I/O failure
« on: September 20, 2008, 06:55:36 pm »
Hi guys,
I bought a abit board listed as working in the hardware list.  I tried using a usb gigabit adapter that I previously had working out of the box with linuxmce on another mainboard.  When doing the DVD install I got the error message "i/o failure" in several attempts to do a fresh install. I decided to try a linksys gigabit adapter and got the same error message.  Everything installs ok once i don;t have another NIC in.  Any suggestions? Bios maybe?

I had this a few times with Samsung DVD Sata drives, but you may want to retry burning the ISO file at a slower speed and retry installing. I also swapped out the samsung with a IDE drive and installed that way once and then once installed I removed the ide and reinstalled the Samsung.
