Fedora Installation :: CDROM Drive Not Found For Install?
Jul 11, 2010
I downloaded and burned the Fedora-13-x86_64-dvd iso to install on my shiny new box (MSI NF980-G65 MB, AMD Phenom II x4 945 CPU, 8GB Corsair DDR3 memory, generic ATAPI DVD drive, 2 500GB SATA drives, 2 1.5TB SATA drives). I boot from the DVD and and take the default install/upgrade option on the menu. I've tried with the default boot options and with about a dozen different options, all give the the same thing.
Looking console 3, shows the following:
ERROR loader: removing ddmode.conf failed
ERROR loader: got to setupCdrom without a CD device
It can't find the CD/DVD drive that it booted from. The install on console 1 is prompting for a driver to load. Do I need to download a driver for a generic ATAPI/IDE CD/DVD drive?
When installing FC 11 after a few questions about language I got:
"The Fedora disc was not found in any of your CDROM drives ...."
I read a couple of the threads on the problem and it seemed people were shooting in the dark for answers. Two issues mentioned were SCSI and DMA problems. If I go into the bios and disable the DMA or SCSI driver, and then I re-enable them after installing Fedora, will Fedora see the DMA or SCSI? Or will the fact that they were disables during installation keep Fedora from recognizing them later?
Why is it that FC6 installs just fine from a USB CDROM in an external enclosure but FC12 boots from the CD asks to install or upgrade an existing system but then stops at no devices found and wants the install path for the install image? It appears to see the CDROM, boots then looses its mind and forgets a CDROM was attached.
I am new to this and just got a SUN Netra 440MHz T1 105 with 512MB RAM, 2 19G SCSI drives and a IDE CDROM.I am having trouble loading Ubuntu 9.05 server iso via the CDROM. The CDROM driver does not get found and the installation aborts. The CDROM is a 24x toshiba XM-7002B.I can load the old Ubuntu server 7.10 but cannot update it. (would need some help to do that, too).
I'm trying to create a new VM with Debian 7.6. I downloaded the 3 install iso discs and tried to install. When I begin the installation it seems to take control of the CDROM and I am no longer able to eject it by either pressing the eject button or trying to eject through Windows. The installation goes fine until it asks if I have any other discs to install (which I do ... I have 2 more). At this point I say "Yes" but I cannot get the CDROM to open up at all since it doesn't automatically eject for another disc and as I mentioned before ... I can't do it manually or in Windows.
- I cannot do an installation over the internet because this is a government computer which is requires to be hooked to a government network. There are certain certificates required to access the network which are not available to my newly made (or in the process of making) Linux system but rather only to my host Windows system. - I cannot use a newer version of VirtualBox because that opens up a whole new set of issues dealing with WinVerifyTrust getting CERT_E_REVOCATION_FAILURE most likely due to our symantec security software.
So my Storage Settings in VirtualBox are as follows for my CDROM drive: - Controller: IDE Controller - Type: PIIX4 - "Use Host I/O Cache" is checked - Host Drive D: - CD/DVD Drive: IDE Secondary Master - "Passthrough" is checked
I cannot install the Debian 7.6 OS because I cannot eject each disc and put in the next disc. The only way I can eject the disc is if I reboot my entire system (host windows system) which obviously leaves me at an unfinished point in my install and therefore I have to restart the install and end up right where I was 30 minutes earlier.
I have successfully setup a FOG server to image my Windows clients, so I have tftp, pxe and anything else related to booting to a pxe server setup and rocking. What I'm trying to do now, is use the CentOS net install files to setup CentOS on an old server with no USB boot option, and a broken scsi cdrom drive (it's a Dell PowerEdge 2400, with a single PIII 733 and 1.25GB ram).
Using the FOG Projects gparted wiki entry (adding gparted to the pxe boot menu) I was actually successfully able to pull the net install files over to the PE, and install CentOS 5.5 via local ftp server. At first it kept erroring out (I kept picking and choosing individual packages from the package groups), so I thought it may be an issue with the GUI install (the python script kept spitting back errors forcing a reboot). In any case, I finally got through the GUI install, but now I need / want to know how to force a text mode install.
the bolded "append" line is where I thought I could force the text mode install script, but that didn't work. The vmlinuz and initrd.img files were both pulled form the net install iso, NOT the livecd. Would that have made a difference? If not, what / where / how should I force the text mode install script?
I'm trying to install Fedora 12 on my EeePC 901 from a 8GB USB stick. However I get the error each time after clicking Next on the boot loader setup screen. Code: Missing ISO 9660 Image The installer has tried to mount image #1, but cannot find it on the hard drive. Please copy this image to the drive and click Retry. Click Exit to abort the installation. I tried this with the DVD as well as the net install image. I tried setting up the USB stick with unetbootin and semi-manually . I still get the same error.
I've set up the first 4GB SSD (sda1) as / ext4 partition and the second 16GB SSD (sdb1) as an encrypted /home partition. sdc1 is the USB stick and sdd1 is a 16GB SD card in the card reader. They are not used in the installation. I realize, that the 4GB / partition will probably be too small etc, but I'm just trying to get the installer to go the package selection page.
I recently decided to install Ubuntu on a couple of computers without CD drives (netbooks), so I followed these instructions to create a bootable flash drive: http:[url].....That worked fine for both netbooks. Now I'm trying to use the same flash drive on a desktop currently running Windows Vista, but get his message when I try to boot from the flash drive:
No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found!I tried to boot one of the netbooks from the flash drive again and that still works.I'm thinking a BIOS setting.
I exchanged my CDROM drive for DVD drive. The DVD is recognized in the BIOS (will boot to DVD install disc) and in CentOS 5.2 (when I list the hardware), but CentOS must still think it's a CDROM drive. When I run VLC in a terminal it kicks back these errors code...
I think this means that "hdc" is linked to a CDROM configuration somewhere, but I don't know where to find it to change it (or out it). It also appears thee is no DVD module loading. (Of course, I could be making poor guesses.)
I thought there might be something in the fstab, but it doesn't appear there is anything there (for the CDROM or DVD drive)?
Is there somewhere else I should be looking? /dev/*** ?
I managed to boot from hard disk, everything works ok. But Gparted has a bug, it works in Live Hard Disk, but not when I click the install icon because it can't umount /cdrom. But I solved that by formatting ext4 and swap area from gnome-panel Live Hard Disk and only put mount point / after click on install.But problem stroked back: install is not possible because it wants to umount itself before installing, wich cannot be possible. I'm installing it in a new place /dev/sda5. Live Hard Disk is booting from /dev/sda3.
I downloaded the Ubuntu Server 10.04 64bit ISO and the universal USB installer, created a USB install disk and booted from it. I started the installation and right after keyboard setup I got an error saying Unable to read from CD-ROM, retry/abort. Looking at the alt-f4 log it was unable to find a file, fs-secondary.udeb I hit alt-f2 and cd'd to /cdrom/pool/main/l/linux (I think, this is all from memory) and found that file, almost. The file there was fs-secondaryblahblahblah.ude, no b on the end. I tried renaming it but the filesystem was mounted read-only.
So, cd back to / Type mount and hit enter. Take note of the cdrom entry, at the beginning of that line it will say /dev/? Mine was like /dev/svd0 or something like that. Remember whatever that is. Then type umount /cdrom Then type mount -t vfat /dev/????? (whatever your device was from earlier) /cdrom That will mount the cdrom rw so you can rename the file to .udeb Then press alt-F1 and press enter to retry and the installation will continue like normal.
I accidentally deleted my mahjongg game from ubuntu 10.04.Now when iam trying to install it from software center or synaptic, half way through it's asking for ubuntu cd.Eventhough i insert the original ubuntu 10.04 cd,it's not taking it.it keeps asking for the cd.It is same whenever i try to install any more game from synaptic or software center.
I am attempting to install debian for the first time on my pc that has no cdrom drive. I downloaded the Jessie CD image and wrote it to a 4GB stick, it didnt work. Then tried the netinstall image but face the same issue.
To write the usb stick I used unetbooting first, then tried win32diskimager and finally tried DD while stick was not mounted
I have recently installed virtual box on fc14 using add /remove software . However so far i have not been able to install any OS on that. I put the OS CD the cdrom and click on start virtual machine..it gives following errors ..
I have followed the instructions given there but all in vain...
Code: [root@Fedora Raman]# /etc/sysconfig/modules/VirtualBox-OSE.modules ERROR: modinfo: could not find module vboxdrv ERROR: modinfo: could not find module vboxnetflt ERROR: modinfo: could not find module vboxnetadp
I am trying to install F12 on my desktop. I previously had F9 installed. I zero-filled the harddrive before attempting installtion. When attempting to install F12 from the DVD I get various messages about needing drivers. The drivers listed seem to run the gamut from network cards to harddrives. I have an SATA drive installed as my primary disk. I have not been able to install any version since F9 so I thought I should finally try to nail down what is going on.
I'm running Fedora 14, with a SATA interface CD/DVD drive and I'm attempting to run an installation script on a CD for an embedded Linux learning kit.Logged in as root (su), I receive:bash : /media/EmbeddedLinux/install_tools Permission DeniedI have searched and see similar situations on the web, but not exactly the same.I cannot resolve this issue using chmod, and find no relevant exec rights set in /etc/fstab.Using mount I find the (automounted) CD drive on /dev/sr0.I've searched quite a bit but never could find the thread that was supposedly listed in this forum.I understand that I should be able to copy the contents of the folder to my machine, then execute, but if possible I would prefer to address the real cause, not go around it.Also, where on earth will I find the location of whatever is affecting the ability to execute from an automounted media?
I have downloaded fedora 10, i386 and right to DVD/UD using 4x write speed. I have one machine have installed win xp, now i want to over right here, when i select installation , its asking common questions like language, drivers, when i select from Local CD/DVD i got 'No Driver Found' Error.
I have had a dual boot on my system since first trying Ubuntu a few months ago.I had a few problems when i upgraded to 11.04 (mainly due to the new desktop Unity), but after some great help here, we had the old desktop running again.I have Windows running on my spare Computer in case i should need it for any reason, though can not think of one lol Now i am used to Ubuntu (from the using side, get lost in terminal etc so here i come if i need help) i decided i would totally commit my main computer to Ubuntu.I downloaded the latest iso from the Ubuntu site, and burnt it to CD, inserted in my main computer & rebooted. It goes past the first purple ubuntu page (hit a key to choose language & also get a selection Menu) then goes to black screen and i get:
BusyBox v1.17.1 (ubuntu 1:1.17.1-10ubuntu1) built-in shell (ash)Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.(initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //silesystem.squashfs failed: Input/output errorCan not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs(hope i typed that i correctly)I have burnt the iso image numerous times, using different disks, speed (from x4 - x52) and burning programs
Fc11 installed well, it was related to a particular sata driver perhaps The installation went well up to the reboot, and then displayed the message saying that LogVol00 was not found. 3ware sata raid card, usually it installs without error
My cdrom drive was working until yesterday it didn't mount at all. It said 'special device /dev/scd0 does not exist'. I went and checked in BIOS and the CD rom was not identified there as well I would like to know if there is a workaround for this problem. I am using an ACER aspire 4520 laptop with only ubuntu 9.10 on i
I don't have a working DVD burner. I'd like to transfer the FC12 install DVD image to a USB thumb drive, and install from there. Is that reasonably easy to do?ow would I transfer the .iso file for the install image to the USB thumb drive in such a way that I could boot from i
The CDROM/DVD drive in the new computer was defective. Everything is working now.
My ancient Dell desktop finally kicked the bucket but the hard drive was relatively new (less than a year old).So I replaced that old desktop with a new desktop (not Dell this time) and decided to just plug in the old hard drive - to see what happens.Well, I was pleasantly surprised when Debian booted up and executed as normal (ok then, ALMOST normal)!
The problem is that the CDROM/DVD-RW is not recognized.For example, I have an audio CD in it, but neither file managers or multimedia players can see it (where 'it' is either the CD itself or the CDROM device).
I've tried GUI applications like mplayer, kplayer, Vlc, dolphin, pcmanfm; and I've tried the command line as well (bash).Short of doing a complete reinstall of Debian, is there a way to get it to recognize this 'new' hardware?
just installed squeeze today, all went well but when I put a cdrom or dvd disc in it will not auto mount.. have to manually mount them from terminal. I've looked a /ect/fstab and do not see any problems there. Anyone else run into this problem on a squeeze install and fixed it?
My cdrom was sort of working, but the tray was physically damaged. The usb was working without a problem.
After replacing the the cdrom drive with a similar model known to work well I could not get it to mount. I then tried to move important files to usb to try a fresh install. The usb stick flickered when I put it in, but it didn't mount. Same behaviour as the cdrom, the light goes on when I turn on the computer, but once I'm logged in I can't access the cdrom.
I have tried multiple variations of playing with fstab and trying to mount things in terminal to no avail. I just can't get Ubuntu to recognize the usb or cdrom even though their lights go on when I first try to use them.
