Fedora Installation :: Unable To Install F10 Via Dvd
Jan 17, 2009
Hi, I attempt to install f10 via dvd. I am asked about my language and keyboard. When I move on from here I get a message. the fedora disk was not found in any of your cdrom drivesI toddle off to my laptop and the install works fine My computer has 2 drives - CD & DVD. Does this message indicate that the computer is only looking at the CD drive. I guess I need to add some options to the install command.
install vxl-1.11 using cmake and am getting various problems like Avi File NOT found and many more files Dart,ECW,DC1394,MPEG include dir,Xerces bxml are not found. install vxl...and i would like to know what are they dependency packages required to be installed for vxl....
i have recently got a system assembled with the following configuration
intel g31 mainboard intel core2duo 2.8 proc. 4 gb ram 1 gb ati radeon hd4650 pci xpress card 160 gb harddrive with win-xp pro
i have been trying to install fedora 10 since last week but i am not able to run it in gui mode the anaconda installer tells me failed to load in gui mode and running in text mode only. i am new to fedora and am next to unknown. what should be done to get the fedora running on me computer
During installation of fedora 10 i depare with a issue that requires internet connection to proceed the installation. since i don't have a internet connection in eth0 just have one in wlan0 that is not detected by the configuration i didi not could install the fedora 10. What was my mistake, i download the Fedora-10-i386-netinst.iso to boot. Should i download another image to boot.
Last week I put together a new build:Asus p6t deluxe v2, i7 920, etc etc And installed Win7 RC which worked perfectly, however for the past couple days I've been trying to install Fedora but it seems to never work. The F11 Full disk cannot load anaconda during install, but still manages to install, however the installation cannot boot. The live disk loads, but then a black screen with eth0 and eth1 link is down pops up. So I tried other dists, Ubuntu 8.04 cannot boot, 9.04 boots and installs, but after reboot doesnt work. Anyone got any ideas as to why I cannot install Linux. Also in Win7, I cannot install Fedora as a VM. It just goes to 100% load while booting and such.
Just installed a fresh copy of F10. After install, when I boot It goes through a screen where it shows 3 bars loading. Once the last bar (white) is finished, and fedora 10 becomes white, nothing happens. If i press any key, it will give me a msg saying something along the lines of "reading contents of drive vol000 this make take a while". I rebooted after 2 hours. When i came back, I waited 8 hours.
I have downloaded the Fedora 10 i386 ISO from fedora and created a DVD with Nero. On boot the machine starts to Install, carries out a media check but at the next stage comecs up with an error that the media does not contain fedora 10
Actually I found a discussion on this topic. But my problem a bit different from the discussion made over there...The major discussion in that topic is related to the Graphics Issue. But my problem is with the CPU(as my machine says so).... I am posting my screenshot herewith. Please take some time to review it. This would be grateful.
Actually the error says: "This Kernel requires an x86-64 CPU. but only detected i686 CPU. Unable to Boot - please use a kernel appropriate for ur CPU." What does this mean?? My machine has Intel Core 2 Duo t6600 processor. Is Virtualization Playing a role in this issue...??
I want to install Fedora 15 on my asus eeepc 1015pw I have borrowed an external dvd driver and burned a x86-64 version Fedora 15 dvd but after I formatted the partitions, the installation program ask for network connection and it is failed to deploy the network card... so I been force to quit the installation.... I also try to config the grub by adding the "linux askmethod" but it is seems that external deriver is not in the options...
I'm trying to install Fedora 15 on my Lenovo S10-2 netbook, using a USB drive I created with LiveUSB-creator, as suggested. The creation of the USB drive works fine, but when I try to boot from it on the Lenovo, I get cryptic error messages :ERROR : idle with IF=0 -- and then some misc. error codes.I have no idea what this means or how to progress from here
Tried on two computers, one laptop, one desktop. Downloaded DVD iso image and burned to DVD. Booted from CD and boot loader appears, and started count down. After the count down finished, nothing happen. Then I downloaded the netinstall image and repeat the procedure but with exact same result, nothing happened after the count down.I tested the download iso by installing it to a VMware VM, and installation completed. I don't even know where to start trouble shooting The only thing common between the two machine is the Nvidia graphic chip.
im having problems finalizing the installation of fedora 10 on a new ASUS P5E-VM that uses Intel G35 chipset.
1. i think fedora did not recognize the video driver since all the installation was in text mode and i cannot use "init 5" to load a UI
2. i tried to find some drivers (if any1 can recommend a rpm that i can download i will apprichiate it very much) but could not transfer them to the fedora since i could not mount any USB disk on key in the linux i tried using: mount -t vfat /mnt/usb (after mkdir /mnt/usb)
3. i tried to burn the driver but then could not access the dvd...
4. no internet connection yet... but thats because i cannot access my network drives that are on the USB key as well...
I tried to install Fedora 13 on X201 for a dual boot with Windows. Since there is no CD/DVD ROM on my laptop, I created a new logic partition and put the DVD iso image file of Fedora 13 on this partition. I also extracted the isolinux and image directories out of the DVD image and put it in the partition. I used grub for dos to try to boot to the installation. Here is the command I typed in grub console (For whatever reason, it did not recognize my menu.lst).
and then boot. The booting process went well until it reached "waiting for hardware to initialize", and then the screen turned black. I thought this happened because Fedora could not recognized (X201 has an integrated Intel HD Graphics adapter). So I tried adding different options to the line kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz , such as "kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz text", or "kernel /isolinux/vmlinuz xdriver=vesa nomodeset", and it still did not solve the problem.
I am unable to Install Fedora10 in my system as one of the multiple operating systems and it gets hanged after probing for Hardware devices and so ...I get fedora trademark sought of symbol and even after waiting any amount of time it doesnt go further..neither the keyboard works nor the mouse pointer moves... I am stuck at this screen shown in the installation screenshot...I get this screen however I dont get the options back or next or its that I am unable to see this options on the screen at all and mouse gets hanged and even keyboard doesnt work...
Initially after booting with the media it doesnt even prompt me to press any key to boot from CD or Dvd or I get any screen to select the option for the mode of installation like text based installation or graphical installation..it hardly shows me this screen for even a fraction of second as well...
It takes me to the screen
1) Install or upgrade fedora 2) rescue existing installation... 3) 4) Memory test
when I click on install fedora I am taken to the fedora splash screen and nothing goes ahead... I tried in rescue mode as well... In rescue mode it asks me for language selection...keyboard layout... later it doesnt go ahead as well... I have checked the installation media and it confirmed that the installation media is good... I use Redhat 4.1 version and It works fine except for the message drivers/usb/hid.c core message received at :75 while trying to restart shutdown or access a virtual console... Along with Redhat and while trying to install fedora I have windows server 2008,Windows vista on that harddisk...
I have F11 running on my Acer laptop and I'd like to install F13 on a newly created partition.I have downloaded the DVD install a couple of days ago and tried to boot it using different options, but always failed. Below my attempts:
1) first option (Install or upgrade): it took a looooong time (like 4 or 5 hours) to get to the Loading vmlinuz message; after a couple more hours it was still there (with 4 or 5 dots more) and I decided that enough was enough;
2) second option (basic video driver): I tried it with and without the nomodeset option and in both cases the Loading vmlinuz message was immediate, but couldn't get past it;
3) first option (Install or upgrade) with the nomodeset option: again the Loading vmlinuz message was immediate, it added up to 10 or 11 dots and then hung;
4) I also tried to boot the same DVD on another laptop (just to rule out media problems) and quickly reached the first install screen, so the DVD is ok I think.
Note that in ALL the above described attempts, when the boot process hang I see my HD led constantly on and also the DVD led flashing.
I am trying to install 2 or 3 versions of linux on my hardisk of 500GB capacity.The configuration of my machine is Intel Dual Core, 4 GB Ram, 3.0 Processor Windows XP is not installed on this.I tried to use a tool called GParted but was unable to use as it was not able to bring up the XServer So I booted the machine with fedora14 installation CD and chose "Custom Layout" After reading about the partitions needed by Fedora I created 3 partitions in /dev/sda
/dev/sda1 the boot of 500MB formated as ext4 /dev/sda2 the swap of 6096MB formatted as swap /dev/sda3 / size 150GB formatted as ext4
The installation went well and fc14 runs well on this.
However when I went to install the other linux version ....the installer was not able to recognize the unallocated space of nearly 350 GB on the hard disk.....So I am not able to create new partitions and then install the new linux on the newer partition.As a result I am unable to make use of the remaining space on the HDisk.I think I should have created /dev/sda4 /dev/sda5 etc when I installed fc14 itself....
Would appreciate some tips on how to install the other versions of Linux on this HDisk....
I cannot install Kubuntu (or Unbuntu) 10.4 on my husband's computer. I have spent 5 hours on this and cannot get anywhere. I am deeply frustrated. The iso I burned to CD is good (works on 2 other computers). His computer will not boot from USB, no matter what I do to the drive order in BIOS. After loading the blue screen with the Kubuntu logo on it (and the blue-white dots), the screen changes to black and shows the following text:
BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash) (initrafs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system.
He really needs to get rid of WinXP. Kubuntu is what I have on my computer (and love it!). Here is some info about his computer:
OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600 OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation
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.
I am trying to dual boot Vista and F10 and I have 2 different 400GB hard drives to do it on. On the first HD, I have Vista installed but when I try to install F10 on the second, I get this error message:
Quote: Error: Unable to read group information from repositories. this is a problem with the generation of your install tree. I've looked it up and found some forums but none answer how to "fix" it (if it is indeed something that you fix).
I'm doing a Kickstart install of Fedora 11 with a DVD ISO as the installation source and the ks.cfg file in the root folder of the DVD. The error message I get is: "Unable to read group information from repositories. This is a problem with the generation of your install tree."
I downloaded and mounted debian-8.2.0-amd64-netinst.iso on my work machine's VirtualBox v5.0.12 to check out Debian stable/Jessie's installer and clean installation in case I need to do it soon. I like the new installer compared to 11/24/2011 on my old desktop machine. It is much nicer, fancier with its advanced options, etc.
However, I ran into issues with its "Select and Install" part when I selected desktop managers (e.g., KDE and Gnome) and continued. It failed as shown in [URL] .... images. Why? I tried again from scratch and same thing. If I don't select any and just select non-GUI stuff (e.g, SSH and standard system utilities), then it works but I want the pretty GUI stuff.
My laptop is currently running on Windows 7 Ultimate. I have a 320 GB HDD, which I have partitioned as follows. C: Drive as Windows 40 GB capacity and successively partitioned the rest of the drives for 50 GB capacity and left an unallocated space of 67 GB for fedora 13 x64 installation. The problem that I am facing is, that I am unable to install fedora on this unallocated space..even though I am checking the option for "Creating custom Layout". When I check the option for "Creating Custom Layout" Ive been shown with the only option to install fedora on the unused space on the HDD which is around 265 GB. I am also attaching a screen shot of my disk management. how I can install Fedora on this unallocated space of 67 GB?
I am unable to change the installation location for the boot loader when installing Fedora 12 in the graphical installation mode. The 'Change device' button does nothing when I click on it during installation. I'd like to install the boot loader on my /boot partition. Is there some kind of bug that is preventing me from doing this?I am trying to install from the Fedora 12 386 DVD.

I have an older dell CSX laptop that I would like to load up with ubuntu or kubuntu... or anything other than XP. The problem is that the laptop does not have the option to boot from USB, I don't have a CD/Floppy drive to attach to the media bay and I don't have a pcmia that will PXE boot... So, do I have any other options? I really don't want to go purchase anything for this laptop because it's old, but if I could get it reloaded with anything it would be ok for a netbook... It will boot into XP, but its very sluggish.
