Debian Installation :: Won't Boot Install Disc

Jul 3, 2011

I am trying to install debian on a compaq presario 6000. When I try to boot off of the first dvd it just won't do anyting most of the time; one flat line keeps blinking. The first time that I booted it, there was that line that starts with isolinux, but that was only there the first time. now nothing shows up.That first time, I got several error messages: EDD: error 8000 reading sector 1360652 and the same thing 5 times over with different numbers at the end. Do these mean that the disc is corrupt in some way, or that the dvd reader is broken or something else?

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 - Can't Find Grub Without Disc / Boot From Hard Disc

Jan 1, 2011

I have just installed 11.3 x64. The installation went fine and worked for the first few hours. I ran the online update tool, and now it cannot find grub unless the installation disc is inserted and I select the "boot from hard disc" option.

I have read about the problem of the root partition being back, but not sure that's it.

sda1 - swap
sda2 - /
sda3 - /home

There used to be a repair tool in the installation disks. I could not find that in this media. Is that still available?

Ubuntu Installation :: Vista / Dell XPS Won't Install Or Boot From Karmic Disc

Jan 17, 2010

I've never tried installing any other operating system on my desktop so I'm not sure if it's a 9.10 bug (probably not), but whenever I choose any of the options after the ubuntu cd has been loaded at startup it goes to a black screen with the underscore at the top, and promptly reboots. At this point in time I can just boot back into windows or get to the same selection screen off of the cd.I've tried burning 3 seperate cd's and at the moment and trying to boot them on my laptop (but not working... hrm). I'm thinking about redownloading the iso in a couple minutes.

OpenSUSE Install :: Computer Won't Boot From Hdd Or Boot Disc

Aug 5, 2010

I have been having a problem with my 11.1 recently, in that it gets stuck at a point in the boot process that tells me "INIT cannot execute /bin/sh" then it says "INIT: id 1 is respawning too fast please wait 5 minutes" and tells me there are no more preocesses in this runlevel and repeats this no matter how long I wait. Since I couldnt find any information on fixing that, I decided to just upgrade to 11.3 with a boot disc. Now my computer wont recognize the disc to boot from it and still gets stuck at the same screen.

Ubuntu :: New 10.10 Install Won't Boot From Hard Disc?

Mar 11, 2011

After happily running a persistent install from a USB stick for a week I decided to delete my Windows install and replace with Ubuntu.I did the install from the USB stick, selecting the option to use the whole drive.When the install finished I was prompted to restart. I removed the USB stick and did so. The machine rebooted... and nothing. Just a flashing cursor top left of a black screen.I've booted the USB stick version and looked at the hard drive. Stuff has been installed sure enough, but it will not boot.Machine is Acer Aspire 5920 laptop. Running Ubuntu from USB stick has been smooth as silk with no issues.I'm not technically minded, so I'm afraid that any assistance (for which I would be eternally grateful) may need to be n00b-style dumbed-down.

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot 10.04 From Disc Drive?

Aug 2, 2010

I've tried to boot my Ubuntu 10.04 from my disc drive, and installing it in Windows like an app, but every time I do my screen looks like it went bad. The top two inches are the way it should be but the rest is white, and I can't see anything. Is there some setting on my comp I need to adjust or did I just get a bad disc? The disc doesn't have a scratch on it and I've cleaned twice now.

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Repair / Boot A Recovery Mode From The Install Disc?

Apr 25, 2010

So I have been messing around with the new 10.04 and I managed to screw it up. When I started to log off, I closed the lid to my laptop so it would hibernate, but instead the screen went black and I could only see the cursor. It stayed like that for several minutes so I shut it down manually. When I booted it up again, it froze on the splash/loading screen and I haven't been able to boot it since. I've tried to boot in recovery mode, but I think my campus internet interferes with the downloading of the necessary files from the internet. Is there any way to boot a recovery mode from the install disc? Or am I SOL?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Can't Boot Into Snow Leopard Install Disc

Jan 7, 2011

I did a full install of Ubuntu on my MacBook Pro (7,1) and I am trying to boot into the OS X disc but the screen always pulls up the Apple logo and loading circle and then greys out and tells me to turn the machine off.

I cannot get into disc utility or anything. It almost seems like the computer doesn't know how to handle the disc. I did not use Refit and the only change I made to the boot loader was blessing the ubuntu partition.

Ubuntu Installation :: U10.10 - Fails To Boot From Disc / Sort It?

Nov 13, 2010

I have an ASUS G51J notebook with Windows 7 installed. I was following This Guide. I set aside about 100GB for the Unallocated partition. When I started my laptop, I chose to boot from CD (which has an Ubuntu 10.10 ISO on it). I saw a purple background with two icons at the bottom of the screen, and eventually "Ubuntu" appeared in the center with a few dots underneath it. These dots would change color from left to right like a loading bar.

This is where my issue comes up. My friend was using this same CD on his Dell laptop and his desktop which has a XFX motherboard, Q6600 processor, and Invidia 470 graphics card. After this "loading bar" was done, he would be asked if he wanted to boot or install Ubuntu.

This didn't happen for me. What happened instead was that I saw what looked like my Windows desktop after having gone through a meat grinder. There were various icons randomly in pieces all over the place. The only icon that was in one piece (by chance) was my shortcut to Skype.

Has anyone seen this before? Am I doing something wrong? My friend was saying that maybe I should try with a fresh reinstall of Windows and try again. I wasn't even given the choice to just boot from disc. It got to the point where I expected it to give me the options to do so, but instead the Kansas version of my desktop shows up after being hit by an F5

Debian :: Disc Install Dial Up - Web & DNS Server?

Apr 16, 2011

This is my first time to use Debian. I ordered the discs from LinuxCD - Debian 5.0.7. I am at the install point of Software Selection packages and I don't want to install unnecessary ones. Desktop environment and Standard system are ticked by default. I am installing to a desktop machine. I don't think I need Web server and going to Apache's FAQ still didn't answer my question whether I need it or not. I am not sure about DNS server, either. At this point, the only one I am sure I need is the Printer server. I found one page that loosely describes these software collections, but I am still unsure. Since most people do not use dial up these days it isn't taken into account of the description.

I have squeeze on my main drive and was wanting to install testing on my second drive with LXDE. It fun having stable running great on one drive and then playing around with testing on another. If you mess up so what format start over.

Ubuntu Installation :: Create A Windows 7 Boot Disc From A Pre-installed PC?

May 5, 2011

I have a Lenovo laptop with Windows 7 pre-installed. I would like to dual boot Win 7 and Ubuntu or Linux Mint.

In my old laptop I had an OEM Win XP disc that I bought specifically for dual boot purposes (didn't want the pre-installed vista). This only has a one PC usage though unfortunately.

how to make a windows 7 boot disk? I made a RECOVERY disk already, but I don't think that will work as a boot disk right? Particularly if I completely wipe out or swap out the HDD (which I might do).

fyi: I NEED Win7 for a few special programs for my school. WINE will not work and VirtualBox puts to much strain on my computer.

OpenSUSE Install :: No Bootable Files Found, Insert Boot Disc"?

Jul 21, 2010

I installed openSUSE 11.3 on my iMac along with "Mac Snow Leopard, Windows 7" to make it a "Triple Boot". But after installing the "GRUB/LILO", it does not chain with the boot loader "REFIT" that I use. Each time I try to boot into "Windows/openSUSE", it shows a message: no boot device found, insert boot disc". So why isn't the "GRUB/LILO" working?

Ubuntu Installation :: Re-install Grub2 After New Win7 Install To New Disc?

Apr 18, 2011

I have been running ONLY linux (ubuntu) on my computer for years now. However, a friend sucked me back into the world of MMO's (angry fist @ RIFT). So, I decided to pick up a new disc, slap windows 7 on it and now want to dual boot.Basically I had to do some disc juggling to get windows to play nice. So my windows drive is now first, then my Ubuntu drive second.Its been a while so I'm wondering how involved / what would be the steps to get grub2 to chainload into windows7 (in my head I want to say I'm going to boot into the live cd, mount the windows disc and reinstall the loader to the windows drive since its the first disc in the chain?)

Ubuntu Installation :: Install The Whole Os Again From The Disc?

Feb 20, 2011

I'm a complete novice who installed ubuntu 10.10 this morning, which seemed like it worked great until I noticed that I had to connect to the wireless network manually each time I re-started etc. I did some research into this and found that if you disable the network manager via the terminal section by replacing certain lines with 'deny' instead of accept or something. I did this however the nm was unable to connect anymore! I've been tearing my hair out searching the net, and this forum for a solution but to no avail. Ive since removed network manager while trying one (of many) ways I found online, so need to install it once more. I even tried to install the whole os again from the disc that I did so with initially, but it doesn't work either!Ill be more than happy to connect every time I turn on if it means I can access the net once more!

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot With Windows - Disc Does Not Give The Option To Replace

Oct 4, 2010

A while ago I messed up my Ubuntu installation so I decided to boot the install from the disc again and overwrite it. It turns out the installation disc does not give you the option to replace a current Ubuntu installation so I was forced to take more space out of my windows [vista] installation. This means I now have 1 ruined Lucid Ubuntu OS, 1 Working Lucid Ubuntu OS and a windows Vista OS system. Is it safe to delete my ruined Ubuntu from inside vista? Is it possible to overwrite my Ubuntu installations? How can I delete them both and then install Lucid again?

I want to know this now as Maverick Meerkat will be released on Sunday and I want to install that in a clean installation without deleting my vista installation. I do not have the Vista installation disc because Vista came pre-installed. I am not willing to buy anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot The Disc After Restarting The Computer The Screen Just Turns Black?

Nov 8, 2010

I had Ubuntu installed on my old laptop in dualboot with windows. This year i bought a new Sony Vaio VPCS12M9E preinstalled with windows 7 pro, but i liked the idea of having the opportunity of chosing between windows and ubuntu, so i downloaded ubuntu 10.10 and burned the ISO-image to a disc, and restarted my laptop just as i did when i installed it on my old laptop. The problem is that when i boot the disc after restarting the computer, the screen just turns black. What can i do to install Ubuntu?

Ubuntu Installation :: Disc Boot Failure - Insert System Disk And Press Enter

Jan 7, 2010

I bought a t770.uk HP desktop PC, which came without a Hard drive as the pervious owner had removed it for security reasons. A week later I got a hold of a brand new - out of an anti-static sealed bag - compatible Western Digital Caviar SE 80GB SATA150 7200 HDD, and installed it as directed by my t770.uk manual. Up until now, things looked to be on a roll. As I don't have any windows OS, I figured Ubunutu would be the way to go (and it certainly is from what I've heard and read about it. I can't wait!).

So I sent off for a CD and it popped through my mail a few weeks back. The problem that I am having is after booting past a very brief view of the HP POST screen, the screen goes black with the error "Disc boot failure-insert system disk and press enter". I've tried placing the Ubuntu disc in (assuming it is asking for that? An OS disc) and restarting, and changing the boot order around, but no matter what I do the error persists and I can't install Ubuntu. I really want to get this PC running with Ubuntu.
