This happen when an error is detected by the disk driver. This can be
caused by hardware failure or incompatibility, or a driver bug. You get
a vm_fault if the kernel is trying to page in a block of memory for a
process but it can't.  You probably get this instead of a regular read
error because AFAIR  cp and install uses mmap() on files smaller than 8

Since you changed the HDD it's probably a driver bug.

However I would be curios if you get the always the same fsbn xxxx
numbers. I would be very strange. Stage also is that it's failing on the
same file.

Aside from posting this + boot -v on mobile, I don't know.
