[Bug 172937] Re: SQUASHFS error while booting from live cd


I have also encountered this issue with a USB stick.

The temporary solution was to reboot. Sometimes it would work other
times it would not.

Put the ISO on another USB stick, and the problem no longer occurred.

Bug description:
  Some users have reported being unable to boot from the Ubuntu LiveCD,
  due to SquasFS errors like this:

  [  135.292409] SQUASHFS error: sb_bread failed reading block 0x9d7f3
  [  135.292411] SQUASHFS error: Unable to read fragment cache block [275faa28]
  [  135.292413] SQUASHFS error: Unable to read page, block 275faa28, size 23a7

  These errors can be due to a variety of reasons:

      * bad media (solution: try burning the iso image to a new disc)
      * a bad dvd drive (solution: if possible, try using a different cd/dvd drive)
      * bad memory modules (solution: use memtest86+ to check your memory)
      * a corrupted iso image (solution: run an md5 checksum, and if they don't match, download the iso image again)
      * an optical drive connected via SATA instead of PATA and running in Enhanced mode (solution: change the IDE configuration to "compatible" in the BIOS)
