Fedora Installation :: Cannot Install 12 - Laptop - Getting "waiting For Hardware To Initialize Then Restarts"

Apr 30, 2010

I recently purchased an Acer Aspire AS5517-5671 laptop [URL] Every time I try to install Fedora 12 it gets to the waiting for hardware to initialize then restarts. (using the F12 DVD) Ive tried both the default installation method and the basic video drive options

Ive successfully install OpenSuSe 11.2 on the laptop with little trouble however. So any idea if there is a work around, or is my laptop not compatible with F12?

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Install 15 - Halts At "waiting For Hardware To Initialize"

Jul 21, 2011

I m trying to install fedora 15 on a computer I've just built (which is already running windows 7).

asrock h61m/u3s3 lga 1155 intel motherboard
intel i5-2500 processor
radeon HD 6850 graphics card

After selecting "install a new system or upgrade an existing system" the installation process completely halts at "waiting for hardware to initialize." I looked this up and tried various boot options which frankly, I don't know what exactly they do. Setting "nomodeset" changed nothing as did various others like "noefi". When "ignore_loglevel" was set, the progress went a little further past "waiting for hardware to initialize" stopping after this:

[15.106386] atl1c 0000:05:00.0: PCI INT A -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IQR 18
[15.106639] atl1c 0000:05:00.0: setting latency timer to 64
[15.139841] [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810

From what I've gathered from looking this issue up for the past few days, it is probably a graphics card issue. However, I did remove my graphics card and tried using the input directly to the motherboard and had similar issues. I'm not sure what other information is relevant but I can try to relay as much as I can if it is needed.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Restarts Itself In It And GRUB

Jul 11, 2011

My laptop restarts itself frequently - full restart back through the bios screen to the bootloader, not just logging-out. It happens in Ubuntu 11.04 (32 bit and 64 bit), the Gnome 3 live CD from [URL] (the Fedora based one, run from a USB stick) and even from the GRUB bootloader menu. I have tried two different harddrives and two sets of RAM (all combinations) and the restarts still occur. They even happen when the hard drive is removed and Ubuntu 11.04 is booted from USB. Windows XP Media Center is also installed on the laptop too but the restarts have never happened when in Windows (even though they can happen in the bootloader!).

The memtest86 GRUB menu entry loads the blue screen with the title and memory info etc. but it seems to stop there and I don't think it's actually doing any tests, so I haven't been able to do a memory test. In Windows I have not installed any wireless network or 4-in-1 card reader drivers (among others probably), which is a possible reason why it does not restart in Windows, although I don't think GRUB has drivers for either of these devices either. My laptop is an Acer Aspire 5630 with the following hardware:

CPU: Intel Core 2 5500 (1.66Ghz)
Memory: 2GiB DDR2
Graphics: Intel 945 (integrated)
Audio: Intel HD audio with Realtek codec
Wireless: Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG [Golan]

It does seem that sometimes the restarts are caused by touching the keyboard (i.e. they happen exactly when I hit a key) but they also sometimes occur when I am not even touching the computer at all.

Ubuntu :: Laptop Starts, Shows BIOS Screen, Then Restarts In A Never Ending Loop?

Jun 8, 2010

I come bearing a question that I hope I can get some info on. Here's the situation: I installed Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix on my Acer Aspire One (didn't want it, but got it for free). I installed and am dual booting it with windows 7 basic. Both worked fine until this morning when the laptop ran out of battery and shut down.Now, on start up, the BIOS screen flashes, and its not the same BIOS screen, but I can't tell what it says, its moving too fast, the laptop then restarts. This problem may be bigger than the linux part of it

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade From 9 To 10 - DVD Waiting For GRUB To Load

Feb 10, 2009

I've just tried to upgrade my Fedora 9 (x86_64) installation to Fedora 10 using the installation DVD. The upgrade seemed to proceed very smoothly, no errors ,nor warnings, it just seemed that it is upgrading grub (yes, I chose to upgrade grub as well) and all the packages (it took about 20 minutes). However, after the upgrade was over, it asked me to reboot my computer, so that's what I did, I took out the DVD and waited for GRUB to load.

It loaded just fine, but I was quite surprised when there was no option to boot Fedora 10 in the list. Ok, so I booted into Fedora 9 which went fine, the layout changed to the new one and some programs don't run. When I looked into /lib/modules I couldn't see any fc10 kernel installed. So the question is what happened and what should I do, so that it upgrades to fc10?

Fedora Installation :: Install F15 In A 32 Bit Laptop?

Aug 12, 2011

I am willing to install fedora 15 in a 32 bit laptop. My laptop has Getforce 9300M nvidia graphics card. I would like to know if there is any automatic way to install the graphics driver with fedora 15. If yes please provide me the information.

Why i am interested to know is that previously when i was using a earlier version of fedora11 i guess, people in the forum suggested me to download the driver from the nvidia site and install it. It was really painful to install the driver in that way.

Fedora Installation :: Laptop Won't Boot After Install Failure

Apr 7, 2010

My laptop died while installing F12, without completing installation. Now I can not boot the computer from HD, CD, or USB. I have flashed the BIOS with the most recent ROM. I can access the BIOS setup and exhausted all my options there, which is mainly boot order. At the moment, the boot process goes to a blinking cursor and does not allow for input. The laptop in question is a lenovo Y510 that was previously running F10 with a single partition.

Fedora Installation :: Can't Install F15 On Brand New Dell XPS Laptop / Way To Do This?

Sep 8, 2011

I just got my brand new shiny Dell XPS L502X laptop today and planned to do a dual-boot installation between Win 7 and F15. Win 7 went great but I can't even get the 64-bit Live DVD of F15 to load. The splash screen always hangs while the bar loads, but if I push ESC so I can see what's going on in the background, I get a whole lot of different error messages and the last message is "fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed." What I get is nearly identical to what I found in this post. I've already tried the usual kernel options that have always worked for me in the past, such as noapic, noacpi, and nomodeset. However, the Live DVD still won't boot. There's got to be a way to install this. Any ideas?

Fedora Installation :: Laptop Doesnt Load After The First Reboot After Install?

May 10, 2010

I have laptop ASUS X51RL with Intel pentium dual core inside processor. As mentioned here:I tried to install i386 FC12 on it. When the instalation was completed, there was a message to reboot. So did I, and while the BIOS was still loading, of course, removed the DVD in order not to repeat the instalation. Fedora started loading with the three varioants of the blue color bars and suddenly on the screenappeared a long message finishing with the words: "kernel panic - not syncing: fatal exception in interrupt " and that was all - the system stopped untillo there and never loaded For the last 2 days this is about my 12th attempt to get linux. Before I had tried about over 6 times with ubuntu, finishing the same way after the first reboot, 1 time knoppix and 2 times Debian. Only debian succeeded to load succesfully after its instaltion was complete, but I didnt linke it and a friend of mine strongly recommended me FC12. So what am I supposed to do??? I guarentee, my hard disc is not corruted as I read 1 hundred times on google, I had benn running windows 7 before I started trying to get linux and everything was OK... the install DVD is also OK, I tested it in the same beginning of the instalation and the test was successfull.

Fedora Installation :: 15 UEFI X86_64 Install To Sager NP8170 Laptop

Jun 11, 2011

Target hardware is a Sager NP8170 laptop which uses an Intel core i7 CPU and the HM67 chipset. This laptop uses UEFI instead of BIOS. The laptop is configured to boot from the USB ports before booting from the optical drive and then the hard drive. The software I am trying to install is Fedora 15 x86_64. I want to perform the install using a USB drive. I do not want to use DVD media.

how to create minimal boot media as detailed here: [URL] Using dd, efidisk.img has been transferred to a 256MB USB disk. efidisk.img is about 103MB so it fits. I figured this USB drive would boot and take me to a command prompt of some sort but nothing happens. I see activity on the USB drive (flashing light) but then it stops and the laptop boots from the hard drive which currently has Windows on it.

There is $&*# for information on installing to a UEFI system. I don't even know if this efidisk.img USB drive is supposed to present me with a command prompt and from there I can kick off the Fedora installer from another, larger USB drive or the network or whatever. I really don't want to go back to optical media. Also, I burned the F15 x86_64 ISO to a DVD and that DVD does boot. I did not think the stock Fedora DVD version would boot on a UEFI system.

OpenSUSE Install :: Install 11.3 But The PC Restarts Itself Before Loading The Installer Dvd

Aug 29, 2010

I am trying to install opensuse 11.3 but the PC restarts itself before loading the installer dvd. When I run the installer dvd from 11.2 i can see all the files there, i click on auto run and it gives me an error msg saying cannot find autorun program also have a live gnome desktop cd and same problem, cant boot install media. This were both created on opensuse 11.2 using k3b for the first one and brasero for the second one. I have put both on an xp laptop and the installers start with no problem, both media check are fine, no error. On top of that I have some ubuntu dvd and some xp dvd, I have tried both on my pc and they boot fine, so its not a boot problem,

this ones were created on this same pc before I had opensuse, seems only cd or dvd created in opensuse fail, but it only fails when booting on my opensuse pc and work fine when I put them into xp laptop. I have been trying all day and I cant find any info on this problem. The only thing I can think of, that I have not tried is to try to burn a dvd using xp and try that one.

Ubuntu Installation :: Restarts On Boot After Upgrade?

Nov 1, 2010

I had perfectly working lucid on my laptop (64 bit) which I installed from a live CD not wubi. I tried to upgrade with update-manager and everythingooked fine until I accidentally updated compiz from the cache before everything else finished. this made compiz stop working completely, which also broke metacity. I tried to fix this with multiple things: Downgrading compiz (failed to apply changes), sudo apt-get install -f, finishing the upgrade (see the following).

during the applying changes stage of the upgrade i got an error with almost every package it tried to apply (sorry I don't know what, but it said something about 'this package failed to upgrade and may be left in a broken state'. I let the upgrade finished and at the end it said 'Upgrade Finished but not all changes were successfully applied' and I shut down the computer. when I turned it back on everything looked fine until I past to the usplash screen. Then the screen went black, a bunch of error messages scrolled by too fast to read, and my system rebooted.

I tried recovery mode and another kernel choice at grub but all did basically the same thing. Windows still works as much as it usually does but I want my ubuntu back! I am OK with doing a fresh install if I can somehow recover a small amount of my data in my home folder. If you can tell me how to get into ubuntu from windows or something that would be great but I also need to know how to decrypt my home folder (I used the encrypting option in the installer)

Ubuntu Installation :: Server Install On Laptop Doesn't Install Pcmcia Support?

Jan 12, 2011

I am installing Ubuntu Server 10.10 on and old Dell Laptop. The network connection is an Xircom PCMCIA card.During install, the computer sees and interacts via the network just fine. For example, I can ping the gateway. Also, the command "lspcmcia" works and show the Xircom card.When I reboot, however, there is no network access, and the "lspcmcia" command is not there. When I try "lspcmcia" the OS helpfully tells me that I can "apt-get" pcmciautils, but, without network access, that fails.I tried adding the install cdrom to apt using "apt-cdrom" and then tried to "apt-get" pcmciautils and it got further, installing some dependencies, but acted like it still was unable to locate the pcmciautils package.

Ubuntu :: Fresh Install, Choosing Windows 7 Under GRUB Just Restarts System?

May 6, 2011

I just installed the newest version of Xubuntu using the LiveCD, I chose to install it alongside my current installation of Windows 7, everything went well it seemed, but now when I choose Windows 7 under the GRUB menu it just restarts my system and then takes me back to the grub menu, Xubuntu works fine though and boots fine, I tried sudo update-grub, didn't fix it.Heres the boot info from a script I found, but being rather poor when it comes to diagnosing Linux, I figured it'd be best to post this and see

Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi Not Loading When Computer Restarts?

Dec 19, 2010

However that's about all that did. When I put the disk in and tried the demo and full installation option (or something along those lines), and then restarted my computer, it came up to the start up screen, and asked me if I wanted to run Ubuntu or Windows Vista. So I chose Ubuntu it came to the motherboard screen or whatever and that's it. Nothing else happened, I waited for about 20-30 minutes and it was still there.

So that's my issue, I tried the second option about installing inside of windows but for some reason I just get an error message saying I can't do that whenever it finishes loading. I'm trying to install the latest version 10.10, my computer definitely has the memory for it all
