[SOLVED]Can't Install ubuntu 11.10 : Input/output error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 5, 2012
SOLVED: it was a problem in the ram memory module. I recommend the ultibateboot cd for tests
This is a known problem but i couldn't fix with what I've found on web.
Task and error:
Install ubuntu 11.10 on an empty HDD.I get a Errno5(input/output error) always on the same stage (around 30%). The systemn suggestion is about burning the CD in low speed(but in this case is a flash drive) and checking the HDD for errors.A single time, instead of the error above, I got a 'the following file didn't match its source copy on the cd/dvd - target/usr/lib/cups/filler/hpcups" then another one ofr another file, the finally errno5

"[errno 5] input/output error" installing ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 1, 2008
Alright I'm sorry I'm being such a nuisance but I think I figured out the partitioning but around 23% in the install it gives me one of two error messages.
The first one is [errno 5] input/ouput error. It then recomends I either burn a new cd, clean it, or clean my cd drive lens. I can't imagine it would be the cd since before installing I checked the integrity and it said it was all go. The other thing it said was that maybe my hard drive was ****** up, and this was what the other error said as well. I am going to shoot myself if the hard drive is messed up, it was working yesterday with XP, why would it all of a sudden be messed up when I'm trying to install ubuntu??? The last thing it recommends is to try installing again in a cooler environment. Well yeasterday it was around 80 degrees so I thought hmmmmm ok and i tried this morning when its gotta be only 60 out. same error.
I'm really trying to give ubuntu a chance but i feel like it is not trying to help me!!! GRRR. sorry.

ubuntu 11.10 installation error 5 input/output
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 12, 2011
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 11.10. i am getting the following error:
This particular error is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. It may help to clean the CD/DVD, to burn the CD/DVD at a lower speed, to clean the CD/DVD drive lens (cleaning kits are often available from electronics suppliers), to check whether the hard disk is old and in need of replacement, or to move the system to a cooler environment.
i have only one RAM so i can't remove it also my RAM and hard disks are working properly.
chown R results in Input./Output error (ubuntu Dapper Drake)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 21, 2006
Thinking I am doing something smart, I recursively changed the group of one directory_name (with many subfolders) on my removable drive:
chown -R my_login_name:users directory_name
Previously the ownership was login_name:login_name
Well, I have a big problem now. I can not access folders, they have unknown size, ownership, group, date, etc. If I try to do anything, I get an Input/Output error.
Help! Is there a way to reverse/undo the damage?
Thanks for any hints
Ubuntu 11.04 Crashes Input/output error
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 13, 2011
I have a Lenovo Thinkpad W510 with Ubuntu 11.04 and separate ext4 partitions for / /opt and /home. I have been having a lot of crashes with 10.04 and decided to try 11.04. Unfortunately the computer still crashes. I've been through the forums and some people seem to have similar problems but still no solution.
The crash I've seen lately has to do with input/output errors. I can navigate the computer but Iam unable to open applications. I get a message saying Failed to execute child process "name-of-process" (Input/output error). I cant open some of the folders in my home directory and the icon in nautilus changes from a folder to a blank file.
If I do a ssh from another computer I get "sh: /usr/bin/xauth: Input/output error" when logged in. I cant do anything with the computer and it wont even take shutdown command.
The only option is to force shutdown because it wont take any command or buttons.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Ubuntu installation error: input/output error on /dev/sda
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 3, 2014
I was installing Ubuntu desktop onto my laptop via USB and I got this error, input/output error on /dev/sda. I don't really know how to fix it so does anyone have any help?
Here is the full story:
I had Windows 8.1 on the laptop but I didn't want it anymore as I got a new laptop (basically, I don't want to dual boot I want to remove windows and install Ubuntu). I have installed Lubuntu on my friends old laptop so I already knew the steps of writing the image, booting it from a USB etc. I burned the image using UniversalUSBInstaller. So far so good. I plugged it in, changed it to automatically boot from the USB first in the BIOS and I selected try Ubuntu before installing to check everything was working ok. It was, so I opened the installer and the installation stopped about 20mins through with an error saying, the installer had crashed. I thought it was just a bug so I tried again and got the same error. I plugged the USB back into my windows laptop and re-downloaded the .iso image f
Installing Ubuntu 14.04 on windows7: fsyncing/closing/dev/sda: input/output error. Partitions not detected and keyboard and mouse stop working
location: linuxexchange.com - date: April 9, 2015
I have a Dell XPS 15z (l511z) latptop with windows 7 and I wish to install a dual-boot installation of ubuntu 14.04.2.
When booting from USB I get to the live installation and everything seems to work.
I quickly get an error in a pop-up window
Error fsyncing/closing/dev/sda: input/output error
When pressing retry the pop-up error persists, and when pressing ignore the installation can continue.
However, as soon as I push a button on my keyboard, both keyboard and mouse stop working.
I have tried plugging in both external USB mouse and keyboard but they stop working after a very short while also.
Sometimes the mouse works for so long that I can continue the installation prompts to the window where I select how and where I wish to install.
However, no partitions are detected on the drive.
The only option present is formating the entire drive and then installing linux on the empty drive, not what I wish to do.
When logged in to my windows I can confirm that I infact do have partition
