Ubuntu Installation :: The Installer Encountered An Unrecoverable Error And Will Now Reboot?

Jul 26, 2010

I seldom mess with Wubi because I prefer a true dual-boot but due to a recent reply in the following bug report I thought it might benefit Colin Watson to have a first hand source of the problem:[URL]Then "bcbc" replied in post #273 and shortly after the thread was closed Now, I've had precious little time to do much testing and such lately due to an overdue remodel that was needed due to a kitchen fire over two years ago, and weather related problems have just nailed me big time to-boot, so I'm sorry if I seem more scatter brained than usual, but such is life.

Anyway, I did as "bcbc" suggested but it appears that Verbose Mode is no longer supported in 10.04 Wubi I do not currently have a working camera to take a shot of the options provided if hitting Esc after the initial install but it just drops me to a grub> prompt.I've tried disabling every bit of the Win XP security, defragging, reducing and increasing the default size of the Wubi install, etc, etc, etc!Any Wubi experts out there?I'd like to test for regression regarding those grub2 updates but I can't unless I can install 10.04 Wubi on this test machine Also, I can't currently network more than one computer, so ssh is just not possible. I have no room! The moral of that story is to NEVER live in a home while you're remodeling

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Encountered An Unrecoverable Error

May 27, 2011

I'm a first time user of xubuntu or any other linux derivative operating system and I was wondering if I could get some assistance on installing xubuntu 11.04 on my old laptop. When I downloaded the iso and burned it into a DVD+R, I inserted it into the machine and let it ran. It started well and I checked the disc's integrity before continuing with the installation and it passed that. Now, as I enter the installation screen, I select my language then click forward but the installer freezes for a few minutes and later disappears only to be replaced with an error message, "The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again." and it does as it says and boots into a demo mode. I try installing again through the "Install Xubuntu.." link on the desktop but it follows the same problem.

My laptop's specifications are as follows:
ACER TRAVELMATE 290
256 RAM (240 usable)
Intel Pentium M processor 1500 MHz 599 MHz
Video card: 64 MB internal Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME Graphics Controller
Sound card: Realtek AC97 Audio

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 64bit Installation Fails - Installer Encountered An Unrecoverable Error

Apr 23, 2010

I tried to install 64bit 10.04 Release Candidate but it fails every time. I have been using 64bit 9.10 Karmic on this computer so it's suitable for installation.

I tried to install from USB stick and from CD but same error at the same point! It fails just befere it starts to ask your locations etc...

There must be something totally wrong on installer. Checksums are ok etc...

Errors seen with CD and USB stick installation: Pop up: "Istalltion failed The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again."

On command line I can see following error message on CD:

Ubuntu Installation :: Installation Failed 10.04 - Installed Encountered An Unrecoverable Error?

Aug 4, 2010

I am trying to install 10.04 32bit onto a new 1.5TB harddrive. I had previously installed 10.04 64bit on an old drive in the same nmachine. I partitioned and formatted the new drive using the old system. I have a couple of windows partitions and restored Win2K images to them, 4 formated Ext3 partions for whever flavour of Linux appeals to me a swap and two huge NTFS Data (home) and work areas. I installed Grub on the new drive, it also has its own partition for boot config files. The old drive has now gone.

Grub2 boots OK and gives me option for all the OS's even the one that are gone, thats OK I can fix that later with grub-update. Win2K boots fine and I see my NTFS partitions.

Now I boot from the Live i386 CD and chosse to install Ubuntu. The only thing that not allowed to default is where to install. Specify partition manually, Choose a spare 20GB Ext3 and the swap is already there too. I let it reformat to Ext3 and mount as /. (In Advanced I let the install boot loader default to ticked on /dev/sda )

The install goes OK until I hit the pop-up "Installation Failed". The installed encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will be run etc etc..

I have tried this at least 10 times no. I downloaded and cut a new CD even though the old one worked fine on another box. Tried unticking the boot loader. Disable the floppy, removed the floppy.

I am relatively new to Ubuntu. Where do I look for the cause of the problem? I'll cut and paste the install log files in a moment.

Fedora Installation :: Error Sayings "Unrecoverable Proccesor Error Has Been Encountered"

Feb 7, 2011

I am trying to run Fedora 14 from Virtual PC 2007 on Windows XP. Every time I try to boot it, it flashes some code and shows a blue screen with the Fedora logo for a fraction of a second. It goes to an ms-dos type screen with a white background and a single "[" in black. Then I receive an error saying "An unrecoverable processor error has been encountered. The virtual machine will reset now." I have googled many times and have scavenged the Fedora site for a solution, yet I have not found one for Fedora 14.

Ubuntu Installation :: "encountered An Unrecoverable Error" / Getting A 'Crash Report' Notification On Panel?

May 23, 2010

I was intending to do a clean install of 10.04.I have downloaded and burned desktop-i386.iso.After booting from CD and selecting install from the menu, I get the splash screen for a few minutes, then black screen, then purple ubuntu screen, then the error message "the installer has encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run etc.....".

I am thinking this may be related to ACPI, because when i 'Try Ubuntu without installing' it loads ok but I get a 'Crash Report' notification on the panel.

If again 'Try Ubuntu without installing' with F6 option "ACPI=Off" it loads up with no problem.

Another thing I noticed is that when I load with ACPI=OFF, my external drives automount, but if i dont turn ACPI off, and get the Crash report notification the external drives do not automount.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Encountered Error Copying Files To HD

Jun 2, 2011

I have an Asus eee 1000. Was running Ubuntu 10.04 netbook remix quite happily for some months until recently when I had some problems and decided to reinstall. Unfortunately that is when my real problems began. I have tried using various CD.s with Ubuntu 10.04 desktop and Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook remix.

Both give the same error - The installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk: [Errno 5] Input/output error

This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. It may help to clean the CD/DVD, to burn the CD/DVD at a lower speed, to clean the CD/DVD drive lens (cleaning kits are often available from electronics suppliers), to check whether the hard disk is old and in need of replacement, or to move the system to a cooler environment.

I tried using an SD card to install - that also gave errors. I tried installing Windows as much as I hate it and, annoyingly, that installed without any problems whatsoever. Then I tried using the Alternate Install disc. That gave me a different error - did everything and apparently installed a "basic" system but failed to install software. Struggled to find an answer to that. How I can get Ubuntu 10.04 back on my netbook. As it stands at the moment I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that I will have to install Windows or buy a new netbook - this seems preposterous!

I have seen that many people have this error and so it seems like some sort of bug. The only clue I had is that I did succeed in installing Ubuntu on my second 32 GB SD (the netbook has two (an 8 GB and a 32 GB). Unfortunately this SD appears much slower than the first so I erased it and went back to trying to get it on the 8 GB as before. Now it won't install on either - gives the same error. I do not believe that both my SD.s can be faulty and so I can only assume that somehow they both need erasing or formatting or something before I can reinstall.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 - Installer Encountered An Error Copying Files To The Hard Disk

Dec 2, 2010

Each time, different methods, I get this about 3/4 of the way through:

The installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk:

[Errno 5] Input/output error

This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. It may help to clean the CD/DVD, to burn the CD/DVD at a lower speed, to clean the CD/DVD drive lens (cleaning kits are often available from electronics suppliers), to check whether the hard disk is old and in need of replacement, or to move the system to a cooler environment.

The only possibility of those is the CD being bad. But I've used it before, recently, and it was fine. I will burn another one from my other computer and try, but it shouldn't be doing this.

Question: If I plan to only use Ubuntu on this computer (no dual boot) should I make the /,swap and /home partitions all Primary or some logical, or does it even matter?

Ubuntu :: Installer Encountered Error Copying Files To Hard Disk

Oct 18, 2010

I have about 170 Gigabyte free at the last of my hard. I have windows 7 and suse linux installed on the machine. When I try to install ubunto. I start to create the partitions manually because I want to add it as a third operating system on my PC. Anyway I create the 4 partitions /boot - / - /var - /home. Automatically it choose to install the boot on sda not sda 9 as the /boot was sda9. I click install.

It gives me this message "The installer encountered an error copying files to the hard disk:
[Errno 5] Input/output error

This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. It may help to clean the CD/DVD, to burn the CD/DVD at a lower speed, to clean the CD/DVD drive lens (cleaning kits are often available from electronics suppliers), to check whether the hard disk is old and in need of replacement, or to move the system to a cooler environment." I burn another cd and do the same ... the same problem.

I try to create the partitions at the end of the hard disk not the beginning although I am sure that there is no error in the hardware but the same message. Lastly I change the boot to be created in sda 9. The same problem, when I do everything. I download Linux mint another operating system and do the same points. The same error message appeared by the way the boot is being damaged after restarting and I have to fix it from suse linux cd.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Encountered An Eror Copying Files To The Hard Disk

Jan 17, 2010

"The installer encountered an eror copying files to the hard disk: [Errno 30] Read-only file system

This is often due to a faulty CD/DVD disk or drive, or a faulty hard disk. ..."

Before I try changing CD drives, re-formatting the hard drive (again), or cleaning the CD drive, I must add that Xubuntu did open. I got rid of all traces of the previous operating system (WinME), and Xubuntu seems to work pretty well. The installation stopped at 41% of copying files. Should I aim for a finished installation or is this fine?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Live CD 'unrecoverable Error'

May 6, 2010

"The installer has encountered an unrecoverable error.A desktop session will now begin so you can investigate the problem or try installing again".It didn't get as far as giving me the option to check cd disc for defects, try without installing etc.9.04 and 9.10 installed fine on my two hard drives, so presumably this is not a hardware problem. During a desktop session I noticed a prompt to install proprietary drivers (graphics?). Could this be the problem? I don't have anywhere near the knowledge to 'investigate the problem'.

Ubuntu Installation :: Failed - Unrecoverable Error When Booting From The 10.04 Live CD - 10.04

Jun 28, 2010

I'm getting the following error when booting from the 10.04 live CD: Installation Failed. The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again.

I checked the CD for defects, and even tried re-downloading/burning to a new disc, but got the same problem. I tried booting in to the LIVE session then installing from the desktop but I still got the same error. I have had 9.10 running on here fine, and after running a Kubuntu 9.10 disc I had to hand to check it would work, that installed fine (hence the auto-partitions you will see in my info dump below). Here is some information about my system, let me know if I've missed anything. I've also included a copy of the syslog below.

Ubuntu :: Installation On Xp Error Message That Says:" Unbuntu Installer : And Error Occurred: Coercing To Unicode?

Nov 24, 2010

I'm trying to install ubuntu 10.10 on xp,but, after waiting around 2 hours per instalation I received a error message that says:" unbuntu installer : and error occurred: coercing to unicode: need string or buffer, none Type found. for more information see log file C:1customerlocals-1 empwubi-10.10-rev197.109. I tried on one particion make just for it then I even tried on xp on C: I even put it on a pendrive but my bios is old and do not provide for usb booting. The other thing I have to try is making a boot cd but for one reason or the other , my recorder do not want to recornized my cds- rw and right now I do not have any regular blank cds . That will be my next step. Note: Ubuntu appears installed on the the control panel "add or removed programs" but not in "all programs" list. I'm a novice on this so maybe the answer was posted but I couldn't find it. Looking ahead to try it and be part of the linux team.

Software :: Unrecoverable Fatal Error - Cannot Open File List

This morning when attempting to upgrade (aptitude update; followed by aptitude safe-upgrade) my system I started receiving the following error:

It doesn't seem to matter what repository I use or what particular package that I attempt to upgrade (all or just a single package). (In particular, apache2-doc is not even a package being upgraded, although it is installed on the system.) I have rebooted, run apt-get clean, run apt-get check, etc. to no avail. I am running a standard Debian (5.0.2/Lenny) desktop PC and am not running any NFS processes, client or server.
