driver in Zenwalk fails: fatal error no screens found
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 11, 2012
I have 2 identical 15 inch monitors which I like to use with Nvidia's "Twinview", rather then as clones of each other. So I need the Nvidia driver. I first installed the recommended LTS kernel version and followed the instructions from Zenwalk wiki: tutorial by Christian Schmidt
''To install the NVidia driver to Zenwalk Linux please complete the following steps:
Edit the file /etc/netpkg.conf with a text editor, in the section "Black_list" remove everything except aaa_base. No one should ever update aaa_base. This will ensure you use the new kernel and sources.
First update your system: netpkg upgrade
Restart your computer, to be running with the new kernel.
Without needing to login, shutdown the X-Server. Change to a textmode console with "CTRL+ALT+F2", login as root and stop the X-Server by running "init 3".
We need the kernelsource to build the NVidia driver kernel module: netpkg kernelsource
The driver should be fetched at the offici
Installation fails at 'Install the base system.' Debootstrap error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 7, 2010
I'm installing Desktop 10.04 with the Alternate CD, due to a RAID1 requirement. Things go fine until the base system is being installed--just after the partitioning. Then I get a lot of Debootstrap warnings that file://cdrom/pool/main/... was corrupt, then "Warning: Couldn't download package ..." There must have been a hundred or more packages that wouldn't load.
This is my third try, with two different verified-for-integrity multiple-times CDs. The second and third try I checked both CDs for integrity prior to the installation attempt. (I switched to another CD after the second failure). Results were the same for all three attempts.
The partitioning has a RAID1 and several ext4 and ext2 partitions as well as a swap partition on each of the two drives.
Is ext4 solid?
I've had previous troubles with trying to install this machine, but this is earlier in the process. (Previous trouble was the system's not finding /boot/grub and dumping me to a grub-rescue> prompt. I did

I've been trying to re-arrange the partitions on my hard drive. I tried to move /dev/sda5 to the right, so that I could pull an empty (unformatted) partition out of my Ubuntu extended partition.
It worked until a certain stage, when the process halted.
I have the details copied and pasted below. Please help me, I really want this to work.
p.s. If any extra information is required, just ask
