    Did you already attempt to fsck the entire disk?

    What you didn't tell us is how the issues with the disk arose? On some update? On some attempt to upgrade?

    It seems to be MBR boot on a DOS partitioned disk The gdisk and fdisk agree on partitioning and size.

    If you boot the install in EFI mode (assuming an UEFI BIOS) things may look different since it may be wanting to change the partitioning to GPT from DOS to accommodate the EFI boot

    I don't know how to issue that commands when booted from the install medium. From the install menu, I can escape to a shell, but fdisk nor gdisk are available.

    I suspect the cause was that the CPU-fan was not reconnected when the system was cleaned by a computer firm. Or maybe the fact that the mains socket was not earthed.
    She did not do anything special, was downloading MuseScore from its website when the system stopped and wouldn't reboot. She hasn't got the root password, so she can't do updates.

    ext2fs_open2(): Ongeldig magisch getal in superblok
    fsck.ext2: Superblok is ongeldig -- reservekopieblokken worden bekeken...
    fsck.ext2: Ongeldig magisch getal in superblok tijdens openen van /dev/sdg
    
    Het superblok is onleesbaar of omschrijft geen geldig ext2/3/4-bestandssysteem.
    Als het apparaat juist is en werkelijk een ext2-, ext3- of ext4-bestandssysteem
    bevat (en niet swap of UFS of iets anders), dan is het superblok beschadigd.
    U kunt dan proberen een ander superblok te gebruiken, bijvoorbeeld:
        e2fsck -b 8193 <apparaat>
    of:
        e2fsck -b 32768 <apparaat>

    Code:
    e2fsck -b 8193 /dev/sdg
    or

    Code:
    e2fsck -b 32768 /dev/sdg
    give the same result.

    You don't run fsck or related commands against the drive only against partitions. A drive has no file system all file systems are in partitions.

    Any partition you run against must not be mounted. No repair happens on mounted drives

    I got the gist

    I misunderstood the question of Knurpht:

    Did you already attempt to fsck the entire disk?
    But as you saw, I also fsck'ed the filesystems. They were not mounted at the time.

    Would write the partition data to disk with gdisk be a good idea?

    Run smarctl against that disk to see how broken it is.

    Also this drive shows as sdG so are you sure you look at the right drive in the installer?????
