Im using a single core 2.8Ghz pc with 1Gb ram and 400Gb harddrive.
On installing either 12.10 or 12.04 I get an Error Code 5 input / output error halfway through the install.
I have tried 5 CD's of different speeds 3 hard drives (although I want to use the 400Gb one) 2 different CD rom drives and 2 different IDE cables.
After reading through the forum I have booted Ubuntu into "try it" mode and accessed the disk utility which confirms the harddrive is healthy. I have unmounted the drive, formatted and remounted, I have also repartitioned the drive.
Im not doing anything fancy, its a vanilla install and Im selecting default options.
Still getting the same error, its driving me mad.
