This question already has an answer here:
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 13.04 in VMWare but while on the middle of copying files, a pop-up error would appear:
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.
I have tried several times but the same thing happened. I even download again a copy still the same problem occurs.
I tried previous versions, 12.10 & 12.04. They worked fine.
I have searched and read several posts like this; none of provide solution.
Please help. What should I do?
