This was during the cpdup of a network install to a Sony PCG-R505EL:

(various lines of cpdup output, leading to...)

This has happened twice at the same point, during a cpdup.  The original
owner of this laptop said that it just stopped working one day, and
previously booted with the old operating system complaining about a
corrupt file.  That, combined with the fact that it was during a cpdup,
makes me suspect the drive is broken and hitting the bad part is what
kills the install.

Anyone have a copy of the manual for one of these?  I've had a heck of a
time trying to crack it open far enough to get to the drive.
