I spent the weekend trying, unsuccessfully, to install Fedora 16 on my PC. Installation goes normally until "Copying live image to hard drive." When the progress bar gets about 1/4 of the way across the screen, I get an Unrecoverable Error...
"ext4 filesystem check failure on /dev/mapper/VolGroup-lv_root"
I've tried with the live cd version and the DVD installer... same problem, same place. Tried with the drives formatted and and unformatted. Nada.
I've also tried Unbuntu 11.10 and get the same sort of error when copying files to the HD.
Both installers say the CD or DVD has no errors.
Tried installing on a 500GB drive (Where I really want Fedora to reside), on a 2TB data drive and on the free space on my 2TB system drive. Same errors, same places.
A friend loaned me her Red Hat 5.5 Server media and the installation went off without a hitch, but besides not being legal, I don't want a server setup!
My PC has an MSI 870A-G54 system board with an AMD Phenom x4 CPU, 8GB ram, and 3-Seagate hard drives. The OS is Win7 x64.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
