Hard Drive Problems


Recommended Posts

I bought an Hard Drive off a mate and installed it and then tried to run and eventually install a Linux distro called Puppy Linux 5.2.8. I also tried to run Austrumi-2.4.0 (live cd) + Lubuntu-11.4 (live cd). But for some reason not even the live cd's will work and all i see on the screen is the following:-

 

EDD: Error 8000 reading sector 347787

EDD: Error 8000 reading sector 347833

 

Tried doing a Google search on the above errors but could not find anything.

 

Would appreciate any help

Did you format the drive? Was it installed as the "master" drive? I'd install it in a running system and check it for errors.

The live cd's you mentioned should run just off the cd... Puppy Linux 5.2.8. I would think should install just fine as long as the drive is good.
