Fedora Installation :: Syslinux 3.75: Could Not Find Kernel Image

Jul 5, 2009

I am currently running Fedora 10 XFCE on an Acer Aspire 1 (1.6ghz atom, 1.5gb ram, 8gb ssd). I am trying to install Fedora-11-i686-Live-XFCE via USB stick (Kingston 4gb) and am having no luck. I downloaded the .iso via bittorrent. If I use liveusb-creator: .iso passes checksum, installs boot image, installs syslinux, claims it's complete. When I try to boot, or simulate booting with qemu, I get the message "Could not find kernel image: linux" If I use

Code:

# livecd-iso-to-disk /home/jorge/downloads/Fedora-11-i686-Live-XFCE/Fedora-11-i686-Live-XFCE.iso /dev/sdb1

it says that the .iso passes checksum, installs live image, updates boot config file, and setup USB stick as a live image. Once again though, when I try to boot, or simulate booting with qemu, I get the same message "Could not find kernel image: linux"

Fedora Installation :: USB Install Can't Find Image

Nov 24, 2009

I downloaded Fedora-12-x86_64-DVD.iso and placed it on a 16GB USB drive using the Windows LiveUSB creator which had downloaded when I first download Fedora 11.The USB boots fine and I choose the language and the the keyboard layout. I tell it the image is on the USB drive it displays /images/install.img as the image.

However after going through all the steps up to choosing where I want it throws an error saying cannot find image #1 on the hard disk.Now if I boot again and instead of choosing the USB drive I hit F2 and then choose the USB drive then /Images then the install.img and press O.K. it says it isn't and just cycles around the choose drive/image.

CentOS 5 :: PXE/NFS Install - Could Not Find Kernel Image?

Jul 1, 2010

In order to not post into the wrong forum, I am wondering if an issue related to performing a PXE based NFS install can be posted here, or does it belong in the networking forum? Seems that I've seen both, and I've done several searches using parameters/error messages that I'm seeing and can't seem to find a post that relates.

I have results of "./getinfo.sh network", and other necessary config file info ready to post, but want to make certain on correct forum.

OpenSUSE Install :: Computer Won't Boot After Restoring Image

Jan 31, 2011

I've recently begun using PING (Partimage is not Ghost) imaging software, and it works great with other Linux distros. Upon my first use on openSUSE, I found that I could not restore the image onto another computer. After a successful restoration of the image, I get: "Could not find /dev/mapper/isw_ddedgibjfd_ARRAY_part2 Want to fall back to /dev/mapper/isw_ddedgibjfd_ARRAY_part2? (Y/n)" during the first boot. I don't know what to do, I've tried taking multiple images, and restoring them on multiple computers, but I always get the same error.

Ubuntu :: Asking For Kernel During Boot - "could Not Find Image"

Aug 7, 2010

I just built this computer with a bunch of old parts, and i put in a blank hard drive. There is no operating system on this computer yet. I put the Ubuntu Usb into the computer and made it boot from the Usb. Everything looked fine and good, until it said "boot:". It wanted me to type something in. So i clicked enter and it said "could not find kernel image: linux".

Fedora Installation :: Take The 686MB 32bit Iso Image And Put It On A 2GB Usb Drive And Boot / Install?

Feb 5, 2011

i have been working with computers since the age of 11 "22 now" and have taught myself everything i know, from computer repair & networking to Web design, music production and Graphics design, using programs like photoshop, dreamweaver, sony acid, i learned it all myself, anyways that's just a little insight!!!

OK so here is my problem, i have an OLD P4 2.8 GHZ PC with 512MB ram, last year i was able to burn i believe fedora 9 to a CD and install it on this PC before i removed the drive to use as an external drive. "Dont know where the CD went"

I just recently purchased a 40GB hard drive and am looking to reinstall Fedora 14 on this P4 PC, i want to use this PC as a HTPC just for internet, ..... and stream videos, maybe some internet games etc etc, my problem is my main PC cant burn any cd/dvds due to the Drive's being burned out from burning xbox games at 4x on a regular basis, the PC i want to install Fedora on only accepts CD's and even then it barely reads anything!!

Now that you know my situation i want to know if i can take the 686MB 32bit iso image and put it on a 2GB usb drive and boot/install it to the HD that way on my old P4 PC, i want Fedora 14 as my main desktop, no partitions or walk arounds. If this helps the mobo on that OLD pc with the P4 is a p4vmm2 v5 i believe the p4 is 2.8ghz, ram is 512mb and i was able to install a 64mb nivida card agp 4x over the stock 32mb agp card it came with!

Last year windows xp was sketchy on it, i installed i think Fedora 9 and it ran great, but at that time it was a 120GB maxtor ide, and i decided to use it as an external drive for my main pc to back up alot of goodies, in the end the drive just randomly stopped working and just a few faint clicking sounds before it died. The current hard drive i will be installing on this P4 P4VMM2 mobo is a 40GB Seagate 7200. In the end do you think i can do a HD install from a USB stick with this P4VMM2 MOBO with a 40GB Seagate 7200 HD.

Red Hat / Fedora :: PXE Boot Kernel Image Format ?

Feb 17, 2010

Ive been trying to PXE boot a XEN kernel image in gzip format, and I was getting Invalid or corrupt kernel format error. Ive seen that other kernel images having a file type of Linux kernel x86 boot executable RO-rootFS are bootable. (both are bootable using grub anyhow).

Is there any way to convert the b/n the formats, or any other solution?

I was booting a Virtualbox instance, again I guess that shouldn't matter because pxelinux loads from tftp properly, but it doesn't even proceed to load the kernel. I think the issue here is with the image format itself rather than what it contains, or where it runs.

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Boot After Accidently Removing Kernel Image

Apr 19, 2011

I have Ubuntu 10.10 installed on my laptop.Its a dual boot with XP, have been using ubuntu/xp for a while now..Till now i always used to remove older kernel images after ubuntu update, then update grub and do "sudo apt-get autoclean" never had any problem at all.i skipped the second step, i removed the old kernel image and did "Autoclean" on apt-get but forgot to update grub.

Now after i have reboot, when grub loads i can see only 2 "Memtest" lines in grub list and 1 "windows xp" line.the "Linux kernel generic" line is missing. I can boot in xp (have done just that to post this) but since there is no line in grub list to boot into Ubuntu, cant boot in Ubuntu.Is there any option, something i can do at "Grub" to boot into Ubuntu?

Fedora Installation :: 15 Post Install Boot - Computer Hangs Before Grub Loads

Jun 5, 2011

I performed a clean install of Fedora 15 from DVD and it goes fine until the end when the install program says to reboot the computer. Once I do that, the computer hangs before Grub loads, i.e. just after all of the BIOS messages, so there isn't any error message to indicate what is wrong. I had no issues with Fedora 14.

OpenSUSE Install :: Find Old Kernel / But It Still Won't Boot

Sep 23, 2010

My laptop threw a wobbly recently (same time as kernel update?) I have got it to find the old kernel, but it still won't boot.It's a 11.3 install, dual-booted with XP. The /boot partition is in the root partition - sda7. Why is it trying to mount sda7 as swap? (not in fstab like that)

Fedora Installation :: Cloned F11 Install Refuses To Boot (kernel Hang)?

Jun 17, 2009

I installed F11 x86 from the DVD onto one of my machines using a total of 4 partitions:

1. /boot
2. /
3. /home
4. swap

I then created an image of the first 3 partitions with fsarchiver and restored it onto a second machine (with different hardware). Grub was loaded onto the second machine as well without a problem. The new cloned install will get past grub fine but the kernel hangs. After removing 'rhgb quiet' from the boot options, I can see that the last message outputted to the console is something about the PS/2 mouse - this doesn't make sense as the mouse is working perfectly fine.

Additionally, I can still reboot using ctrl-alt-delete so the kernel/CPU must still be responsive. I have tried troubleshooting the various pieces of hardware, so I'm guessing it's something with the clone. All the cloned filesystems appear to be fully intact; the partition UUID's are all the same. I've even tried changing the UUID's both in grub and /etc/fstab to hardcoded /dev/sdaX , but this does not fix anything.

Ubuntu :: Could Not Find Kernel Image

Feb 12, 2010

I decided today to try Xubuntu on my netbook.I downloaded an ISO of it, formatted my old 2GB Sandisk Cruzer Micro, and used Unetbootin to copy all the stuff onto the drive.Of course with flashing cursor after "boot:". So I tried rewriting with Unetbootin, and then even tried writing an ISO of Kubuntu to the flash drive.Each and every time, I get the same message.

Fedora Installation :: Dual Boot Of 13 And Install Windows Xp On A Toshiba Satellite - Cannot Find C:inerrordialog.exe

Aug 4, 2010

I figured I would begin delving more into the open source environment by dual booting fedora and windows xp pro. Windows xp WAS already installed on the laptop, so I went through the steps to get fedora installed. Everything appeared to be working fine. Fedora came up nicely, and then I tried to boot windows (using grub boot loader). The Windows splash screen appeared, making me think things were fine. But suddenly the screen went black, with the computer going through a restart. This happened every time I tried to boot windows. So I began scouring the web to see if someone had a similar problem. I tried numerous things, but none of them worked. Of them, this appears to have gotten me farther than anything:

Going into grub I changed: rootnoverify (hd0,0)
to: rootnoverify (hd0,1)

Everything else remained the same. When I made this change, the computer went through Ramdisk, and the Toshiba recovery tool. Then two dialog windows appear in secession.

The first stating: Windows cannot find c:inerrordialog.exe
The second stating: Windows cannot find c:inootpriority.exe

I stumbled across information about the recovery console tool. Well, since my laptop has an OEM installation, there is no recovery console tool. But eventually, I was able to find one that I could download. (In case anyone is interested, here is the link for the [URL]

I burned the image to a cd on another computer, and then attempted to boot to the console from the cd/dvd drive on the laptop. But the system crashed, with the customary blue screen. I was hoping to be able to execute the chdsk command to repair whatever damage there might be, but this problem occurs each time I run the image. Fortunately I backed stuff up before this. I'm just hoping that I won't have to go through the ugly process of restoring everything because it's a lot to restore.

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Can't Find Menu.lst / Can't Boot Kernel

Feb 10, 2010

I seem to have determined a few other things about my "only gets as far as a GRUB command line" problem:To recap, sda3 (GRUB hd0,2) is the main Linux partition; sda9 (GRUB hd0,8) is the boot partition.GRUB is 0.92.Installation was from an 8.04LTS live CD (at least, that's what the envelope says it is)/"/boot/grub" (i.e., "/grub" on sd9/hd0,8) contains a "menu.lst" file. I modified it (had to do a "sudo gedit" from a command line!) to (1) comment out the line that hides the boot menu, (2) change the timeout from 3 seconds to 90, and (3) add a menu line based on my succesful manual IPL of DOS.

It still boots to a GRUB command line. If I do a "configfile /grub/menu.lst," a boot menu comes up. DOS will successfully IPL, but Linux still gets a "no setup signature found," (ditto for "recovery mode"), which suggests either a bad kernel, or a kernel that's too big for the GRUB to handle.Why would it be finding its way to grub, but not finding the boot menu file?Why would the live CD come up just fine, yet the GRUB and kernel it installs fail?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Find/install Kernel 2.6.32-10

Jan 17, 2010

I have a MythBuntu system running 9.10 and as many others I am having issues with my wireless card controlled by ndiswrapper (networks are detected but it is unable to obtain an IP address most of the time, once in a while it connects, it also has the "invalid cmd 12" issue which fix is described here).

So I found this thread here (see post #30 on the bottom) and I'd like try upgrading the kernel to a version which Synaptics apparently doesn't offer. So my question is basically threefold. Where do I find/download the kernel (is there a way to use apt get ...) What method do I use to install it (I've found several directions on how to compile it, if someone could point to the most complete ones, I would appreciate it. If for some reason something goes wrong and I need to downgrade again, how do I do that (Synaptics?).BTW, I can hook it up to the network through ethernet and ssh into it from my Mac Mini to work on it.

Fedora Installation :: Xen-kernel - Unable To Boot In Normal Kernel

Feb 11, 2010

I use a pretty fresh installed RHEL 5.4, which should be very similar to Fedora. After the basic installation I installed xen and xen-kernel via yum with no errors. I can select the xen-kernel at boot time. But after booting the normal kernel shows up.

[root@noname boot]# uname -r
2.6.18-164.11.1.el5

My /boot/grub/menu.lst looks like:

default=1
timeout=5
splashimage=(hd0,0)/grub/splash.xpm.gz

[code]....

I can't see anything wrong and I did not change/try anything.

Debian Configuration :: Computer Won't Boot After Dd Image Restore

Mar 1, 2016

I have a Debian Jessie 32 bits machine with standard partitions : one EFI, one for the root system and a swap.

I did a dd image backup of it hard drive thinking i would be easy to restore it or clone to another device... but it seems it is not that simple ! My PC won't boot : no bootable drive found !

I did the same once with a 64 bit Debian Jessie which i fixed using an ubuntu live CD with boot-repair, but here with the 32 bits version it doesn't work : it keeps saying i have an EFI incompatible partition and i should use a 64 bits linux...

Note : i boot-repair from a 64 bits ubuntu live cd. Should i use a 32 bits version ? Because i can"t make a 32 bits Debian live CD to boot, usb key won't show up in boot options (32 bits install CD works fine)

I ha read some things and tried some others but nothing works

Grub and EFI are really obscure for me...

How could i fix my debian 32 boot ?

Or how can i properly clone my debian 32 on other PC ? am i missing something using dd ? should i use another tool ?

Ubuntu :: Computer Won't Boot After Restoring Clonezilla Image?

Jul 18, 2011

I have long been using clonezilla as my backup/restore software and have never had a problem with it before, ever. Today I backed up my entire disk (windows 7 and Ubuntu 10.10) and upgraded to 11.04 to try it out. I didn't like it, so I decided to restore the backup. Now I can't boot my computer. It gets to a black screen and nothing happens. No error message, nothing. I can still boot from a live USB (which is what I am using now), and I can also boot from a Windows Live CD. I tried using the MBR repair on Windows and reinstalling Grub through the Ubuntu Live USB. Neither of them have worked. Do you have any ideas what the problem might be?
