Debian Installation :: Installation Failed On Mobo Gigabyte G41M-ES2H?

Aug 1, 2010

explain the following issue I have with Debian IA 64:I tried on a PC (Mobo Gigabyte G41M-ES2H, core 2 duo, 4 GB RAM DDR2) the live CD of Debian Lenny IA64 and everything worked just fine, which was a very good thing because none of all other major ia64/i386 distros of Linux (Mandrake, ubuntu, fedora) did so. In a nutshell it seems that the IGP G41 chipset is the cause of these setup failure (Everything is OK when using a PCI-e graphic card that I need in another computer)rd as someone (viewtopic.php?=17&t=49186&p=282839&hilit=G41M+ES2H#p282839) successfully installed Lenny on a very similar mobo. To go to the point what I do not understand is when I launch the iso Cd to now install the same version of Debian, everything freezes at the very beginning of the boot and the screen goes blank.

Fedora Hardware :: Install Freezes After Disks Detections On Mobo Gigabyte G41M-ES2h

Mar 9, 2010

When I tried to run the fedora 12 disk setup (iso), instead of having the nice fedora logo I quickly get tetxt lines showing all my sata disks and USB card readers properly detected though... and the instal freezes. This PC is a mobo Gigabyte G41m-ES2h with 2x500 GB WD disk... Very basic config with a wolfdale 2.93 GHz + 4 GB DDR2 ram... I don't quite understand as Ubuntu 9.1 setup does the same thing whereas "superGRUB" launched from a CD detects my disks & partitions normally.

This fedora 12 disk is ok (fedora 12 installed on 2 other laptops in dual boot) and on the first satat disk there is a Vista. Really don't get it but isolinux has had sometimes issues with sata disks on some of my previous PCs.

Hardware :: Gigabyte MOBO Boot Sequence ?

Jan 25, 2011

I would like to know as to how to save a boot order sequence...In my desktop PC I have a gigabyte MOBO housing Pentium Dual Core processor...

Whenever I have to boot from an external USB , I have to press del at boot , go into CMOS features and change the Order of Booting 1-DVD 2 USB-FDD 3. USB-HDD 4. Local Hard Disk

The problem is that everytime I have to repeat the above to boot from USB...I am also confused between USB - HDD and USB - FDD...Some utils partition and use the USB like a HDD while it is not the case with FDD I guess

How do you freeze the boot order so that on inserting any USB / External HDD at boot , the system should give it the priority over local hard disk..

Also in Giga MOBO I noticed that there is no "generic USB" mentioned in BIOS...It lists the USB device by name say "Kingston Data Traveler " "Sandisk Micro" etc ....

What should I do to make the boot order permanent?

Debian Installation :: 8.1.0 Won't Boot From M5a97 Mobo After Install

Sep 27, 2015

I am a real debian noob. I may be too old for this (things have changed a bit since I first started hacking fortran in 1971), but will try one more time.I am editing this original post to clarify: my debian install will not boot to GUI. It will boot to a shell under the advanced option.I have tried loading debian 8.1.0 from DVD. The system will install, but will not boot after the install.On a regular reboot, the last command is fsck. Then it hangs.

On a recovery mode reboot, the last output is:[7.940682] FAT-fs (sdal) utf8 is not a recommended IO charset for FAT files (my handwriting is bad - may not be 100%). - then it will hang.The problem may well be the result of UEFI and the m5a97 R2.0 mobo I am using with my amd 8230E processor. I've been doing some research on UEFI and archlinux. It is a bit of a challenge for me.

I've managed to load ubuntu on this drive. I burned a debian 8.2.0 live DVD, but it will hang also. debian live will hang before it gets to a GUI. The debian live will run the GUI desktop environment with the amd64 fail safe option. When I install debian from the live DVD (the 1.4gb DVD, vs the regular 4.0 gb DVD), it will hang before it gets to the GUI.

Fedora Installation :: P5Q Pro Mobo - Cannot Find Sata Drive?

Mar 21, 2010

Somehow Fedora 12 does not find one of my Sata drives (Seagate Barracuda 500GB) on the motherboard (Asus P5Q pro). The drive is attached to SATA_E1, which is a Silicon Image Serial ATA RAID connector. The drive currently has Windows Vista 64-bit OS which has been working fine. Fedora install loads correctly without errors, but only shows my RAID system on SATA ports 1-6.


I have tried showing RAID as IDE in the BIOS, and setting it to compatible mode. Still does not detect.

I have tried setting the drives to ACPI mode in BIOS. No effect.


I'm installing the x86_64 version of Fedora 12. I have run the Debian i686 installer and it picks up this volume without issue.

Ubuntu Installation :: Possible To Replace Mobo / Chip Or RAM Without Reinstall?

Jul 28, 2011

I have 10.04 LTS installed onto an SSD and have a spinning disk for crud, and my brother wants to give me his old GA-PH67A-UD3 and 8GB of RAM if I buy an i7 2600 to put in it. The thing is, I'm happy with my GA-965P-DS3 with Q6600, so I don't actually need an upgrade. So, can I get away with replacing the mobo, chip, and RAM and putting the SSD in the equivalent SATA port on the new mobo (/dev/sda), and will it cope? Will the kernel detect a new board and chip and carry on accordingly? I'll have to remount my crud drive to the same mount point it expects, and if my user account as the same UID as the old system, I'm hoping that might cope, too. Of course, I might be suggesting complete evil, and if this was Windows, I wouldn't even dare think about it, but I have a sneaking suspicion that Linux might cope with this kind of change where Windows would fall over in a heap.

Ubuntu Installation :: ASUS P5P55D-E LX Mobo Can't Install 10.04 Lucid Lynx 32-bit

Oct 20, 2010

I just purchased a new PC with the following specs:

Intel Core i5-760
ASUS P5P55D-E LX (S1156 mobo)
Sapphire HD 5750 Vapor-X 1GB Video Card
Samsung 1TB HDD
Corsair DDR3 PC1333 Gaming RAM - 2x2GB
DVD: Samsung DVD burner (internal)

I have made several trials to install Lucid Lynx but all failed:

1. Installed Windows 7 64-bit, hdd formatted as NTFS and ext3, then trying to install Lucid Lynx 32-bit : failed.

2. Installed Windows XP 32-bit, hdd formatted as FAT32, then trying to install Lucid Lynx 32-bit : failed.

3. Trying to install Lucid Lynx 32-bit with a clean hdd formatted as FAT32: failed.

In all the scenarios above, I have tried using Ubuntu installers on CD, DVD, or USB. on CD and DVD, the process always stopped after the Ubuntu logo screen, not even reached the langauage selection screen. On USB, with Legacy set to On in the BIOS, it did run and started by the option screen where we get to choose booting from the usb, or booting from hdd, or memory test, etc., but after choosing the booting from usb (and then hdd also) option, the process also stopped after the Ubuntu logo screen. I have experience dual booting Windows XP with Lucid Lynx on an older system, so I'm not completely new in this. I'd like to know what actually went wrong?

Ubuntu Installation :: Doesn't Work With Gigabyte EP45-DQ6 Motherboard?

Dec 14, 2010

I want to start using Ubuntu again but I gave up ages ago trying to get it to work with my Gigabyte EP45-DQ6 motherboard.I cant run from disc and I can't install.If I try to run it just takes me to a black screen with blinking cursor and that's all it does.If I try to install, basically the same.I can't get anywhere doing anything, so where do I start?How can I get it working on my system?By the way, this is with the latest Ubuntu.No, it's not a corrupt download or burn. I tried to download and burn, didn't work.I ordered a free cd, it did the same.This is an issue that is NOT related to the disc or the download of Ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Configure Onboard Video - Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H ?

Jan 28, 2011

I just replaced my motherboard with a Gigabyte 890GPA-UD3H. I am happy to report that the OS (Ubuntu 10.04) was smart enough to boot up using the pre-existing software RAID 5 (four disks) and work fine with the new motherboard, CPU, and memory. However, since the new motherboard has a nice onboard display, I removed the PCIe graphics card (which was needed on the old board), and am now trying to configure the OS to use the "OnChipVGA."

This is what lshw produces

And here is what I get with startx:X.Org X Server 1.7.6

Ubuntu Networking :: Ethernet Installation - Could Not Get Realtek 8168 On Mother Board To Work On Gigabyte H55M-S2H Motherboard

Mar 5, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu 9.04
uname -r

Checked cable/network with 386Box running Ubuntu 8.04 all OK. Could not get Realtek 8168 on mother board to work on Gigabyte H55M-S2H motherboard. I tried to install r8168 driver but no luck ... so I bought another Linux compatible card which turned out to be a RTL8139c (eth1) and the driver I am using on this is card is 8139too.


My preference would be to get the motherboard ethernet working but perhaps the card may be easier to get working. Anyway after searching the net for ideas and trying different things I've just about given up. I have reinstalled Ubuntu today so eth0 is back to using the r8169 driver. I'm no expert so my attempts at following other recipies have so far failed. From what I have read the 8139too driver should have worked with the RTL8139C chip so I have run out of ideas. I must be doing something wrong.

Debian Installation :: HD Failed To Partition

Sep 27, 2015

I have now tried twice, with the same results, to install Debian 8.2.0 onto my hard drive. Each time it went through the installation as if everything was working. But, when it rebooted, it came up in grub rescue mode. When I do an "ls" command, it only shows the hard drive and no partition information. When I do an "ls (ho0,1)" it reports no such partition.

When is my installation failing? Why is it not partitioning the hard drive and loading the OS? Obviously it can write to the disk or else grub wouldn't come up at boot.

Debian Installation :: NTFS Mounting Failed

Nov 23, 2014

I am trying to install Debian in an old laptop. Of course, in this laptop there is windows installed and I want to respect it. My plan is to install Debian in a spare drive.Before installing Debian, I want to check what is inside each drive. In order to do that, I am trying to use the Debian installer CD. Then start an admin shell, mount the drives in read-only mode, and check their contents.

But when I run the command:
# mount -r -t ntfs /dev/sda3 /mnt/windows

I get the following response:

Debian Installation :: Failed In Network Initialization

Jan 20, 2010

I'm trying to install Debian 5.03 from the netinstall on a usb flash disk. When it gets to the network initialization step, it fails and cannot get an IP from DHCP. Manual configuration does not work either. Out of desperation I installed windows to see if the network device was broken (this is a new motherboard), however it works fine without drivers even. Invoking lspci shows that it is a Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Etherent Controller (revision ff)

Debian Installation :: Where To Look For When Install Process Failed

Mar 15, 2010

When I was trying to install debian stable in my laptop the process was freeze, I would like to know what was the problem, this is very important for me because the failed would be in a working server or on a project, so my questions are:

1. What are the places/files to look for errors? log files? dmesg? something else?
2. Are there some special commands or routines that can help in the analysis?

Debian Installation :: 6 Installer Failed In Scan Hd For An ISO

Feb 6, 2011

I'm trying to install stable Squeeze from HD "!! Scan hard drives for an installer ISO image. The quick scan for installer ISO images, which look only in common places, did not find an installer ISO image, but it may take a long time. Do full search for installer iSO image? [YEs} No kernel modules were found. This probably is due to a mismatch between the kernel Version available in the archive If you're installing from a mirror, you can work around this problem by choosing to install a different version of Debian. The install will probably fail to work if you continue without kernel modules"

Debian Installation :: Wheezy - Installer Failed On Grub

Nov 23, 2014

I am installing Whezzy and the installer failed to install grub on the MBR of /dev/sda

My disks are
- /dev/sda : the flash drive with the debian ISO
- /dev/sbd : a small SSD for the / partition (sdb1)
- /dev/sdc + /dev/sdd : a software RAID-1 array with LVM for /home, ...

Grub fails to install on /dev/sda which makes sense since this is the flash drive containing the Debian ISO so no MBR.

I already tried to run grub-update manually on /dev/sdb (with chroot /target grub-install --no-floppy --force "/dev/sdb" ).

It works but the system is not directly bootable. I had access to a second PC to read the grub documentation so was able to boot and to fix my system but this is annoying.

Is it normal to see my flash drive as /dev/sda? Could it be that my flash drive is incorrectly detected as a HD?

Is there a way to force the installer to install grub on /dev/sdb?

Debian Installation :: Failed Install On HP / Blinking Cursor

Apr 20, 2015

I've been tooling around in linux on and off since I discovered KNOPPIX 3.2. No linux distro has ever been a daily driver for me, though I wish sometimes it were.I've tried many distros over the past couple weeks via virtualBox on my mac and decided to install Debian on my laptop. I've tried multiple times and it has always failed; quite disappointing.

Laptop Specs;
HP Pavilion dv7 3169wm
64 bit AMD Turion II Ultra M620 2.50 GHz Dual-core

I started the install via the live ISO as the netinst & the DVD versions both failed, either by no suitable kernel or just flat out "installing base system failed". I've now found my computer to boot past the POST splash screen , and then to a black screen with a line cursor blinking with no input/output ability.To be clear, I did use uNetBootin to create the USB, and have successfully installed, and used multiple other distros (ubuntuMate, mint, peppermint, Arch, elementary) without issue, or at least nothing I couldn't fix.

How can I get past this and attempt to install Debian? I'd put my linux knowledge at a "beginner" stat, but I'm by no means daft about electronics and computers.

Debian Installation :: Failed USB Install - Can't Find CD Drive?

Nov 18, 2015

I just recently downloaded debian 8.2 live cd 64bit amd and wrote it to a usb stick with the universal usb installer from [URL] ..... The installer stops at the point of grabbing information from CD (right after choosing location) and since I have no dvd drive installed it spits an error out at me.

Now it seems to load the files right with the install icon from within the live mode but it gets cut off so I can't see about 1/3 the screens info. 4k monitor problems?

A bit of info, Installing on a Asus Maximus VIII Hero motherboard with ddr4, i7 6700k, win10 installed.

I'm rather new to UEFI bios options coming from a 2009/2010 x58 board, so I have a bit more reading to do.

Where to get working debian file that allows installation from the main initial boot menu.

Debian Installation :: Failed To Upgrade From Lenny To Squeeze

Feb 3, 2010

I have tried several times--unscuccessfully-- to upgrade to the testing branch. I change my apt sources to "squeeze". I get either "err" or "ign" on a lot of the sources when updating. I have seen several methods as to how to upgrade from stable to testing and none have worked so far. I have tried "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade" as well as using aptitude to do the same similar commands. What I find is the following:

* My kernel never gets upgraded at all.

* udev is broken and mice and keyboard do not work.

* Many packages are held back and not upgraded.

I do have a debian 5 image to re-install and try again but I am not finding it to be as easy as many debian people claim. Also, I did a fresh install of squeeze using the net-install image. When the install finished and I rebooted, the computer hung on boot up. It never seemed to read where the kernel was. It would boot up, the system would beep and then reboot never finding the kernel or boot block apparently. how to get squeeze on my box? It is a 1.2 Ghz computer with 512mb ram with the intel i810 southbridge chipset I believe.

Debian Installation :: Failed Wheezy To Jessie Upgrade (cannot Boot)

I upgraded from deb7 to deb8, but am no longer able to boot. After passing the grub boot menu, the following messages are displayed:

Select allLoading, please wait...
[    6.065713] systemd-fsck[148]: /dev/sda1: clean, 428644/1310720 files, 410616

The screen then clears and an underscore is displayed as the sole character at the top left position of the screen. The system hangs at this point. During installation, I rejected two changed files: /etc/init.d/bootlogd and /etc/libreoffice/sofficerc. For both, I opted to keep the installed version (the default choice of the installer) rather than replacing with the new version. The first might be related to the problem, although it seems to be responsible only for logging the boot process, and I would not expect this to compromise booting.

In case this information is useful, sda1 is mounted at /, sda2 is swap space, sda3 is extended, and sda5 is a logical partition mounted at /home.

I am able to boot into rescue mode, but other than that the system is not usable. Unfortunately, no useful error messages are given to aid in diagnosing the problem.

Debian Installation :: Network Autoconfig Failed Even With Ethernet Cable

Router works fine, debian refuses to work with it. I continued the install anyway but only have the first DVD so now I've got a useless base install that can't connect to the internet.

The fact that this installer has utterly failed where the others succeeded had drastically reduced my confidence in the debian team.
