Debian :: Samsung N310 Netbook -- Boot From USB Drive?

Nov 9, 2010

I recently bought a new Samsung netbook N310 which has windows xp home edition on it. My CPU is like this: Intel Atom CPU N270 1.6GHz. I now want to install Debian Lenny 5.06 with GUI, while keep the windows xp partition for later use.

how I can boot directly from a 2GB USB drive, instead of having to modify grub etc. Is there something in Debian that is equivalent to the Universal USB Installer in Ubuntu?

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Boot My N210 Samsung Netbook / Workaround This?

Nov 3, 2010

I bought this netbook yesterday & thought of installing ubuntu netbook 10.10 on it.

I booted with windows & started the install using WUBI.
The wubi setup was started but then after copying files it told that some error occurred.

I though that I will deal with it later and left the wubi installed.

Now, when I rebooted after sometime, I am thrown to the code...

My netbook also has Hyperspace installed that comes with netbook. I provided that in case it is caused because of that.
Now what do I do? I didnt do anything wrong and still ubuntu messed up my system

Ubuntu Installation :: Xp And - Netbook Dual Boot - Error - Windows Boot Failed

Jul 8, 2010

I have a netbook running Windows XP as standard. There is also a recovery partition which came from the factory.

In the past I installed Ubuntu (I think 9.something) from USB key and all worked fine. However my XP became corrupted and I needed to do a repair on it. After this, Ubuntu became removed from the boot select menu.

Since then, Ubuntu has become updated to 10.04, which I now cannot install.

The Live CD tells me there is a "file IO error" and simply stops installation at around 70%.

I did manage to get into Ubuntu from a Live USB using Wubi. However when I chose to install Ubuntu to a Harddrive, the option to "install side by side" was missing.

After reading on the forums, I did a chkdsk /f on Windows and tried again. Now my liveUSB does not show a boot menu!

When I select to boot from USB stick, the screen goes blank with a flashing cursor. Ctrl+alt+dlt reboots.

I'm really lost here! It seems when I fix one problem, another problem arises!

Also when trying to instal Ubuntu within Windows, the process goes through to 100% and asks me to reboot. When I do so, the option for Ubuntu does show in the boot menu. However when I select it, I get an error "Windows boot failed: file wubildr.mbr and status: 0xc00000f - something is corrupt".

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot Install On Netbook ?

Jun 14, 2010

I am running Windows 7 starter on my Samsung N150 Netbook. I have successfully installed Ubuntu on the 4 GB flash drive, and I have been running it for several weeks in the "try mode" without any problems. Now I decided to permanently install Ubuntu netbook edition on my computer from a flash drive. I am following this guide [url] and ran into a big problem on step #5 of the guide and step #4 of the installation. I am not getting the option of installing them side by side, choose between them each startup! Which is what I want to do... I am only getting the option of erase and use entire drive, and specify partitions manually. My goal is to keep Windows 7 on my netbook, and have an option of dual booting into either operating system.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot Snow Leopard OSX With 10.10 Netbook

Dec 10, 2010

Perhaps I should have put this in the apple users section, but I am not an apple user. I am using a MSI WIND U100 running OSX snow leopard retail (GUID/GPT - boots using Chameleon).

I've been feeling guilty preaching open source while not currently practising what I preach so finally downloaded ubuntu 10.10 (netbook version) and using unetbootin I made the ISO bootable on an external USB drive.

I already had an empty 40gb partition which I'd intended to dual boot linux on so I went ahead and booted from the external and installed ubuntu. During the install I divided up the 40GB with 3GB for swap and 37GB as ext4 mount point /

Anyway, it installed and rebooted and loaded ubuntu fine using the default option in the auto installed GRUB. However, although the menu show my OSX it does not boot (ARGH!). When selected there is disk activity for a few seconds and then nothing, just blank screen.

I'm praying that I just need to tinker with grub or something to get my OSX back...

(PS> the [URL] forums have loads of info on dual/triple booting these hackintosh netbooks but mostly involving windows XP or windows 7 rather than ubuntu and also mostly about earlier OSX varieties which booted onto MBR partitions rather that GPT.

Ubuntu :: Lost Data During Dual Boot Installation With Backtrack + 10.04 Netbook?

Dec 28, 2010

Generally I am used to installations of dual boot on different partitions(the traditional method) any windows OS with any ubuntu OS.I tried that with backtrack 4 and Ubuntu 10.04 netbook edition! I had previously installed ubuntu 10.04 and then had an extra partition that had data in it.Went ahead to boot with the backtrack 4 disk BUT it did not give me an option for installing them side-by side so i did it manually by editing the partition with the partitioner! I had 2 swamp spaces one i which was initially there for Ubuntu and the other i created! Then simply formated ine partition with EXT3 and mountpoint of / which made two of them!after installation, the grub shows that there is another OS but when it does not load!

Debian Installation :: Lenny Won't Boot On G5 ?

Apr 22, 2010

Had an old Power Mac G5 (dual 1.6ghz 256MB ram) collecting dust, so I did some research and came upon Debian Lenny. Idea was to setup the mac as a home server to share with Win7 HTPC/OSX 10.6 macbook pro/Ubuntu9.10 dell laptop machines in my house. With so many different OS's running in my house, I thought it would be the ideal solution! Downloaded and installed the Debian on the G5. Now after the fresh install.

I hear the "mac chime." Then I get:

Stage 1 Boot:

This screen loops with a folder and the finder icon w/ a ? mark.... Also, the longer this loops the faster the fans go!

Debian Installation :: Windows 7 Won't Boot After Lenny Install

Apr 9, 2010

I installed lenny and now my windows 7 won't boot. When I select it in Grub the machine just restarts the bios after a few seconds of black screen. The machine I'm using is a very vanilla intel p4.

I'll paste my /boot/grub/menu.lst below. All of the drive options look correct. I properly shutdown Windows 7 before installing lenny. I'm sure I can reinstall the mbr and get my windows back, but I would like to dual boot with grub.

Debian Installation :: Lenny - Squeeze Grub2 - No More Boot

Feb 28, 2011

Whenever I reboot, I get GRUB and the _ pinking, and that's it. With rescue cd I can have chroot shell, to troubleshoot I did the upgrade-from-grub-legacy and installed it to both /dev/sda and /dev/sdb In recovery I redid the upgrade-grub and grub-install commands but still have the same "GRUB and _ blinking".

Because the text "GRUB" and then nothing I didn't enouncter while googling, I need to ask here for further troubleshooting.

Debian :: Dual Boot Lenny With XP - XP Stops Booting ?

Oct 5, 2010

Have a little experience with backtrack 4, which is a Ubuntu distro. I'm changing to Lenny due to hardware limitations on my laptop, an older Dell inspiron 7000.

Here's the specs :
400 MHZ,
120 G HDD parted as C: = 20G (has bad sectors, left blank) and D: = 20G Windows part
128 Mb low density RAM
ATI Rage Mobility ( not sure of video RAM, I think 8 Mb)

Now I liked running BT and liked the linux work, so when the BT install went south I started to look for another linux distro I can run, the BT tools I use are linux after all. Here's where I hit my stump. I decided to go with the Lenny distro, it already has some of the tools I need, but the first time I installed I had the HDD like this 20G, 20G, 20G,20G, 17.??G. I had windows installed on C: (of course, no problems, yet)

After I installed lenny to D: via an iso I downloaded, the Debian GNU/Linux 5.0.6 "Lenny" - Official i386 xfce+lxde-CD Binary-1, BTW first install was from booting from the disk. After reparting, format, etc. of the install, GRUB boot loader detects my D: Windows, great. Reboot to GRUB boot menu, select ddebian, and it, until I realize I don't have synaptic, the tools, and apt isn't going to work unless I can load the linux driver from the cdrom...which I can't find., internet for answers I'm thinkin. GRUB loads fine, select windows and get the following error message "Windows can't start because of hardware configuration problems. Could not read from selected boot disk, check boot path and hardware. Check configuration manual for disk configuration."

It took three days to get Windows reinstalled, and a LL format (zerowrite the drive) but during the process I discovered a possible hdw issue...bad sectors on the C: hdd. Solution: C: 20G = unused, D: = Windows xp. Worked great. No more windows issues, so try it again. This time I used the disks installer from windows. Everything started great, boot menuselected debian, install-graphic, but this time I let the part manager create a drive, 20G from the free space an it appropriately made it's swapfile...when lenny booted it was good, but still no synaptic, cd/rom, couldn't browse the computer.

Reboot to windows to get instructions from someone that really knows what's going windows. exactly same message as before. I was able to boot into debian okay, but couldn't find any drives, utilities, wasn't very much, but I needed my windows and the internet to get lessons. I am familiar with the terminal console and KDE. Can use apt for updating, but prefer using the synaptic. Why does my windows keep disappearing? If I can solve the dual boot issue I can learn the system casually. Right now my config is: C: = 20G, nothing here, still haven't run a scandisk on todo list. D: = 20G Windows install...what I'm using now. I'm not going to attempt to reinstall debian until I receive a efinate answer to the dissappearing config, or boot capacity. Oh, yeah, Did try a fdisk/mbr and fix. this didn't bring it back either.

Debian Installation :: Triple Boot On A Netbook: Grub Does Not Appear

Dec 26, 2010

I recently bought a netbook on which Windows 7 Start Edition was installed. I partitioned the disk to install 2 other linux distributions : Backtrack 4 and Debian Lenny. Here is my partition scheme :

Disk /dev/sdb: 160.0 GB, 160041885696 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 19457 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Disk identifier: 0xc6a9bf3e

Partition table entries are not in disk order During both of the installs, I chose to install Grub. Unfortunately, when I start my netbook, it launches Windows 7 automatically and I do not see grub...

Debian :: Grub Screen At Startup With Dual Boot Lenny And Karmic Koala

Feb 1, 2010

I have a laptop with Karmic Koala in dual boot with Lenny. I need to reinstall Lenny however if I do that I will loose Karmic Koala in the grub screen because of the new version of grub that comes with Karmic Koala. Which means that I will need to reinstall Karmic Koala after Lenny so that they both appear in the grub screen at startup. If I reinstall only Lenny is it possible to use Gparted to change the boot back to Karmic Koala and have them both in the grub screen again? Or is there another way around it?

Installation :: Dual Booting On A Netbook

Aug 9, 2009

I've recently bought the Samsung N110 netbook - it comes pre-installed with Windows XP, but I've decided to run Linux on it.

The decision is this - remove Windows XP and have Linux as the sole OS, or keep Windows XP and use dual booting?

I will mainly be needing this for working at school, or general internet use when I don't have access to my desktop at home. Therefore, I think it's unlikely that I'll need highly specialist software that can only run on Windows. Also, Windows takes up a fair amount of space - could dual booting slow the netbook down?

Having been pestered by the local nerds and read up on a lot of the material on the web, I'm pretty convinced that Linux is a good choice for me on this netbook. That said, I may well run a trial anyway before I switch. So, is there any reason to keep Windows XP or should I ditch the pre-installed OS and go with Linux all the way?

Debian Installation :: Installed Dual Boot 6 RC2 / No Boot At All

Apr 17, 2011

Before the installation, I had triple boot of WinXP, Win 7, Ubuntu 10.10. As you can guess, the main boot-loader was grub. The second is Win 7 boot loader, and there it gives the option what to choose, load XP or Win 7.I made a decision to remove Ubuntu and install Debian(you know better than me why I did). So first, I searched a guide how to un-dual-boot. It told me to delete the two partition that Ubuntu use(swap and ext4) and write to MBR the win 7 boot-loader(using EasyBCD), so I delete them and use EeasyBCD. At this stage, I had 2 partitions: NTFS for XP and NTFS for Win 7, and the Win 7 boot-loader(and XP) worked pretty well.I install the latest testing of Debian(6 RC2) from DVD1 using this guide, except I choose to use the graphical installer, ext4(not ext3 as there), install the desktop environment, and choose to install grub(even know it didn't asked me). The swap partition I set is 3 GB because my RAM is 2 GB, even know that ubuntu set it in the past to 2 GB.The installation went pretty well, just when come to grub package, it says that there was an error with installing grub package(it didn't told me what), I had no choice, so I choose to skip over grub/lilo and finish with no boot manager. I was thinking to myself: "So I couldn't install grub, at least I have the Win 7 boot-loader(which contain XP loader), and maybe Win 7 boot-loader will recognize Debian too.". But I end up with no boot at all.It told me than when choose not to install boot-manager that I need to load /vmlinuz and give it the parameter root=/dev/sda4(my deb partition).I think that if I could install grub, I could load all my boots("sudo grub update" right?).How can I fix it?

Debian Installation :: Install XP Dual Boot On 7.8 Box

Mar 6, 2015

Is it possible to install Windows XP on a machine that already has Debian 7.8? I find lots of articles on installing Debian after but not before XP.

I would like to get a prompt at startup to select Windows XP or Debian 7.8 and then choose which one I want. The reason I want to do that is because I have Guitar Pro on XP and cant find anything as good and also I want to watch Netflix and cant seem to be able to find a way to do that on Debian 7.8 except windows emulator which defeats the point of Debian anyway. Also my Epson V500 will not work on Debian 7.1 and I have tried everything, been to Epson, installed drivers etc..

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Booting On Netbook ?

Nov 8, 2010

I am trying to dual boot ubuntu netbook edition along with xp but i get stuck at setting up the partitions. at the installation i have the option of installing alongside xp however when they show the graph it looks like they want me to share ubuntu on C:/ drive so that xp gets 60Gb and ubuntu gets 20Gb. What i would like to do is keep xp on the C:/ drive and install ubuntu on the D:/ drive so that windows and ubuntu each get 80GB.

What i have done so far is go into gparted and delete the D:/ drive so i have now 80Gb of unallocated space. however when i start the installation process and choose "install alongside other OS" it still chooses to share it with my C:/ drive. i would like to be walked through the process of splitting the hard drive so i can install ubuntu on D drive. also i know i need to create a swap partition do i do that before the installation of after?

Debian Installation :: UEFI Dual Boot With Two Distributions?

May 27, 2015

I have Debian installed but I need to dual boot with distribution based on Ubuntu 14.04. This is my first UEFI dual boot install attempt. And I must do it right. I must not lose my Debian !

Code: Select allDisk /dev/sdb: 232,9 GiB, 250059350016 bytes, 488397168 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disklabel type: gpt

[Code] ....

Ubuntu will go to /dev/sdb5 but I don`t no for sure what to do when installing Ubuntu. How to select during install existing UEFI partition(/dev/sdb1) so Debian and Ubuntu can use it. Can I select existing UEFI partition like I would do for /home or /swap ? Will this work ?

And what will happen with Grub if I select install grub ? I want to manage grub from Debian, it is my main OS. Can I skip Grub install and just update grub on my debian after ubuntu install ? Or I just install grub, then after completed Ubuntu install I install it again from Debian. Will this work ?

Is procedure of installing dual boot trivial like before or UEFI hide`s some unpleasant surprise.

Debian Installation :: Dual Boot GPT UEFI - 8.2 And Windows 10

Dec 15, 2015

I'll start off with stating my problem and summarize how I got to it.

I installed Windows 10 on an SSD. I installed Debian 8.2 after it. The SSD was/is a GPT disk. I installed both installations from a UEFI booted device (DVD for Windows, and USB drive with Live CD for Debian).

I tested it after each installation making sure I could boot via UEFI into Windows, then Debian, then Windows, to make sure nothing broke.

I rebooted the machine. Suddenly, no more UEFI. Nothing. I didn't change any BIOS/UEFI setup menu settings. Not even my USB drive with Live CD will boot through UEFI anymore. Even when nothing else is plugged into the system.

My situation is actually a bit more complicated than that, but I think that will suffice for now. I can still boot into the Live CD on the USB drive, just in Legacy mode only. I mounted the EFI partition on /mnt/boot after I mounted the file system for Debian on /mnt. It is identical, as far as I can tell, to as it was before when it was working.

My motherboard has CSM and Secure Boot, both have been set up how they need to be to boot UEFI into Debian. Tinkering with them further after things broke did not fix it. I tried all variations of options/settings.

The GRUB Reinstall guide says to be in EFI mode before starting it, so I can't do that.

My motherboard is an ASUS X99 Deluxe, and I've heard ASUS has special "features" (read: bugs) that come with their boards. Searching hasn't brought up any other people with this issue. I believe the firmware is updated to it's most current one.

I've tried dd-ing my backup of my old system, from before trying to migrate to a Dual Boot system, to the SSD (after backing up the dual boot setup with dd -> <name>.img via the Live CD USB). However, that won't boot either as it is a UEFI install as well.

The layout of my EFI partition is as such:

I've heard that the standards on how that's supposed to be set up isn't a standard. However, since it worked booting into the OS' the first time, I don't see how that could be the issue (a bad hierarchy layout leading to the UEFI not being able to see the OS installs).

I've seen that I can boot to an EFI shell (called Shell.efi, apparently) via an option in my UEFI BIOS setup menu on my motherboard. Is that an option here to somehow bypass this strange issue?

All I can think to try is burn it all and start over. But not knowing what caused it means I could just make it happen again. Plus, I can't boot into UEFI install media, so I can't install UEFI boot OS'. :/

However on reboot, I wasnt presented when boot option ( windows xp vs debian) but my windows xp directly got booted. How to get this boot option.

Debian Installation :: Installing Next To Windows (dual Boot)?

Dec 13, 2010

I've recently bought a new computer and installed Windows 7 on it, but left 100GB of space on a separate partition so I could put Debian next to it in dual boot. I have the new Intel i7 950 processor and I run Windows 7 Proffesional 64 bit, so I assumed I had to pick the ia64 debian image. However the CD I burned from the ia64 image didn't boot. (a black screen started and an underscore kept flashing, but nothing else happened)[URL]

I've managed to install i386 Debian on a older intel pentium 4 computer before and that worked fine. I believe I used another application to burn the CD then. This time I've burned the CD with the default Windows CD burn application. I can try burn more CD's but I don't have much left so I want to make sure this is the problem before attempting again. (the burned files on the ia64 CD look exactly the same as the files on the i386 CD, when browsing through the cd files in windows) "If your PC has a 64-bit AMD or Intel processor, you will most likely need the "amd64" images (though "i386" is also fine), the "ia64" images will not work."This seems a bit strange, they recommend me to use the amd64 image if you have a "64-bit AMD or intel processor". I dunno if this is a typo, but it seems weird to me that the AMD-64 Debian version would also work on my Intel machine

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Booting With Windows XP On New Netbook

Nov 21, 2010

I am going to be dual booting with Windows XP on my new netbook. I know that I will be required to re-install XP before I will have to reinstall Linux.

My question is about the /boot partition option. If I was to create a /boot partition, would that prevent Windows from erasing Grub when I reinstall Windows? I have been Googling and I can't find an answer so I figure it won't work but I better ask as it would make life a whole lot easier.

They also have a tablet, there is the present 7 and a half inch screen and a newer ten incher coming out, the smaller one is heavier but I could get it for a relatively low price. it has a usb port. Question is can I dual boot Gnome3 on it? and can I then update it? And can Gnome3 do the touch screen thing? Using Fedora of course. Or should I put the tablet off for a while?
