Fedora Installation :: Upgrade F9 - F10 - Unable To Boot ?

Jan 22, 2009

It's become a tradition since I've installed FC6 on my machine: after each Fedora upgrade, the PC hangs at reboot because of a badly make initrd !

I found this post a while ago that helped me to solve the problem by rebuilding the initrd with the right librairies in it: [url]

So for each upgrade I've done the last 2 years I had to follow again these instructions to rebuild the initrd.

I've just finished the upgrade from F9 to F10 and I faced the following friendly message:


Allright, not a surprise in fact. While rebuilding the initrd I discovered there's no more /lib/i686/nosegneg/ directory in Fedora10's initrd. Therefore I reinstalled the libm-2.9.so library as follows:


Once the initrd rebuilt, I rebooted and faced a second friendly message:


I searched for posts reporting problems with segfault in ld-2.9.so but didn't find anything. So now I'm with a successfully upgraded fedora 10 system that refuses to boot.

By the way, I've done the upgrade using the netinstall CD, all the packages have been retreived online without errors and I think I've therefore the latest versions.

How to making this F10 box to start ?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot After Upgrade To 10.10?

Feb 28, 2011

I updated my pc today, all went well no errors during upgrade. But I am unable to boot. I get the splash screen with Ubuntu and 4 coloured dots, then it goes and i get a page of txt. *starting apparmor profiles skipping profile in /etc/apparmor.d/disable: usr.bin.firefox plymouthd: ply-keyboard.c:384: ply_keyboard_watch_for_input: Assertion `keyboard != ((void*)0)' failed. *Setting sensors limits rather than invoking int scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service ( utility, e.g service s20plymouth-splash start Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an upstart job. you may also use the start ( utility, eg. start s20plymouth-splash Start: uknown job S20plymouth splash

If i leave it the screen just goes black I can get to ttyl by using ctrl&alt&f7 and log in.but thats about it startx just tells me no screens found I expect because xorg isn't used. If i go into recovery mode, failsafe graphics won't load either. So i select netroot and the enter startx which will give me a root desktop. I tried reinstalling grub, but no change. Not sure where to go from here i suspect it is something to do with plymouth? but i am no expert even tho i've been a user for 4 years

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot After Hardware Upgrade?

Oct 13, 2010

yesterday I upgraded my hardware, my specs are as following:

AMD Phenom II X4 965 (new)
Asrock K10N78D Mainboard (new)
1 TB Harddrive (Western Digital WD10EARS) (new)
Palit Geforce 460 GTX
3 GB DDR2-800 RAM

First I installed Windows 7 which worked without any problems. After that I wanted to install Ubuntu 10.10. (32 bit) The installation worked fine and the first boot also worked without any problems. Since then I get strange errors nearly everytime I try to boot up. I'm posting a "screenshot" as an attachment which shows the bottom end of the output before the system stops to work (Alt+Print+B is still working). I also get the same error when trying to boot up from a Live USB-Stick. It's quite random, around 25% of my tries are successful and the system boots up normally.

Things I already tried:

- Testing my RAM (no errors)
- Booting with just one RAM block (same error, also tried a different one)
- Installing 10.04/BIOS Reset/Installing from CD (same problem)

So what do you think? A hardware defect? Then I wonder why Win7 works fine.I would like to post a complete boot log, how can I do that?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot After Kernel Upgrade

Feb 13, 2011

I had problems with booting my PC after kernel updates several times. In the past I just reinstalled Ubuntu and after several tries with running Update Manager things were working again.This time I applied another recommended set of updates, including a kernel upgrade and got the usual "Kernel Panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unkown-block(0,0)"After booting from a LiveCD and running boot_info_script I rebooted again and this time I am getting tons of errors which seem to be generated while running grub. After a few minutes of 'error: syntax error' and 'error: Incorrect command' scrolling through my screen, grub gives my a grub> prompt... Not what I expected!Here is the output of the boot_info_script:

I have two RAIDed disks (mirrored and showing OK during POST). The disk shows above as a6071eb5-6fc6-45b3-babb-c1a2156278d7. Ubuntu 10.10 installs fine from a LiveCD, but gets broken by kernel updates. I can see the original 1 TB disk when I start with the LiveCD and I can access all the files.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Upgrade - With Image #22 And Unable To Boot Windows

May 17, 2010

I recently performed a reinstall of ubuntu after mucking up my partitions, and I am running it dual booted with windows 7.

I recently performed a grub-pc update, but I didn't know what it was asking me to do during the process itself of updating the process.

It asked me at one point where to install grub, and I selected all my partitions because it suggested that if I didn't know. I think that may have damaged my windows section, which was also selection.

I've attached the output for:


Problem symptoms:

1) Weird upgrade error in apt-get
2) Unable to boot windows 7
3) Unable to activate proprietary drivers
4) Perpetually being reminded to restart

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Upgrade To 13

Jul 21, 2010

I burned the Fedora 13 x64 DVD, booted from it, and attempted to upgrade my Fedora 12 x64 OS. It found my previous installation than asked my what to do with my boot partition. I chose to upgrade it, rather than skip or whatever else, only to eventually be met with a message saying the partition is too small by 9M. Really ? This is a 100 MB partition. Is 100 MB now too small for a boot partition ?

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Upgrade From F7 To F9 / Sort It?

Jan 8, 2009

Who has successfully upgraded going from F7 x86_64 to F9 x86_64 using the yum approach? I have had about 0% success getting everything to work correctly doing a fresh install of F9. Everything works correctly in F7( sound, firefox/flash, networking, samba, etc ), so I figure that starting with something know to work and upgrading to F9 might be a better approach that starting with F9 and having it guess.

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Upgrade To 10 Due To Duplicate Labels

Jan 25, 2009

I tried upgrading from Fedora 8 to Fedora 10 using the DVD, but I ran into a few problems.After verifying the install media, it was no longer able to detect the DVD. Annoying, but I got around this by simply rebooting and then skipping the media check.The second problem happened after I tried to "upgrade an existing installation". It gives me the error "Multiple devices with label /boot detected. Devices must have unique labels in order for you system to work. Please correct this problem before upgrading".My system's working just fine, so I'm not sure why I'm getting this error. I have a RAID-1 setup, so would that be causing the error? How do I correct this problem without wiping out my system?

Fedora Installation :: Unable To Login After Fc8 - Fc10 Upgrade

Apr 20, 2009

I upgraded to fedora 10 using yum but i have a problem, the installation went fine and after rebooting i got a login screen. I typed in my user name and password and after a second it returns to the login screen. Im sure the username and password are correct. If i type in another password i get an error message. So how can i log in?

This is what i did to upgrade to Fc10:


Then i got an upgrade wizzard and selected Fedora 10 and than reboot.

In the grub menu only one kernel is present which is the Fc10 so couldn't use the old one.

I've tried to edit the kernel with single for single user that works gives me a command line but im just not experienced enough to figure out how i can use the command line to login.

General :: Unable To Boot Into Windows Vista Installation And Only Boot Fedora

Jan 28, 2010

Having a major issue with my laptop. I am unable to boot into my Vista installation.I am currently posting this through my Fedora 11 installation which I had already. If anyone is interested, the BSOD error is:

0x0000007B (0x80399BB0, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

As far as I know, a '7B' BSOD is usually a hard disk error but I am 100% sure the HDD is fine as I can read and write from both Fedora and Knoppix without issue. Steps taken so far: Obviously, I have tried the usual steps of trying to start windows in safe mode, last good config, and all of the F8 options. When they failed, I used fedora to check for some solutions online (Mostly useless answers from MS) and I found one successful case when a person flashed his BIOS back to an earlier time. Unfortunately, I cant get the BIOS update I got from the Dell website to boot from a USB drive (Says invalid boot disc - the BIOS on it is in the .exe format which I can't use in linux) and I do not have a floppy drive on the laptop.

So, I put in my Dell drivers and utilities CD hoping that it would give me some option to update (Or roll back) the BIOS but there was no such option. However, it did give me a load of diagnostic options including repair options by symptom so went with the "Unable to boot from BIOS". Unfortunately, that didnt help me at all. So, I got my Vista installation disc (OEM supplied) and managed to get to the repair menu (Which I had among my F8 options anyway) but this also has the option to reinstall. Unfortunately, it states that "Upgrade is unavailable" and that a clean install is the only thing I can select (At the expense of my files and settings).

As for the repair options, the automatic recovery doesn't seem to find any errors, asks to reset and see if all is well (It isn't). For some reason, system restore doesn't detect any restore points. There are no windows memory errors detected and I have no backups. So, i'm left with a command prompt that, by default, is asking for a file in this folder: X:/WINDOWS/System32/ I have no idea where it is getting the X: drive from - I have C and D drives for windows only. As per another online guide, I tried:

Jul 6, 2009

I cannot seem to get past the "creating File System.." window on a laptop upgrade

Setup: Thinkpad T23 (dual boot) upgrade from fc10 using DVD iso.checked with checksum and burnt by K3b.

History/actions taken:

Burnt iso to DVD and install/upgrade froze "creating File System " froze after approximately 10 minutes.

Checked disk OK on laptop, tried again, same fault.

Bought another DVD.(different die) and tried again, same fault.

Tried a "Linux Format" fc 10 disk and that works, also tried a PCLinux LXF disk which also worked.

The laptop does not report any problems at bootup and I do not not what else to try

Now, however, I keep getting "disk not ok" at 95% of the disk test.

Fedora Installation :: Fail Upgrade Attempt - Unable To Find Root

May 26, 2010

I am attempting to upgrade Fedora 12 to 13. I get an error screen that said root could not be found. Four options are given. Not sure exactly their wording, but two appear to allow you to cancel the other two warn that if you reinitialize you will wipe out all data.

I have a Vista partition and a Fedora partition. I've added the vista ntfs partition to fstab with no help. All of the partition use the long UUID form. I added the root location (root (hd0,5) to the upgrade menu item in grub.conf and that didn't work either.

I'm reluctant to proceed for fear of initializing the entire drive. I could live with installing Fedora 13 over the existing partitions.

Fedora Installation :: F14 Will Not Boot After Upgrade From F12

Nov 27, 2010

I upgraded from 12 using an x86_64 installation DVD on a Dell Poweredge 300. All seemed to go well until right at the end when it took over two hours not to 'finish' the upgrade. Cycling round into the shell prompt showed the machine was idle and there didn't seem to be anything waiting for anything to complete. In the end I was forced to re-boot.

I got a kernel panic saying it couldn't mount on unknown block (0,0).I re-ran the upgrade DVD and it said there was one rpm left to apply called upstart-[something I missed] and it successfully applied this and then claimed I had successfully completed the upgrade. Sadly, re-booting got the same.Using the older F12 kernel still works, so my server is operational, but believes it is still F12 (and these point to (0,0) as well so it isn't that). If I try to do a yum upgrade, it will only try to upgrade a few F12 packages that must have appeared in the last few days as it was fully patched a week ago.

I think the kernel panic may be due to missing disc drivers from what my googling reveals, or a missing initrd image. There is no initrd parameter in grub.conf, I've tried creating one manually but I get a load of errors saying the /lib/modules/2..../modules.dep file is missing. Another machine that I have upgraded has such an initrd parameter in grub.conf - so I may well need to put this in.

Fedora Installation :: Boot Hangs After Upgrade From F11 To F12

Dec 19, 2009

I have just upgraded my F11 x86_64 system using the DVD ISO.

After rebooting as requested:
1) Cupsd fails to start - it can't find libaudit.so.1 (this doesn't worry me in itself).
2) Boot process proceeds until starting hald. This gets an OK response, but then the process hangs. No further output appears on the console. Pressing [ENTER] just causes a blank line to appear on the console. Pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL causes a reboot, and the same symptoms re-occur.

I'm tempted to boot with the rescue disk, save a few critical data directories, then start afresh with a clean install, but is there anything I can do to salvage the upgrade?
