Debian Installation :: Boot Back Into Debian Hanging Up

Jul 11, 2011

I'm not sure if this is the right spot for this pst or not, first on this forum. I just removed Fedora Core 4 from my system and installed Debian Sarge with the 2.6 kernel. I'm a newbie. The install seemed to go fine, after it was done I actually logged in and looked around some. I then restarted to check to make sure that my boot process went ok and I could still get to windows. Worked fine. Then I tried to boot back into Debian. It hung. I rebooted and tried again. Hung again in the same spot.

Debian Installation :: Frequent Hanging After Installation Of Debian Squeeze

Apr 15, 2011

I have and old PC and for last years i had Debian Lenny on that and it was working great but after the Squeeze release, i downloaded the first CD image and did a fresh installation but after this it boots up with no problem (i must say since in Squeeze installation the option of creating a floppy diskette was not working properly i use SuperGrubDisk2 to boot the Debian), but few seconds after logging in, the system hangs (or maybe only the X11 since i use a historic nVidia TNT2 Riva graphic card!).

Debian Installation :: Can't Boot Back To Windows

Nov 20, 2015

I installed Debian 5 hours ago, and I am fighting with it since then. I'll pass on the tons of issues I am encountering (wrong desktop environment (I asked for debian's, I got Gnome), shitload of various errors when doing basic things, resolution of a minitel).

The biggest issue I am having is that Grub is not listing Windows and I can't boot into it. I've tried os-prober and update-grub, the boot info script detects Windows 7 (it's windows 10 but, whatever), I've tried to boot into a windows repair USB stick and fix the mbr and boot through the cmd (which both returned success). I am currently trying to create boot-repair USB stick, but I keep getting errors about file systems not handling symbolic links...

How can I repair Windows boot (which seems to have been messed up by Debian's setup)..

Also, I am quite used to linux and unix systems, as I am dev and use Mac OS at work and used Ubuntu/Fedora for years, and I never had such a bad and messy experience with any of those OS...

Here is the boot-info generated with Boot-Repair-Disk [URL] .....

Debian Installation :: System Hanging On Upgrade To Jessie

Apr 5, 2016

I have an asus eee 1015px, which was running dualboot windows and wheezy with no problems (except the browsers seeming to take up a lot of CPU). Today having backed up everything, I wanted to upgrade to jessie. URL...

Everything seemed to be progressing fine, no strange messages, it took 1 hour for

Code: Select allapt-get upgrade

but maybe that's normal. However, then when I did

Code: Select allapt-get dist-upgrade

It froze at 17.30 with a weird screen. The sort of thing you never want to see on an install, a sad face and blocks instead of text.
pic: URL...

Then it moved on and gave a readout, which seemed pretty ominous
pic: URl...

It then moved and gave a readout, hanging again:
pic3: URl...

Now it seems to be in loop, moving on every 15 minutes or so but always ending up with the same screenful of text shown in the foto below, which ends with the last line reading like this:

Code: Select all[17798.587776] ieee80211 phy0: brcms_ops_bss_info_changed: arp filtering: enabled true, count 1 (implement)
or later
Code: Select all[20209.229273] ieee80211 phy0: brcms_ops_bss_info_changed: arp filtering: enabled true, count 1 (implement)

This pic shows the full screen: URL....

This is baffling for me I'm not very experienced with debian.

Debian :: Boot Hangs When Back Up USB Hard Drive Attached?

Jul 23, 2010

A USB hard drive is used as backup drive.

When it is not plugged in, the system boots without any issues.

When it is plugged in, this hangs to the point I have to unplug the CPU.

Debian :: Cannot Change Back To Basic Blue Grub Boot Splash?

Dec 17, 2010

I get the new boot splash with the nice little rocket and all but I seriously dislike it. While I don't stare at my computer as it boots, I do happen to see it from time to time. Unfortunately, I always see this new little rocket and I wonder where my traditional Debian blue with the swirl went. Yes, I know I am using Grub-Pc now, and I have tried to edit my /etc/grub.d file by renaming the wallpaper line to my preference.

But all my config file sees is "background-grub.png" which is the little rocket ship. So, I give. What is the secret code to unlock my grub config file or do I seriously have to muck around with Plymouth in order to have a choice in the matter? Just for those of you who contemplate counseling me on better time management instead of wasting my precious time over such a silly little thing, I agree. Not to mention that I use Debian because I like to build my system.

Fedora Installation :: F13 Is Hanging On Boot

Jun 11, 2010

I've been having trouble with my desktop ever since I upgraded from F 11 to F 13 last night. Finally, however, I got the proper version of the nVidia drivers installed. However, it's stopped completing boot. I've edited grub at boot to get it to show the boot messages and find that the last thing it reports is success in registering the binary for Windows applications. After that, it just sits there, doing nothing. I can go to an alternate console an d log in, but that's all.

If I log in and run startx, it fails.It reports that it was unable to load the nvidia module and "no screens found." Does anybody know what I should do next?I've removed both kmod-nvidia and akmod and am going strictly with the nouveau drivers.I've booted, used Ctrl-Alt-F2 to get a console, logged in as root and run the setup program to configure X to run that way, then returned to the main console and logged in as myself. Shortly after my wallpaper shows up, and long before I have a working desktop, it goes white and stays that way. Aside from getting a different video card (The old one worked Just Fine right up until I upgraded.) what else can I do?

Debian Installation :: Debian 5.0.4 New Install Will Not Read Boot Disk Info

Mar 10, 2010

I down loaded Debian 5.0.4 and burned it to CD (several times I might add till it was right) and now the computer I'm putting it on wont acknowledge it as a boot disk and load. It does not have a problem with my windows cd, which has a crack and the start of all my problems, But not the Debian CD-1 disk. what now? The computer is an IBM thinkpad a22p. Everything works as far as I can tell. But I was going to reinstall Windows and failed in that because of a small crack on the edge of the disk that stopped the install and any hope of accessing the file on the laptop. Microsoft does not support windows xp any longer, you must buy windows 7, but the ibm will not run it due to processor speed and ram limitations. But it will run linux and I'm willing to try it just to get out of microsoft control.

Idon't know what else to do. This is the link to where I downloaded the software ( [URL] ). The others five that i downloaded were on the same page that I got this one. Are there bad files here? Is there a missing file in the disc?

Fedora Installation :: 12 Hanging On Boot (most Times)?

Nov 26, 2009

I have just installed Fedora12 x86 64. On booting more often than not it hangs just before completing the login screen.I will try some of the options in the wiki. In the mean time has anyone else experienced this and resolved it.The odd thing is although the keyboard is not on, (num lock light goes out as boot starts and only comes back on if it has fully booted), the mouse will move around the screen but the click has no effect.Note the same behaviour was shown on the x86 64 live cd which I needed to install to enable me to create a bootable usb stick from the x86 64 DVD.

Debian Installation :: Testing : Way Back Home?

Jan 22, 2010

Now that I've [url=""]destroyed[/url] the installation on my notebook, and a fresh install of Lenny with upgrade to Squeeze (to try out smxi) didn't work, I wanted to install Squeeze fresh.But not from a CD. That's too tired, and I've never actually installed from a USB stick.So I set out to do this, for it doesn't seem hard at all: ... 04s03.html

I even get to use cool-sounding commands like zcat, so this is way hipper than burning CDs, of which I have far too many lying around. Now here's the thing, it boots up and gets started, but the versions of don't match. I got both of them from the [url=""]Debian-Installer page[/url] from netinst , both amd64, specifically: ... oot.img.gz (30 MB, don't click)
and ... etinst.iso (139 MB, don't click)

How on man's green web,then,do I make sure that I match up the correct versions of the netinstall image and the installer files?hangs head and slooowly reaches for CD spindle...

Debian Installation :: Restore From (Ubuntu) Back In Time

I used Back In Time (BIT) to back up my data to an external USB drive on Ubuntu 12.04. After problems with Ubuntu I made a fresh install of Debian 8.3. In Debian I have installed BIT and can see the USB drive. However, BIT cannot see the old snapshots. I had thought I would be able to restore on the new install.

Ubuntu Installation :: Freezing, Hanging, Blackouts And Being Unable To Boot With 10.4?

Jul 12, 2010

I am having problems with freezing, hanging, blackouts and being unable to boot with 10.4. After having replaced the hard drive 3 times, and after reading much about these problems, have decided to regress to 9.10. How do I do it? I am weary of cleaning my hard disk to download 9.10 in case it freezes in the middle of the process.

Debian Installation :: Remove All Sid Packages And Roll Back To Lenny?

Jun 7, 2010

I added Sid to my /etc/apt/sources.list, so that I could install KDE4 (as described on some random KDE4/Debian web page). However, I now think that was a mistake and it would have been better to attempt to backport KDE4 onto Lenny. Over time, more and more sid packages have crept into the system to resolve dependencies, and now my system seems a bit broken; 'top' won't run, complains about missing libtermcap which is there, my cron jobs seem to be ignored and so on.

So given a system that is a mix of Lenny and Sid, what is the best way to uninstall all the Sid packages and then get back to a clean Lenny install? Is there some way that I can list all Sid packages, maybe to a file, then use that to tell apt what Lenny packages to install after sources.list has been updated to remove Sid?

I kept a log as the system was built, of everything that had to be manually set up after the debian installer has completed when I moved from 32-bit to 64-bit, so I could just do a clean install of Lenny then reconstruct the system from scratch. However, would much prefer to use the package management tools to revert to a clean Lenny.

Debian Configuration :: Dual Boot Ubuntu/Debian: Debian Has Disappeared?

Apr 5, 2011

I have just installed Ubuntu (/dev/sda7) and Debian (/dev/sda4), but since I have updated all informations on Ubuntu, then Debian did not appear anymore on the grub list. There is an wiki I have found, but I an not really sure about what to do.

Here are the boot informations:
Boot Info Script 0.55    dated February 15th, 2010                   

Boot Info Summary:

=> Grub 2 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks at sector 488861020
of the same hard drive for core.img, core.img is at this location on
/dev/sda and looks on partition #3 for (,gpt3)/grub.


ps: on this file, it says that the /boot is installed on the MBR and /dev/sda3. I will remove the boot from MBR as I am now using /dev/sda3 instead. Sorry for my english

Debian Installation :: 2.6.32-5-amd64 Boot Fails - How To Make It Boot

May 27, 2011

My old computer started randomly rebooting so I went out yesterday and bought a new one. It's a standard Intel 64 architecture with 2gb ram etc.The old computer was running Lenny however I'm happy to upgrade, so I just went to the main Debian download site and downloaded:debian-6.0.1a-ia64.netinst.iso (this didn't work, apparently ia64 is for itanium and my machine is definitely not that), so I downloaded: debian-6.0.1a-amd64-netinst.iso, burnt the CD and ran the install. First time through I had a power failure.

Second time through (a complete fresh start - new partition and everything) it went all the way through to completion and reboot.Clicked 'Continue' to reboot and the machine reset as it would normally and the Grub loader started okay, prompted for the "Debian amd64" standard boot image, selected that and the first 6 lines appeared normal, then the messages wizzed by so fast that only superman could read them. Then they stop - here is some of the content...

[3.816673] Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to killl init!
Call trace:


Running it again I get similar stack stuff but it's a different place: [3.541816], [3.427502] And sometimes if I wait for a minute or two it will continue on further but appear to crash again. Hardware details (everything is onboard - no added cards):

Intel G41 + ICH7 chipsets
CPU: LGA 775 for Intel Core 2 Extreme


Is the amd64 the wrong image? Should I try i386? Is it a blip and I should just rerun the entire install again?

Debian Installation :: Installed Dual Boot 6 RC2 / No Boot At All

Apr 17, 2011

Before the installation, I had triple boot of WinXP, Win 7, Ubuntu 10.10. As you can guess, the main boot-loader was grub. The second is Win 7 boot loader, and there it gives the option what to choose, load XP or Win 7.I made a decision to remove Ubuntu and install Debian(you know better than me why I did). So first, I searched a guide how to un-dual-boot. It told me to delete the two partition that Ubuntu use(swap and ext4) and write to MBR the win 7 boot-loader(using EasyBCD), so I delete them and use EeasyBCD. At this stage, I had 2 partitions: NTFS for XP and NTFS for Win 7, and the Win 7 boot-loader(and XP) worked pretty well.I install the latest testing of Debian(6 RC2) from DVD1 using this guide, except I choose to use the graphical installer, ext4(not ext3 as there), install the desktop environment, and choose to install grub(even know it didn't asked me). The swap partition I set is 3 GB because my RAM is 2 GB, even know that ubuntu set it in the past to 2 GB.The installation went pretty well, just when come to grub package, it says that there was an error with installing grub package(it didn't told me what), I had no choice, so I choose to skip over grub/lilo and finish with no boot manager. I was thinking to myself: "So I couldn't install grub, at least I have the Win 7 boot-loader(which contain XP loader), and maybe Win 7 boot-loader will recognize Debian too.". But I end up with no boot at all.It told me than when choose not to install boot-manager that I need to load /vmlinuz and give it the parameter root=/dev/sda4(my deb partition).I think that if I could install grub, I could load all my boots("sudo grub update" right?).How can I fix it?

Debian Installation :: Cannot Boot From CD Or USB

Dec 30, 2014

About two years ago I changed bios settings in my laptop so booting from cd or usb would not happen, this in a paranoid attempt to thwart would be hackers from taking control of my computer, and of course set a bios password to avoid tampering.

Now, what the bios password is and am unable to remove it with out changing the motherboard.

Is there any other way to install debian other than booting from usb or cd/dvd?

Debian Installation :: Can't Boot After Installation Due To Video Card / Partitions?

Dec 22, 2014

After a fresh install of 7.7.0 (amd64), I'm unable to boot into Debian. I get the following error constantly when booting in recovery mode:

(snip) [drm] nouveau (snip) PMC - unhandled INTR 0x44000000

A bit of Googling seems to indicate that this is due to my video card (Geforce GTX 750Ti). Unfortunately, my motherboard doesn't have any monitor ports, so I'm forced to use a video card in order to use a monitor. Something I didn't foresee being an issue, but what can you do. How should I resolve this? Is there an ISO that has the (presumably non-free) drivers included? A way I can add the drivers during boot (I am able to boot into my Windows partition by changing the boot order, don't know if I can do anything useful from here)? Or do I have to do something crazy like buy/borrow an older video card just so I can properly boot into Debian, and then install the drivers?

I've got a secondary problem: GRUB has my Debian install as the only option, even though I had Windows 8.1 installed first. I don't know if this is related to the problem above, or it's a known problem with newer versions of Debian and/or Windows (and I have to update the menu.lst or whatever myself), or if it's due to the way I set up partitions. My current setup is:

- Windows boot partition
- Windows main partition
- Debian / partition
- Debian swap partition
- Debian EFI partition
- Debian /home partition
- Unallocated space (will eventually be a NTFS partition for shared storage)

This is the first time I'm using a motherboard with EFI/UEFI. It's also the first time I have an OS taking up partitions on multiple physical devices. I don't know if either is the cause of GRUB not detecting Windows.

Debian Installation :: Live USB Cannot Boot

Ok so I wanted to try out Debian, so I got the wheezy live image (gnome) via torrent. The problem is after I write the image to the USB, the computer cannot boot from it. It doesn't even display the USB in the boot menu. I've tried many ways of writing the image like dd, powerISO, UUI, imagewrite (not sure if that was the correct name) etc. Strangely enough, it works on a virtual machine via Plop Boot Manager, but not my actual PC.
