Ubuntu :: Boot Error "You Need To Load The Kernel First"

Apr 5, 2010

I am using kubuntu karmic 9.10. Yesterday night I did installed/uninstalled various things and unfortunately something went wrong.

Now the boot menu shows 2.6.31-20 generic/recovery, 2.6.31-19 generic/recovery and one more including windows one in the last.

*ALL* of the menu options, including recovery ones are producing an error saying:
"You need to load the kernel first"

My skills are limited on linux domain and I installed kubuntu using disk image.

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel 2.6.28.1 On 9.10 Grub Kernel Load Error

Jan 4, 2010

Over the past few days I have been trying to install an older kernel (kernel 2.6.28.1) on ubuntu 9.10 64-bit WUBI installation. I compiled, installed, and updated my grub for the kernel. When I reboot, the grub menu correctly gives me the option of booting into the older kernel but when I do so I receive the following error message:

error: you need to load the linux kernel first.

I am at a complete loss on how to fix this. I even downgraded grub but I still get the same error.

The message returned is

Ubuntu / Apple :: Auto-load Apple Wireless Keyboard?

Apr 22, 2010

This morning I bought an Apple wireless keyboard and I got it connected through Blueman. It works like a charm, but I have on problem;

When I log out I can log back in by typing in my password. However, when I restart the computer it seems that bluetooth is not loaded yet and I cannot enter my password. So I have to log in using my wired keyboard, and then disconnect & re-connect to my wireless keyboard using blueman before I am able to use the wireless keyboard.

Is there any way that I can already auto-load bluetooth and connect to my keyboard before I log in?

Ubuntu / Apple :: Error - Failed To Initialize The NVIDIA Kernel Module

May 1, 2010

I keep getting a warning messaged almost every time I reboot about Ubuntu running in low-graphics mode on a Macbook 5,1. This has been happening since Lucid Beta 1.

Quote:

Failed to initialize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please see the
system's kernel log for additional error messages and
consult the NVIDIA README for details.

[code]....

After I finish loading in low graphics mode I have to run "sudo nvidia-xconfig". Then, the next reboot the graphics card driver is loaded properly. Is anyone else experiencing this problem or have an idea how to correct it? I know it is a long shot, but do you think doing a fresh install of the stable release would work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Error : You Need To Load The Kernel First?

Oct 11, 2010

I've finally gotten around to installing Ubuntu 10.10. I currently have it installed on on a 320GB HDD. It's the 64bit. I also have Windows 7 x64 on a 1TB HDD. After I installed it, I keeping getting "Error: You Need To Load the Kernel First." Windows 7 boots up fine, but Ubuntu doesn't. I'm almost completely new to Ubuntu so I don't know how I would go about fixing this.

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB2: Error: You Need To Load The Kernel First

Mar 7, 2010

I've been using Ubuntu since 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon. I only recently fully switched to Linux OS's, and Ubuntu is now my primary. I currently have 9.10 installed. CURRENTLY I also have Backtrack 4, and Fedora 12 (Ugh!).Previously, I thought something was wrong with my my filesystem in Ubuntu 9.10, and after an upgrade of the linux kernel, I started to get Error: You need to load the Kernel First. That's where my problems started. I had upgraded to 9.10 from 9.04 and I still had Grub Legacy, so I went through hoops to try and get it to work, but eventually everything just kind of broke, and I completely wiped off my partitions on it and started fresh installs of all 3.

And now that the new linux kernel is released, 2.6.31-20 generic (I think... That's what the highest number on a file I can find in /boot is)I went through a few more hoops and ladders and tried to get it to work, but to no avail. I've looked the internet for a solution to this and tried just about everything but there is no unified answer, and I've seen on Launchpad there are alot of bugs that are classified as 'Fixed', but the problem still remains.I took out the 'quiet splash' part in the GRUB2 line for the newest kernel and it didn't do anything. It only changed it to "Error: Couldn't find file".This is the top two kernels (Main and Recovery for the new, and Main and Recovery for the previous working one)

Ubuntu :: ERROR: Unable To Load The Kernel Module Nvidia.ko

May 16, 2010

for the last few releases, starting with 9.04 i've been having serious crashing problems with the nvidia driver. whether i installed it manually using the latest drivers directly from nvidia, or installing them through the restricted driver option. after a few hours CRASH. it's been awful. and i tried everything from this side to the moon to fix this issue, all to no avail. no idea why i've even stayed with ubuntu after all these issues. came from the debian world back in 5.04, and almost moved back a few times. but i did a clean install of 10.04, and thought i'd give the nvidia driver one last chance... if it didn't work i'd be moving back home to debian (with the suspicion the issue would stay).

so after i tried the restricted driver and CRASH. nothing to fix it. then i thought ok i'll try to use the latest driver from nvidia. but ran into this error when installing it:

Quote: ERROR: Unable to load the kernel module nvidia.ko. This happens most frequently when this kernel module was built against the wrong or improperly configured kernel sources, with a version of gcc that differs from the one used to build the target kernel, or if a driver such as rivafb/nvidiafb is present and prevents the NVIDIA kernel module from obtaining ownership of the NVIDIA graphics device(s), or NVIDIA GPU installed in this system is not supported by this NVIDIA Linux graphics driver release. so after googling around i found a fix to this error i was getting during the install:

Quote: sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

blacklist vga16fb
blacklist nouveau
blacklist rivafb
blacklist nvidiafb
blacklist rivatv

General :: Triple Boot - Need To Load Kernel First

Aug 15, 2010

I have installed Linux Mint 9 within Win XP and have installed an additional HDD as a Slave on the same IDE cable as my DVD drive. I installed ubuntu on to the additional HDD using the live CD and when I try to boot the computer I am greeted by two versions of GRUB?! First version appears to be the one that comes with Mint and so asks me to boot either Windows or Mint, when I select Mint I get ubuntu's version of Grub, it asks me to boot one of three OS's; here's where it gets weird:

Top of screen says:
GNU GRUB Version 1.98-1ubuntu5-1mint2
If I select Win, it boots fine. If I select Mint it boots fine however if I select Ubuntu it says:
error: no such device
error: file not found
error: you need to load the kernel first

I pressed "e" within grub and was faced with this:
insmod ntfs
set root ='(hd1,1)'
search --no floppy --fs-uuid --set f6422203421e479
loopback loop0 /linuxmint/disks/root.disk
setroot =(loop0)
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.3-21-generic root =dev/sdb1 loop=/linuxmint/disks/root.disk ro quiet splash

General :: Grub 0.97 CLI To Load Kernel - And Boot On OpenSuse10

Aug 29, 2010

I unfortunately remove "some" softwares on my OpenSuse10 (preinstalled on my laptop, without cd driver) cause I was running out of space on hd. Icons starts to dissappear ...

Then I have only the Grub 0.97 shell that appears and to use to solve the problem... tried to boot kernel, but said that it "must be loaded before boot".

In the Grub 0.97 black window I have two lines :

I press "b", to boot with the First line : kernel (hd0,2)/boot/vmlinuz ... but the window turns blue and said "all data would be lost", so it shut down the system automatically to avoid this.

I press "e" to edit the command in the boot sequence for the same line, but don't really know what to tell Grub to do.

I must get my important datas back on my hd before "Restore to factory settings" (the last option). Any solution ?

Maybe it is a step on a solution ?

From [url] I downloaded linux kernel 2.6.27.27 on a usb memory stick. Could it be useful ? how to ?

Fedora Installation :: How And When To Load Kernel Module In Boot Up Process?

Jul 19, 2010

For a diskfull node (the OS installed in a disk), I can use the 'insmod' command to insert a kernel module into the kernel. And after the reboot, the module is still in the kernel. I have a question here: how, when and which kernel module will be loaded in the boot up process for a diskfull node?And for the diskless node, can I use the chroot or some other ways to install the kernel modules into ramdisk, so that kernel module can work when the diskless node boot up? I think it needs certain mechanism to load the kernel like the boot up of diskfull node.

Debian :: Determine And Remove Modules Load At Kernel Boot?

Jul 17, 2009

I was wondering how can I determine among the modules loaded at boot which of them are really necessary and which are not, in order to reduce the boot process time and have a more "elegant" system start.

I know this theme is a little bit of complicated because it depends of the user's point of view and demand a high knowledge of which things are happening in your system but I need somewhere to start improving the performance of my debian system.

Ubuntu / Apple :: Grub Error - Boot Back Into Mac Os X?

May 6, 2011

I am persuaded now (too late) that I need to invest in a robust backup scheme.

I had refit dual-booting snow leopard and ubuntu 10.10.

I tried to upgrade to 11.04 and it got stuck on bootup after the upgrade.

So I went into disk utility and deleted what I thought were all partitions except the mac one. I rebooted, and now I get the grub no partition error.

Did I delete my mac partition? I don't think that I did. How do I boot back into mac os x? Using the option key on bootup no longer shows a mac disk and inserting the mac os x system cd doesn't show any options either.

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows XP Won't Load In Dual Boot - Error 17?

Jan 18, 2010

I managed somehow to successfully install a dual boot with Ubuntu 9.02 and Windows XP. Ubuntu was on a PATA drive and the WinXP was on a SATA drive. The SATA drive was configured to boot first. As I was having problems with Ubuntu I booted into WinXP, re-formatted the PATA drive, then restarted the computer and installed Ubuntu 9.10. It all went well.I rebooted the machine and the following message was on the screen:

GRUB Loading stage1.5.GRUB Loading, please wait....Error 17

I rebooted, changed the boot order so that the PATA disk (Ubuntu) started first, then the SATA(WinXP). Ubuntu loaded up the dual boot screen.I chose WINXP, but I was greeted with a black screen.I rebooted again and chose to load Ubuntu, which it did without a hitch.what I should do to restore my access to WinXP? Or should I start again? If so, how?

Ubuntu :: Crashed After Update - Error "You Need To Load Kernel First"

Apr 29, 2010

I am having a Ubuntu nightmare. I am relatively new to the whole Linux thing. I just updated my Ubuntu from the update manager today and after I restarted I keep getting the following error: Error: You need to load kernel first.

My boot menu shows the following:
GNU Grub version: 1.97~Beta4
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-21-generic
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-21-generic (recovery mode)
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-20-generic
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-20-generic (recovery mode)
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic (recovery mode)
Windows 7 (loader) (on dev/sda1)

The only two that work are the last two. So I chose Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic and booted normally. From there I typed actionparsnip's suggested solution (which worked for other people on other versions): sudo apt-get clean; sudo apt-get --reinstall install linux-image-2.6.31-21-generic As you see I suited actionparsnip's solution to my version. The command downloaded something and made some fixes/updates and everything and seemed to have worked fine.

The system asked me to reboot, and here I am stuck: Now the boot menue shows the grup prompt which seems like: Minimal BASH-like line editing supported... sh:grub> NOTES: I originally installed Ubuntu alongside Windows 7 using Wubi. I can paste the contents "wubildr.cfg" if this helps. I had to go back to my Windows 7 to post this.

Installation :: Boot Error Kernel Panic Can`t Boot Cdusb

Sep 2, 2010

i used dual boot system (xp + ubuntu 10.04) and decided to replace them with jolicloud os and then it started In about 86% of jolicloud install it showed me error of hdd partition. I tried different versions of partion type, used also option to install on entire hdd - none of my tries actually worked (also with many hdd formating tries) so I was able to use only usb as live user for Jolicloud, and i burned ubuntu iso on disk - on boot up showed boot up error, i checked BIOS and everything seemed to be ok with boot order. So after many tries i took my old Gutsy Gibon 7.10 live cd. I first updated it with LTS version (8.04 Hardy Heron) and after that I updated it to 10.04 but it seemed to not finish when i saw some error in terminal and installer was exiting 13 minutes before finish then it had kernel panic - fuuuuck! After that i tried to download small versions of linux like Austrumi and puppy linux , but it showed me boot error or cd didnt even open install dialog without showing boot error.
