I'm having real issues reinstalling 10.04 to an SSD - I had one SSD fail, and have replaced it with a brand new one, but the 10.04 installer fails at beginning to write files to the disk with this error:
[Errno 30] Read-only file system: '/target/bin'.
- Windows XP will install to this SSD with no issues
- I can install 10.04 to a standard hard drive with no errors.
What is happening that is stopping me from installing 10.04 to this drive? I am positive that there is no issue with the SSD (I have two brand new, identical SSDs which both encounter this error.) They are OCZ Vertex II 60gb drives.
I have tried partitioning the drive using gparted on another machine, leaving 5mb free at the start of the drive, and having a single partition for /, and a 1gb swap partition. "Round to cylinders" was unchecked. The partitioning was successful, and the drives can be mounted on my other machine, but the 10.04 installer encounters the same error.
Any suggestions for what to try next would be appreciated, or I'll be stuck with reverting to a HDD!
