Ubuntu Installation :: Verification Of The CD (after Burning) Could Not Verify "initrd.lz"
Jan 21, 2010
Just joined the forums as I was downloading Ubuntu Desktop 9.10 (32-bit) from [URL]
Upon burning the .iso to the CD using ImgBurn, the verification of the CD (after burning) could not verify "initrd.lz". I checked that the file was there (it was about 5KB) and continued anyway (probably not a good idea but I figured I could always "Check disk for defects")
After putting the disk in, everything started up great, I selected English and when I clicked on "Check disk for defects" the entire process froze and a multicolored bar of random pixels showed up. I rebooted and tried the "Install Ubuntu" and even the F6 Other Options (checking all the options, then clicking "Install Ubuntu"). I even tried "Test Memory".
Otherwise the menu screen works fine. All F1 through F6 work, the entire help documentation works, but no installer.
I'm sort of stuck now and could use some input since this is uncharted territory for me. The computer does have a version of Windows XP in who-knows-what condition (it won't start up). I don't care about any of the information on the drive and would be fine with wiping it out because that's what I originally planned to do.
When I compile a custom kernel with this command: make-kpkg --initrd kernel_image kernel_headers and then install the .deb, there's no initrd in /boot and I have to create it manually. I've thought that the --initrd option should take care about this, but somehow it doesn't.
It behaves like this for about two years at least (since I've compiled my first kernel). Of course, it's no big deal to create it manually, I was just wondering whether do I do anything wrong or whether should I fill a bug report..
when i was updating my ubuntu 10.04 using update manager i got the error"W.A error occurred during the signature verification.the post is not updated and teh previous index files are used .GPG error: http://deb.playonlinux.com lucid release.

I just bought a recently-released Toshiba CB35-B3340 Chromebook, and I'm trying to install Debian on it (I want to wipe out CrOS and give all harddrive space to Debian). However, I'm having problems booting from USB. When I press Ctrl+U at boot, the screen flashes back, the computer beeps, and I'm brought back to the same "OS Verification is Off" screen. If I press Ctrl+L to get to what is supposed to be the SeaBios screen, the computer beeps twice and nothing else happens.
I followed steps 1-4 and 8 of this guide: [URL] .... and I just downloaded the amd64 netinstall image from the Debian website and dd'd it to the USB stick.
I've tried two different USB sticks and successfully booted another computer from them, but neither work on the Chromebook. I've also tried both USB ports, since I've heard some Chromebooks can only boot from one, but to no avail.
I have looked into things like ChrUbuntu and crouton, but they look like they just set up a dual-boot or chroot system. I want neither of these, my goal being to have a normal Linux laptop at the end.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 on a computer that's already running Windows Vista. I used the Wubi installer and it seemed to go through the installation fine (using the desktop, amd64 iso file). After rebooting, I get the dual boot option. However, on Ubuntu start-up, I get a display with the message stating Verifying Installation Files. It seems to go through some verification, but then it gets stuck. I see a bunch of lines with the words "ubuntu ubiquity" with hexadecimal values and regular words. The last hexadecimal values to appear are: 7f2698c50d8e, 7f2698fca815; the last regular word is "_target".
If I quit out of the verification, I am able to get onto the desktop area, but a message appears stating a parted_server crash occured. Also, my wireless connection doesn't work, but I suspect I need to install a driver.
I just did a new install of Ubuntu 10.04 (64 bit) on a system with multiple older versions of Ubuntu already installed. There was a dpkg error during the install with no useful information provided, otherwise the install completed normally. When I rebooted, the old grub2 ran and presented my old boot menu. When I mounted the 10.04 partition to see what was there, I found that /boot/grub/ was empty and /boot/initrd.img was missing. The other boot files were present.
I am using grub4dos 0.44 but can't boot directly into Kubuntu. The bootup freezes at the step of reading the initrd. Can't copy 'n paste the exact bootup-message but it looks similar to this one, I found on another forum-thread:
Code: Filesystem type is fat, partition type 0x06 [Linux-bzImage, setup=0x1400, size=0xcff87] Unlike the guy who posted the two lines above, I installed Kubuntu on an ext3-partition (hd0,5), (which is /dev/sda6 in Ubuntu) and without an own bootloader, since I wanna use grub4dos instead of grub2. The installation is fresh - the initrd-file shouldn't be broken. My menu.lst looks like this:
I do not find any initramfs-188.8.131.52-112.fc13.i686.PAE.img in my /boot folder after I updated Fedora 13 after a fresh installation. The vmlinuz file is present in the /boot folder.he grub.conf file does not show any initrd entry too.
I just downloaded the "Fedora-11-i686-Live-KDE.iso" and "Fedora-11-i686-Live.iso". I want to check if the downloaded files correct or not. I can use a tool to get the md5 sum of the downloaded files. But I want to compare them with the original ones.
I want to verify that serial port libraries are installed in my system.I know that it is installed at /usr/local/lib. But I dont know what all files are to be present in there, so to ensure that the same is installed properly. Iam using suse 11.1.
I need to install Ubuntu on approximately 50-60 netbooks. None of them have CD drives, and I don't want to have to install them individually, walking around with a USB stick. I figured the fastest way to install on so many machines is to use a combination of apt-cacher (http://www.debuntu.org/how-to-set-up...ith-apt-cacher) and netbooting. I have successfully booted one machine to test, but as soon as the kernel comes up, support for the network interface is gone. Specifically, the "atl1c" module is not included on the netboot initrd image. Also, I would like to try to use preseeding, and I need to get that onto the initrd as well.
So, to summarize my question: How can I create a custom install kernel and initrd? I have a feeling it's related to the "debian-installer" category in the package repository, but I have not found any good documentation about doing this.
i tried to install f13 from live cd and failed. i have 2 questions. i do not understand how to setup partitions according to scottro's message. It says you need small ext3-formatted /boot partion and a ext4-formatted root partition. Does this configuration have to be setup before you boot into the live cd? If so, please tell me how to set this up. my pc is pentium d with 2 hard drives. The master hd is has xp, ubuntu8.04, and swap partitions. I would like to use one-half of the slave drive for f13.
Second question. I would like to be able to verify download of fedora-13-i686.iso. I downloaded it to my xp partition and installed Windows MD5summer. Where or how do i get the md5 file for this iso file?
I had to uninstall f10 from my system because it would lock up my system anywhere from 1 to 5 minutes into using it and noone could tell me why.
NOW, I put 9 back on my system and after it updates everything, it locks up again. it does give me the option of the new kernel and the original install's kernel and if I choose the original to boot with, I don't have any problems.
SO, is there any way to fix it, OR to exclude the kernel and initrd from being updated?
System: Ubuntu 10.10 i386 CDI followed the instructions at But I cannot upgrade the livecd using:# apt-get update# apt-get dist-upgrade --install-recommendsit was not possible with aptitude as wellhere's the output of the commands that I issued at the chrooted filesystem:
I just removed a proprietary (fglrx ) driver which didnt work out well.Now all my updates hanging on: Setting up initramfs-tools (0.98.1ubuntu6) ...update-initramfs: deferring update (trigger activated)Setting up linux-image-2.6.36-020636-generic (2.6.36-020636.201010210905) ...Running depmod.update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.36-020636-genericAnd I dont know how to solve it...besides a clean install.
My first post and am very new to Linux OS. I already have Win7. Now i want to try Ubuntu. So, i downloaded "ubuntu-10.10-desktop-i386.iso.torrent" from the Ubuntu site. When i tried to write the ISO file to the CD using Win7 burner first CD and also using Nero in the second CD.. Both the CD are not working.. It throwed some error while writing.. Am doing something wrong.. i am downloading the Ubuntu again using the torrent.
I plan to make multi boot linux DVD, with help of SarduCD software, so, I have one question. configured Linux ISO image is not as I would like, I would like to change appearance and to add some softwares, in that way I will not have to change and install it every time I use live DVD in the future. I have now already installed 4 linux in one DVD but evey time I use it, I must change and install softwares, now I want to install on DVD the newest version of Ubuntu and Kubuntu, beside puppy and some other distros, and my question is: how to edit K/Ubuntu ISO image with aim that I don't need to change anything anymore after I burn it on DVD?
I suppose I should unpack and edit ISO image (add softwares and change appearance) and after that pack it again in ISO image. Maybe it is easier to burn Ubuntu to CD, to change and install what I want, into Live CD, and then to extract such Ubuntu to ISO image, then it would be ready to burn it together with other distros into DVD?
I have installed vmlinuz and initrd.gz (squeeze) in /boot/newinstallation and added to Grub the lines:titleNova Instalaçãoroot(hd0,0)kernel/boot/newinstall/vmlinuzinitrd/newinstall/initrd.gzNevertheless, when I choose this option at the grub, it begins to start the kernel vmlinuz and thus restart the system. The installed Debian Lenny boots in a normal way.
I install fedora on my usb-hdd. Sometimes i boot it from real machine, sometimes i boot from virtual machine (kvm). When I boot from real machine, hdd driver is usb-storage, when i boot from virtual machine hdd drivers are ata_generic and pata_acpi.
Everytime i update kernel, mkinitrd only create initrd image contains only hdd driver current running, and I must recreate initrd manual with all preload hdd driver. How to config fedora to everytime update kernel, mkinitrd can make initrd image with all hdd driver I need?
I'm having issues burning the 64-bit ISO. I currently have 32-bit installed and wanted to have a fresh 64-bit build. The MD5 checks out OK. I tried burning it in Windows with Nero, in my 32-bit Ubuntu, at reduced speeds, and no dice. I had no issues burning the 32-bit ISO. The burn always bombs out on closing or finalizing the CD.
I have burned dvds with Divx for windows and likes it because they were compatible with most dvd players out there where .AVI is not. I need to find a GUI for Divx 6.1.1 or another application that will burn Divx
Fedora-15-i386-DVD.iso file, sha256sum is correct. Burning by k3b on a fedora14 system fails again and again at 98.4% of the burning. I downloaded again to another partition and the same happens again. The k3b-debug output:
I've downloaded the DVD version of Fedora 12 with a torrent so it shouldn't be corruped - checked the hash anyway and it wasn't - and I burnt it at a low speed and has my burning program verify that it did indeed burn what it was supposed to. I tested the disc for errors and every time it shows up that around the 70% mark that the DVD has an error.
