    Default Disk Utility Input/Output Error!! Help!!

    Hey guys, Ive tried almost every distro and only iPC and iDeneb recognize my internal hard drive!

    So when I try to format my drive or even partition it, it gives me an error "Input/Output Error"
    I also created partitions from Windows 7 (Created NTFS, FAT32)
    I also tried using Partition Magic (GParted) to make HFS+.
    Everything is being detected but cant be erased/formatted nor partitioned from disk utility!!
    I really don't know how to get through this, Ive been looking for a solution for a long time now Please look into this!

    The drive is totally formatted and it has nothing on it! Right now i have windows 7 installed but i am willing to format it again as long as i can be able to format through Disk Utility at the time of installation!

    Please guys, help me on this!

    Hi there,
    Your problem looks very strange. I just run into another weird problem with just 2 disk master/slave that without the slave hookup, the master disk MBR disappear from every Linux except Windows.
    On your problem, I don't have any idea but just some speculation that I like to suggest and need more hardware information to go further. I ran into that nForce chipsets the other day trying to help another poster having the infamous "waiting for root device".
    I've read that nForce below the MCP73 series is not fully AHCI compliant and will have some problem with SATA disk controller for OSX.
    So in your BIOS is there a setting for AHCI under SATA? (I would assume so because you obviously got it to the installation screen). I would check to see what series your chipset is (you can use CPU-Z), if there is any update version for your BIOS, and your hard drive is SATA or IDE.
    Anyway, it is just my speculation but I would love to know how you solve this problem.
