Debian :: Fresh Installed Lenny Would Not Boot

Jun 17, 2010

I downloaded and installed a fresh ISO and already installed it 3 times in my PC but after a seemingly good installation, my machine would shutdown when I try to boot my freshly installed lenny. It was a good CD. I encountered no error reports while installing but I can't understand why after I click on Debian lenny in the grub, it would act as if it were booting and then suddenly shutdown.

Ubuntu :: Cannot Boot From Live CD With Installed

Feb 20, 2011

I have Ubuntu 10.10 fully installed on my laptop, I am trying to get my main drive partitioned so I can install windows as well, only problem is that I can't do that without using my live CD to unmount the drive. Heres the big problem, my CD just wont boot. when I try to boot from it nothing happens and my computer just starts up as normal as if there was no CD in the first place. I have set my CD drive as my main boot device in BIOS so I know thats not the problem, and I have also tried using an external USB drive to boot from with the same results. I used the same drives and CD to do the install just a few days ago so I'm fairly certain that they are not the problem. The only thing that I can think of that might be causing trouble is that when I installed I got a black screen on my first boot (caused by my nvidia drivers apparently)and had to edit my GRUB a little to fix it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot Without Live CD ?

Apr 5, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 fom a Live CD. My system is a Dell Optiplex 745 that originally had Windows XP installed. Ubuntu is the only OS. Windows XP was removed.

The sytem appears to be running normaly.

When I shutdown (not restart) and then power cycle the computer, I see the Dell splash screen then I get the message: "Errorauto-sensing secondary master hard disk drive. Strike F! key to continue, F2 to run the setup." F1 repeats the message. F2 enters the BIOS setup but does not lead to a fix.

If I place the Live CD in the tray and boot from that, I get to the Ubunt install directory.

If I click "Check disc for defects", then run the check. (I can even interupt the check without completing by hitting ESC), then the system reboots.

I see the Dell Splashscreen.
I see the Ubuntu Live CD menu
I choose "Boot from first hard disk"
Then Ubuntu loads perfectly. I enter my username's passord.
The system runs fine until the next time I shutdown.

How do I get the system to boot directly without needing the LiveCD?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot - Cannot Do From Live CD (10.10) / Enable This?

Dec 31, 2010

I've been dual booting 10.10(with Windows7) for about a month. Today is the first time I've encountered a serious problem.

This morning, nothing functioned properly after trying to open up several programs. The computer seemed to be "frozen", although the mouse was working fine.

I decided to reboot, but then encountered an even bigger problem. It failed to boot and got this message code...

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot Ubuntu / Unable To Access Root Drive From Live CD

Jul 16, 2010

Im having a serious issue with booting ubuntu 10.04, the issue being it wont boot up at all, after working so well for so long (i suspect some recent dodgy system updates are responsible) so I decided to just reinstall ubuntu from scratch again but wanted to retrieve some important files from my root device. So I am running the live desktop and I can see my previous filesystems under places but cannot mount or open my original root device where the files I want to recover are located, I receive this error msg:"Unable to mount 77 GB Filesystem.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Boot From Live USB On HP Laptop

Jul 26, 2011

A few weeks ago I installed Fedora Linux 64-bit on my HP dv4-1428ca laptop which was running Windows 7. At that time I created a Live USB using the fedora-live usb tool and it booted fine. A couple days ago I decided to try out openSUSE, so I downloaded the 64-bit live-cd image and tried to create a live usb using the SUSEStudio ImageWrite provided in the documentation. The tool kept giving me an error message, so I decided to try unetbootin instead. However, when I tried to boot the live usb on my HP laptop, it presented me with the message.

"SYSLINUX 4.04 EDD 2011-04-18 COPYRIGHT (C) 1994-2011 H. PETER ANVIN ET AL" with a blinking cursor and nothing else. I've tried a variety of alternative programs for creating live USB's (pendrivelinux, linux live usb creator, unebootin), and verified the checksum of the iso file for openSUSE 11.4 64-bit, and still was not able to get past the "SYSLINUX..." message on my HP laptop. However, the live USB does boot on the other computers in my house. Interestingly, if I create a live USB using the tool provided by Fedora, it will boot fine. However the Fedora Live USB tool cannot be used for other distros.

Apple :: Unable To Boot Mac After Trying Out Ubuntu Live Cd / Sort It?

Jun 12, 2010

I have a serious problem! I downloaded and burnt Ubuntu 10.04 and then chose it as start up volume in Snow Leopard's start up disk preference dialogue and although Ubuntu runs successfully from the cd (I'm typing from it now) I can no longer boot into OS X at all.

I have tried all of the different short cuts at boot up to no avail, even trying 2 keyboards. It insists on looking for the Ubuntu disk and if it is not in the drive comes up with an error message stating that a system disk cannot be found.

Is there any kind of tool on Ubuntu that will let me change the start up disc/interact with the Mac's efi settings? I previously had refit installed but this disappeared just before I booted the cd, is it worth using the live cd?

I tried booting from a Tiger dvd but it wouldn't let me do so, it just returned me to the ominous "System disk not found" message.

Does anyone have any kind of idea? Perhaps some kind of shell script that will reinstall refit? I'm guessing that any kind of dvd designed for PC will prob boot, any kind of OS X recovery disk compatible with MBR available?

and now it is booted, so I try to install a driver and it hangs.so I try to install the OS, and it hangs.So I try to exit and it finally gets to the next screen in the installation after I tell it to exit, but then hangs when trying to get the the next one and it will not continue.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot After Regular - Security Updates - Installed

Apr 22, 2011

A few weeks ago I did a WUBI 10.04 LTS install on a Windows XP desktop that went perfect. System ran great until this morning. I was prompted to install "Security Updates", which I allowed the system to do, but thereafter was unable to boot. What happens is at the point of selecting either Windows or Ubuntu for booting, and I choose Ubuntu, the computer goes right back into a re-boot process and brings me back to the Windows/Ubuntu boot selection prompt. It doesn't even bring me into the secondary boot level of asking which type of Ubuntu boot I want (generic, etc.). Is there a solution for this problem besides reinstalling Ubuntu?

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To [ Multi ] Boot Into Newly Installed Suse 11.2?

Mar 8, 2010

I suspect this is a 'new Grub' problem. I installed OpenSuse 11.2 from DVD into one (sda10) of several partitions (the others containing other operating systems):-

/dev/sda1 * 1 63 506016 6 FAT16
/dev/sda2 64 4865 38572065 5 Extended
/dev/sda5 64 960 7205121 7 HPFS/NTFS
/dev/sda6 961 1859 7221186 83 Linux
/dev/sda7 1860 2759 7229218+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda8 2760 3026 2144646 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda9 3027 3924 7213153+ 83 Linux
/dev/sda10 3925 4865 7558551 83 Linux

I use NT Boot Loader for the multi-booting on the basis of chain-loading the boot sector of Linux partitions. (It is not destroyed by MS re-installations; and is actually very easy to use). I also have an older Grub shell boot floppy which can do likewise:- root (hd0,x)chainloader +1 boot FWIW I found the disc partition & boot loader parts of the installation a nightmare. Difficult to know what it is going to do; and I am sure it *did* fiddle with parts I asked it to avoid. Horribly, it did *not* make me a dedicated Suse boot floppy like I checked. (This is always the safest boot option for a new install: it leaves the present boot system intact, and provides an independant way of loading your latest. You can refine things later). I had also checked to have the boot sector on the *root partition*.

I have never been able to get into the Suse. NT Loader does not like the partition boot sector. Nor does (an older) Grub from its boot floppy. I have tried the DVD in 'system repair' mode, when it finds things wrong and corrects them, same next time... It offers a way of directly booting a selected system; that did not work.

Any suggestions? I can provide more precise error msgs, but it is tedious; and system repair from DVD dicey. I feel that *the partition boot sector is not being properly set up*.And I want to be able to make a dedicated boot floppy; how? I have an identical problem with Ubuntu, which makes me think it is related to the 'new' Grub.

Debian :: Just Installed Lenny - Only Resolution 640x480

Just upgraded from Etch and now I'm stuck at 640x480 resolution. Xorg.conf doesn't show any display modes, and xrandr gives the only resolution as 640x480. The laptop is a Toshiba Tecra 730XCDT. I know its a doorstop, but 800x600 worked fine under Etch. Anyone know how to to change it back? It's really hard to look at right now.

Debian Installation :: Just Installed Lenny And Now Clock Is All Screwed Up

Nov 1, 2010

During the installation the installer asked me if my clock was set to UTC. I didn't know what that meant so I said yes. Now whenever I boot into Lenny it messes up the time of day, and since I dual boot with puppy and knoppix on this machine, the time of day is messed up in those systems also. Any idea how to permanently undo the damage in Lenny?

Hardware :: Get Intuos 3 Installed On Debian Lenny AMD64?

Aug 13, 2010

I at trying to get my Intuos 3 installed on Debian Lenny AMD64. I installed both the xserver-xorg-input-wacom and wacom-tools. The problem is that the tablet works like a mouse. I have to press down and move the pen for it to work. In Windows, I can just hover over the tablet without making contact and it will move the cursor. Also, it isn't calibrated to the screen.

I put "wacom" in /etc/modules. Here is my xorg.conf though

Debian Multimedia :: Just Installed Squeeze / Running Back To Lenny

Feb 6, 2011

I could not get the hardware to work with Lenny's ancient drivers, so I gave up and decided to upgrade to Squeeze.Well, the hardware works (except sound), but KDE4 is a such a disaster that I want to run not walk! all the way back to Lenny. I'm stunned that after four years of active development, this desktop still doesn't have something as basic as keyboard shortcuts or the ability to place icons where YOU want them.

The widgets frustrate me to no end. The new K menu is impossible to navigate. I'd rather hang myself than use Dolphin as a file manager. KDE4 gives me more notifications than MS Windows' crapware. And it's UGLY !!! The "Oxygen" theme makes me want to tear my eyeballs out.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Install Kubuntu 10.4 - Unable To Find A Medium Containing A Live File System

Aug 15, 2010

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

Not having a firefox folder I installed using /usr/lib/mozilla/plugin . But the plugin has an X attached to the respective icon in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins.

[URL] This website seems to offer the solution to my problem, I will need help in undoing my previous steps or in removing the incorrect plugin. But will I still need a firefox folder or directory as I have on the other machine? I have a K7S5A PRO MB and Athlon Xp 1800 + processor.
