OpenSUSE Install :: Installation Stuck On Hard Drive Detection?

Feb 9, 2010

I downloaded x86-64 hybrid DVD and done everything according to instructions from Installation without CD - openSUSE.After booting from USB HDD, the first page took about 3 minutes to switch menu to the installation media option then afterwards the installation got stuck on Hard drive detection (probably 2 hours before i rebooted into windows 7). Installation scenario is:

Machine: Compaq presario C767TU
HDD: 320 GB with Windows 7 Ultimate on root partition, all other partitions NTFS
Free Space for Linux: 30 GB (Extended partition) currently having Mandriva 2010 with /swap 2GB, / 10GB,

Ubuntu :: External Hard Drive Now Stuck In Read-only Mode?

Jan 22, 2011

so here's my issue and what I think is causing it right now. I have a 1TB external usb hard drive that has worked perfectly, but recently I set it up a mount point for it in fstab so that I could create a SMB share on the drive so I could stream videos and pictures to my TV through my Wii using WiiMC. This now works perfectly, but now the hard drive has been set into read-only mode. When I use sudo to try to chmod the drive or the folders on it, it does nothing. When I right-click on the drive and check the permissions tab, it says the owner is root and all the options are greyed out.

I've read through several posts on similar topics to this, but none of them have been very helpful as they suggest using command line tools that I don't know how to use, so I'm hoping someone here can give me concise, step by step instructions of what to type in, or what settings to change in fstab to solve my little problem so I can start copying stuff back onto my drive. I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and the filesystem on the external drive is FAT32. Here's some more info you might need:

sudo fdisk -l:

Code:
Disk /dev/sda: 120.0 GB, 120034123776 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14593 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

Ubuntu Installation :: Stuck In Busybox After A Powerfailure During Install-no Internal CD Drive USB Boot?

May 8, 2010

I was having a hard time installing Xubuntu on a an old Japanese FMV Biblo LOOX S73A, with no internal drive. trying both from a USB stick and from a CD ( I think the USB's were USB 1's, not sure) but it was finally rolling with the CD---the bios lists USB booting- yet things happen, power shortage and the battery was out-

I'm stuck with a broken Xubuntu intall I have 3 grub options, regular, recovery mode and mem test I've tried to reinstall forcing the computer to boot from the CD in the bios, but get "no os found" If I let it boot from the hard drive, I get to Busybox/initramfs commands that I know nothing of. I just want to do a clean reinstall of the whle thing, but cannot find out how to do so. as mentioned this bios has an option to boot from USB CD ROM DRIVE, hard disk, or floppy

OpenSUSE Install :: Unplug Windows Hard Drive While OpenSUSE Installs?

Jun 14, 2010

I want to dual boot openSUSE 11.2 and Windows 7. I already have Windows 7 installed but I have encountered multiple issues in the past with trying to make dual boots. Usually when I install Linux, GRUB decides it wants to go into world domination mode, and "breaks" my Windows installation. I have reason to believe this is because the distros I use come with legacy GRUB, (v0.97) and for some odd reason it lacks commands such as "update-grub" etc. This means I cannot add Windows 7 to the boot menu without going into extreme complications, which have NEVER, I repeat NEVER succeeded. When I boot the Windows drive directly, I get some error about GRUB not finding the device, and it puts me into a grub rescue command line. Now I am no expert in this field at all, but wouldn't that mean that GRUB wrote itself to the MBR of...oh I don't know, ALL of my hard drives? I really want to install openSUSE 11.2, but from bad experience I am really put off as I know that it ships with legacy GRUB v0.97.I am also running Fedora 13 at the moment, I have quite an experimental dual boot running..been trying to get GRUB 2 for hours now, it is definitely there but no commands work, "upgrade-grub-from-legacy" and "update-grub" return with command not found. I've heard this is just a bug but can anybody confirm that there will definitely be a way for me to "fix" my windows installation after it gets "broken" by GRUB?Second idea, unplug my windows hard drive while openSUSE installs?

OpenSUSE Install :: Removing A Hard Drive?

Jan 22, 2010

I did an installation of SUSE 11.2 on a new SCSI hard drive. Keeping the old hard drive separate. I remembered there was some info on the old hard drive I wanted.

I added this to the system and mounted a partition. I then copied the data over. Then I umounted the partition rebooted the machine and removed the hard drive.

However the machine will now not boot without this hard drive even though its not mounted. Not sure what the error message im given means I think it could be trying to fchk it.

Do I need to do something more like remove /dev/sdd ?

I've added a 1TB hard drive as a second hard drive on my PC, mostly because my home partition is full of music and movies, but I am unsure of where to mount it (or what to mount it as). "Yast Partitioner" suggested /tmp /srv or /localI basically want a storage solution for media files which can be accessed by multiple users (including a windows PC using samba)

OpenSUSE Install :: How To Fix The Hard Drive To /dev/sdax

Mar 14, 2011

I've got a weird bug sinds I've updated to 11.4. On boot, the main hard drive isn't recognized as /dev/sda but it changes from time to time (probably according to other removable medias plugged in or not). It has been sdb, sde... but not sda anymore.

The trouble is that it boots and then it tries to find /dev/sda2 (the root partition). As it doesn't find it asks me sether he should take "SAMSUNG...whathever...-part2". Answering Yes solves the problem. But then, if I change in Grub the /dev/sde2, it still keeps changing of name. How could I have my hard drive back to /dev/sda2 ?

My /etc/fstab:

Code:

/dev/disk/by-id/ata-SAMSUNG_SP2004C_S07GJ1UYB03169-part1 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/disk/by-id/ata-SAMSUNG_SP2004C_S07GJ1UYB03169-part2 / ext4 acl,user_xattr 1 1
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

OpenSUSE Install :: Swap Hard-drive From Old Laptop Into The New One?

Dec 30, 2009

I got a new laptop, a Dell D400. I want to swap my hard-drive from my old laptop into the new one, and did so... but then got an error stating that my CPU didn't support PAE.

As far as I was aware I hadn't actually installed a kernel with PAE enabled [as I always pick a real-time kernel for audio work]: but then read that lots of the newer distibutions are enabling PAE by default [which is what's caused the problem].

Is there an easy way of disabling PAE in the existing kernel? Or would it be easier to downgrade to another version of OpenSUSE? I'm on 11.2.

OpenSUSE Install :: Move SUSE Hard Drive To New PC?

Feb 26, 2010

I came in this morning only to find that the Intel Core2 hyperthreading Dell machine is dead. It appears the processor is fried.

I have a new white-box X2 system that I will replace the dead Dell with. The X2 (AMD) does not have a hard-drive (HDD) so, I will simply put the SATA hard-drive into the PC.

Some of you may know how to do this, but I don't know where to begin after I get the Hard-drive in. (I know how to move a Windows configuration from one PC to another and handle it as it begins to blue screen (BSOD), but I don't have a clue with Linux)

This system was built with GRUB. At the very least, I expect the GRUB boot managet to surface on the display. But, what next....

I was testing an OpenSuse setup as a server. Nothing fancy and NO applications added. The only customization was the MB's LAN card and the display was set at 1024x768. I had 2 users, root and myself. What would you do? Is there some boot time options that I should follow?

OpenSUSE Install :: Formatting A External Hard Drive?

Jun 12, 2011

What I've done is partition my external hard drive to have 130g for my Windows info. Then putting the 90g towards Linux. I used a live cd on my home computer to format the 90g of Linux. I'm simply wanting something to learn more about from time to time that I can use on my home computer, laptop, fiance's computer, etc. So the formatting went successful. I have linux on the 90g of hard drive that I wanted it on. The problem is this. When I take the live cd out, when I remove my external hard drive from my computer. The home computer (which has Windows) won't boot. It comes up with a error 21. But now when I boot with the external hard drive I use, I make it to the boot menu and can boot from Windows.I need to be able to boot from Windows on this home computer, since my mother and grandparents use this computer quite a bit. I'm not always going to have my ext. hard drive plugged into this computer, so I need some help if you all know now.

Fedora Installation :: EIDE Hard Drive Recognized As Sda Hard Drive

May 1, 2010

Trying to install Fedora 12 using the 6 CDs. Trying to install on an older x86 box.Problem is that when detecting my hard drive, Fedora 12 recognizes it as a sda hard drive instead of hda hard drive. I have no SCSI connected to my computer what so ever. It's an old fashion PATA Western Digital hard drive.If I proceed with the install, Fedora 12 only installs 200MB of the OS from the first CD only. No options for additional software or anything.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 And Monitor Detection?

Jul 22, 2010

I opted to blow away my system (no did not save xorg.conf), and do a clean install of 11.3. Not a big deal to blow it away, nothing lost.

Dell Dimension C521, 3GB RAM, Athlon DualCore
OpenSuse 11.3 x64
Nvidia GeForce 6150LE (on mainboard)
Dell 2048FP 24" Monitor, connected via VGA

When doing the install, all appears to go well. I added the "nomodeset" option after the first boot to avoid the graphics issues. KDE comes up and is in 800x600 mode at 50hz. That is the best resolution it will show. All other options in the configure desktop applet are lower. This monitor was driven at 1900x1200 on the same config with 11.2.

[Code]...

In the nVidia-Settings applet (run as root), it shows the display as "CRT-0". 11.2 showed it as a Dell.

OpenSUSE Install :: Partition A Hard Drive With Essential Folders

Apr 17, 2010

I just wonder how to best partition a harddrive with essential folders.

My current installation has a layout like this.

The rest is in '/' integrated.

Does it make sense to give more folders a own partition? And if so, how much should you apply to each folder?

There are 2 users on the computer and there is nothing special or big installed.

I have currently 2 more harddrives which host music/picture & movie data's.

The reason for my question is just that i want to save my data in case of one folder failing.

OpenSUSE Install :: Adding Extracted ISO To Grub From Hard Drive?

Dec 7, 2010

When I first installed the openSUSE, I had to extract whole iso to sda4, because there was some kind of with CD (scratched or something like that), Now I want to add this part to grub, so that when I want to reinstall it, it will be ready for me. I tried doing this with yast, but could't figure out whole thing.

My current setup:
kernel image: (hd0,4)/boot/i386/vmlinuz-xen
initial ram disk : (hd0,4)/boot/initrd-xen
root-device:/dev/disk/by-id/ata-TOSHIBA_MK8032GAX_76HE0769T-part4

optional parameters: resume=/dev/disk/by-id/ata-TOSHIBA_MK8032GAX_76HE0769T-part4 splash=silent quiet showopts

This tries to do it, but gives error while trying to boot.

OpenSUSE Install :: Using An SSD But Keeping Home Directory On Hard Drive?

Jun 14, 2011

I have a dual boot windows XP/OpenSuse 11.3 system running from a hard drive. They are both 32 bit in spite of the fact that the system can run 64 bit.

I would like to upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit (the wife insists, not yet a Linux possibility) and OpenSuse 11.4 64 bit, but having the programme files on an SSD for faster loading, with my data files on the existing hard drive.

I'm happy with the notion of getting the SSD going as a dual boot system. With Windows, as I understand it, it can tell it fairly easily where to look for the "my documents" folder on the hard drive.

However, the Home directory in Linux is not quite the same. How (if it's possible) could I run the SSD but use my existing Home directory on the hard drive?

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Login After Replacing Hard Drive?

Jul 14, 2011

I am running OpenSuse 11.4 with Gnome3, with 2 hard drives. One is for the system and has three partitions - root, swap, and home. The second is only data storage. Last week I started getting popups stating I had a hard drive going bad. I checked SMART status in disk utility and had several bad sectors on the system drive, so I cloned the drive to a new one with Clonezilla. Here is where everything went kooky. When I booted the new disk I had a ton of errors at boot along the lines of unable to find a drive. Upon closer inspection I realized the the system located the drives by device id instead of the traditional /dev/sdx. So I started playing with grub settings but never could get it to stop looking for the old hdd. Next, I popped in my net install disc and found I could do an upgrade install which proceeded normally. When I rebooted, no more boot errors, but I get to the black screen with spinning cursor and it will not proceed any further, I even let it run overnight and when I woke up, spinning cursor. As for troubleshooting, I was able to CTRL+ALT+F2 to a console and log in as root successfully but not as a user. When I try to log in as a user, I enter my username, then password, the "have a lot of fun" flashes by quickly and I am returned to a login prompt. I logged in to the console as root and created a new user and tried logging in again, but same thing. I am able to do an ls -l on /home/mike and all my files are there and the listed permissions look ok. I am at a loss as to what to try next. My old hdd will still boot, I just pulled it to reduce risk af data loss. I have never used auto yast before but I always see the prompt for it during an install. Can I clone the system with auto yast on to a different hard drive. Does it strip the by-device-id from the image? Which logs should I check?

Ubuntu Installation :: Install New MBR On Second Hard Drive Without Having To Re-install Both OS's?

Jul 27, 2011

I have a setup with 3 hard drives. The first hard drive has windows 7 and is a solid state, for my fast computing needs. The second hard drive has another copy of windows 7 on one partition and Ubuntu 11.04 on another (and SWAP space).The third hard drive is just storage.Grub is installed on the first(SSD) hard drive, as well as the MBR (master boot record) for the two windows installs (select win7 in grub, then it lets me select which windows install to boot).Now I want to get rid of my solid state drive, and just run from the second hard drive with dual boot.How can I install a new MBR on the second hard drive without having to re-install both OS's?I've tried removing the first hard drive and using bootrec.exe to re-write the MBR and it will not work.I can install grub, and it boots to ubuntu but when I try windows 7 it says there is no MBR.

Debian Installation :: Net Install From Same Hard Drive To Be Installed On

Oct 24, 2015

I am trying to install Debian onto an IBM ThinkPad 240X. The 240X will only boot from either an internal IDE hard-drive, or an external floppy-drive. For now, I have decided to ignore the option of using the floppy drive. I have other computers to support the process, an IBM ThinkPad T43p (Pentium M) as well as my primary laptop, a ThinkPad X200s (Core2 Duo). I have tried installing the hard-drive to be used into the T43p, then booting the Debian NetInstall from a USB thumb-drive, installing as usual, then transferring the hard-drive into the 240X. This does not completely work; GRUB and LILO will load, but the computer freezes very early (almost immediately) in the boot process.

Please note, I am trying this on a CF card. The 240X has an IDE-CF adapter, and my X200s has a USB-CF reader.So, I want to try to load the actual Debian Net Install on the 240X. Ideally, it will happen something like this; I will partition the hard-drive into these 2 partitions:

sda1: the Debian Net Installer
sda2: an empty partition waiting to have Debian installed onto it URL...

but the part I do not understand is how to get GRUB or LILO installed onto the CF card. I am wary of running commands such as "grub-install" as I do not want to mess up my GRUB install on the computers this command would be run from. If I run a command such as this, I would want it to ingore everything about the computer it is being run from, and only modify files or install onto the CF card. I would not want it to acknowledge the computer it is being run from as far as available installs, architecture, etc.
