    BT4 help


    I have searched everywhere to find the answer to my problem so now i have decided to post.

    I am installing BT4 and am new to linux. I have messed around with ubuntu and dsl but am not real familiar with errors and commands.

    I am attempting to install BT4 on a formatted hdd on this PC:

    intel pent4 2.8 ghz/1.6 ghz
    l2cache 512kb
    sys mem 384 mb
    40gb hdd

    So as i said formatted HDD, the error i am getting is:

    Buffer I/O error on Device hda, logical block #####

    this error appears multiple times. I have found a lot of information on how to install w grub which i am unfamiliar with but i do know it is the boot mngr for debian.

    So does anyone know the root to this problem? Or a method i need to use to install BT4 on a formatted drive? Thanks for the time.

    Reformat the drive. And then I hope it works for you.
    Since, normally I am not this strict but I am with some tools. Like BackTrack4.
    If you can't install it you'd problairy wont need it. So, just have fun with Arch Linux or Debian.. I doubt you'd need BT4.
