Fixing Can not mount /dev/loop0 while installing Linux | Ubuntu | Mint | BackTrack


I recently ran into this error in which it could not mount /dev/loop0 due to Input Output Error  and I just now found a fix and I am helping everyone that has that error !




General Error format ...

BusyBox vX.XX.X(Ubuntu X:X.X.X-XXXXXX) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

(initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.squashfs failed: Input/output error
Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs
This error is really frustrating and after googling for a looong time I still had no fix :(

but then I found out that by not mounting the drives when ubuntu booted up , this can be stopped !

First in the menu that appears , select Default and press Tab .

Change this
initrd=/ubninit file=/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper quiet splash --
 to
initrd=/ubninit file=/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper nohd --

Ta Da ! no more errors ... !!!
