BT4 Installation Issues
I am trying to install BT4 onto an old Dell D505. I burned the .iso to a DVD. When trying to copy any of the files over to my boot folder, I get something similar to the following:
cp: Cannont access 'bin/' : Input/output Error
Does this have to do with either the DVD or the disc drive? or am I completely off?
Either way, can someone point me to some reading on how to correct this issue?
please read what a forums purpose is. This subforum is clearly not for asking questions on how to do something.
-> Thread moved to the newbie section.
he must be using bt4 beta muts guide wont help him until he installs pre-final
I was wondering if it was because I have been using Beta. I started the download for pre-final and will try that tonight.
However, just fyi in case anyone is searching this. I found a similar problem in the Ubuntu forums. This issue could be caused by a scratched up CD, dust on the lens or a defected disc drive, or bad sectors on the hard drive.
I did a few things...
Cleaned the DVD (it was recommended to rub some toothpaste over it, I just rubbed it on a monitor cloth)
Cleaned off the lens
Ran a HD utility to clean up the HD.
That seemed to work as I was successfully able to copy the files over. I have run into a new problem:
Kernel out of sync - init could not be found. (Not the exact words as I am away from my computer but thought I would reply to this thread since people were kind enough to reply to me.)
I have not had time to research the newest error but will do so. This thread can be considered solved though.

The Pre-Final release installed with no problems.
I guess the fact I was using beta was having issues with this old computer. To be expected with Beta I guess. Thanks.
