Fedora Installation :: ISO Image Burned On CD - Dell 300SC Server

Jul 20, 2010

I have a Dell PowerEdge 300 SC that won't boot to the Fedora ISO image burned to the CD. I unpacked the .iso and the CD has the boot, isolinux and LiveOS folders visible. In the BIOS, I put the CD driver ahead of the hard drive in the boot sequence. It just doesn't see it. Is my hardware simply obsolete?

Fedora Installation :: 10 Install - Burned Dvds Would Not Boot

Jan 30, 2009

I'm trying to install fedora 10 via dvd without a lot of success. i'm doing this on an old hp 8765c computer. it has a sansung sd-612 dvd-rom player. the dvd's i burned would not boot. so, i checked the dvd. sha1sum. check verify dvd when burned. check boot on system where the dvd burned. check dvd verify when bootedc check ok, lets check the dvd player. From i can see on the web, this player had issues about not playing dvds. some relate to driver issue when upgrading me to xp. and, some refer to updating firmware. lots of post about the dvd player not playing dvds. None with a succinct solution.

Well, if anyone has a solution for updating the firmware for a samsung sd-623 dvd player, it would be helpful. For now, installing from the internal dvd player isn't going to work for hardware reasons. Plan B lets try installing from the dvd using a network attached dvd server. sing the net install cd. use linux askmethod, use url to point to the dvd. the image in retreived, select all the defautl options, format the drive, does the package selection, does the package dependencies, but errors on the retriving packages. puts up the download retry message. then show message about not being able to retreive the authcong-gkt... rpm. just let the net install go. i get to the nic configuration, it errors out. probably network manager issue about trying to set a static ip address.........

Fedora Installation :: Evaluate The Checksum - Burned A CD With The Disc1.iso

Apr 1, 2010

I've downloaded the


files. I then downloaded "Fedora-12-x86_64-CHECKSUM" and ran sha1sum.exe on my iso files and compared the results. They were wrong for all 5 iso files. Figuring there was a problem with the way I was trying to evaluate the checksum I burned a CD with the disc1.iso. I received a "INSERT A BOOT DISK" error from my machine. I then tried downloading the disc1.iso again and ran checksum on my newly downloaded file and get the same checksum on both the old and new disc1.iso files.

When I run:

I get the response:

It seems to me the checksum value should be:

What am I doing wrong? I've installed many different distros in the past and am pretty sure I burned the iso file not just copied it to the CD.

Debian Installation :: Which Squeeze Iso Image Needed For An Old Dell

Mar 11, 2011

I have an old Dell Dimension L933r and would like to boost it with Debian. I wonder if that is possible in your opinion. It right now runs on Windows ME. The computer is 9 or 10 years old. I bought it years ago but have not been using it for the past couple of years. I don't know the specs of this computer unfortunately. I don't know whether it's 32 or 64 bits or what's its architecture. Can you help me locate the right iso image for this hardware? I want to install Squeeze if it's possible.

Ubuntu Installation :: Burned DVD Of Version 9 Not Recognized

Jul 11, 2010

I've been trying for days now to install Ubuntu on a Dell Dimension 5100 desktop. It's got a 2ghz processor, ATI graphics card and 512 ram. It has a DVD drive that it boots from. Here's the problem. I have Ubuntu 10 burned on a regular CD and I have Ubuntu 9.1 burned on a DVD. I can boot this Dell up using the CD. It goes through the regular install, gets to 23% then tells me that it can't recognize the CD/DVD device or the hard drive. I've re-seated cables, I know the hardware is all good, this is my media computer that Ive had attached to my TV now for a year. It was running fine 3 days ago before I got the great idea to convert it to Linux.

Now...once that fails I try to put in the burned DVD of version 9. Again the computer boots, I tell it to boot from the DVD...but this time the computer acts as if that drive doesn't even exist. It simply can't find the DVD drive anymore once I put a DVD into it. Is this a problem with the basic reading?? It'll read a CD but not a DVD. If I let it boot all the way to the live Ubuntu CD, the DVD drive is recognized just fine, reads DVDs, etc. Is there another solution, something I should be trying? I need this comp on Ubuntu. I've already converted all other systems in my house and this POS is the only abomination still using windows.

Ubuntu Installation :: Checking Md5sum Of A Burned CD?

Dec 26, 2010

I checked the md5sum of the iso using winMd5Sum utility, it is OK.

To check the CD, right clicked the md5sum file in it, send to winmd5sum, and then copied the corresponding hash from the ubuntuhashes page into the bottom text box, and compared. The message box says md5 sums are different. Now the question is, have I done it correctly, I mean, is this the way to check a burned CD, OR, is there another way to check md5sum of a burned CD?

Server :: Find A .ovm Format Image Of A Windows Server Installation?

Sep 16, 2010

I currently run Windows Server 2008 at my office, but I'm looking to test Samba as a PDC for future reference/consulting work. Before I go and try to configure Samba, I wanted to ask if anyone can think of pitfalls I would run into and perhaps recommend a better setup:
<10 PCs running either Windows XP, Vista, or 7.

VirtualBox running Debian (planning on swapping for Fedora) on a Windows XP Home computer.
Computers are connected to a large switch, which is connected to a wireless router. The Windows server doesn't employ ICS (essentially is just a $1500 PDC ). where I could find a .ovm format image of a windows server installation? I'm guessing vmware would work in this regard, but I'm not fond of using purposely crippled software.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Desktop Edition - Burned Disk Not Readable

Apr 30, 2010

So I downloaded the Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop Edition and burned it to a disk. Shut off my computer and restarted it, booting from the CD Drive. It couldn't find it. So I thought maybe there was an unrecorded write error so I burned it to a second disc. Well after burning it I noticed I can't even see the disc anymore. It doesn't seem to be recognized at all. That explains why it didn't boot from CD.

But what I want to know is why on earth is it basically going invisible and not working? I've never had a problem with burning discs, especially Ubuntu stuff... So why...? Well I just booted up the CD on a different computer and it seems to be working fine. So it appears that my computer simply has ceased to see bootable discs or maybe its just non-empty discs.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Server (64 Bit) And RAID On Dell Poweredge 2850

Oct 15, 2010

I just got my new server today (a Dell Poweredge 2850), and I'm trying to install the latest version of Ubuntu on it, however it fails to detect my hard drives. They are in a raid array (raid 1 I believe). I've never worked with a raid array before, and I'm wondering, is there anything special I have to do to install Ubuntu on one?

General :: Ubuntu Server 10.10 Installation On Dell Inspiron 7000

Mar 11, 2011

I have an old dell inspiron 700 that I want to turn into a home file server. I have installed ubuntu 7.10 and after a huge amount of google work got all my hardware in line. Then I realised that I should have installed 10.10 So I downloaded and burnt the new ISO and tried to install it. The install does not recognize my Xircom RealPort Ethernet card but that is okay, 7.10 didn't either and I got it working post install. But 10.10 can't detect the pci hard drive. I have tried various things but since I am not that familiar with linux I am just stabbing in the dark.

What bios settings should I be aiming for? What boot options should I set and how? Why are the russians being such kill joys over the discovery of fossilized meteorites?

Fedora Installation :: 14 Installation On Dell Vostro - Starts For Few Seconds And Freezes There

Dec 10, 2010

I have Dell Vostro laptop with Core2 processor 1.8 GHz, 2 GB RAM. I want to install Fedora. I tried to install it with Fedora_14_ 32 bit and Fedora_14_ 64 bit. After booting by DVD or USB, I get initial blue screen in which I select Install and it starts for few seconds and freezes there, it does not move ahead. I got Fedora 32 bit DVD from Fedora so it should have come with checksum checked. So IMO DVD is ok, it is something else with regard to hardware detection, stopping installation to go ahead. I tried 3 times, but do not go ahead.

Fedora Servers :: Setup RAID On DELL Server With F10 64Bit OS?

Jan 22, 2009

I have had no problem installing Fedora OS on any of my Dell servers prior to this post. Anyway, I wouldn't call this a problem but recently, we bought another DELL server with Quad Core, 4GB, etc... AND this model has 2 swappable SAS Harddrives.

I wouldn't call myself an expert but then again I am not a newbie too. However, I have never setup any RAID before and now I am forced to setup RAID1 on this server. So, in a way, I am a newbie in setting up RAID

Would someone please point me in the right direction as I have no idea what I am supposed to do to setup the RAID. FYI, I will be installing Fedora 10 64bit on this server. I would appreciate if you can start from the very beginning, ie. partitioning, formatting the harddrives during OS installation, etc..

General :: Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server Won't Boot From Fedora 12 DVD Because Of CD Only Drive

Jan 23, 2010

Dell PowerEdge 1600SC Server won't boot from Fedora 12 DVD in the drive because it only supports CDs as I found out after the fact. I'm a complete novice @ servers, so if you need more detail, let me know, and I'll try to provide it. This server is around 4-6 years old. it has "PXE" boot, not sure what that means? This particular server has 3 RAID hard drives. As far as I know, they have all been wiped. I looked up the service tag on Dell, and it has: Compact Disk Drive, 650M, I Internal, Half Height, 48X, BlackHitachi LG Data Storage as its CD drive. Thus, the CD drive does not support DVDs, so installation will have to be via a live CD. However, I'm trying to put Amahi Home Server (http://www.amahi.org/), and Live CD/USB stick installs are not recommended unless one is an expert Linux user.

Fedora Installation :: Install F8 With DELL Optiplex 755?

Feb 7, 2009

I have a Fedora 6 in DELL Optiplex 755. When I installed Fedora 8, I got the following error message:

"An unhandled exception has occurred. This is most likely a bug. Please
save a copy of the detailed exception and file a bug report against
anaconda at http://bugzilla.redhat.com"

This error message is from action of screen: "Installation requires
partitioning of your hard drive. By default, a partitioning layout is
chosen which is reasonable for most users. You can either choose to use
this or create your own."

I chose: "Remove Linux partitions on selected drives and create default

Fedora Installation :: Wireless Network On Dell XPS M1330 - 10

Mar 11, 2009

Recently installed Fedora 10 on a DELL XPS M1330 Laptop. JUST CANT GET WI-FI TO WORK!

I first installed the ndiswrapper using this command : # yum install kmod-ndiswrapper and that was fined.

Went to dell web-site and downloaded the driver for broadcom using the command: $ wget [url]

unzip followed by saving it to home dir...

Type the following command: cd /home/username/broadcom/

Type in this command and am not really sure what they do but i think it helps to configure the wi-fi dell driver.

Rebooted the computer and checked if the driver was installed using # ndiswrapper -l and came up with bcmwl5 : invalid driver!

Just haven't a clue of what to do, so i automatically re-install ndiswrapper and started again with the same error bcmwl5 : invalid driver! Tried other Dell broadcom driver and without any luck.

Fedora Installation :: F11 Wont Boot On Dell C610 / What To Do?

Sep 25, 2009

After installing Fedora 11 from the dvd I booted.

I was first shown a blank blue screen with a mouse pointer then back to a text login.
At the login prompt it would not accept my keystrokes. Ctrl and backspace showed as a 2 character combination but alphanumeric keystrokes did not show.

I'm using a Dell C610 laptop with 1G of memory and 20G harddrive.
I need my computer working so since I didn't have enough disk space for a dual boot I've had to reinstall Windows.

I'm keen to switch to Linux and since I payed for Fedora 11 dvd I'd like to try and get that working before I try another distro.

Fedora Installation :: Get F12 Running On My Dell D600 Laptop?

Nov 21, 2009

i am trying to get F12 running on my Dell D600 laptop and am having some SERIOUS networking issues.

i had F11 running, but the upgrade process was FUBAR'd and doesn't work so i had to do a clean installation. upon finishing that, i now have no network connectivity.

i try connecting an ethernet cable to eth0 (LAN connection), no connection. i try connecting to my wireless network using wlan0, no connection

i turn off network manager, try adding them manually same thing.

how the frick do i get this thing to connect to the world?

Edit: p.s. the only connection that i've been able to get so far is some halfway connection to my wireless, but it puts me on the 10.x.x.x subnet, and my entire internal network is on 192.168.1.x.

Edit: one other thing, every time i make changes and reboot it tells me to log into system-config-network as root and make further changes
