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


I had the same problem installing on a Toshiba NB-10t.
It got fixed by adding the following paramenters to the kernel  at startup.

ide-core.nodma=0.1 ide-core.nobprobe=0.0 ide-core.nobprobe=0.1
pci=nommconf pci=noacpi

This was on a Ubuntu 14.04 LTS which has a 3.13 Kernel

Best of luck.

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)
