did you try both cds ... desktop(live) and alternate ?
if none works try the server install & finish your way up with
As I wrote previsously, I tried installing from the CD's and also in
doing a 8.04 LTS upgrade using the software update manager from a
fresh install of 7.10 that was working, all resulting in the error 16
inconsistent filesystem structure. I googled this error for hardy
and did get a lot of hits. I don't think the results of doing the
server install followed apt-get install of the desktop would yeild
any different results as I do believe it is some sort of a hardware
compatibility issue. I threw a WindowsXP image on the suspect hard
drive and it is working fine as well. Kind of a bummer as I had
ubuntu 7.04 working on this laptop and it worked really well, had it
on there for last year. I don't know at this point if it is a grub
loader issue or if the hard drive is getting scrambled in the
installing 8.04 LTS.
