Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Stuck At Copying Files?

Jun 13, 2010

I am trying to install KUbuntu and the installer is struck at "copying files." The first time the installation went fine besides grub not booting properly. So I went ahead and tried to reinstall Kubuntu and now the installer hangs at 15-23% at copying files. I've already erased a bunch of partitions and told the installer to install the OS on "the largest contiguous free space" and it still hangs. To be honest I haven't allowed to it hang at 23 percent for more than one hour.The CD is not the issue as I've tried both Kubuntu and Ubuntu installers with the same result.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Encountered Error Copying Files To HD

Jun 2, 2011

I have an Asus eee 1000. Was running Ubuntu 10.04 netbook remix quite happily for some months until recently when I had some problems and decided to reinstall. Unfortunately that is when my real problems began. I have tried using various CD.s with Ubuntu 10.04 desktop and Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook remix.

Both give the same error - 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 tried using an SD card to install - that also gave errors. I tried installing Windows as much as I hate it and, annoyingly, that installed without any problems whatsoever. Then I tried using the Alternate Install disc. That gave me a different error - did everything and apparently installed a "basic" system but failed to install software. Struggled to find an answer to that. How I can get Ubuntu 10.04 back on my netbook. As it stands at the moment I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that I will have to install Windows or buy a new netbook - this seems preposterous!

I have seen that many people have this error and so it seems like some sort of bug. The only clue I had is that I did succeed in installing Ubuntu on my second 32 GB SD (the netbook has two (an 8 GB and a 32 GB). Unfortunately this SD appears much slower than the first so I erased it and went back to trying to get it on the 8 GB as before. Now it won't install on either - gives the same error. I do not believe that both my SD.s can be faulty and so I can only assume that somehow they both need erasing or formatting or something before I can reinstall.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Encountered An Eror Copying Files To The Hard Disk

Jan 17, 2010

"The installer encountered an eror copying files to the hard disk: [Errno 30] Read-only file system

This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. ..."

Before I try changing CD drives, re-formatting the hard drive (again), or cleaning the CD drive, I must add that Xubuntu did open. I got rid of all traces of the previous operating system (WinME), and Xubuntu seems to work pretty well. The installation stopped at 41% of copying files. Should I aim for a finished installation or is this fine?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 - Installer Encountered An Error Copying Files To The Hard Disk

Dec 2, 2010

Each time, different methods, I get this about 3/4 of the way through:

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.

The only possibility of those is the CD being bad. But I've used it before, recently, and it was fine. I will burn another one from my other computer and try, but it shouldn't be doing this.

Question: If I plan to only use Ubuntu on this computer (no dual boot) should I make the /,swap and /home partitions all Primary or some logical, or does it even matter?

Ubuntu :: Installer Encountered Error Copying Files To Hard Disk

Oct 18, 2010

I have about 170 Gigabyte free at the last of my hard. I have windows 7 and suse linux installed on the machine. When I try to install ubunto. I start to create the partitions manually because I want to add it as a third operating system on my PC. Anyway I create the 4 partitions /boot - / - /var - /home. Automatically it choose to install the boot on sda not sda 9 as the /boot was sda9. I click install.

It gives me this message "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 burn another cd and do the same ... the same problem.

I try to create the partitions at the end of the hard disk not the beginning although I am sure that there is no error in the hardware but the same message. Lastly I change the boot to be created in sda 9. The same problem, when I do everything. I download Linux mint another operating system and do the same points. The same error message appeared by the way the boot is being damaged after restarting and I have to fix it from suse linux cd.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Install Hangs At Copying Files?

May 1, 2011

I am attempting to migrate from Mandriva to Ubuntu and attempted to install the 11.04 and 10.04 CD distos on a 7-year old computer (Elite Group L7VMM3 motherboard, 1.4 ghz AMD Duron, 1.2GB RAM, 40GB IDE HDD).

The 11.04 installation CD makes it through the HD partitioning (erase everything), Computer name, time zone, and keyboard detection, but hangs after starting the "Copying files" stage of the install. The progress bar stops just below the in "Copying files...".

The 10.04 installation CD makes it through the "Installing the base system", "Retrieving console-terminus" with the progress bar stalled at 6%. Although the computer is old, Vista successfully installs on it.

Debian Installation :: Windows Get Stuck On Logo Screen Or Safe Mode Loading Files

Nov 19, 2014

Naturally a Windows user, because all of my computers were with pre-installed Windows and I was young.. and I get used to it..In the time of.. growing up I became programmer and learnt how bad is actually Windows coded. Not only that.. Linux has better support for developers.So.. I was Windows user till yesterday. I finally decided to work on Installing Linux or more specifically - Debian.I love everything part of the GNU - GIMP, GTK+, Gedit, GCC...

Well I can't use my PC, both of my operation systems are non-functional.Windows get stuck (which is something completely typical for Microsoft stuff) on Windows logo screen, or safe mode loading files..Debian installation is messy.Firstly I installed Debian 6.0 on a Virtual DVD Disc mounted. I followed the installation process strictly and move forward to Debian startup.It asked me for account. root as "username" and the password as "password" didn't work so I logged in as "localhost" normal user.

However.. I started to realize that I actually also had to install the Graphical Environment in order to have Debian with the desired GNOME Desktop.. I went to aptitude to install the Graphic Environment Package but it said that I have no root rights.. I tried to log-in again, using the correct details but failed.I tried to get in, using the sudo command, but the sudo command also didn't work. Of course.. since I can't install packages, I can't either install sudo."su -" or "su" also prompt me to select a password which I apparently have no clue of.

Then I went to Debian Recovery, because there I was logged as root. It also pointed out that "Root Account is locked". I went to install packages finally.. But when the installation started to proceed It asked me for disk insertion in a specific folder?There I got lost completely.

Ubuntu Installation :: Process Hanging For ~24 Hours With "copying Files" At 63%

Aug 23, 2010

I am installling ubuntu on my old (2003) Dell D800 laptop with celeron processor, using a CD (burned at home). The installation process is hanging for about 24 hours now; it says "copying files..." with progress at 63%. The progress has not changed for about 10 hours.

I have a single hard drive on the machine (... noticed issues with dual drives on this forum, so thought I'd mention).

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Freezes On "copying Files"?

Apr 17, 2011

Just got a new toshiba nb555d notebook and decided to try installing 10.10. It didn't work with my wireless card right away so I tried 11.04 and everything functions well running the "try ubuntu" from the live usb. When I go to install ubuntu beside my windows partition, the installation gets to the "Copying Files" part and then the netbook slows to a stall. I can move the cursor around but it moves very slowly, and I am unable to click anything. I have tried 3 times and it always seems to freeze at the same place, somewhere around 25%.

OpenSUSE :: Dolphin Losing Files When Copying Many Files Or Large Folders?

Feb 14, 2010

I've discovered that Dolphin seems to lose random files when copying many large folders.

I first noticed this a few months ago when I tried to copy my music library from one folder to another on the same HDD. It consisted of around 600 folders and 6500 files. During the copy there were no errors but after the copy I found that some of the newly copied folders were missing files. I put it down to human error or a glitch.

Yesterday I tried to copy 13 folders containing rips of some of my DVDs. Each folder basically had one film of either 700MB or 1.4GB. Again no errors showed up during the copy but I found 3 of the newly copied folders were empty.

It's not so critical with music or films but I can't afford to lose work data like this.

Has anyone experienced or seen a similar problem with Dolphin? I'm going to have to do some more extensive testing but this is not good.

The first time I noticed the problem I was running KDE4.3.4 (I think) and now the latest was with KDE4.4.0.

Installation :: When Installing Puppy - Get Stuck After Searching For Puppy Files

Jun 21, 2009

I am new to Linux and I am trying to install puppy on an old IBM thinkpad 600X (10gb hd, 196mb ram) When installing puppy from a cd, it loads up and does the kernel stuff before "Searching for Puppy files in computer disk drives" - this takes about 10 minutes before saying "pup_421.sfs not found. Dropping out to initial ramdisk console" then it goes to "/bin/sh can't access tty; jon control turned off". then it stays like that and doesn't continue.

Ubuntu :: Copying Files From Other Computers?

Jul 27, 2011

I had to leave rather suddenly (decision was Germany's, not fiancee's), and now am in the States again, but my files are still there. There are lots of things (mainly photos) on there, that I would like to have here. SOME stuff is on CD/DVD, but there is stuff that isn't.

Is there some way that I could access her computer and just copy files to mine?
(I picture two folders, one on hers, one on mine, and I just dragging an icon from one to the other - but I don't suppose anything's THAT easy...)

Naturally, her computer would have to be on, and I assume she could not be using it herself. Naturally also, I would get her permission first...

I assume that it would take a while, but if it were as simple as the icon thing I described above, then I could just go away and come back later. I assume something would be running to make sure that the destination file and source file were identical before proceeding to the next file.

[Before you suggest: why doesn't she just copy the files to DVD's and mail them to me? She is not all that computer saavy, I'm afraid, and trying to explain it all, including the exact folder names and such, Plus, how to use a DVD/CD burner and software... Plus translate it all into German... If I were rich enough, I could just go there and do what I needed, but that is not in the cards for the present. ]

IS there a way to copy stuff from her computer to mine?

Ubuntu :: Copying Files Between Windows Partitions

Jan 20, 2010

I need to copy ~300GB of drives from one Windows hard drive to another using a Ubuntu live CD. (I currently don't have enough power connectors for my Windows system drive AND both existing and new data drives. Stupid power supply.)

By Windows drive, I mean the drives are only data drive (no Windows install) but the files on the first drive were created and are used by my Windows system, both were formatted NTFS in Windows, and the files will again be used by Windows on the second drive.

Are there any pitfalls I need to be aware of, or can I literally just drag the files across in Nautilus? Is there a faster copy utility available (I know there are Windows programs that can copy faster than drag-n-drop, but I'm sure Ubu doesn't have the same problem ) Will using a Live CD cause any specific issues?

Ubuntu :: Bash Copying Files From One Drive To Another?

Nov 15, 2010

I've got two external hard drives, a 2TB and a 320GB. I've recently come from Windows 7. On Windows 7 I wrote a batch file which checked whether both hard drives existed and then copied a couple of folders from the 2TB to the 320GB without overwriting. I've been trying to work out how to do the same under Linux without much luck. I've tried rsync but it looks like it overwrites. Does rsync overwrite?

If it helps, the batch file I wrote in Windows

if exist D:320GBDrive (if exist H:2TBDrive (xcopy H:2TBDrive* D:320GBDrive /I/E /-Y < C:decline_copy.txt))

Which basically checks for drive D:, checks for drive H: and then copies the contents of the folder on drive H to drive D and says no every time it asks to overwrite.

Ubuntu :: Copying Hangs When Transferring Files?

Dec 10, 2010

when I try to transfer files between flash drives, it starts to copy normally and then after few seconds it starts to lag. Transfer rate drops with each second by 0.2 MB down until 5 MB/s where it completely hangs. This happens to every single flash drive I put in and this is annoying because I have external HardDrive connected over USB port and I keep all my data in there, so when I try to transfer the files from the hard drive to the flash drive - it lags and hangs. Same thing if I want to copy from internal harddrive to flash drive. Although everything is fine when I copy from the flash drive to the internal harddrive and everything is fine when flash drive or the external harddrive is alone (no other flash drives or something is connected).

I am also using Ubuntu 10.04. I have tried transfering files on my netbook running ubuntu, because I thought that it might be a USB port issue but the same thing happened on the netbook too...
