Description

the error message I got when trying to boot was:

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Broadcom PXE ROM.
Disk error
No bootable device-insert boot disk and press any key

error message when trying to upgrade from intermediary USB:

Partitioning device/dev/sdc
g-bd-part-error-quark:
GDBus.Error:org.gtk.GDBus.UnmappedGError.Quark._g_2db_2dpart_2dquark.Code2:
Failed to commit changes to device '/dev/sdc' (Input/output error during
write on /dev/sdc) (2)
Tails installation failed

why is this happening? what can I do? also, since I'd lose all data anyway, should I just keep on using the 2nd, intermediary USB?
btw I'm quite clueless so forgive me
