OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 Final Will Not Install From DVD Or Live CD's

Jul 20, 2010

I am currently running 11.2 on my PC and have been doing so since it was released with no problems. When I try and install from my DVD (MD5sum and media verified) all goes well until the installer gets to the "searching for linux partitions" bit and then it dies completely. I have tried installing from a KDE and GNOME live CD and they both boot cleanly and load a usable desktop in both cases with internet access and all my Windows and openSUSE 11.2 partitions visible and browsable.

When I try to install from either of these discs Yast2 gets loaded and then just dies. I am at a total loss as to how to progress any further. Incidentally Fedora 13 won't install either so I suspect it is a kernel issue as my hardware has not changed since I installed openSUSE 11.2. I have been using SUSE since 10.0 and have never has any problems installing before now.

I downloaded the live cd iso and installed it on usb using this command (while it was unmounted):ddif=open SUSE-11.2-KDE4-LiveCD-i686.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=4M...I then restarted and it loads into a main openSUSE screen, I choose the "OpenSUSE 11.2" and it starts loading. Then it shows the progress abr under the gecko guy and it starts to load, that moves to a few diff. places on the screen and then it goes black. Any ideas?

OpenSUSE Install :: Live CD BOOT/INSTALL With HCL K38 Laptop

Mar 16, 2011

I am using an HCL k38 pdc laptop and I am unable to boot KDE live cd of opensuse 11.4. The system boots to a graphical screen where a progress bar is shown. the progress bar proceeds to about 90% and then my system hangs. ALl I can see on my screen is that graphical image with suse logo and progress bar. Though my mouse works and I can move it all around the desktop but if I try pressing any key (CAPS/NUM LOCK/SCROLL LOCK) i dont see any LED notification for that. this concludes that the system is hanged.

Key board has no issue as I can use it in Windows.

I tried to boot the lice cd in text mode and it worked very fine from there I installed the system on to my HDD in dual boot mode with windows XP. But after installation when I boot opensuse from HDD it stucks at the same position.

I think this issue is with Nvidea graphics card as when the system boots I see an error message that says that the RAM has an address conflict with VGA ROM.

How can I use opensuse. I have even tried ubuntu 10.10 but it also hangs while booting or after booting. So far I have been able to manage only Sabayon Linux working on this machine however the ubuntu 9.10 was working on this system and it also started behaving similarly after I upgraded it to ubuntu 10.04.

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Install - Live CD From Usb Stick

Jul 11, 2011

I have done a big big mistake (I could beat myself up for that) with my netbook and now I am sitting here, not getting openSUSE installed on it.

I wanted to try another netbook linux and installed (more by accident than intentionally) Easy Peasy Linux. This system is not bad, but cannot work with the wireless adapter in my netbook. However, I then wanted to install openSUSE 11.4 again, which ran fine on the netbook. But the install always gets stuck in different stages and I donīt know why.

Sometimes a failure message comes up: "filesystem is read only, rebooting in 120 seconds", but I am not really sure if this is for the harddrive or the usb stick. In other occasions, the bootprocess until install gets stuck at "starting KDM". Nothing happens then... thats it.

I already have reformatted the usb stick and copied the openSUSE Live CD via Imagewriter on it again... no success.

So now I am really confused, because I donīt know if there is something wrong with the harddrive? Or is it the stick itself? How can I find this out?

If it is the harddrive, how can I at least refomat it? Remember: no CD or DVD drive, just USB stick...

How can I find out if the image on the stick is ok? I already tested the install media and it said: "checksum ok"

OpenSUSE Install :: Comment On 11.4 Install From Live CD

Jun 26, 2011

I tried installing 11.4 from the live CD on a new motherboard (ASRock N68C-S UCC) and the very first screen (license agreement) comes out so garbled that I can not read anything from it. I tried to run rather then install from the live CD, with the same result.

Hitting F3 and changing the resolution to 800x600 still did not fix this. I find it surprising, because I would expect the installation process to use low quality graphics and therefore not be too bothered about the specifics of the graphics chipset (NVidia GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a in this case).For reference the machine has 1 GB ram.There is no such problem with the 11.3 live CD, which is what I ended up using. So no problem in terms of getting the PC up and running.

Installation :: Can't Install Ubuntu 10.10 Final On My PC / Fix It?

Dec 18, 2010

Somehow I've been really unlucky with Ubuntu 10.10. When I run the CD choose any of the three options offered by Grub, the system just waits for 20-30 seconds and gives me a screen with Green squares.

Here's a video I made when 10.10 was in beta. The problem is still the same even in the final version.

I have an Intel Dual Core 2.0Ghz PC with 8GB ram and an Nvidia GeForce 6200 graphics card. I have Ubuntu 10.04 on it which installs and works fine. its only the 10.10 that I have this problem with.

Any ideas out there?

Ubuntu :: Live CD Lucid Final?

May 2, 2010

When i insert the Live CD, whether I choose memory test, try without installing or install Ubuntu, the computer seems to continue to load without a signal going to the monitor, as if a frequency or resolution unsupported by the card or monitor was chosen.

I had a similar issue with 9.10, but this only happened after the system was installed when you got to the login screen. I can't find a 'safe graphics' option on this live CD as I could on Karmic. Are there any cheat codes I can use to enable some sort of safe graphics mode?

I am downloading the alternate installer now and going to try installing using this method. I've never done this before, do I have to setup a desktop myself using the command line with this? My computer is an Asus M2N-SLI Deluxe motherboard with 2GB RAM, a GeForce 9600GT graphics card, and a DGM 23" 1920x1080 widescreen monitor connected via DVI. Also I am installing the 64 bit version, although I don't reckon this is a 64 bit only issue.

OpenSUSE Install :: NON-Live USB Install

Feb 20, 2010

Ok, so I have been successfully able to install openSUSE to my computer using a live-USB. This is well and good, but I've determined that I would really like the options given to me in a full install of the OS (as one would from a DVD). The problem is, I can't seem to figure out how to get the full install to work from the usb. I tried the exact same method as the Live-USB (win32diskimager method) and my machine boots right past the USB as if it were not bootable.

I've tried formatting the device, creating a single partition, marking it as active and installing the contents of the ISO to the drive directly. This time the USB boots, but I'm instantly informed to restart due to boot disk failure.How can I get the regular CD to boot from USB. Also, to help me understand the issue, what exactly is it that makes the LiveCD install boot?

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Install 11.04 Final Release From USB Drive?

Apr 28, 2011

I can't install Ubuntu 11.04 32bit Desktop edition on my Dell Mini 10v. I followed the instructions from the Ubuntu website and made a bootable USB drive using the universal USB installer for windows. I put the usb drive on my netbook and prompted the boot options to boot from the usb drive. Once I got to the installation screen and attempt to install ubuntu on my hard drive it goes blank for a few moments, and a wall of text floods my screen and it stops installing.

OpenSUSE Install :: Live CD On Usb Key ?

May 11, 2011

I have made many attempts at getting the live CD to boot from a usb key with no success. I have read the various tutorials, including a kiwi method. There seems to be something missing.

What (and where) is the executable file that boots the system? I used the Imagewriter to create my key. It has a syslinux.conf file but I see no executable called syslinux. I see nothing in the boot folder that is executable either.

The tutorial that has the imagewriter method has little detail. The kiwi tutorial has exquisite detail but it applies to kiwi and I can't figure out how to "translate" it. There must be something very simple that I am missing. I tried this on 2 different machines and it failed 2 different ways.

OpenSUSE Install :: Run The Live Version Of 11.0 From A CD?

Mar 23, 2010

When trying to run the Live version of OpenSuSE 11.0 from a CD, I can run from the command line, only. No graphics at all. No error messages. Tried some of the other suggested fixes on other threads, but nothing worked. The machine in an old HP OmniBook.

What I really want to do is reformat the HDD and install OpenSuSE on it, but the machine has no DVD drive, so I downloaded an iso image of the live version of 11.0 and burned a bootable CD. It boots, but I can get no X-Window, or the KDE desktop. I'd really like to convert this old machine from Windows 98 to Linux, but seem to have hit a brick wall.

OpenSUSE Install :: Cannot Boot From KDE 4.4 Live Cd

Apr 5, 2010

Recently I have strange problem in my notebook HP2230s. I cannot boot from KDE 4.4 Live cd. I also try LXDE openSUSE 11.2 live cd, same result. I verify the MD5 and all the iso download is ok. I try the same cd to another laptop, Dell ATG, it works flawlessly.

So I thought there is a problem with my laptop BIOS. I download the new BIOS from HP and install it but the problem persist.

I have another live cd image that I made using susestudio, no problem with this one. I can boot it as live cd in my notebook.

OpenSUSE Install :: KDE Live CD Won't Boot

Jul 30, 2010

I'm trying to boot the KDE 11.3 Live CD and it hangs during the boot. With splash=off I see

/etc/initscript: line 77: /etc/sysconfig/ulimit: Input/Output error then a bunch of different Id numbers, for example...

Code: INIT Id 4 respawning too fast: disabled for 5 minutes and finally a few lines starting with a number (for example [100.676357]) and ending with

Code: [100.676357] lost page write due to I/O error on loop 0 and then it just loops between the respawn and write errors, as far as I can tell.

My system has a 1.8Hz processor, 1G of RAM and an integrated nVidea GeForce 6150 card, and I'm dual booting sidux and XP. I've checksummed the ISO file. I tried first with a 1G USB drive (Transferring the ISO via dd as per the openSUSE instructions) and then with a CD (burned at the lowest speed). I also tried the CD on a Gateway laptop running just XP and got the same errors. Boot parameters I tried were noapic, pci=nomsi, acpi=off, with no difference.

OpenSUSE Install :: No GUI In Live Environment?

Aug 29, 2010

I'm working on making a system in suse studio, but I can't get into the GUI through normal means (as in using the live DVD) because it gives me a console. When i type "startx" i get an error based on signal 11 (or something)

I type kdm, and nothing happens. What should I do?

(p.s, this is with the USB raw image "burned" on. The DVD needs me to use no APIC)

OpenSUSE Install :: Live CD On USB Doesn't Boot / What To Do?

Dec 19, 2009

Trying to booting an Acer TM 8371 Notebook using USB flash media and the openSUSE-11.2-KDE4-LiveCD-x86_64 image.

After the BIOS greeting messages nothing more happens. System seems to hang. When removing the USB memory stick the system continues on trying to boot from the hdd.

When using the openSUSE-11.2-NET-x86_64 image, system detects the USB stick properly and retrieves it's ip address. Since there is no PXE system set up, installation of course stops thereafter.

What's the difference between both images? I recognized that when using the openSUSE-11.2-KDE4-LiveCD-x86_64 image a partition with type linux is created on the USB stick. When using the openSUSE-11.2-NET-x86_64 image fdisk says:

"Disk /dev/sda doesn't contain a valid partition table".

OpenSUSE Install :: Live USB Stick Does Not Boot / Fix It?

Feb 8, 2010

I've followed the instructions at Live USB stick - openSUSE for creating a bootable USB stick. I have attempted this with both a 32 bit and 64 bit image. Unfortunately my system will not boot up the stick - it just loads my hard disk as normal.

Background info
1. I have checked the iso images against the checksum and they are ok;
2. I have used the same images to create bootable CDs which work fine;
3. My machine IS capable of booting a USB stick - by copying syslinux onto the stick, the machine does see the stick
4. The order of boot in BIOS is stick first. Again, I have proven this works ok using a utility called USB Boot Tester.

I am unsure what to try next. I recall reading on this forum there was a problem booting from USB stick if the computer also had a CD drive. That was in an early version of LiveCD. Could the problem still be extant? I can't find the actual thread unfortunately otherwise I would link to it.
