I have a Samsung NC-10, installed Win 7 on it and after about 3 months realised that the Intel Atom processor couldn't cope very well. I defected to linux but I can't get the damn thing to boot. I downloaded the iso of openSUSE 11.3 and opened it with Daemon Tools Lite. In my first attempt, I copied and pasted the image using windows explorer onto an 8GB flash drive. I got a "Disk Error" message. (I did change the boot order so that the USB HDD had priority). I got my dad in to help and he formatted the drive to FAT32 and used xcopy in CMD to put the iso image onto the disk. Then I got the "Remove disks or other media. Press any key to restart" message. I'm annoyed now because I have spent my evenings doing this for the best part of 4 days.
A few months ago, I got one of these and it is great for travel. I had to buy Norton for it and now the trial MS Office has expired which burns me. MS Windoze 7 Light is an adventure plus all the other bundled useless (to me) HP stuff.I use SUSE Linux 11.2 on my main mail/internet desktop and I like it a lot so I have been thinking about swapping the hard drive out of the HP Mini and loading 11.2.
Has anybody done this? I've searched but haven't turned up any threads about this. I'm a newbie so maybe I need to be pointed?Maybe there is a more suitable Linux distribution but I only know SUSE and am ok with it.My HP is a Mini 210-1000 if that is relevant.
Can Suse be installed on a netbook without a DVD drive? I am thinking of Sony VAIO W11S1 10" 1GB/160GB Netbook which has windows XP and Processor Intel - Atom "Processor N280 with Enhanced Intel SpeedStep" Technology
I am looking into buying a cheap netbook and saw the Datawind Ubi-Surfer (e.g., Datawind Ubi-Surfer Netbook | [URL]). It comes with a pre-installed Windows CE which I will be keen to erase as soon as possible.
The spec is low, as can be expected: 128Mb ram (1GB flash), no optical drive (which poses the question of how to install openSUSE), but 3xUSB and ethernet are included.
I do not intend to use it for any processing. It is to run java applications and play music from an external USB hard drive.
Does anyone know whether this little box can cope with openSUSE 11.2 (or 11.3)? and if so, how do I install it without an optical drive?
I want to install 11.3 on a usb flash stick on a netbook.the internal harddisk should be completely unaffected, meaning
- when the usb stick is plugged in, bios should boot 11.3 from the stick
- when the stick is not plugged in, bios should boot from the internal hard disk
I am unsure how the boot options in yast have to be set to achieve that.I changed the order of the harddisks to /dev/sdb (=the usb stick) being the first.I selected /dev/sdb3 (The root partition of the to-be-installed 11.3) as user defined root partition.do I have to select "start from MBR" and/or "start from root partition"? is there more to do to make the usb stick bootable?
I have an Acer Aspire One Netbook. Everytime I try to "burn" the live 11.2 GNOME CD to an USB drive (1GB) it fails on boot. I've tried unetbootin, the application from pendrivelinux.com as well. When it boots, it usually can't find the image. So I have to type in the name of the image by hand then press enter. I actually type the below in:
So it starts loading the image in text mode. I don't mind this, except it stops when it tries probing for the CD/DVD ROM.
rebootException failed to detect CD/DVD or USB drive
It just stops pass there. I've tried to add in the options acpi=off, but do I add it in before or after I enter in the image name? BTW, it doesn't boot in my laptop either.
I have created the installation-usb by the command #dd if=opensuse-11.3-Gnome-LiveCD1.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=4M;sync from my laptop with debian-lenny OS and was trying to install opensuse on my netbook (NO optical drive) with Intel Atom. The BIOS of the netbook showed the booting priority
USB Memory USB CD/DVD ROM Driver Hard Disk Drive Others.
After switching on the Netbook with the pendrive in the USB port the computer simply stopped proceeding further with the pendrive blinking on and on. So what shall I do?
I am trying to Install Open Suse 11.3 (burned as an ISO DVD) along with existing Win 2008 R2 OS. When I try to boot from the DVD it just logs in to Win2008 though boot from CD/DVD is enabled in the boot sequence. So i tried to mount the ISO and run from Windows ! BUT I get an error before installation starts telling that Win2008 R2 is not supported in open suse installer! Is there anything I can do to overcome this and install/retain both OS? In fact I am even trying to c hange my win2008 from R2 to Enterprise to see if I can overcome the problem!
I have a box already has openSuse 11 32bits installed. I want to replace it with openSuse 11 64 bits. When I insert the openSuse 11 64 bits CD, I got error message "this is a 32 bit computer. Can not use 64 bit software". so How do I wipe out the old OS (32 bits), and install new OS (64 bits)?
i have a backtrack install that i would like to keep while installing suse for an everyday OS; i start the install process but when it gets to partitioning the hard drive, it doesnt seem to recognize anything already being on there; it just gives me the setup for suse, ie: sda1 ext3 = OS sda2 or sda5 = swap. do i have to configure a partition scheme? i installed ubuntu on a desktop alongside windows very easily due to grub graphical install/partition; is there not a similar function for suse?
I have installed Suse on my Windows Vista 64bit machine a couple of times, but the last time I did it - after a disk change - presented some unanticipated problems. Prior to install, Windows Disk Management (whose output I was unable to paste into this question) showed that my disks were laid out as follows:
Disk 0 is a Seagate ATA drive, while Disk 1 is a Western Digital Ext HDD Usb Device. Looking back, I think I should have carved out a partition after M before installing Suse, but I was uncertain whether to make it a logical one or a primary, and in the past the installation has taken the 25 or so gig it needed from the last defined partition on disk 0. This time, however, it went after disk 1, and reformatted the entire drive, deleting about 300 gig of user data, including my system backup. What really suprised me is that it took up the entire drive: 2 gig for the swapfile, then a 20 gig partition, and all the rest for the third partition.
This is not what I would have expected. I especially would not have expected the installation to re-format user data. In any case, I did not want Suse on disk 1, so I reformatted the drive and then used my Partition Manager to rebuild the boot Mbr. So now, I am able to boot into windows, do not have Suse on my machine, but have lost critical data. My disks are now back to the way they were when I started (see above), except that drive F is now all free space, except for my latest backup. My question is how do I ensure, when I reinstall Suse, that it will choose disk0 for the installation and will not overlay any of the data that I have on that drive.
Gnome is falling apart and I've had a lot of nagging problems that I couldn't overcome.I'm thinking of wiping the OpenSuse partitions and doing a clean install without wiping the windows partition.I initially setup using the 11.0/XP dual boot FAQ in the How To forum.I have my Home directory backed up on an external HD. Might try KDE next go-round or KDE & Gnome as separate users. I have 11.2 i586 installation DVD.
I have just downloaded a mirror copy of SUse 11.2 and formatted my hard drive, so i can install the linux OP. But it seems like that it is not readable or better to say the boot from CD-rom does not work! Am i on the right track here? How do i go by installing a Linux on a fresh hard drive?
I built a new pc and want to have Suse again. Unfortunately Suse installation does not recognize my CD/DVD device. So I boot from DVD select installation and a few moments later there's a popup 'make sure cd number 1 is in your drive'. I also did try to load other kernel modules but nothing helps. The only drive which is always recognized is floppy drive.
Here are some details about my system: Asrock P55M Pro board, Intel P55 chipset, 2 SATA HDD's, IDE NEC 2510 DVD writer, BIOS is set to AHCI due to Windows.
I tried following: Use Suse DVD 11.0, 11.2, x86 or x64 Set BIOS to AHCI, IDE (compatible), IDE (enhanced) DVD writer NEC was used in my former pc and did install 11.0 without probs.
Installing from HDD is new to 11.2 thus I copied the DVD to a directory. During Installation I can select the correct partition but suse is not able to find repositories.(?)
I have installed windows 7 in my laptop. i have only c drive with a memory space of 284mb. now i like to install suse 11 in c drive itself without distrubing windows 7. after installing i should be able to go for either windows 7 or suse 11 easily. i must have the both. I had partitioned windows 7 in fat. i had not use ntfs.
Have burned a DVD of 11.4 64bit and am trying to install alongside Windows 7. The boot from the disk starts, I get a SUSE splash screen and initial menu. I check install source (F4) is set to CDROM. When I then select "install" the kernel loads, but then it goes wrong. Whatever I do I get "No repository found". It's almost as though, having loaded the kernel from the DVD, the installer can no longer see the disk.
I have suse 11.0 installed and now that 11.1 is out i would like to update. I have searched for this already and have found three ways of doing it:
zypper dup zypper up
in YAST view all packages and right click and click update all if update available. I have tried all these methods but i still seem to be running Suse 11.0 as it says in sysinfo:/ . How do i successfully update from 11.0 to 11.1?
I tried to download the Suse 11.2 DVD to do an install. When I went to do the install it failed cause it was corrupt.Not to big of deal, I had an older version of 10.2.Now that I have 10.2 installed, is there a way for me to upgrade this to 11.2 without downloading the Install DVD.I've been away from messing with Linux for a few months so I'm pretty darn rusty. I'll run Linux for awhile and when I get frustrated I'll move back to Windows. I'll mess with that for a few months and then go back to Linux...
I have installed 11.3 and really hashed it. I am getting no where and cannot find my way around. I tried to install as a partition with Ubuntu and Windows 7. Result. I have lost Both Ubuntu and windows with SUSE 11.3 installed and with YAST2 (as superuser) I cannot install belkin to get an internet connection, cannot instal Ubuntu or any thing else. I get the following;
[/media/Ubuntu 9.10 i386/wubi.exe] End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the latter case the centraldirectory and zipfile cannot be found on the last disk(s) of this archive. zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of the /media/Ubuntu 9.10 i386/wubi.exe or /media/Ubuntu 9.10 i386/wubi.exe.zip, and cannot find /media/Ubuntu 9.10 i386/wubi.exe.ZIP, period
I think I have not only installed this incorrectly but I have something I don't fully understand.
I would like to reinstall Ubuntu and then if I cannot get on with SUSE
I am setting up a PDC using suse 10.1 but I get the error(failed to modify entry:
