Hi and welcome to the forum.
What spec machine are you using? (Processor, RAM, SSD, HD etc)?

When you downloaded the .iso, did you verify the SHA256 checksum against that published on the Zorin website. Methods of downloading Zorin OS - #8 by zabadabadoo

Also which application did you use to create your bootable pendrive. Users here tend to discourage use of Balena Etcher, but suggest others e.g. Unetbootin, Rufus.


This shows an input / output error due to lack of access.
The likeliest culprit is that Windows Fast Boot is enabled which locks the drive preventing read / write access.
Ensure Fast boot or Fast startup in Windows is Disabled.
Ensure Windows is not in Hibernate. Then try Booting Zorin OS.

I've never seen this error - and I have been using Linux for over 10 years. Apparently, it is a very old Unix error code.


Thanks man the issue is solved now. My windows was in hibernate mode.
Thanks for saving my day
