Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

Hello,

last week I wanted to reinstall Arch on my Laptop (Lenovo Ideapad G580). First I've downloaded the ISO and burned the Live CD.
After I choose 'Boot Arch Linux (x86_64)' I got this:

Probing EDD (edd=off to disable)... ok
early console in decompress_kernel

Booting the kernel.

I burned the CD two times and tried it, on a friends laptop. It worked. But my PC doesn't want to install it.
Now I have Lubuntu on my Laptop hmm
Pls help

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

Did you check the hash sums of the Arch ISO?

How did you prepare / what medium did you use to install Lubuntu?

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

I am a bit concerned about those I/O errors.   You say the same CD works on your friends machine?
What media are you using?  You might try a CD-R instead of a CD+R or a CD RW.  Avoid DVD media all together.

Is booting from USB an option?  Is booting from PXE (network boot) an option?

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

There is a similar thread about this. (https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php … 3#p1516893
I'm wondering if there is a wider problem to this. As the I/O errors appear on exactly the same sectors I doubt that two people have exactly the same CD or CD-Drive with exactly the same error. This would be rather unlikely.
Or is there another explanation for this?


I put at button on it. Yes. I wish to press it, but I'm not sure what will happen if I do.  (Gune | Titan A.E.)

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

Thank you for the answers. The hash sums are ok. I'd install Lubuntu from USB, but I didn't tried it with Arch, because I had a few Problems when I tried it the first time and so I installed it with the CD. The CD I used a year before (when it worked) and the CD I used this time are identical. The CD from the first install, doesn't work anymore, too >.<
I will try to install debian from another live cd. Only for a try.
After that, I will try to install from USB. Perhaps it will work.

Is this disk you will burn yourself or disc from the front of a magazine? (for example)

There are several possible scenarios going on which would be nice to resolve before it comes back to bite you later wink

1) CD drive faulty or failing
2) CD discs faulty, incompatible or inconsistent
3) 'Current Arch ISO is failing to write correctly on some hardware/software combinations... unlikely as the board is not flooded with the error you are reporting but not impossible...

Would be nice to know as the other post linked above left quite a few questions unresolved sad

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

I'm having the same I/O Erro on exactly the same sector.

ISO md5sum was checked after download.
ISO was burned to a CD using Brasero
The disk is labeled ARCH_201504

Trying to install on a fairly standard HP laptop from the last 3 years.

So, looks like it could be option 3 in the previous post?

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

I also had this I/O error yesterday. But for me it was sector 1227352

My steps were as follows:
1. Downloaded archlinux-2015.04.01-dual.iso
2. Verified MD5
3. Burned CD-R (with a verify after burning) selected x86_64 from the bootmenu and had these I/O errors on dev sr0.
4. Burned DVD-R and it worked fine.

Which rather points the blame at the media/software/hardware/user tongue not the ISO itself.

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

Update:  I encountered this myself this weekend.   I obtained a new laptop with Window 8.  After checking everything for proper operation, I downloaded and burned Arch to a CD-R from Windows 8 on my new machine.  When I tried to install using that disk, I encountered the exact same problem described here.  As a control, I tried a second disk.  Same thing.

Went to my old machine running Linux.  Downloaded and burned using Linux.  Moved the disk to the new machine and it worked perfectly.  Installed Arch on the new machine and then used the new machine to burn a disk using Arch Linux.  The disk worked just fine.

Looks like a Windows bug.  I'll not be filing a bug report with Redmond.

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

Having the same error.

Downloaded the archlinux-2015.04.01-dual.iso via torrent. Checked the MD5 sum. "burned" it on a brand new blank USB with Unetbootin.
Have gone over the process of formatting the USB twice and "buring" the iso on it with unetbootin twice. Same error.

Your problem is different: the OP is referring to a CD/DVD whilst your situation involves a USB stick.

Try transferring the ISO image using the `dd` command (as per the Beginner's Guide) rather than unetbootin

If it still won't work you should open your own thread and link back to this one.

My bad. The `dd` command solved it. Thx and sorry for the trouble.

Not unless the ArchISO is created on a windows box???????? At least one of the posts above mentions burning with Brasero... which has always been pretty random IMHO...

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

You are right.  There were some postings to the mailing list about issues with Brasero as well.   I don't understand what you mean by "Not unless the ArchISO is created on a windows box?"  What I am saying is that when I downloaded the binary and burned it using Windows 8's intrinsic tools I encountered the problem.  When I used wodim on the same computer and drive, I was able to burn a usable disk.  My assumption is that I am not the only one who has tried to burn a disk using Windows -- most desktop and laptop Linux machines are born-again Windows boxes.

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

I see the same CD errors trying to use archlinux-2015.04.01-dual.iso to reinstall Arch in an old P4 (Celeron) machine:

...

....

MD5 and SHA1 sums checked.
ISO burned in two CDs at different speeds via Brasero under LMDE: unable to boot from both disks.

BTW: archlinux-2015.03.01-dual.iso works fine for me...
Booting from 2015.03.01-dual.iso, I'm able to arch-chroot in the previously installed Arch and perform commands as root (including full update).

Seemed to be a bug in archlinux-2015.04.01 ISO creation.

Any suggestion?

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

EDIT:

@ewaller: you're right!

It's a Brasero related bug sad
Using wodim (command line) to burn archlinux-2015.04.01-dual.iso makes a fully bootable CD big_smile

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

Hi, sorry for bumping this relatively old topic but I'm running into the same issues on two separate machines.

ISO: archlinux-2015.10.01-dual
HASH: MD5 verified
Burn application: https://cdburnerxp.se/en/home (using data verification mode)

I've burnt the disc twice to make sure the disc itself wasn't to blame.

The I/O error occurs on the same sector between both discs on both machines!

To me this indicates a burn / media issue, but data verification completed perfectly?

Dumping the exact same image to USB and booting off that throws no issues.

Inserting the CD in a booted live environment instantly throws the same I/O error. Inserting some other burned discs also result in I/O errors, though not all. Non-burned media seems allright.

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

Switched to http://www.imgburn.com/ and suddenly both systems boot perfectly off the newly burned media.

Going to do some more verification, check discs against each other and the like. The burner application seems to have been the cause.

*edit*

Odd, the install media has the exact same MD5 sum. I'm at a loss for words here.

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

Hi all,

I realize this is an old post. Yet, trying to burn the latest iSO - having md5sum-checked the iso after download - having burt with both brasero and wodim, I have the same problem.

Same error messages as below, just a different sector number.

I am side stepping this problem now by trying to install from a knoppix live distro - which boots perfectly by the way - even if burnt with brasero.

Burning on Ubuntu 15.04

Anybody knows what I causing this?


Regards

Frank

Re: Installation problems: I/O erro: dev sr0

I'd just like to confirm that after an identical problem trying to install from a CD, Lone_Wolf and LK's solution of burning the disk using SAO(DAO) mode worked for me.  Many thanks; I don't think I would ever have sussed that one out on my own.
