I dont think my HD has damaged sector, i run HD renegerator and its perfect, actually i running slax 5 perfectly but i can't install BT3
plz help, i really need it at work!
BT3 beta or final?
I understand that you are booting from CD?
Your downloaded CD image may be corrupted, or may have become corrupted while burning it.
Did you do an MD5 check?
Check the MD5 sum first, if that is OK (if not then you'll have to download it again) then try burning the image at the lowest speed. Burning at max speed can cause data corruption.
THx for the help dude!!
Im booting from the CD cause i can't install to HD, download the final version and i allready check de MD5 its fine.
I also try slax 6 and its the same error i can't partition my HD.
I think its the kerneld cause the bt3 and slax 6 use the same kerneld
slax 5 and bt2 works fine.
Today i delete all the partitions at the HD, and dont show any error at the boot time, but shows the same error when i try to create the partitions.
Any ideas will help a lot!!!!

The master boot record of your HD may be screwing things up. Try deleting it, (if your situation allows that). Worked for me a couple of times when I had trouble installing various distributions.
