Ubuntu Installation :: Acer Aspire 5050 Operating System Not Found Error?

Jan 7, 2010

I just purchased an Acer Aspire 5050, and was trying to install Ubuntu on it for my mother. (No, I am not forcing it on her, she actually asked for it.) I burned a CD and put it in the drive, and it said Operating System not found. So I went into the BIOS and told it to boot nothing but the optical drive. Same error. I burned another disk with the same computer, and then another computer. Same error. (Hereafter referred to as "nothing")

So I went and purchased a 4GB flash drive from micro center. Converted my iso to img and DDed from my Mac, then set the BIOS to boot it. The BIOS recognizes the disk, but won't boot from it, giving the same error. So I thought: Fine, I guess I can't get _nix to boot, how about Windows 7? Put the disk in that I used to install on my laptop, genuine Windows 7 disk, nothing. I tried the Vista disk that came with the computer, also nothing.

Any ideas on how to install ANY operating system on this machine? I get absolutely no POST errors. I turned off Quiet Boot and looked, no errors there either. I would be fine installing any _nix based, it doesn't have to be an easy install. I can provide more information as needed, not a problem. I can't think of any more useful information at the moment.

Ubuntu Networking :: Acer Aspire 5050's Wifi Not Work?

Feb 5, 2011

Fresh install Ubuntu 10.10 on Acer Aspire 5050 with new hard drive. I struggled to turn the Wifi's button turn on but led light always on. It does not detect wifi driver. I installed ndiswrapper to get Acer's Winxp driver: netathr.inf by Windows Wireless Drivers from Ubuntu Software download. It's same thing as ndiswrapper.

Debian Installation :: "GRUB Read Error Operating System Not Found" In Old Hardware

Apr 1, 2011

I am trying to install debian 6.0.1a in an old COMPAQ 1255 (amd-k6, 160 MB ram, 4.3 Gbyte AT33.33 MB/s Cyl 6568 Heads 6 bytes per sector 512 HardDisk). I am using the netinstall CD_ROM , I just want the base system (the last option in the list you are presented) I got installed debian 5.0.8 , base package plus fluxbox plus a light browser plus a light pdfviewer, and I got really surprised what an useful system I got from such and old hardware.

With 6.0.1a everything goes well during the install process, the net is recognized, also the disk, formatting an partitions are created, apt-get configured, repositories contacted, etc. I only select base system (may be I am confused with the name, it is the last option in the list), and I select the install using the whole hard disk (i also tryed the install using a separated home partition but I had the same problem). I am installing the system in spanish, using latinamerican keyboard layout.

the installer then asks to take away the CD-ROM, I do, I reboot and then I got "GRUB Read Error Operating System not found". Just before the message, the machine search the floppy. If I press a key, I got the same behaviour, noise in the floppy, error message.

I can boot the CD_ROM in rescue mode, and I can select /dev/hda1 and get a console. i can do ls and cd and navigate the tree. It looks like everything is there, the /etc, the /home, all of the directories. if I do fdisk /dev/hda i got a warning because dos compatible mode is deprecated with option p of fdisk i got:

15 heads, 63 sectors/track 8944 cylinders. (different of the specifications?)
device boot Id system
/dev/hda1 * 83 Linux

[code].....

i can do less grub.cfg, and I got lot of information. I think this part could be relevant to the problem

insmod part_msdos
insmod ext2
set root='(hd0,msdos1)'
search --no-floppy --fs-uuid

Debian :: Hosting Server - Operating System Not Found Error

Feb 19, 2015

I will have a hosting server installed with debian 7.5 and has the following error: "operating system not found".

I've done everything I could. Reinstall grub and I let it install fine and no errors, but does not booting, among the iso "boot-repair-disk-32bit.iso" and repair, all good, but not booting.

The system has a Raid 5 disks with one volume and two partitions, including a livecd ubuntu, and I see perfectly partitions have no problems, checked. I go with the "Super Grub Disk" (iso) and let me enter the system out there, but they do not enter the iso, not start me. All isos the'm putting on a flash memory to boot.

Ubuntu Networking :: Acer Aspire One 1551: Wi-fi Device Not Found

Oct 31, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire One 1551 netbook. After I installed Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook Remix (my first Ubuntu, though), I discovered that wi-fi device isn't being recognized - ifconfig says that I only have ethernet device present.Somehow rfkill list indicates, that acer-wireless is always blocked. How to unblock it? rfkill unblock 0 doesn't resolve the issue - device is still blocked.somehow 'Fn+WiFi' combination on keyboard activates/deactivates Bluetooth instead of WiFi. Can I alter the behavior of the combination to turn on/off wireless networking? I googled for a while but fruitlessly. Is it a known problem? Is there a workaround for it already? Is there any additional information (clues) I can provide to speedup the process a bit?

This is what lspci returned:

Code:

00:00.0 Host bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] RS780 Host Bridge Alternate
00:01.0 PCI bridge: Acer Incorporated [ALI] Device 9602
00:04.0 PCI bridge: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] RS780 PCI to PCI bridge (PCIE port 0)

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 - Operating System Not Found

Apr 2, 2010

I am trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on an old IBM T21 laptop. It starts very happily, and I am able to partition the disk & copy the files to the HDD. However, when it loads the desktop there is an icon for the CD drive (and install disk). Everything appears to be fine, but I don't see any confirmation of the installation being completed. The CD drive does not open when the button is pressed. When I restart the laptop, I get the message 'operating system not found'. Starting the machine using the CD works fine. The disk shows that the partitions have been created, and I am told that Ubuntu 9.10 is installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Operating System Not Found?

Jun 2, 2010

I formatted my 2nd hard drive(IDE) inside of windows. So I had a clean 80 GIG HDD. I downloaded the wubi installer and allowed it to have 30 GIGs of the newly formatted hard drive. I restarted it and it just used my 250GIG SATA drive. I then restarted and pressed esc. to make it use the 80 GIG and it said operating system not found. I then deleted it and tried again. Same result. I then reformatted it marked it as active and installed Ubuntu again and it did boot the 80 but it said the NTLDR is missing.

CentOS 5 :: New Installation - No Operating System Found?

Jan 12, 2010

I'm new at Centos, although I am familiar with Redhat.I have a laptop that has Windows XP installed on it, and I want this to run Centos 5.3 instead.I read some tutorials online, where I found the download "CentOS-5.3-i386-LiveCD". I burned this to a DVD-RW. When I put the disk in my drive and look my my D: Drive it reads: DVD RW Drive (D:) CentOS-5.3-i386-LiveCD.>I am burning with Nero 7 Essentials.I place this in the laptop disk drive, bring up the BIOS, set it to boot from CD, and when I boot it up I get the message "No Operating System Found".I also tried this from another computer, Windows Vista Home Premium, and it skipped the priority boot (which I set to CD) and went right to the hard disk, booting up to Vista like normal.I hope I'm just doing something wrong.. When I go into the DVD, I first of all see a folder labeled "LiveOS" - Then inside -> -osmin - IMG File - 12.0 KB-squashfs - IMG File - 677 MB

Debian Installation :: USB Install 'Operating System Not Found'

Jun 7, 2011

I've decided to move to Debian because I have noticed Ubuntu releases getting progressively more unstable.I am following the official Debian installation guide. Just did this with the Debian 6.0 Net install .iso: 4.3.1. Preparing a USB stick using a hybrid CD or DVD image. Debian CD and DVD images can now be written directly a USB stick, which is a very easy way to make a bootable USB stick. Simply choose a CD or DVD image that will fit on your USB stick. See Section 4.1,Official Debian GNU/Linux CD-ROM SetsŁ to get a CD or DVD image.

Alternatively, for very small USB sticks, only a few megabytes in size, you can download the mini.iso image from the netboot directory (at the location mentioned in Section 4.2.1,Where to Find Installation ImageŁ).The CD or DVD image you choose should be written directly to the USB stick, overwriting its current contents.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 On An Acer Aspire AM3920?

Jul 15, 2011

I've got an Acer Aspire AM3920 (Intel Core i5) Desktop PC. I want to upgrade my Ubuntu Maverick Meerkat to Natty Narwhal, but it just isn't working. I've tried to upgrade two times, both resulting in a crash while installing. When I try to install it from a Live CD, I'm getting a black screen and when I press a key in the purple screen of the Live CD and select nomodeset, it doesn't work either. So my question is: Is it possible to install/run Ubuntu 11.04 on this PC?

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Install 10.10 On Acer Aspire

Mar 3, 2011

I have been attempting to install Ubuntu 10.10 on my Acer Aspire One for a few days now. Its current OS is Win7 Starter, if that even matters.

-I made a USB drive and Ubuntu boots and runs just fine.

-I hit the "install Ubuntu" icon and it has me choose my language, then I hit forward.

-It asks if I want to install updates and/or third party apps, I check the boxes and hit forward - and then it just sits there with the cursor spinning like its trying to do something, but it never does. The longest I have let it sit there was four hours, and still nothing happened.

**This is the step it always stops on. Could the problem be that I am trying to install the desktop version instead of the netbook version? I tried the netbook version and I just don't like it as much.

Ubuntu Installation :: Acer Aspire Blank Screen?

Jun 12, 2011

I'm working through this issue with my Acer Aspire 5336-2524. Blank screen, can't see anything after reboot.

(Display=Mobile Intel (R) 4 series express chipset family)

Enter;'msinfo32.exe' in the search programs and files box. Open it up after search finds it. You'll then be able to see BIOS version. Go to Acer support and update BIOS if needed. I needed to and so far the result has been that I'm not able to see the install of Ubuntu, butttt,cannot see it after going through all the start up, up to the point where the desktop page should be, then blank screen again.

I'll come back with results.I also am thinking about updating video driver too. (Tried but said it was up to date)Additional (6-14-11@7:36PM) So far by updating BIOS I was able to view ubuntu long enough to install, but couldn't view fully loaded OS (as in couldn't see desktop). As mentioned by foresthill, plugging an external monitor into the laptop allows me to see everything on the external monitor. Ahhh, sweet progress! Waiting for reply from foresthill about exactly what they did in grub for a permanent fix.Additional Two: FYI: Xubuntu 10.10 runs great on the laptop. But no wifi (I cannot remember if I updated and ran across broadcom driver install as 10.04.2 did)

Finial Update: I Installed ubuntu 10.04.2, which had no problems with screen, couldn't use wireless until I update and then a note poped up about broadcom driver which I allowed to install, now I have a fully functional ubuntu. Someone recommended using "LTS" versions for initial install, then go from there if you want to try different versions. I'll wait for the LTS before messing around, just glad to finally get a fully functioning ubuntu!

General :: Acer Aspire One D255e - N57 And Ubuntu Installation?

Jun 5, 2011

The acer netbook D255e - N57 comes with a factory installed linux OS but Acer reps seem unable to fully instal Ubuntu 10.1 or 10.04. Even linux lite lacked the drivers to run several things. Is it possible to do this??? If it can be fully installed I will definitely go for a new cyber life with linux but if not I may have to remain a thrall to bill gates and go for a Eee PC netbook instead.

General :: Ubuntu 10.10 Installation On Acer Aspire 3000?

Mar 12, 2011

I installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a Laptop Acer Aspire 3000 everything works perfect... excluding.... the Wireless Networks.

1. I cannot check marked Enable Wireless
2. Wireless Network disabled

The driver is installed when I installed Ubuntu 10.10 it asked me to install this. Is not a problem of driver I think. It is a Broadcom Corporation BCM4312

I found out the following:
1. I tried rfkill unblock all with negative results
2. rfkill list phy0: Wireless LAN, Soft blocked: no, Hard blocked: yes
3. look in the file system: NetworkingEnabled=true, WirelessEnabled=false, WWANEnabled=true

Is this really not supported by Ubuntu ?? username: melfrimarlyne e-mail: ferris@sowerseed.aw

Ubuntu :: No Operating System Found?

Sep 2, 2010

I got a new laptop today and the first thing I did was to install Ubuntu as a dual boot with Windows 7. Everything seemed to work the first time I loaded Ubuntu after installation, and Windows also seemed to work. Then, Windows Maintenance said there was possible disk corruption, so I restarted the computer and now I get this error when trying to load. After reading around about similar problems I think it might be a problem with the grub bootloader. It is 64-bit if that makes a difference.

Fedora Installation :: F10 + RAID 1 / Error Loading Operating System?

Jan 13, 2009

I have a fancy new Quad Core Xeon machine here that I'm trying to install F10 x64 on. The installation went fine. When it reboots the first time, though, I get the dreaded Error Loading OS.

So I dug up my bookmark of the awesome Grub HOWTO here and followed the steps to install Grub manually. Alas, I get the same result after installing it. Even tried doing a makeactive (hd0) just in case, but no luck.

I did more searching and searched for "raid install" but didn't find anything helpful. So here I am... hoping somebody has some insight.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Hybernate On Acer Aspire 5730z

Feb 27, 2010

When trying to hybernate the system tries to prepare to hybernation but when it is going to complete the operations it does not hybernate but finally suspends.

note that it is not exactly the same as choosing to suspend. In fact, it seems to me that when choosing to hybernate the system is unable to do it and consequently it chooses "at least" to suspend.

Ubuntu Installation :: Acer Aspire 5610 Random Shut-off

Apr 22, 2010

I have an Acer Aspire 5610 and since installing Ubuntu 9.10, the computer tends to shutdown by itself while I'm using it. Does this happen to anyone else? I would like to know what's causing this so I can either fix/solve it. I never had this problem on Ubuntu 9.04, 8.10 or 8.04. Checking the system log file viewer hasn't given me any clues to what's causing this. I just know the issue started when I installed 9.10.

Ubuntu Installation :: Flashing Bios In Acer Aspire 5720?

Jul 8, 2011

flashing the BIOS in my Acer Aspire 5720z. Issue is that fan won't switch on since update to Natty and so laptop overheats and shuts down. I know the risks and I'm pretty sure these issues are BIOS related so I am wanting to do it. The file from Acer is BIOS_v1.45.exe file and can be further extracted. Files are InsydeFlash.exe, iscflash.dll, iscflash.sys, platform.ini, CL50145A.fd, iscflashx64.sys. I have tried a few different methods and the closest I have come is creating a Dos Boot Disc with .exe file on it (although during creating it said there was no more space for .exe file but seemed to work ok)I can then boot into dos and find .exe file but it says file cannot be executed in DOS.
