Default Ebios error after error! - 12-11-2010, 12:38 AM

I've tried every forum's help I have looked for without luck.

Here's a typical boot up:
Cham or syslinux boots the usb (with -v -x -f)
After 20 or so seconds I get a message saying:
"Bios read error: error 0x04
Block xxxxxxx: sectors 64"
(I have gotten the install to work a few times but it always failed after 10 or so minutes.)

I have tried:
2 USB Drives
5 Cham Drives
3 Snow and Leopard Images
Wrote images on Linux, Mac 10.3.9 and Windows
5 days of zeroing out the drive

And yet NONE of those did anything different!

Any Help Is Greatly Appreciated!
