Installation :: Burned Live C.d Of Debian 6 - No Option To Install

Feb 8, 2010

I burned a live c.d of debian 6 today, it works really great but there is no option to install it. I've done lots of installs off c.ds where it says " install" right at boot up, as on option. is there a way to install this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Remove Install Option On Boot Custom Usb Live?

Jul 15, 2010

I used Ubuntu customization kit to "build" my own Ubuntu. It works as a charm. Completely recommended.

I install that custom ubuntu 10.04 on a 2gb pendrive, using usb-creator-gtk and it worked also good.

The only thing is bodering me, is when I boot that pendrive, it appear a window asking if I want to install the OS or if I want to use it live.

How can I remove that window on boot?

I want to boot directly on desktop...that way will be perfect!

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.........

Debian Installation :: Cannot Install Squeeze Live DVD

Sep 15, 2010

A Linux user for about 10 years, distro hopping for half of them. Finally found peace with PCLinuxOS (great distro), and MintLinux. When Mint went over to Debian, I thought why not try the original, so here I am.Booted the dvd, checked everything was working well (excellently, actually), and started the install over an existing PCLinuxOS system (dual booting with XP). First time installed while inside the gnome system, from the desktop icon, second and subsequent times from the welcome screen after boot (only text modes were available).In all cases, everything goes fine until I partition and install the packages. Partitioning is no secret to me, unless there is a "Debian way" of doing it: went through "guided partitioning," and chose the existing PCLinuxOS partitions, 37 Gb for /, ext3 (tried ext4 later with same results), and 2 Gb for swap, both on sda (sda1 and sda5). This is a full hard-disk, just for Linux. The other disk is for XP (sdb).

Tried formatting existing partitions, erasing contents of disk, and keeping as is. In all cases, when partitioning is done, the system installation fires up and I see all packages being transferred (up to 100%). Then I have a pop-up window telling me to continue to package manager, which I do, but then I get a message saying that I am trying to install on an "unclean target," over an existing installation (even after fully erasing the disks). It asks whether to continue or not and, whatever I do, I'm taken back to system install again, and see the progress go up to 100% and the same question again.

If I go back to the install menu and ignore the message, jumping to installing grub, I get an error message saying that grub install has failed, and that's it. I can't progress further because of these error messages.If I ignore all and boot without the live dvd, I get a prompt and nothing else, and I can't even use XP. Basically, I'm stuck unless I install another distro again to have a working system.First searched this forum and Google to get answers to this problem, but couldn't find anything applicable to my case.

Debian Installation :: Install From Squeeze Live CD / DVD

Jan 2, 2011

I burned an .iso of a recent Squeeze Live DVD - KDE edition. I was checking it out but I'm not sure it's reliable for installing.I was wondering if anyone has tried it or could comment.I noticed a few things that was a bit disconcerting.One, there were a lot of 'question marks' in the kickback menu.Is that normal?Two, when you (I) try to reboot the system or otherwise 'leave' the live state, it doesn't reboot properly.Some distributions will 'shut down' and then give you a prompt for taking out your CD or DVD and then there is some script or program that reboots the machine for you. But, the Debian Live DVD I used didn't do that. It's a recent one, dated Dec. 20.What happened is that it just looped back and re-started.There was no prompt or even much of a delay. I couldn't open the optical drive tray at any time.I had to cold restart the machine so I could take the DVD out.

I was disappointed since I thought it is a good project and a worthwhile venture to try and have a live media option for installing the later editions of Debian such as Squeeze or if they can keep up progress, whatever edition it's at.I am a bit hesitant to try this version for a true install so I am wondering what others say.I thought I should go for the 'desktop Squeeze/Testing AMD-64-KDE' CD ISO instead?There's no live media but I have tried the live DVD so it looked okay other than the two issues mentioned.

OpenSUSE Install :: Should There Be Option To Download ISO Option For CD Installation

Jul 18, 2010

when I go to download 11.3 I am presented with the installation medium for a DVD installation with a button that says download DVD. Should there be an option to download an ISO option for a CD installation on this page along with the DVD version? Some of our older machines can only read CD's with a max size of 500+ megs.

Debian Installation :: Install Live To A 4 GB Flash Drive?

Apr 12, 2011

I am trying to install Debian Live to a 4 GB flash drive. I am using UNetBootin to extract this (debian-live-6.0.1-i386-gnome-desktop.iso) file to a FAT32 partition on my flash drive. It installs fine, and shows me the SysLinux menu fine, but when i choose live(or anything else) it says"Invalid or Corrupt Kernel Image". I also tryed these other installers. pendrivelinux's Universal USB Installer. It gives me the same message. win32diskimager gives me a different Debian menu, but the same problem. Does anyone know what is wrong, and how to fix it. It is driving me nuts!

Ubuntu Installation :: Lubuntu 10.10 Live USB Hangs After Boot Menu Option Selected

Dec 21, 2010

I have the same problem with an Ubuntu 10.04 live CD. Whenever I attempt to boot (Lu|U)buntu from a live CD/USB, on most computers. it works just fine. However, on two computers, the live media starts off just fine with the main menu (Try Ubuntu without installing, etc.), then, when I select any option except 'Boot from First Hard Disk', after a few seconds, the CD stops spinning or the USB loses power. I'm convinced it's not a problem from the media, since it works perfectly fine on some computers.

Sysinfo:
Code:
Host Name: OWNER-PC
OS Name: Microsoftr Windows VistaT Home Premium
OS Version: 6.0.6001 Service Pack 1 Build 6001
OS Manufacturer: Microsoft Corporation

Debian Installation :: Can't Transfer Files From CD - USB Live Install Error

Jan 18, 2015

I am trying to install Debian over Kali since in order to use steam, newest version of wine and a few other things causes a change reaction that would require about two-thirds of my main os re-written with non kali files which makes me a little uneasy.

I have downloaded the debian-live-7.8.0-i386-gnome-desktop.iso from torrent from the link from debian download listings at debian.org. and I put it on a 8gb flash drive formated with gparted to a bootable fat32 partition and is listed as being /dev/sdc I installed the iso to the drive uss dd using the following code

Code: Select allsudo dd if=debian-live-7.8.0-i386-gnome-desktop.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=4M; sync

now it boots to the flash drive just fine with only the gnome3 drivers loaded by the live os isn't fully functional with my system. Ie. when I log into any of the live modes it gives me a message that it was switched to gnome3 [fallback] I am using the current version of gnome3 desktop manager installed from source on kali with out any trouble.

Also when I click the graphical installer or the installer modes from the grub i get a background image with some sort of artifiacts in the top inchish of the screen then everything but the mouse freezes. But when I go into one of the live modes and click the installer in their it opens just fine but when it starts transferring files it says that it couldn't transfer files from the cd after all the language and localization screens at the beginning.

I did find a misc page on the internet involving a cruchbang with the same problem [URL] I went to the folder in the usb drive in question and it looks like since that was originally post something has changed or it could have been a crunchbang format.

So basically I am asking did I do a step wrong should I try a different way of instillation, or do I have a corrupted image? also I am unable to use disk media due to the type of drives and disks I have access to.

OpenSUSE Install :: When It Boots First See The Welcome Screen, Then The OpenSUSE Installer, Whether Select The Live (GNOME) Option?

Sep 16, 2010

I have a SONY PCG-R505TE laptop with an external CD/DVD, it connects via what I think is a PCMCIA card, the drive came with the laptop and functions fine. I currently have Windows XP running on this laptop, but it's very slow.I downloaded openSUSE-11.3-GNOME-LiveCD-i686.iso and sucessfully burned it to a CD.I have the laptop bios set to boot from CD, and it appears to be doing that no problem. When it boots I first see the welcome screen, then the openSUSE Installer, whether I select the Live (GNOME) option, or the Installation.. it loads the kernel, and then loads the KIWI boot systemit is on the third event, waiting for CD/DVD dvices to appear... that something seems to fail... I then see Failed to detect CD/DVD or USB drivethen a rebootexception and it reboots in 120 seconds.

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?

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.

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

Apr 1, 2010

I've downloaded the

Fedora-12-x86_64-disc1.iso
Fedora-12-x86_64-disc2.iso
Fedora-12-x86_64-disc3.iso
Fedora-12-x86_64-disc4.iso
Fedora-12-x86_64-disc5.iso

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.

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.

Debian :: Apt-get Re-install-from-scratch-spare-nothing-no-excuses Option

In particular, this is with regards to freevo, but it applies to anything that can be obtained through apt-get.

How do i remove it, and re-install it, and start again from scratch? Time and again i do "apt-get delete blah", then "apt-get install blah", only to find it's exactly the same as it was in the first place, and still broken.

Why does this happen? How can i make sure everything is COMPLETELY GONE. I don't care about lost data, i don't care about lost config files, or anything. There is just one aim here - i want it to work again.

Ubuntu :: Live USB Can Disable 'format' Option?

May 23, 2010

I have a Live install of ubuntu 10.04 on a USB drive which is really handy. I've changed some things around so it's just how I like it.However, if for example I'm using a computer running windows, and I plug this USB stick in, a popup appears asking me if I want to reformat the drive. I'd much rather not have this appear because an accidental misclick would make me have to do all the work of reinstalling/customizing my USB.

I know how to turn of the popup for a particular machine, but I was wondering if it's possible to deny permissions to format the USB if it's plugged into any computer. Best case scenario would be if you were to plug the usb into any computer and click 'format' you would get a message prompting for a password first (not the one for the computer, one relative to the USB) or something like that.
