The installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk:

[Errno 5] Input/output error

This 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.

Please Suggest Me As I Deleted The Previous Version 11.10...So My Installation 12.04 is stuck

I am using the Live USB.

I have tried several ways of installing this latest version - nothing worked, so I downloaded and installed Ubuntu 11.10 and clicked on upgrade software. Ubuntu 12.04 downloaded and installed like a dream - pity you uninstalled the earlier version.

Boot off the usb stick and when it shows the keyboard icon at the bottom hit a key. Then select the option to check the files on the stick (I forget the exact words). If that throws an error then you have a problem with the data on the stick and need to re-burn it.
