  • Peppermint version(s): Eight
Also posted as bug report. Mark asked me to post again here so that it can be determined if it's a bug, and if so,  can be fixed.

 I have a very ancient IBM (not Lenovo) Thinkpad x30 onto which I tried
  to install Peppermint eight. I was using a bootable USB stick made
  with Rufus, that has worked fine as a live boot on other systems.
  Also, the laptop in question had recently had a successful install of Lubuntu
  so I don't think it was a hard drive failure on the laptop, either.
  Anyway, twice in a row while attempting to install Peppermint eight
  the install crashed while it was copying files to my hard drive,
  stating it was an input/output error. The crash occurred a little more
  than halfway through copying the files. I hope this info is helpful.
  Both times there was a prompt generated by the install requesting me
  to file a bug report. I greatly appreciate all those who work on
  developing Linux so if there's anything else I can do to help you test
  or report, please let me know. Kind regards, Sara Ann

Hi veryfoxy, a big welcome to the Peppermint Forum.  It's nice to meet you  ;)!   We'll need a little more information about your machine.  Boot up the LiveUSB of Peppermint 8.  Open a terminal window with the following keystrokes:


Enter, (Copy & Paste)  the following command into the terminal window and hit Enter/Return:
Code: [Select]
inxi -FzPost the output back to the forum.  After we've receive this info, we'll be able to investigate what's going on a little better  ;).

Note: Please remember to encapsulate terminal outputs with the Insert, Code # function.  For extra long outputs, please use the Spoiler, Sp function.  If you’re a Chromium Browser and/or a Google Chrome user, please don't combine these functions.  For some reason they don’t work well together with these browsers.  Only use one or the other  ;).  These forum functions preserve the original format of the output.  This makes it easier for future visitors to relate to their own issues.  These functions are found in the forum editor, above the,  :-[ Embarrassed and  the :'( Cry emoticon respectively.  Use the Preview button to check how it'll look in the forum, many thanks  :).
Backup! Backup! Backup! If you're missing any of these -  you ain't Backed Up!

Hi Sara Ann, do you know which version of Lubuntu you tried ?

Was is 16.04, or 16.04.2 ?
