An unexpected I/O error has occured during installation of windows 8


  • Hi,

    I have Dell inspiron n4050 laptop. Pre loaded with windows 7 basic (64-bit). I want to install windows 8 but it gives error before setup starts. Error says..



    There was a problem with a device connected to your PC

    An unexpected I/O error has occurred.

    Error code: 0xc00000e9

    This problem can happen when a removable storage device is removed while it's in use or is failing. Properly connecting any removable storage and resatring your PC may fix this problem.


    No device connected to PC at this stage. I'm installing windows 8 pro from DVD drive. I've tweak BIOS but not succeeded.  Can anyone tell me how to solve this error?

    Thanks in advance...
