I am using legacy mode
Aside from what we have already checked, I am at a loss. We keep returning to Disk Error, but that may also be a Red Herring. Perhaps others may join in with more helpful posts than I have.
I'm going to see if getting another USB fixes it, I just realized that it is rusty, and I have more than 6 years writing and resetting in it
If it's not that, I'd better go back to Windows because I tried a new HDD I recently bought and it doesn't work either and I haven't used the laptop for weeks
Wow, that is an Old USB. Yes, they can only handle a limited amount of re-writes.
Buy a new USB and on a live USB run these two commands
sudo badblocks -s -v -n -f / dev / sdb
sudo fsck -cfvr / dev / sda
and ready the system started without any problem
so if it was a problem with my disk
sorry for doubting you Aravisian
