Background - I had 11.10 running on the netbook no issues for 2 months, then after update yesterday the entire OS was a mess and unusable, so I attempted a clean install. I made a boot USB of 11.10 as recommended since my original was destroyed, but whenever I try to install I get Errno 5. I've re-done my USB it 8 or 10 times now, ultimate boot said the hard drive is fine and I can run 11.10 perfectly from the USB itself. Then when I proceed to install when running I get Errno 5 again. The drive was reformatted last night as my dads last ditch attempt of recovering anything and I only have one USB stick, so running 11.10 on USB isn't really viable, and neither is running a netbook without the net.
Both are equally desirable outcomes to this
- 11.10 working and stable
- 10.10 recognising I have a wireless card
Remade usb, still not working. Cannot use CD as notebook has no CD drive. USB is 32 bit as is the OS I used to make it on, in case that matters. Processor and specifications are as stated in the links. The final link wasn't really any use, I already have 11.10 but it will not install even after formatting my key so much its incredibly clean in there. I also have 2GB of ram in my notebook which was upgraded before my first install of 11.10.
