Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 - Loading VM / Error Reading Sector

Sep 1, 2011

I created a boot disc (USB drive) with Ubuntu 11.04 and tried to install it on my Gateway GT5012 desktop running Windows XP. It gets to the part where I can "Run Ubuntu from this USB," and I select it. The screen shows "loading vm/linuz..." or something like that, and then the entire screen turns into dots.

One time, when trying to boot from the drive, it brought up
"CHS: Error 0201 reading sector 1418005 (88/68/3)
EDD: Error 4200 reading sector 1418006"

I ran this same USB drive on another computer (also running XP), and it worked just fine, so I really have no idea what's going on. If it matters, the computer it worked on had Internet access, this one didn't. It says "Loading /casper/vmlinuz..." and then goes to the screen of flashing dots.

OpenSUSE Install :: Downgrade To 11.1 - Error Reading Sector

Jan 14, 2010

I was about to reinstall the opensuse 11.1 since 11.2 was giving me trouble and ran the 'check installation media' and it turned out every disc I burn gives me 'Error Reading Sector 1891680'. This CD-ROM is broken. Looks like there is a problem with installation. I already burned like 5 different DVDs.

Jul 12, 2011

I installed Fedora 15 on a primary partition and expected the install to create a partition boot sector, but it didn't. Did I do something wrong or is this not supported?

Ubuntu Installation :: Alternate Install (10.04 And 10.10 Alpha) LVM Boot?

Jun 19, 2010

Today I decided to replace my 9.04 install with 10.04. (I did this on a separate hard disk.) As I am a big fan of LVM I used the 'Alternate' install CD. Everything installed fine.

However, upon booting I observed two things: firstly there was no grub menu. No countdown timer, no menu. Just a flickering cursor. After 15 seconds or so I got a message telling me that:

Code:
/dev/mapper/bromine-root (My root partition.) does not exist and that it had given up waiting. Finding this kind of strange I tried the alpha of 10.10 --- same again. Hence I have two questions: firstly, where did the nice grub menu go; secondly, what is wrong with LVM and grub these days? At the initframfs prompt I am thrown to there are some LVM utilities and they appear to show my volumes.

Switching back to my old pair of hard disks and everything works as expected (i.e, the hardware is fine and supported by Linux.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot Sector Is Corrupt And WinXP Faces Reboot Loop After Trying To Install?

Sep 16, 2010

I tried to help my friend install Ubuntu 10.04 side-by-side with Windows XP on his Acer Aspire One netbook.Unfortunately, the installation process came to a standstill and it quit due to "unexpected errors". The second time I started the installation, I realized that the option for installing side by side was gone and that I could not mount the C: partition on Ubuntu. The error message is listed below:====================BEGIN ERROR MESSAGE======================Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 12: Failed to read last sector (299982847): Invalid argument

HINTS: Either the volume is a RAID/LDM but it wasn't setup yet,
or it was not setup correctly (e.g. by not using mdadm --build ...),
or a wrong device is tried to be mounted,

Ubuntu Installation :: Bootloader To Usb Hard Drive - Error "no Boot Sector On Usb Device"

Apr 8, 2011

I am trying to install Ubuntu to an external usb hard drive (WD Elements SE). I am also choosing to install the grub bootloader to this disk (/dev/sdb) because I do not want anything modified on the internal drive. The installation appears to go okay, but when I try to boot to the usb drive, I get the error, "no boot sector on usb device" and it immediately falls back to my interal drive. I have tried this installation with both 10.10 (amd64) and 11.04 (amd64). How can I fix this?

Software :: Corrupted Font After Reading The 1st Sector From An USB Drive Using Dd?

Mar 18, 2010

I wanted to check the first sector of my USB stick, and so I issued:dd -if=/dev/sda -bs=1024 -count=1It showed me all the weird characters from the data, then after it executed my bash prompt became corrupted with the same kind of characters! Also, everything I typed was like that. (see the picture)Luckly, it was just that tty that became like that.How can I fix the fonts after something like that happens, and how to prevent it from happening whenever I use dd again?

Ubuntu :: Disk Formatted In Error - Boot Sector Repair

Nov 20, 2010

I was using the disk utility on Ubuntu 10.04 and wanted to make by 500GB external NTFS formatted USB drive into 1 x 50GB FAT32 and 1 x 450GB NTFS. I clicked the option that said format or create a partition and it basically wiped the whole thing in a split second leaving me with 500GB of seemingly empty space. Obviously the files are still there but I cannot boot the drive to view anything. I have downloaded testdisk, but don't know how to use it, but I am sure there is a relatively simple solution here. I am currently repairing the boot sector of the drive as Test Disk showed the drive as "no type" i.e. not FAT/NTFS/ext4 etc., but shows the correct amount of used space though, but I cannot view anything err go, I cannot use the undelete command as yet.

General :: After Writing Successfully A NAND Block Is This Reliable Ar Reading As A NOR Sector?

Apr 7, 2011

Am interested in using MT29F2G08AABWP NAND Flash memory for a new embedded design and I couldn�t find a clear specification regarding how reliable is the NAND flash vs. NOR for reading operation.If I program successfully a NAND block, read back and verify successfully the information and never erase or program that particular block again, can I assume that block will remain a good block and the information written there is safe for READING, roughly as safe as a NOR sector?

Fedora Installation :: Error, Saying I Had Bad Sector(s) The Error Told Me To Run Chkdsk /f /r In Windows, Then I Could Run Ntfsresize With -b, (in Linux)

Feb 22, 2009

I have the DVD installer of Fedora 10, i want to dual boot with windows vista. well i get up to the partitioning part of installation (in anconda) and it asks me how i want to partition it... i wanted to re size my partition and create the default format, so i keyd in 70GB and Okay. then it came up with an error, saying I had bad sector(s) The error told me to run chkdsk /f /r in windows, then i could run ntfsresize with -b, (in Linux) well i did all those steps, and shrunk /dev/sda1 to 70gb (/dev/sda2 is my recovery partition) i have a 140 gb hard drive, but can't find the unallocated space anywhere!

when i booted windows, it ran a chksdk, like it should, and in my computer it said that it had been shrunk (because the pie graph showed a capacity of around 70GB) When i go into windows disk management it says no unallocated space, just one big partition (and a 8gb recovery partition) this is the same with GParted on puppy linux, GParted on fedora 10 (live cd) says there is no drives I can mount or unmount and same error on partition logic... in EASUS partition manager i get told that there is no unallocated space, in the fedora installer there is only /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2. Does anybody know.. how to install fedora on this partition, or get rid of the partition and repartition it another way. when i click on the option to remove all linux partitions and create default format, it errors and says it cannot make another primary partition, then says there is no room for /boot. and i can not proceed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grow Boot Sector. Delete Swap Partition. Can't Boot Afterwards.

Mar 7, 2010

I'm running 9.10 off of a 4 GiB CF card. I keep running into space issues with updates, so I purchased an 8 GiB replacement card. I've cloned the 4 GiB card to a .IMG file using DD.I've then copied the 4 GiB image back to the 8 GiB card using the Ubuntu startup disk creator program. Once done, I'm able to properly boot off of the new 8 GiB clone.Unfortunately, the clone ends up with 3.67 GiB of unallocated space at the end *see attached). I tried deleting the "extended" partition that the swap is located at after booting from a Live CD and the system was unable to boot after this. I was thinking that I would delete the swap entirely and create a swap file after I merged the existing partitions, but I was unable to do this.

best way to do this (e.g. get one large 8 GiB partition with my old image on it)? I still have the original untouched 4 GiB card and also have an external CF drive if I need to redo the cloning. I've also used Clonezilla before, so perhaps there's a way to do this that allow me to grow the image as it's being cloned.

Ubuntu Installation :: Kubuntu 9.10 CD Has "Error Reading The Boot CD" On Acer X1800

Jan 6, 2010

The kubuntu 9.10 CD boots normally and present all the install options on Acer computer M3202 (AMD Athlon II X3 triple-core processor) and M3100 (AM3100-UD5200A. AMD Athlon64 x2) but not X1800 (AX1800-E9232. Intel Core2 Quad Processor Q8200). The "804200EF" number appears on the top left corner of the screen. The error screen with the red title "I/O error" and the message "Error reading the boot CD. Reboot". appear. Windows 7 is running ok on Acer X1800 so its hardware should be ok.

BTW, the System Rescue CD 1.3.4 does not work on Acer M3202 and X1800 but works correctly on M3100.

Fedora Installation :: 10 - WDE And Dual-Boot - Boot Sector Is Occupied By WDE Software (TrueCrypt)

May 17, 2009

I currently have XP installed on a NetBook (Samsung NC10), and would like to run Fedora on it. I'm currently looking at putting Fedora onto a flash memory card to test it works OK on the hardware, before installing it to the hard disk. The problem I've got is that the boot sector is occupied by WDE software (TrueCrypt). Will this pose a problem for dual-booting XP with Fedora, or will GRUB move the boot loader in the usual way?

Ubuntu Installation :: No Boot Sector - Hit F1 To Retry

May 11, 2010

I have a rather puzzling error. I recently purchased an usb external hard drive with the intent of installing Ubuntu on it. I have had great success with installing various linux flavors on usb thumb drives but I need a little larger space for engineering applications that I use. Anyway, I removed my laptop's internal hard drive and installed ubuntu 9.10 on a recently formated external hard drive. Everything worked fine at first. Upon restarting I get an error that says "no boot sector" and it asks to hit either f1 to retry. When I hit retry, Grub loads most of the time. Occasionally it does not work. Is Grub just not installing correctly? I searched for this error but I found nothing that directly applied.

Ubuntu Installation :: GParted Hangs Because Of Sector Size Error

Mar 22, 2010

Gparted won't let me install Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit. Every time it hangs at 47% and throws a sector size error, something like: doesn't support sector size 2048 and the code is HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL. My 1TB hard drive exists out of the following partitions:

100MB Windows 7 Reserved
900GB+ Windows 7
30GB EXT4
1MB unallocated space

Is there a workaround for this? I've tried installing Linux Mint and Ubuntu but both gave me the same error.

Ubuntu Installation :: Win7 Has Overwritten Boot Sector?

Apr 21, 2011

I have been running a dual boot system with Windows XP and Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit with the dual boot selected by Grub (placed y an Ubuntu install).

Recently I have installed Window 7 Home on a spare disc. My Bios allows me to select which disc to boot.

The Win7 installation has overwritten the boot sector on the WinXP/Ubuntu dic so that it is now not bootable.

I can sse all my Ubuntu files with a Live Linux Disc, so I can get all my files back.

Is there any easy way to re-install Grub or should I just do a clean install of Ubuntu, perhaps to a blank partition?

Debian Installation :: How To Copy USB Key Boot Sector To HD

Aug 20, 2010

I just installed squeeze from a usb key. Installation went flawlessly but now I need the usb key to boot. Nothing happens if I let the bios boot from the HD or if I force it to do so. When it boot up from the usb key, the HD is read and the boot up sequence continues. Grub seems to be installed in /boot/grub. I imagine that I have to copy the usb key boot sector to the HD but how?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Fails To Be Written In Boot Sector / What I Need To Do?

Nov 21, 2010

I am a complete noob at this and I need a hand. I was about to throw my computer out of the window when I decided to throw the windows out of the computer so to speak. So, I downloaded Ubuntu 10.10 and tried to install. I had a grub rescue after the installation (file system unknown), which I have seen discussed here. Being the noob that I am I decided to try 10.04 because it said it had full support. With this install I get a similar error during installation: grub cannot be installed in boot sector.

So, basically there is an issue with grub and the boot sector. I checked in my BIOS options to see if there was an option that prevented the writing of a boot sector or something, but I have not been able something like that. So, I am wondering if it is possible that Ubuntu does not really erase/format the selected disks or something, leaving any difficulty there.

Does anybody know? Or better yet: what exactly do I need to do a manual grub install?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.4 - Grub2 Kills Windows Boot Sector

Apr 30, 2011

Been away from linux for a few years thaught id come back and give it a try again. I have Win7 on sda and installed 11.4 Ubuntu on sdb. Grub2 Over wrote the boot sector for windows so windows wouldnt show in the boot menu. I repaired that after some research and then tried it again with 10.4 LTS version of Ubuntu. Same thing. Now I've fixed windows boot sector a second time and im ready for round 3. Any hints on how to get grub2 to boot both OS's? Ubuntu 10.4 is still on sdb I think I should just need to re-install grub2 But how to do it without Killing the windows boot sector?

Ubuntu Installation :: Set Alternate Boot Path Or Disk?

Feb 6, 2011

How can one create an alternate disk or boot path on a ubuntu server? I have a new server running 9.10 and have a full backup of an old server which had all the configuration and installed softwares, etc. Instead of trying to reinstall everything and configure it the way it was, I was thinking of adding another disk to the server, mount it and then hopefully be able to boot it from there. I don't have any LVM or mirroring setup but was hoping if I can specify a secondary boot path when the server boots up, if it fails I should be able to go back to the current one.

Debian Installation :: Found A Bug In The Installer \ Enough The Boot Sector Showed As Blank?

Jun 26, 2011

I had ubuntu studio installed ( for the record I hated it and every ubuntu flavor I have ever used. ) After backing off all the stuff from my home dir I started to install testing from a dvd. ( Is there a net install for testing? I couldn't find it) Don't ask me how it happened but some times I would have two grub graphical boot menus. One would chain to the other. I suspect that happened from one of the very friendly updates ubuntu did. Well when I tried to install testing I got a red screen telling me that grub wouldn't install so I tried lilo. Well it wouldn't install either. Back in the old days when I was a slackware guy installing from a stack of floppies I had a trick to wipe out any boot loaders or other stuff that gave me a problem. I would dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/<drive info such as hda with no partition number> .

This would write zeros over the drive and it would look like a new drive. So I did this trick. But still no joy ( this is a clue, dd was also thinking that the beginning of the drive was after the boot sector.). I suspected that the installer wasn't doing it's job right. So I got a PCLinuxOs disk and started that installer. The PCLinuOS installer has a cutesy visual bar that shows the partitions. Well sure enough the boot sector showed as blank. This was what the Debian installer had done. It left the boot sector blank and tried to install the boot loader right after it. This won't work. Now I consider when some version of Linux falls on it's face and another version does it right that the version that fell on it's face has a problem.

One might even call it a bug. But I don't know what to do about it. I don't think the problem is with grub or the installer itself. I think how the drive was looked at was faulty. That's why dd didn't blankout the boot sector. So what do I do to help get the Deb people to fix this? The more I think about it the more I think the problem is with udev ( what a surprise) I think this because I suspect dd looks to the info set out by udev to find the beginning of the drive.
