Live USB dpkg-divert: I/O error

Post by Darkwing87 » Sun Sep 08, 2019 5:50 pm

This is a new build. 19.03 64-bit begins to load, then it hangs and I get the following error messages:

Code: Select all

11.279547 AMD-Vi:Event logged
mount: mounting /dev/sda on /cdrom failed: Invalid argument

Yes, the errors repeat and I have tried booting multiple times with the above being as far as I get. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Please post an inxi -Fxz report. This will give us a concise overview of your hardware and on how Mint sees it.

Here is how to generate the report and post it:

Boot from your installation media (USB/DVD)
Open a terminal window (Ctrl-Alt-t). Make it fullscreen to avoid unneeded linebreaks or chopped lines. Execute the command

Code: Select all

 inxi -Fxzd 
exactly as it has been typed here.

Mark the complete text output which the command will display with your mouse.
Press the keyboard shortcut <Shift><Ctrl>C to copy the marked text into the clipboard.
Enclose the results between the code markers by selecting </> from the mini toolbar above the textbox where you type your reply then paste <Ctrl>V them in your reply between the code markers.

The results will help us to help you.

So I boot up and now I get a kernel panic. I remade the USB using dd on the command line, as I have done many times before, and I still got a kernel panic. Pic of screen output below.
