    Question [Errno 5] Input/output error on Install Back Track 5 R3

    i want to install BACK TRACK 5 R3 in GNOME 32bit.
    i receive error in %41 in install proccess.

    "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."



    This is the problem.
    Please I want a solution for this problem.

    Please read the error massage than check the Wiki on how you can check if the ISO you downloaded is valid. As an alternative use a USB drive to install Backtrack.

    This is covered on the Wiki and the md5sum is also on the download page for each ISO you choose

    If the MD5SUM is the same that means your ISO is valid, so look on how you burn it on CD / DVD or USB.
