I just received a copy of Xubuntu and can't get it to boot the live cd on my Core2 duo system. It will boot on a second system that sets by my main the 2nd system being an older single core celeron 2.4 cpu but not the new system. I keep getting this error message "128.2522031 end_request: I/O error, sr0 sector 1207256" . Anyone have an ideal whats up? I have googled and looked on both the Xubuntu and Ubuntu sites and found nothing. I'm hoping some of you more advanced linux folks can point me in the right direction. KOMMANDER

sr0 would identify to me the device for your CD ROM.

Truthfully, i sounds like a bad burn and when the SATA or ATA module is loaded fo the C2D, it finds the error (which probably isn't occurring on the other machine since it's probably using a different module)

I'm not certain if there's a way to force it to use something else as a temporary solution, just to install and deal with the kernel modules after the fact.

Further research confirmed what you said. So I used Clone CD to make an image file and burned that to a new disc and whata ya know it booted. Thanks furball146 for pointing me in the right direction and now I know what that error number means and how to fix it. KOMMANDER

I know it's trying to read greek sometimes, but I picked out the sr0 that was sprinkled in there and ran with that.

FWIW, I doubt that error number actually means something specific that anyone but a developer could use

fixed :lol:

I would be interested in knowing if the error would show up using the "Check CD for defects" option?

No as that was the first thing I did after the problem appeared. The only reason I was concerned and hoping I could fix the issue is because I use a Sat system for internet. The download limit means I would have to use a download manager and it would take about 5 or 6 days to DL another image file as I limit the DL to about 100 megs a day. The first disk was gotten from Ebay and I didn't feel like taking 6 more days to dl it. KOMMANDER
