Hmmm... well, there are several reasons you could see something like this. It sounds to me more like a problem with the hard drive controller on your system, rather than the disk itself. You don't say anything about the make and model of hardware you're trying to install on, which would be useful. A couple of things to look at. Check the BIOS settings on the system carefully: generally you should turn off PNP and there are various other settings to fiddle with. If your system uses S-ATA then you're going to have difficulties using 4.10-RELEASE -- you should try 5.3-RELEASE (once it comes out in October) or one of the 5.3-BETAS if you're impatient.
