So I brought a second had laptop on the cheap, because I am very tight for money. Going to be getting a new hard drive in about a month or so but in the mean time I want to install Ubuntu 13.04 on the current drive (its a 500GB drive with 2025 reallocated sectors).
What I would like help with is finding a way to put the file system around the bad sectors, in order to not allow Ubuntu to use them.
I can install Ubuntu fine but when I reboot to use the new installation I get loads of I/O Errors and then get dropped to a busy box prompt.
Thanks in advance
