I am trying to install Ubunto 9.10 on my windows XP. I try to run it from the live cd. but every time i try to do this.. I get an error "Unable to find a medium containging live file system" I tried it from different cds too... so it's not an error in the cd.
I can use Ubuntu from my flash drive, but I want to install it in a partition alongside windows. When I try to do this, I come to an 'allocate drive space' window, but whatever I do I get the error message: 'No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partitioning menu.' I just don't know what this means, or what to do next. I'm loathe to ditch windows, and I don't want to have to use a flashdrive all the time.
I am getting an error message at step 5 of 8 in the installation process. I am using Ubuntu LiveCD. The caption of the error is 'No root file system' and the message itself says 'No root file system is defined.Please correct this from the partitioning menu.' I enclose a screenshot of this. I had also problems with booting Ubuntu and Windows after installing Ubuntu to an external hard disk so I probably have to also create a new boot menu (may be it is differently called, 'grub' possibly, I am not really sure).
i made a live usb stick with a original live iso image of f10 following carefully instructions of fedora support comunity once i finished i had tested it and i had the same problem (warning can not find root filesystem create symlink /dev/root and then exit this shell to continue the boot sequence, bash: no job control in this shell) of the following person:
I am trying to install Fedora on my computer and it boots fine but then comes up with an error it says"Warning : cannot find root file system"Create symlink /dev/root and then exit shell to continue the boot sequencebash:no job control in this shell bash-3.2# I am a completly new to all this so
I have even tried to run the Live CD and All I get is (initramfs) unable to find a medium containing a live file system.With out the CD in the drive I get, Try (hd0,0): EXT2.I have use of the second CD I made for a friend and I have a LIVE version running now.
I have a 4 core Sandy Bridge Win7-64 system running Parallels Desktop 4. I created a new VM with a CDROM connected to the 11.04 ISO. It perks for a little while showing some Ubuntu stuff then I get the console message "(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system".I don't get this. It is obviously booting from the CDROM. I'm guessing it does not like the unformatted disk. Why doesn't it offer to format the disk of start the installation prcess? Is it something else?
Background info: So I installed 11.04 32 bit and it messed my computer up therefore after trying everything I got rid of it, now I've been trying to install the 10.04 long support version from the official ubuntu website and it doesn't seem to be working. Neither the 32 bit version or the 64 bit. To convert the iso etc. etc. I used "Universal-USB-Installer-18.104.22.168" which is reccommended from the ubuntu website and it didn't work. So I tried "unetbootin-win-549" which a friend recommended to me - didn't work either.
Main problem: The menu loads up when I turn on the computer and whether I click on the install ubuntu, or try ubuntu from usb option - both go to the ubuntu screen where the dot's under "ubuntu" flash for about 2 minutes before taking me to a screen where the following message appears: Code: (initframs) unable to find a medium containing a live file system And after about 5 seconds intervals, messages similar to this appear for about 7 or 8 times:
Code: usb 1-3: device not accepting address 7. error -110 new high speed usb device using ehci_hcd and address 8 Each time they appear the parts which differ is the numbers from the text above i.e. usb 2-3....
well i was messing with the Gparted live disk and i deleted a small partition of about 6 megs (yes megs). trying to be efficient doing some cleanup of course. but when i rebooted my Fedora 10 i get the black screen saying," could not find the file system. /dev/root". ok, i am useing the fedora 10 live cd now. can i copy that file to my hard drive from the cd? or do i need to reinstall Fedora?
When I install/run a demo on my Laptop, it works perfectly fine. Though when I go into my desktop, it results in the following error: (initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system. It's autobooting off the same boot disk, I've md5'd the iso to check if it's correct but no joy.
I have tried burning a number of ISO's of 101.10 and 11.04 to DVD and intalling them on 2 of my desktop machines. I eventually see: ('initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system' The thought just occurred to me as I type this, perhaps I can only install from a CD and not a DVD?
i have one partition of 45 Gb...and other of 250 Gb in which windows 7 has been installed..i booted from ubuntu 10.10 CD and then i chose the installation option on desktop...but when i selected the partition of 45GB for installation..the error message said that "there is no root file system on the drive, set it from partition options"..
I faced a problem while installing ubuntu 10.04 on mylaptop;i downloaded the ubuntu from ubuntu official site. Problem: message coming that no media device is found for live file system. My Laptop configuration : 2.2 ghz core 2 duo processor, 320gb hdd in this matter and can let me know me how can i install ubuntu 10.04 on my laptop.
I cannot install Kubuntu (or Unbuntu) 10.4 on my husband's computer. I have spent 5 hours on this and cannot get anywhere. I am deeply frustrated. The iso I burned to CD is good (works on 2 other computers). His computer will not boot from USB, no matter what I do to the drive order in BIOS. After loading the blue screen with the Kubuntu logo on it (and the blue-white dots), the screen changes to black and shows the following text:
BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash) (initrafs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system.
He really needs to get rid of WinXP. Kubuntu is what I have on my computer (and love it!). Here is some info about his computer:
OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600 OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation
I have already read the related threads but unfortunately, none of the solutions works/ applies to my problem: Having Ubuntu 10.10 as bootable DVD, I am trying to upgrade from Jaunty. When I do so however, after selcting "Install Ubuntu 10.10" in the installer menu I get the "unable to find medium containing live file system" error. I already installed grub2 and set acpi=off, my DVD is on primary master and, obviously boots as well.
I am as much of a noob as you could be. I have trying to install ubuntu for 2 days now, I have tryed several versions and several of mint, but I always get this message ending with 'Unable to find a medium containing a live file system' when I start the installation process from the disk.
I'm new to this and I'm sure I've just gone and done something silly. I used pendrivelinux.com's live usb creator to install ubantu 11.04 on my USB. I tried booting my laptop with this, and i get an error message saying "unable to find a medium containing live file system" and I cant get any further than that. The laptop I am using is a Dell XPS with an i7 processor and 6 gigs of memory.
Started slackpkg upgrade-up and went to bed. Woke up to find the power had gone out during the night. The computer booted up, but displayed a message that said something to the effect of, "Error occurred during root file system check. You will be given the option of doing maintenance......"I can get to a command prompt, but regardless of what I do a message pops saying it can't find libblkid.so.1
the message on the title only happens with Ubuntu. In Fedora, it just stops booting from LiveCD with "WARNING: Cannot find root file system!". The rest of the symptoms are the same.I'm trying to install Fedora LiveCD on an IBM i Series notebook (model 1161-21X). It's a Celeron powered unit with RAM expanded to 512MB. It has a 10GB HDD, and an internal CD-ROM drive. Although it has two USB ports (1.1), it cannot boot from a USB drive, so no pendrive nor external CD unit solution possible.When I boot from LiveCD, it stops booting with the message above. Looking atsg, there's no CD-ROM driver loaded. Also, there's a char device for sg0, but no block device for it, so no way to mount it. It seems that the driver module has been removed from the kernel. I'm currently running Fedora Core 5 in it. This very same problem happens with any Ubuntu newer that 6 or any Fedora post 7.
Iv installed ubuntu 10.10 onto a usb 4gb pen. EVerything works fine. However I then wanted to encrypt the USB using truecrypt inside ubuntu and got an error message telling me it could not find some file. I then installed virtualbox onto the ubuntu this installed fine,i then installed windows xp and after completion clicked save the state. I then restarted ubuntu and when it loaded up again the virtualbox and windows xp had been deleted. Iv tried this twice just to make sure but same thing both times.
I am running Ubuntu 11. 04 on my 160gb HD, which is making funny noises and could be on its way out. I have in my PC a 500gb HD on which I would like to install 11.04, but, althogh the dis has installed OK on my laptop, and on my 160HD on my desktop, it will not install on my 500gbHD, everytime I try I get the message "no root file system is defined, please correct this from the partitioning menu"
