Sep 22, 2009

I just downloaded OpenSuse 11.1 64 bit live cd from it's official site.I have live usb creater in my xp box , with the help of which I successfully created live USB for fedora 11 earlier. Now the problem is whenever I try to create live usb using Opensuse live ISO image after extracting all files to usb , it gets failed.The same thing is happening with OpenSolaris 11 live cd iso image. Does this mean that live usb creater I have, was only foe Fedora distros?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Get A Vista Box To Recognize Live CD Or Live USB

Sep 8, 2010

I've done a good few ubuntu installations for friends and colleagues and now my Dad wants in on the action. His PC is more than capable of running ubuntu 32 bit BUT I've hit a brick wall I've never come across before. I've burnt a CD image of the 10.04 iso from [URL] on my ubuntu box and for some reason, his PC just won't boot from it. If I select the option to manually select the boot source, all I see is the hardware monitor telling me things like CPU temperature. As for the Live USB - nothing whatsoever. Is it possible that I've managed to corrupt the iso file somehow?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Live CD And Live Stick Not Working

Apr 28, 2011

Live CD: I dowloaded the ISO, burned it to CD, booted from this CD. It starts to load and I can see the purple background with the loading icons. Everything seems normal. But instead of ending up with the login screen, it ends up with a screen that says 'Please remove all bootup media and hit ENTER' or something like this. So I hit enter and then it shuts off my computer. That's it.

Live Stick: So I tried another option and created a stick with 'usb-creator.exe' that is on the CD. Then I start from that stick, but all I end up is a line of 'Syslinux bla bla copyright 20xx-2011'. That's it. Then it does nothing anymore. The cursor is blinking, but no prompt or whatsoever and keyboard input doesn't do anything.

Now something weird: When I insert Live CD and Live Stick at the same time and then boot my computer, then it boots into Ubuntu. Obviously it loads the first parts from CD and then the rest from stick. Because when I'm then in Ubuntu and try to format the stick, it says it can't do so, because there's system files from that stick in use.

General :: Getting A Fedora 12 Live Usb Walk-through For Xp?

Apr 23, 2010

i'm trying to transition. Mainly because I'm starting to hate windows... Anyways, I have a 4GB PNY attache. Just recently, I downloaded the live usb creator, and downloaded all the components for a live usb running version 12 of Fedora. I noticed that, after completion of the download, the components written to my USB seemed far too few. At the time, my USB contained the following:

a boot folder, with olpc.fth a folder entitled EFI containing another boot folder, with the second folder holding various files. and then a 16KB file entitled GPL.when I tried to boot the live USB, nothing came up and it booted XP just like normal. afterwards, I rebooted it, taking care to check the defaults on my BIOS settings. It says that it enables booting of live USBs, so I have no real reason to question the defaults.

General :: Fedora 13 Live CD And HDD Install Won't Boot?

Sep 14, 2010

I installed a copy of Fedora 13 onto my HDD yesterday and everything went fine until, for some reason, it stopped working. (Got stuck at the white bar while booting up). Well, I wasn't sure what the problem was so I decided to run the live CD again (which *is* a good CD, unless it somehow managed to destroy itself since yesterday) and I get "Could not mount root filesystem," sleeping forever. Hm.I haven't changed any of the hardware, and all the connections seem to still be good, so, I dunno... Any ideas on what could be the problem? Thanks in advance for any input.:UPDATE:Now my computer simply displays a list of repeating errors, each one like:Quote:

ata1.00: failed commnad: read DMA
ata1.00: [ABRT]

General :: No Hwbrowser For Fedora 12 Live Cd - Can't Be Found

Aug 19, 2010

I created a Fedora 12 live-usb. Want to use it to discover hardware compatibility on PC's that are candidate for Linux. I tried to "yum install hwbrowser" while in a live-usb session and I get a message that hwbrowser can't be found. What gives? Is hwbrowser no longer available? On another machine I ran hwbrowser and found that the answer on the video driver from hwbrowser is different than from the command line.

hwbrowser yields >>>> driver: i915

the answer I received from the command line interface >>>>> grep Chipset /var/log/Xorg.0.log driver: i810.

General :: Boot Fedora Live CD Iso From A Hard Drive?

Nov 11, 2010

I tried to use Grub to boot the Fedora 14 Live CD from its ISO image (SHA256 verified) on the hard drive. I put Fedora-14-x86_64-Live-Desktop.iso in the root directory of the FAT32 partition D: (sda5) then extracted isolinux from this ISO, and put it on D: I followed the isolinux.cfg file, and wrote a menu.lst as follows:

title Fedora 14 Live CD
root (hd0,4)
kernel (hd0,4)/isolinux/vmlinuz0 root=live:CDLABEL=Fedora-14-x86_64-Live-Desktop rootfstype=auto ro liveimg quiet rhgb
initrd (hd0,4)/isolinux/initrd0.img

However Grub told me: No root device found. Boot has failed. Sleeping forever. Here's the contents of isolinux.cfg:

General :: Fedora 11 - Dual Boot Installation From Live CD

Oct 8, 2009

I want to dual boot Fedora 11 and Windows Vista, and the last time I tried I deleted my Windows Vista (big no no). So, I've made a partition of about 30GB, and I'm trying to go through the installation (from the live CD), but I don't know quite what to do? If I select Shrink existing disk, it doesn't let me do it for any amount that I put in, by the way.

General :: How To Perform Root Level Commands - Fedora - Live Media

Jul 21, 2011

I need to use Live Media to make changes to a hard disk drive. I tried to sudo to no effect.

Seems like it would be troublesome to authorize root access on Live Media or have sudo allow commands such as pvcreate,lvcreate,vgcreate, especially if the hard disk is not encrypted.

Ubuntu / Apple :: The Default Option Is "live" Bla Bla Bla But In Case Of Problems Use "Live Video=ofonly"?

Apr 22, 2011

I've got an old iMac g3 on which I'd like to install Ubuntu Dapper Drake.Here's the problem:I insert the disk in the computer.Keep pressing "C" till this comes out:Quote:"The default option is "live" bla bla bla but in case of problems use "Live video=ofonly"I write "Live".The orange progress bar appears, but the the screen becomes black.I still can hear sounds: the classic ubuntu log-in music, but I can not see anything: I guess the live has started, but the screen is just black.By pressing CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE I'm able to come back to shell.

Once rebooted, I try "Live video=ofonly".Again the orange progress bar, but then this message comes outQuote:"Failed to start the X Server, It is likely that is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the server output to diagnose the problem?"Even if I dont select anything, some random words appear in the screen, too fast for me to read them.Then I'm back to shell.I read here (that the problem is caused by Xorg and that the solution can but editing his configuration by using Quote:sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.confBut I just don't know when to do that: Ubuntu is not installed yet and there is only MacOS 9.2 on that machine.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Live CD Failure - Goes To The "Log In" Page And Not The Live CD Page On Running

Aug 22, 2010

Just got back to attempting to play with 10.04 using its Live CD. It consistently goes to the "Log In" page and not the Live CD page on running. I saw a Post specifying a F key to be pressed on boot-up to get to the desired starting point some time ago, but did not write it down. Some advice did say press Any Key but this does not seem to do the job. Tried to use the search function here but no joy. Can anyone remember which F key? Note that as a check, I tried to use 9.10 Live CD and this worked fine, so it is not a machine problem.

Fedora Installation :: Can't Run 10 Live CD

Mar 13, 2009

Using live CD to check out Fedora10 on WindowsVista, IntelPentiumDual E2180, NTFS. Used Power2Go (default program) to burn ISO to CD. Shouldn't be the problem as I used it to download Fedora6 and those work fine. Downloaded and burned twice in case problem was faulty CD. Boot hangs up after initial screen indicates VMlinuz and image are loading, and graphic progress bar runs through. I get blank screen with blinking cursor, I can enter text all I want to. but no response to any commands. When I exit, shut down screen displays messages that look like I was totally running a linux system.

P.S. Found solution in other forum, press esc during progress bar load, now boot hangs up after loading cups.Going to check out boot edit options on wiki.

Fedora Installation :: Live CD Won't Run.

Jun 17, 2009

I've been trying to install Fedora 11 all afternoon and have given up. The machine that I am installing on was running Fedora 10 with no problems whatsoever. I tried to install using the regular i386 DVD and it went partially through the install and crashed. I then cleared the hard drive and left two partitions on it (two ext3's). Still no go. Then I reformatted the hard drive, cleared the MBR and turned the machine into a DOS machine. Fedora 11 still wouldn't install.

The Live CD won't run. It errors out with a nouveau error. I saw the sticky concerning that issue. I still maintain that a system which supports nVidia in version 10 should support it in version 11 especially when it's on the list of supported devices (it's a GeForce 3.) I realize that a product can't support hardware indefinitely, but the device I have is on the list, so it should support it.As I type this message, Fedora 10 is installing without a problem. Fortunately, I was smart enough to backup my entire hard drive before starting this fiasco, so I'll be fine when I restore. No harm, no foul I guess.Very disappointing from a distro that I really, really love and want to maintain. I would have thought that the systems people would have put a better effort into the installation program.
