Ubuntu Faulty Disk Error

Whenever I try to install Ubuntu separately to any disk/drive on my framework laptop I always get this error.


I am trying to install it separately from my windows 11 installation on my main drive, but I have tried to install it on both a 250gb expansion disk and a separate 32gb drive. It’s always off of a 16gb flash drive flashed with Ubuntu, and I have tried both 20.04 and 21.04 versions. Any ideas for a fix?

Do you have a different USB drive you can try?

I can’t remember if the Ubuntu installer has an installer integrity check routine, but if it does, see if it will pass.

I’ve tried different USB drives for both installing ubuntu from a USB drive to expansion card and expansion card to USB drive.
