  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Support Pop!_Planet

    Thank you for your time,

Installation of Pop!_OS 20.04 LTS failed, possibly due to a hardware error.

Hey guys, I've been trying to get PopOS installed on my PC, but it always gives me this error. I've created the bootable USB stick 3 times right now with 3 different downloads of the ISO, I even zeroed the USB stick and the Hard Drive inside my PC to install. I looked at the installer.log file and it shows me that an error occurred while extracting the system files, someone help me please.
My specs: AMD A6-6400K 4.4Ghz overclock / 4Gb DDR3 1866Mhz / GT-1030 2Gb GDDR5 / 1Tb 7k RPM Toshiba P300 Hard Drive
(note: I had successfully installed PopOS on this machine before)

You could try the old LTS version of Pop 18.04. We can then see if it is your hardware failing, or incompatibility with the newer kernel or software.
Thanks for the reply, I'll try that, but the strange thing is that I had successfully installed 20.04 on that machine before, but I'll try the 18.04 now. Could it be an overclocking issue? Cuz my CPU and RAM are overclocked, the CPU is overclocked from 3.9 to 4.4Ghz and my RAM from 1600 to 1866Mhz.

Yes, quite possibly. Did you install Pop last time before you overclocked it?
Last time I installed PopOS my CPU was at 4.2 instead of 4.4, I'll try to lower it down again to 4.2 or even put it at the default 3.9 to see if that gets rid the issue.
