I'm trying to install the OS (ubuntu-gnome-16.04.2 64 bit) in a new SSD Intel SSDPEKKW128G7X1, placed in M.2-1 slot.
Sistem is composed by a MoBo Asus Prime B250M-Plus and a CPU i3-6100 with 4 gb ram.
I've set from BIOS Compatibility Support Module:
Boot from storage devices: UEFI driver first
Boot from PCI-E expansion devices: UEFI driver first
Boot device control: UEFI and Legacy OPROM
Starting from an USB key, the installation routine starts regularly, the SSD is formatted with the EFI partition, the ext4 partition for root etc...
When system tells: Files copy nearly completed
I get: Err no.5 - I/O error
and the process stops.
I've tried with different USB keys and different Linux distro, but the result is ever the same. So, I think the problem is in SSD or in his configuration.
Can you help me to understand something more?
Thank you in advance.
We would like to let you know that this model has not yet been validated for Linux* distributions.
The 600p Series is an NVMe* drive that was designed to work with the inbox drivers provided in modern Windows* versions. We do not provide a standalone driver, nor a Linux* driver. It's possible that the issues you're experiencing may be caused by a driver issue.
Please review the following /thread/109962 community thread related to this situation you are facing.
I have made 9 pcs with asus b250m-csm and 256gb intel 600p with windows 10. They are running the latest 609 mb firmware and the latest intel toolbox firmware. Cpus are a mix if I7s, i5s and i3s all gen7. Every single pc crashed to a bsod. I put the same 600p m.2 into a h170m and it works prefect. I put a regular ssd into the b250m and it works fine. I put the m.2 into both m.2 slots and it still crashed.
Thanks for your response on this case.
