Did you check this?


An Etch installation with vanilla 2.6.19.2 kernel started to produce
disk errors and later damaged my VM's xfs filesystem beyond xfs_repair.

I was unable to recreate a VM, the etch installer failed to partition
the hard drive. After a few trials I got it to partition the drive and
install. It worked for a few weeks with lots of xfs errors in the logs.

I tried this with real hard drives and disk images.


I'm currently installing etch in a image file smaller 4GB, no errors.

- not only windows
- breaks existing VMs! Data loss!
