    [Errno 5] Input/output error during Back Track 5 R3 install
    I created a live cd and got this error, I burned another cd at lower speed and still got the same error, did a live Usb after formating that usb and wiping out free space, i then used Unetbootin to create the live usb and still got this error, i also tried: - shuting down the pc to cool down and retried later - cleaning drive lens - checking md5sum and it was correct - downloading the image direct&torrent,from different sources and all checking their md5sum (they all matched) - dskchk - memtest - different rams (tried 4) - typing "ubiquity --no-migration-assistant" into terminal I also tried keeping the mouse pointer moving during install... Does anyone have a solution to this problem? The entire error: [Errno 5] Input/output error This particular error 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 entire error:

    [Errno 5] Input/output error

    This particular error 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.
