I have asked the person for answers to the following questions,did i miss
any useful question? I will report the answers when i get them

what are your computer specifications?

what kernel version are you running?

are you on a 64 bit or 32 bit system?

did you try the test on your hard drive with the OS or on a USB stick?

did you run the test on an LVM volume or RAID device?

A few more tests would be useful too,what do these commands give you?

dd if=/dev/zero of=test1.img bs=10M count=1

dd if=/dev/urandom of=test2.img bs=10M count=1
