I tried to do it just like I would any other drive, but I got this error:
The installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk:
[Errno 5] Input/output error
This particular error is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. It may help to clean the CD/DVD, to burn the CD/DVD at a lower speed, to clean the CD/DVD drive lens (cleaning kits are often available from electronics suppliers), to check whether the hard disk is old and in need of replacement, or to move the system to a cooler environment.
But this is odd as it is a brand new drive! It SHOULDN'T have any errors... as for the ambient room temp- 78F. And the drive itself is cool to the touch. What gives?
