Ubuntu Installation :: Install From A Working Live Cd But Got Medium Not Found Error

Feb 23, 2011

heres what happenned:

1. had working xp install on 320 gb hard disk with only one partition.
2. backed up and used easeus to shrink and create new partition on same hard drive.
3. tried to install from a working live cd but got medium not found error.
4. looked for fix but didnt find it so i used wubi to install it to the partition i created.
5. worked but annoyingly slow so looked for guide to switch from wubi to full install.
6. followed guide and it installed to a new partition i made with gparted and it formatted that one to ext4 but i still had the wubi install which i didnt want. (btw, non-wubi is much > wubi install).
7. went to xp to uninstall wubi, delete wubi partition, and grow full ubuntu install partition with easeus. easeus requires reboot.

8. restart comp to find an error that said no partition found and something else about grub rescue.
9. try live cds but hard drive not detected and tried win7 and xp but they didnt even get into setup
10. make plan: get bro to format my hardd disk using his compyter so i csn try ubuntu onw more time

i got a bunch of different types of errors but im really close to giving up on it entirely.

Ubuntu :: Mounting DVD - No Medium Found

Jan 13, 2010

I can not get this DVD to mount for love nor money. It works fine in the crappy Windows POC I just pulled it from to replace a DVD that was doing a similar thing. I'm guessing the last update sent something wonky.

Code: #:/dev$ sudo mount /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom1
mount: /dev/sr0: unknown device
#:/dev$ dmesg | grep dvd
[ 6.485877] sr0: scsi3-mmc drive: 48x/48x writer dvd-ram cd/rw xa/form2 cdda tray fstab .....

The above is stuff that other threads all over the internet seem to ask for with mount related problems but most of it is semi-gibberish to me. I've learned tonight what a mount point is, how to make one, what the columns in fstab is, how to (sort of) use the mount command in the CLI, that I might want to look in dmesg for stuff using grep, that google sometimes has more noise than signal and that I don't want to fix computers for a living.

Errors like mount: no medium found on /dev/sr0 are fairly common too BTW. I'm going spare and spent what should have been a chilled out night of DVD watching getting stressed and digging about in the guts PCs. Had I known it was a hardware problem I would not have bothered changing drives over. There is a disk in the drive and the errors are the same if that is a CD or a DVD.

Ubuntu :: Disk Required To Run Virtual Box OSE - Fatal No Bootable Medium Found

May 13, 2010

Alright story is: i needed apache tom cat to work on my project, i don't wish to install it in ubuntu so i can keep my system clean and fast. I installed virtual box OSE. Do i need a disk to run? Cause it says "Fatal no bootable medium found system halted" Edit: alright i inserted my winxp disk and now it is installing, i need to know if any change i make will damage my computer? Since i allocated only 10GB to this virtual disk, now it is formatting it in NTFS...i hope it won't have any conflict with ubuntu's ext4 file system.

SUSE :: No Hard Disks Were Found For Installation

Aug 5, 2009

the hard disc has two partitions, one is 156gb ntfs, currently with windows xp prof sp2, and I am trying to install linux to the second partition, also currently ntfs.I am not a total newbie (i used fedora 10 last semester and ubuntu the semester before that). I have tried installing ubuntu9.04, fedora 10, fedora 11, and opensuse11.1 to this computer, and every time the installation probes for hard disks it comes up with zip, unless I have my external disks connected. Otherwise "No hard disks were found for the installation. Please check your hardware!"with OK button.

I also tried with gparted to see if I could find the hard disk, and still had no luck. I googled my problem and found others with similar problem but no satisfactory solution.does anybody have any idea what could be wrong and how to fix it??

I wanted to package my software as an RPM by rpmbuild command. When I run that it complained that gcc not found.

I downloaded gcc and tried to install that from a tar ball. And it complained about cc: coomand not found. I dont know why is this error being shown because I think cc and gcc are the same. Correct me if I am wrong. My system details are:

I tried to download rpm files for gcc but they dont exist for Suse 10.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrading From 7 To 12 Via DVD Medium

Mar 25, 2010

I am planning on doing an upgrade on one of our systems from Fedora Core 7 to the Fedora Core 12 distribution. I have read Bruce Byfield's article "Upgrading to the newest Fedora release", and the approach that I am planning on taking is the upgrading via the DVD medium.

Quote: Please don't even bother trying this... each upgrade between fedora versions has it's risks, I'd give you a 4% chance of success between these two versions. And if you upgrade, you'll not end up with FC12, you'll end up with a horribley messy mish mash of a distribution that just happens to mostly contain FC12 rpms. Do yourself a proper favour and save important data and configs, and reinstall. and then keep it up to date properly. Another quote was as follows:

Quote: Glennzo posted a thread in [URL] about upgrading which surfaced in a recent thread. If it's a production system I'd strongly suggest copying the setup to a test slash staging server to see if cleanly installing and modifying F12 versus upgrading to 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 is more efficient slash less error-prone. I am inclined to try doing the upgrade on a test server to see if it works. Should I even bother with that approach or just proceed with the scratch install?

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Find Medium With Live Filesystem

Apr 24, 2010

I'm trying to install netbook remix on my out-of-the-box 1005PE with windows 7. I used LinuxLive USB Creator 2.4 to put the netbook remix file onto my usb device. I get to the part where I choose whether I want persistent mode, live mode, installation or a few other options. I chose installation. Here is what I see on my screen starting a little before where I think the error is:

Begin: Running /scripts/casper-premount ...

BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu7) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. Unable to find a medium containing a live file system I've tried the whole process several times. I've tried redownloading the netbook remix file, reusing LinuxLive and trying Unetbootin-windows-433.

General :: Which Backup Medium Do Prefer?

Mar 23, 2010

What do you prefer using for your backup medium and/or method? I'm thinking about the issue because I've simply used a spare hard drive but am considering getting a flash drive for an extra backup. Specifically, if anyone breaks into my home and steals my computer, I will lose both hard drives. I would keep the flash drive somewhere else that the burglar hopefully won't go through, saving the most important data. Losing the data would be far, far more upsetting than losing the hardware. Anyway, do you use hard drives for backup, or do you prefer something else? Flash drives? I wouldn't guess that CDs are very popular for backups, because they hold only 700 MB. DVDs, perhaps?

I have verified the disk i created is valid and used it to install on my laptop.

However, now i am trying to install on a brand new system:

AMD Phenom II X4 945 Deneb 3.0GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 95W Quad-Core Processor

Western Digital WD15EARS Hardrive

After several failed attempts to install Ubuntu I installed windows XP with no problem.

I have seen several posts about re-aligning this model of hard drive for the 4k blocks.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Find Medium Containing Live File System

May 3, 2011

I have a 4 core Sandy Bridge Win7-64 system running Parallels Desktop 4. I created a new VM with a CDROM connected to the 11.04 ISO. It perks for a little while showing some Ubuntu stuff then I get the console message "(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system".I don't get this. It is obviously booting from the CDROM. I'm guessing it does not like the unformatted disk. Why doesn't it offer to format the disk of start the installation prcess? Is it something else?

Ubuntu :: Installation - Unable To Find A Medium Containing A Live File System

Aug 9, 2011

Background info: So I installed 11.04 32 bit and it messed my computer up therefore after trying everything I got rid of it, now I've been trying to install the 10.04 long support version from the official ubuntu website and it doesn't seem to be working. Neither the 32 bit version or the 64 bit. To convert the iso etc. etc. I used "Universal-USB-Installer-" which is reccommended from the ubuntu website and it didn't work. So I tried "unetbootin-win-549" which a friend recommended to me - didn't work either.

Main problem: The menu loads up when I turn on the computer and whether I click on the install ubuntu, or try ubuntu from usb option - both go to the ubuntu screen where the dot's under "ubuntu" flash for about 2 minutes before taking me to a screen where the following message appears: Code: (initframs) unable to find a medium containing a live file system And after about 5 seconds intervals, messages similar to this appear for about 7 or 8 times:

Code: usb 1-3: device not accepting address 7. error -110 new high speed usb device using ehci_hcd and address 8 Each time they appear the parts which differ is the numbers from the text above i.e. usb 2-3....

Software :: Suse 11.2 K3b No Cd/dvd Writer Found ?

Nov 29, 2010

After my last online system update, ubuntu 10.10.1 (pre-release) now crashes and the last thing written to the screen is "starting nbd client service" so I am trying to burn a copy of the new 10.10 final DVD on my Suse 11.2 install to try to recover or reinstall ubu.

With a stock install of suse 11.2/64 bit, k3b does a system config probe and finds 'no cd/dvd writer found'. My writer worked fine on the now-comatose ubuntu.

If I put in an ubuntu 10.10.1 cd, it finds it and mounts it:

Brasero just says that there is no available disk. When I insert the black cd, I see the popup telling me that there are 2 choices to handle the disk, one of them is k3b. Then k3b says that there are no cd/dvd writers found.

I read some fixes about adding me to the CDROM and DISK groups, but I don't have either.

Now, it won't eject either with the button or with the eject command:

It's an LG blu-ray burner. It is my primary boot device and I have used it to boot to and load many iso images.

Time for the old paperclip trick...

I would hate to have to load the same buggy beta system and have it crash again after the next update.

Now, my blu-ray drive is dead. I tried putting a blank dvd into my old burner and I get the same k3b error message.
