But the GMD screen is all out of place and its patchy as if my graphics card was causing some kind of error

Ubuntu Installation :: Xubuntu Live Cd Won't Boot - Hangs At A Black Screen

Mar 25, 2011

I try to boot the live CD and try xubuntu without installing, and my computer just hangs at a black screen, cuts off, then goes black and repeats. I also tried just installing with nomodeset enabled and it seemed to install fine, but it did the same thing as it does with the live cd, GRUB wouldn't even load... the computers specs [URL]

Fedora Installation :: Fresh Install Hangs On Boot / Black Screen Blinking Cursor

Aug 9, 2011

After installing Fedora 15 from LiveUSB and rebooting it just hangs on a black screen with a blinking cursor (underscore) in the top left of the screen. If it's reached grub, it isn't responding to any commands, and mashing several key combinations (such as ctrl-alt-f1) will produce a beep usually emitted only by the BIOS (hinting that it may never be making its way to grub).

The only particularly interesting thing about the install is that by default it wanted to boot itself from the MBR on my primary-master (Windows) disk. Instead I selected the option to boot from "the first partition in sdb1", which is my primary-slave (Linux) disk, (the first partition being /boot). This way I can change which OS boots by changing the boot order in my BIOS, and so avoiding bootloader wars.

Fedora Installation :: F13 Live CD Hangs During Boot ?

May 28, 2010

I currently dual-boot Windows Vista and Suse 11.2 on my Gateway desktop machine. I'd like to try out Fedora in a triple-boot situation.

My trouble is that the F13 Live CD hangs during boot. I've checked the hashes of the downloaded ISO files, and done burns on multiple media. During booting with the Live CD, my box hangs and I have to use the physical power button to turn off the box.

I've tried the 64-bit KDE spin (my preferred choice), the 64-bit GNOME version, and also the 32-bit KDE spin, and all of them hang at the same point. Removing the "quiet" boot option shows that it hangs after setting up my built-in card reader. When I installed Suse 10.3 on this same machine, I had to use the flags "acpi=off" and "brokenmodules=pata_it821x". Would the syntax be the same if I wanted to try with those boot options with the F13 Live CD?

Using the ISO files in VirtualBox inside my working Suse install works just fine.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.10 Live Cd Worked Flawlessly Install Hangs At Boot?

Oct 12, 2010

My live cd worked flawlessly.

After I installed it, is another story I chose to include the suggested .mp3 codec, and to install updates at the same time.

Cmos and hardware all inits fine, then I get several seconds of a cursor, followed by the nice "ubuntu" title with little orange squares under it.

Interestingly, the squares do not cycle until I hold down the power button.

Searching for "10.10 boot" somehow returned zero results. ??

Fedora Installation :: Live CD Hangs After Boot Choice?

Jan 1, 2010

I was using Ubuntu 9.10, until I got a new graphics card (Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT). After I got that upgrade, Ubuntu no longer supported that card for some reason, so I decided to try Linux Mint since it was a close relative to Ubuntu. Still no support for the video card.

I've always wanted to try Fedora so I decided to grab the x86_64 live cd and burn it. I stick it into my disk drive and it boots where it shows me the options to "Boot" "Verify and Boot" "Boot from Hard Disk" and one other option.

I tried the Boot option, and after selecting that, everything stalls, and my display turns off (not the entire monitor, just the display). I tried Verify and Boot, and still no luck.

I have also tried the i686 live cd and the same issue. It can not be the way I am burning it, cause I've gotten other live cd's to work with the same method of burning. Is it that Fedora does not support the card?

I am trying to get the GNOME version up and running.

Fedora Installation :: Live Installation Hangs Up At Initial Login?

Dec 2, 2010

I downloaded the .ISO for Fedora Core 14 Live, with the intention of installing it to my HDD.

I burn the .ISO with no reported problems.

I boot to the installation CD and can get to the point where it asks me to Login (a timer is also going down for Automated Login).

Once I click "Login", nothing else ever happens.

I can hear the disc spinning in the drive and it's trying to load something, but it never does.

I thought that maybe my older (2003) laptop might just be slow, so I allowed it to do whatever it seemed to be doing overnight while I slept.

Well, I woke up this morning and it was still doing the same exact thing with no results.

---------- Post added at 05:54 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:51 PM ----------

Oh, and I intend to dual-boot. I have already made a partition using Norton Partition Magic. It's NTFS filesystem for now, but I figured the Fedora Installation would give me an option to use that partition anyway - NTFS or not (meaning, it would wipe the NTFS file system and use whatever it is that Fedora Core uses). Am I mistaken in assuming this?

Ubuntu Installation :: 64 Bit Hangs On Install, Only See Splash Screen?

I get to the ubuntu splash screen with the 5 dots underneath it and it looks like it's trying to run for several minutes. After the several minutes, the screen simply goes black and I can't do anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: Login Screen Hangs After Install?

Jan 17, 2011

I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 on a vostro 1000 laptop using standard configuration.I repartitioned the whole disk for Ubuntu. Now, when starting up Ubuntu, it appears to log in fine, but right near the end of the theme and before the desktop loads, it hangs, repeating a slice of the intro music over and over again. What could be causing this problem?Note: On every ubuntu disk I use, it also says that modules/..../Kernel something is missing from the disk quickly before booting the live session.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Install Hangs On Purple Screen With Icons

May 31, 2010

Ubuntu and right now I am running it inside Windows. I burnt it onto a cd so I could install it onto my 2nd harddrive. I know the cd is fine. When I boot off the cd a purple screen loads up with some weird symbols at the bottom looks like a picture of a battery = and then a picture of a stick figure man. If I hit f6 I can get to the option screen. I've tried using noapci, nomodeset, disabling the framebuffer, and vga=normal. None of them work as soon as I hit enter to start installing Ubuntu it just sits there on the menu screen and never does anything.

I then tried a ubuntu-studio dvd I had handy just to see if this would work - and it started installing as expecting, I cancelled it after a while. how to get lubuntu running?

Ubuntu :: Jaunty Live CD Not Booting / Screen Hangs When The Loader Reaches About 10% In The Blue Bar?

May 19, 2009

For the first time, I booted up a Kubuntu live CD on a laptop (850 MHz, 40 GB HD, 256 MB RAM). Earlier releases (< 9.04) boot up fine but it does not. It hangs up right on the splash screen and I can view nothing but a blinking cursor on the console screen. The screen hangs when the loader reaches about 10% in the blue bar. No further information can be provided when there is just a blinking cursor at the console. The CPU shows no activity. The CD boots up fine on other computer. How do I go on installing Kubuntu? Is it a good option to use the Ubuntu Server CD and install all the Kubuntu desktop software on it once it is installed (Server edition is not live disk, and I do not have an alternate install CD)?

OpenSUSE Install :: Installation Screen Jumbled With 11.4 Live KDE CD?

Mar 10, 2011

I'm having a lot of trouble installing OpenSUSE 11.4 on a home PC. Currently the PC has Windows Vista and I've convinced the owner to let me put Linux on it. When I boot from the Live KDE CD, though, it fails to function properly. I can see the screen where I choose whether I'd like to install, boot from the CD or boot from the hard drive. No matter what I choose, the screen afterwards is unreadable - it's all kinds of jumbled, unreadable lines. The problem appears even if I change the resolution to all kinds of other resolutions. If I go into text mode and say that I'd like to install, it goes through a startup routine that looks like I'm starting the computer completely in text mode. Afterwards it wants me to log in, and I can logon as root and perform commands, but I've got no way that I can see of installing it on my system's hard drive so that I can have it boot OpenSUSE from the HD.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Black Screen On The Live CD Or When Trying To Install?

Apr 30, 2010

I want to make a clean install of 10.04 instead of just upgrading from Karmic.However when I run the boot cd I get the new Ubuntu boot up screen (with the five dots) but after a while I get a black screen and at the same time the cd stops running in the drive.The only thing I can do is pressing down the start button until my computer shuts down.I do get the menu to choose to run the live cd or make a new installation, but whatever I choose, I end up with the black screen.

I'm trying to install on an older IBM Thinkpad R50e, with 500 mb RAM so I figured that it was simply just too old to run the new ubuntu. The strange thing however is that the cd is actually running fine from within my Virtual Machine. This I don't get

Fedora Installation :: F13 Live CD Hangs At "f" Graphic?

Oct 9, 2010

I was trying to do a fresh install of Fedora 13 using a live CD on my 7-year old laptop. However, the installation failed during creation of home folder, citing some disk issue.Now, when I try to reboot my comp with the live CD, the boot screen hangs at the "f" graphic. What could be wrong? Is there anything I can do to reboot with the live CD and also install Fedora 13?Also, is there a way to fix corrupt disk sectors or skip them during installation?

Fedora Installation :: Installing - Live Cd Goes To Dark Screen

Feb 24, 2009

I'm kind of new to linux, but even I shouldn't have this much trouble, because I've been reading faqs like crazy and tutorials, but I just don't understand what's going on. I'm installing Linux Mint on my old machine now and it's installing good, but I try to install Fedora 10 and I've been having problems. It works fine in VMware, but when I try to load it from a live CD to install into the drive, on the initizialize process it say's "failed ata something something", then it goes to a bar and then it goes to a black screen and it hangs there. I did 5 md5check sums on the same iso, I'm not sure what's going on?

However, I try to use my 10.10 Live CD, and even with "nomodeset" I get nowhere. If I hit the ESC key, I can read "stdin error 0" or something along those lines, then it shows many repeating messages with "logical blocks"...
