While installing ubuntu 12.04 I encountered this error message:
The installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk:
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 drive lens, to check the hard disk is old and in need of replacement or to move the system to a cooler environment.
Here is the thing that I find weird: The hard drive and CD/DVD drives are new. Why would I get this error message when I reinstall for the second time? The first error message was ubuntu could not accept SWAP partition.
