Ubuntu :: ISO Burned Cd Not HD Install - Blank - Doesn't Work
Aug 18, 2010
I have download Ubuntu 10.04 several times and burned on a number of different PC under Win XP with the same results. When using the Live Cd option it requests a login user name and password of which all I have tried do not work. This is a ISO burned to cd not a HD install. So. what is that password? blank blank does not work.
i had an nvidia geforce 6800 card in my pc and that just all of a sudden stopped working (the screen went blank) so i went to my onboard video and it works but no matter what video card i install, it doesn't work (still a black screen) and i know the cards work on other pc's but just not this one. i've tried different ati cards and nvidia cards with no luck. i've also wanted to disable my onboard card all together but my bios doesn't have that option for some reason. i also thought that it might be the slot but when i install the video card in the pc, the fan works so it's not that.
I was upgrade my PC's RAM to 4GiB on 32bit platform, the problem is when I set AGP appture size to 64 MiB suse was detect physical memory at 3.4 GiB but when I set AGP appture size to 32 MiB or lower physical memory was detected at 3.6 GiB but I can only boot with failsafe mode, desktop mode doesn't work and screen goes to blank and I want to use the whole 3.6 GiB.
What is the deal with Ubuntu and power states? "Suspend" and "Hibernate" don't do anything. Whether I invoke one manually, the most that happens is that my screen goes blank. The monitor does not go to standby, my hard drives don't spin down, and the machine doesn't go into standby. Whenever I try to start the "Power Management" applet (System->Preferences->Power Management), it seems to hang. Takes a long time - up to a couple of minutes - for a window to appear. I also just noticed that one of my HDD's seems to be running constantly, even though I'm not moving any files around. Not sure where to start straightening things out.
i downloaded version 9.10 and created installation cds with infrarecorder, iso recorder and an old version of nero. i could boot to the installation screen but that is how far i could go. selecting and pressing "install" would not start the installation. do i have a bad iso or i burned it the wrong way?
I'm trying to install fedora 10 via dvd without a lot of success. i'm doing this on an old hp 8765c computer. it has a sansung sd-612 dvd-rom player. the dvd's i burned would not boot. so, i checked the dvd. sha1sum. check verify dvd when burned. check boot on system where the dvd burned. check dvd verify when bootedc check ok, lets check the dvd player. From i can see on the web, this player had issues about not playing dvds. some relate to driver issue when upgrading me to xp. and, some refer to updating firmware. lots of post about the dvd player not playing dvds. None with a succinct solution.
Well, if anyone has a solution for updating the firmware for a samsung sd-623 dvd player, it would be helpful. For now, installing from the internal dvd player isn't going to work for hardware reasons. Plan B lets try installing from the dvd using a network attached dvd server. sing the net install cd. use linux askmethod, use url to point to the dvd. the image in retreived, select all the defautl options, format the drive, does the package selection, does the package dependencies, but errors on the retriving packages. puts up the download retry message. then show message about not being able to retreive the authcong-gkt... rpm. just let the net install go. i get to the nic configuration, it errors out. probably network manager issue about trying to set a static ip address.........
I burned a live c.d of debian 6 today, it works really great but there is no option to install it. I've done lots of installs off c.ds where it says " install" right at boot up, as on option. is there a way to install this?
I've got a multiboot system with Windozin the first drive and first partition like everyone recommends. I have several distro's and just let them install their bootloaders, but always on hd0 mbr. I installed Debian 5.0.1 this way and it wouldn't boot, so I got SGD to "fix" it, which it said was successful, but all I get is a partition doesn't exist when I try to boot. I put Debian on /dev/sdb3, I loaded Linux Rescueand mounted sdb3 and verified that its menu.lst had the right boot numbers (hd1,2). fdisk even showns /dev/sdb3 as boot as shown by the asterisk under the boot column. Should I do a complete reinstall of grub, maybe using one of the other distro's as the holder of grub? At one time they did all the grub launching as each addition was made
Windows crapped out on me (not surprisingly) and I am using Ubuntu to transfer all of my files to an external hard drive. However, when the computer loads the Ubuntu disk I get to a language selection menu, but my keyboard doesn't work. It won't let me make any sort of selection, and the 30 second timer eventually times out and my system just restarts and the process starts all over again.
I've tried plugging my keyboard in to all of the different USB ports on my computer, but still nothing. The strange thing is that the keyboard works just fine when I changed the BIOS settings to boot from the cd-rom... it just doesn't work when Ubuntu is ready to run..
I have a 904HA that I am taking to Argentina for my mother to use and video chat with me. It occurred to me though that since I am a total linux newbie, it would be hell for me to setup a PPPOE account as they limit their DSL usage. Last time I was there they used proprietary windows only software. So having said that,need to restore my EEEPC to windows.Unfortunately in the process of installing linux I broke the restore?I didn't delete the restore partition but now when I hit f9 or f10 etc, it doesn't bring up the restore partition.I remember I had a similar problem before and I solved it but I don't remember how.
As stated, NO USB functions, not at all, the light on the mouse is on, but it does not move on screen, the PS2 keyboard does not function either. Nothing that would allow you to install it, works at all. I am absolutely shocked not one single person on here has mentioned this.
The last time I tried OpenSuse was version 10, it installed without issue, I noted the installer as the nicest one in the Linux world I had seen to date, only to be utterly let down by this USB fumble.I have Legacy USB support, Legacy Keyboard and Legacy Mouse USB support on, that isn't the issue, and this didn't happen with 10 on the same system.
I have this weird problem because I upgraded to Lucid lynx beta, and my ATI drivers don't work anymore... no support yet I guess and because of the broken package it doesn't let me install skype what should I do? And by the way do you have any idea why when I accept to show or view webcams it cancels shortly before it shows.. Any ideas why?
Update manager pops up telling me there are new updates, but clicking on the 'Install Updates' button does nothing.However, if I click on Settings, then just close the settings dialog,it then says 'Starting Update Manager' and when that finished, the 'Install Updates' will work, but I have to do this every time I restart the computer.
I would like to have the opensuse 10.3 DVD for installing gcc. (I lost the original DVD and with opensuse 11 my laptop does not work) Do you know a webpage where I can download it? The official page doesn't work.
I recently installed debian on my ibook G4, but when I start up the computer, it doesn't boot into Xorg. When I tried to start Xorg, it says that it is not installed. How would I install it, and how would I start it? When I do the apt-get install xorg, it doesn't work. Right now I'm running ubuntu on it, but I really want just plain debian, as I really dont need all of the bells and whistles that Ubuntu offers. I just need something to do schoolwork on (I'm a highschool sophmore), and I don't want to use OS X for that as I like linux better (specifically debian and ubuntu).
I've patched my kernel to enable my IDE-mode SATA drivers (ata_piix.c), and everything works fine. But when I attempt to create a Driver Update Disk with this structure, it doesn't work (though the same format works for SLES11):
I've been trying to figure out how to run/install openSUSE from a usb stick for several days. I downloaded the 11.4 .iso from distrowatch & used the following command in Linux Mint to put it on the usb stick.
It gets to the loading screen and get stuck. It has a small bar going across, that never finishes. I've hit escape to try and get some info, but don't know what I'm looking for and it's too much to write down. I did notice there were several I/O errors. I did check the usb for defects and it returned ok, and the md5sum was correct.
I've also tried safe settings which takes me to a blueish/black screen and stays there. No ACPI starts to load and then drops to a shell.
how to get this accomplished? I've installed many Linux OS's and I've never had this much trouble.
ps. I"ve read the "please read" pre installation page on here, and things just don't make a whole lot of sense to me.
I used brasero to blank the cd. It ejected the cd. Few days later i inserted the cd to write something, but ubuntu doesn't detect it. I had to use windows to burn some files on the cd. Then ubuntu detected it. I started brasero and it asked me to erase cd before burning onto it. I accepted and brasero erased the disc and started burning (there was no problem between erasing and burning , cd was detectet all the time). Is there any way to detect a blank cd?
i installed ubuntu desktop 11.04 on my acer aspire one 751h and found that the wifi didnt work. the netbook remix was the same so i went through all the previous releases up until 184.108.40.206 which worked fine on the live cd. so i tried to install but the installer didnt see my main hard drives only the usb i was using to install. so i tried using wubi installer which only left me with this screen when i tried to load up ubuntu.
I have Fedora 11 installed on a system that initially had an ATI 1650 type card. I recently replaced it with a GeForce GT 220. I don't believe there was ever an xorg.conf generated or used with the ATI card. Initially, when I replaced cards and rebooted, I was able to start up KDE or GNOME but with only 2 very low resolutions available(the highest being 800x600). Next I ran Xorg -configure to generate an xorg.conf file. Everything I am seeing in this file seems to make sense. But now, when I startx all I get is a red error box being displayed by the CRT monitor with this message:
Signal Frequency is out of range FH 30.1 kHz FV 24 Hz Please Change Signal Timing
The only way I can get my X system back is to go into the xorg.conf file (in the Device Section) and change the driver to vesa. But I still only have 2 very low resolutions available.
I just installed Fedora 13 on a new computer and the timed login for gnome does not work unless you manually select it. This surprised me as I upgraded a separate computer to Fedora 13 and the timed login feature still correctly functions and does not require user interaction.
I know you can substitute the timed login with the automatic login and it will instantly login, but this provides no option to select another user. I have been unable to find any information why this feature no longer works and wanted to know if there is a new way or if anyone knows why the timed login feature was crippled.
I have one problem with taking screenshots during SUSE installation. I am using 10.2 version. Button PrtSc does not work and Terminal is not available during installation (at least I think it isnt)Do you have any idea how to do it?
whenever i'm in the process of compiling and installing a new kernel in ubuntu lucid lynx i get an error message when i get to the make bzimage part is there some sort of program that i needed to install first or is there an alternative to doing this.
I'm using 'Adobe Flash plug-in 10.3.183.4ubuntu0.11.04.1', installed from the package repos on kubuntu, and since the last update, it has broken all flash functionality in both rekonq and firefox.I have tried removing and reinstalling the package multiple times, both with and without the browsers open. Can anyone suggest a way to restoring functionality?
