This is my first time trying to install a Linux operating system after reading many interesting exciting articles about it, but I really need some help! I am trying to install ubuntu-14.04.3 onto my Toshiba satellite cl45-c4330 laptop.
I used Universal USB installer to put ubuntu-14.04.3 onto my external hard drive (I don't have a flash drive) and after changing the boot order to start from USB, I was able to start the Ubuntu installation.
However, on the third page of the installation I received this error:
fsyncing/closing/dev/mmcblk0rpmb: input/output error. Retry, Ignore, Cancel
I wasn't sure what to do at that point, so I just clicked ignore, and the rest of the installation process seemed to work just fine until the very end where it prompts a reboot. after rebooting, I only get a black screen with the message
Reboot and select proper boot device or insert Boot media in selected Boot device and press a key
I made sure that I was booting from the laptop's SSD hard drive and not USB external drive, but I still get the same message. But if I try booting from the external USB drive, it just asks me if I want to install Ubuntu.
So I tried reinstalling from USB again and during the second installation attempt I got the same error on page 3:
fsyncing/closing/dev/mmcblk0rpmb: input/output error
however, on the 4th page of the installation it says
This computer currently has ubuntu-14.04.3 LTS on it. What would you like to do?
What? So if Ubuntu is already installed on the laptop's hard drive, why wasn't it able to boot from the hard drive? I chose "erase disk and install Ubuntu" went through the installation, rebooted the laptop, and again "Reboot and select proper boot device" I'm confused... I thought maybe it was a bad download, so I tried downloading the Ubuntu ISO a second time, but no luck...
Boot repair didn't solve the problem, but here is the link to the boot info log paste.ubuntu.com/13266107
Can anyone tell me what other information I could provide to help diagnose the problem? Thank you in advance!
