Fedora Installation :: Grub / Try To Boot - Flashes A Quick Blue Screen & Restarts

Jun 26, 2011

I don't really have any Linux experience. But I wanted to try it out. Now I'm afraid I did not set this up properly. Grub gives me 3 options:

Fedora (
Fedora (

When I select <Other> to boot into windows... it starts to try to boot... but then flashes a quick blue screen & restarts. I tried to boot into Window's normal mode, safe mode, and command line... all just restart fdisk -l gives the following:

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot XP - 10.10 - Boot Screen Shows Up But Then Computer Restarts And Returns To The GRUB Menu

Dec 16, 2010

I followed a tutorial to install XP across my entire HDD. I installed Ubuntu 10.10 "Alongside another OS". Ubuntu loads fine, but when trying to load XP, the boot screen shows up, but then the computer restarts and returns to the GRUB menu.

I saw some threads on this site and tried to type: sudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

In the terminal. It returned a blank text document so I'm not sure if that information was outdated. I then typed: sudo fdisk -l

And got this:

Not sure what any of this means, but I sure hope someone else does. I would say forget XP, but it's hard to let go of some of the games and software I use. I appreciate any responses, thank you.

I tried to format the table as it appeared, but the forum corrected the extra spaces.

Fedora Installation :: Boot Just Stops On Plain Blue F Screen

Mar 15, 2011

Have recently dual-installed F14 with Windows 7 on an Asus Eee PC 1015P, have been in and out of both systems satisfactorily a number of times. Now the Fedora boot just hangs up at the plain blue "f" screen. I have been prodding around looking at the problem of having no WLAN under Fedora but have not knowingly made any changes. I thought about just doing a re-install but am reluctant to risk messing things up further i.e damaging the Windows until I have Fedora working ok.

I just installed Fedora 13 on my HP HDX 16 laptop (and accidentally corrupted my vista partition by resizing it so I'm pretty much stuck now. ^_^)

The light for the wifi toggle button constantly flashes between blue and orange (normally meaning the wifi card is on or off). Does anybody know how I can fix this?

I'm a bit of a nube with Linux. Have had it installed and Acer Veriton for a while but after last yum update it now hangs on the blue screen with the F bubble in the middle. I can login remotely OK but am not sure what to look for. It seems to be something X11 related but I'm not sure. I would post the relevant logs but am not sure which ones are associated with this problem.

Red Hat / Fedora :: 11 Hangs At The Blue Screen With The F Bubble In The Middle On Boot Up

Jan 6, 2010

I have installed Fedora 11 and have been using it for about a 4 months now. Everything has been working just fine until this morning when I booted up the computer and it hung at the blue screen with the F bubble in the middle. I waited about 10 minutes without any change to the system. I held down the power button to power off and tried starting the computer again with the same result.

Red Hat / Fedora :: Change The OS Boot Screen From The Blue Loading Bar At The Bottom?

Jun 1, 2011

there is a way to change the OS boot screen from the blue loading bar at the bottom to something more fancy. For example if you take a look at Oracle Enterprise Linux 6 they have a loading screen that makes an "O" on start up. Note: I am not talking about GRUB, I already know how to change the grub boot screen. If so can someone provide the steps needed to modify the OS loading screen.

Ubuntu :: Computer Restarts Before Going To Grub Screen Continually

Feb 16, 2011

I am having a re-occuring problem with Grub. The problem seems to occur about once every 15 or so times that I start up. Basically, it gets past the Samsung branded screen but before it goes to the Grub screen, the computer will restart - it just continually gets to this point and restarts until I shut down with the power button. The problem is easily fixed by re-installing Grub using an ubuntu CD. Things will then run fine for about a week and the same problem will occur.

Fedora :: Unable To Boot - Emblem In The Centre Of Screen Appears And Starts To Turn From White To Dark Blue

Dec 7, 2010

I am unable to boot my laptop in the usual way. The fedora emblem in the centre of the screen appears and starts to turn from white to dark blue in the usual way. When it is almost complete it stops.

In order to make the machine boot i hit escape and a message says leaving interactive startup mode. At this point the machine continues to start up.

When i do manage to get it to boot i get the following message repeated many times:

I should also add... The laptop will not close down, once i click switch off the screen turns blue and displays the fedora emblem in the centre. At the top right text says "Shutting Down" but at this point the system hangs.

Red Hat :: System Won't Boot - Just Says GRUB And Restarts / Sort It?

Jan 20, 2009

I updated a RHEL 4 system today using up2date and when the system rebooted it just said "GRUB" on the screen for a few seconds and then restarted (and did this over and over and over).

I booted from a rescue CD and was going to reinstall grub.

Here's the kicker: this machine has two hard drives configured with software RAID 1, and I don't want to screw up the mirroring by tinkering with grub.

/etc/fstab shows that /boot is at /dev/md0 but "/sbin/grub-install /dev/md0" doesn't work ("/dev/md0 does not have any corresponding BIOS drive").

I have a bad feeling that if I do "/sbin/grub-install /dev/hda1" that I'm going to screw up my mirroring.

Ubuntu :: 9.04 Upgrade Fails On Boot - Screen Flashes To Black

May 2, 2009

I have just finished updating my older box from 8.10 to 9.04 and installing a bunch of programs. I had shut it down several times between sessions but when I unplugged it and moved it, it fails. It goes fine through the BIOS and GRUB (I think) but then when there is a screen of text it flashes to black several times and then displays a screen that looks like static with "Ubuntu" barely visible in several places.

Fedora Installation :: F10 On Homebuilt Server - Screen Goes Blank And Freeze - The Blue Line Changing To White

Jun 4, 2009

Ive recently built a music server with the following configuration:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200 processor
Gigabyte GA-MA74GM-S2 Motherboard with 2GB ram
Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB SATA Hard Drive
Samsung 22X CD/DVD Burner IDE

I would like to be able to run Fedora 10 (and Vortexbox, an application to burn and store CD�s) but have been unsuccessful in getting F10 to load. I am a novice Linux/Fedora user. I've been able to load and run Windows XP on the server with no problem. I have downloaded and verified both the x86_64 DVD and the x86_64 Live CD from the Fedora website. With the live CD, the last thing that appears before the screen goes blank and the install freezes is the blue line changing to white. I have tried several different SATA configurations , have turned off all non essential options in BIOS(ethernet, USB support), and have tried loading with fail safe bios settings.

Debian :: Cannot Change Back To Basic Blue Grub Boot Splash?

Dec 17, 2010

I get the new boot splash with the nice little rocket and all but I seriously dislike it. While I don't stare at my computer as it boots, I do happen to see it from time to time. Unfortunately, I always see this new little rocket and I wonder where my traditional Debian blue with the swirl went. Yes, I know I am using Grub-Pc now, and I have tried to edit my /etc/grub.d file by renaming the wallpaper line to my preference.

But all my config file sees is "background-grub.png" which is the little rocket ship. So, I give. What is the secret code to unlock my grub config file or do I seriously have to muck around with Plymouth in order to have a choice in the matter? Just for those of you who contemplate counseling me on better time management instead of wasting my precious time over such a silly little thing, I agree. Not to mention that I use Debian because I like to build my system.

Ubuntu Installation :: Screen 'flashes' After Upgrade To Narwhal?

I have a Dell Inspiron 5150 which I first upgraded 'over-the-air' to Narwhal. This completed with no errors. After reboot, the screen momentarily displays some icons before reverting to the background - this loops round every few seconds.I've subsequently tried installing with the CD which runs through with no errors, but does the same thing when it's finished - blink... blink... blink...

Ubuntu :: Won't Boot - Died - Startx The Screen Flashes And Brings Me Back To A Failed To Open Devices Report

Mar 30, 2011

After tweeking some graphics settings, and replacing some hardware, ubuntu won't boot. Being left in the X session (CTRL + ALT + f7), it's what looks like a log:


^ and that's where it hangs. So I went into ctrl alt f1, and logged in with my user/pass, and did the command: startx the screen flashes, and brings me back to a failed to open devices report.


I tried re-installing GDM, but turns out that the PC isn't actually online, hence unable to install GDM after uninstallation. So I downloaded the gdm .deb, and tried to install it from a USB flash drive, but I get dependency errors. I'm at a loss here, I could really use some help, this is the PC that has all my data on it, 450 GB +, I'd love to not have to transfer that over to a new installation!

Fedora :: No Shell After Upgrade - Screen Flashes On Login

Sep 29, 2009

I upgraded from fedora 6 to fc10 using a net-inst iso. Everything went great however when I rebooted gnome wouldn't start up and there were other error messages, however thats not my current question. I figured id login as root, I put my pw in and the screen briefly flashes and then back to login prompt. The flash is a message saying something about no shell. Same occurs when trying to logon to my main user account. I can boot to single user and see that all my partitions are there and the data is there. My password file has the shell at the end of the entries.

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot - Windows Has Never Booted - Get A Blue Screen

Nov 18, 2010

I have a Toshiba NB305 on which I've installed 10.04 and then 10.10. I set it up to dual boot windows, but windows has never booted. I get a quick blue screen, and then it goes back to the grub menu. Ubuntu boots just fine. I occasionally have reason to boot into Windows. So it would be nice to get it working. Here's the output from boot_info_script.

Debian Installation :: Squeeze - Machine Flashes Fonts And Screen Blips

Aug 15, 2011

I have been using Debian for three or so years now. Not sure what all the difference it makes, but I'm installing Debian Squeeze on a Sony Vaio desktop computer... With an nVidia GeForce 5200 which works perfectly in other computers and on the same computer when dual booting with Windows XP. I've tried and installed several times already to no avail. When I fresh install just the standard system, no graphic desktop, no Xorg, no servers, no nothing, just the standard system, command line only. When I do the initial boot on this blessed computer, part way through the boot process my monitor shuts off and it says frequency out of range (thats a message from the monitor itself, not the computer or debian).

The same install process I've executed countless times. I thought it was a dependency issue, problem with X perhaps. I can install lenny, but not squeeze. When booting in single user mode, it seems like it craps out either during or right after it loads or does something with the "drm" - you know how during the boot script, the machine "flashes" the fonts and the screen blips... its seems to me like that's where its happening at. The monitor works just fine, I really don't think that's the problem. But it is frustrating and I have no clue where to go about finding what the issue is if I can't see whats going on.

Ubuntu :: Dual Boot 9.10 / Windows 2000 Resulted In A Blue Screen?

Jan 2, 2011

I have tried dual booting Ubuntu 9.10 and W2K two times and this has resulted in a blue screen of death in the Windows partition. I have subsequently had to wipe Linux and restore Windows using fdisk/ mbr.

The MBR was set to hd0, but should this be installed on the Linux or Windows partition to prevent this?
