Exclamation Cannot Install MX-16

Here is the latest installment to my ongoing HDD saga!

I still have XP installed and booting fine, but no longer have MX-16 installed. However, I now have a partition that is approx 270 GB and formatted to Ext4; ideal for reinstalling MX-16 and thus restoring my dual boot system.

(In case you were wondering, I attempted to install MX-17.1 via an external HDD and a USB memory stick, using UNetbootin, but both failed to boot, despite the hardware being formatted to FAT32 and altering the BIOS to boot from USB HDD.)

The problem is that when I attempt to reinstall MX-16, from the DVD I originally installed it from, I only get as far as login and password. After submitting the default details I get the following message:

bash:/msr/share/bash-completion/bash_completion/:input/output error

(Mx16 + Cx1 + Lx2) + (Tx5 + Nx2 + Bx33)
