Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Live CD 'unrecoverable Error'

May 6, 2010

"The installer has encountered an unrecoverable error.A desktop session will now begin so you can investigate the problem or try installing again".It didn't get as far as giving me the option to check cd disc for defects, try without installing etc.9.04 and 9.10 installed fine on my two hard drives, so presumably this is not a hardware problem. During a desktop session I noticed a prompt to install proprietary drivers (graphics?). Could this be the problem? I don't have anywhere near the knowledge to 'investigate the problem'.

Ubuntu Installation :: Failed - Unrecoverable Error When Booting From The 10.04 Live CD - 10.04

Jun 28, 2010

I'm getting the following error when booting from the 10.04 live CD: Installation Failed. The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again.

I checked the CD for defects, and even tried re-downloading/burning to a new disc, but got the same problem. I tried booting in to the LIVE session then installing from the desktop but I still got the same error. I have had 9.10 running on here fine, and after running a Kubuntu 9.10 disc I had to hand to check it would work, that installed fine (hence the auto-partitions you will see in my info dump below). Here is some information about my system, let me know if I've missed anything. I've also included a copy of the syslog below.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Encountered An Unrecoverable Error

May 27, 2011

I'm a first time user of xubuntu or any other linux derivative operating system and I was wondering if I could get some assistance on installing xubuntu 11.04 on my old laptop. When I downloaded the iso and burned it into a DVD+R, I inserted it into the machine and let it ran. It started well and I checked the disc's integrity before continuing with the installation and it passed that. Now, as I enter the installation screen, I select my language then click forward but the installer freezes for a few minutes and later disappears only to be replaced with an error message, "The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again." and it does as it says and boots into a demo mode. I try installing again through the "Install Xubuntu.." link on the desktop but it follows the same problem.

My laptop's specifications are as follows:
256 RAM (240 usable)
Intel Pentium M processor 1500 MHz 599 MHz
Video card: 64 MB internal Intel 82852/82855 GM/GME Graphics Controller
Sound card: Realtek AC97 Audio

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 64bit Installation Fails - Installer Encountered An Unrecoverable Error

Apr 23, 2010

I tried to install 64bit 10.04 Release Candidate but it fails every time. I have been using 64bit 9.10 Karmic on this computer so it's suitable for installation.

I tried to install from USB stick and from CD but same error at the same point! It fails just befere it starts to ask your locations etc...

There must be something totally wrong on installer. Checksums are ok etc...

Errors seen with CD and USB stick installation: Pop up: "Istalltion failed The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run so that you may investigate the problem or try installing again."

On command line I can see following error message on CD:

Ubuntu Installation :: Installation Failed 10.04 - Installed Encountered An Unrecoverable Error?

Aug 4, 2010

I am trying to install 10.04 32bit onto a new 1.5TB harddrive. I had previously installed 10.04 64bit on an old drive in the same nmachine. I partitioned and formatted the new drive using the old system. I have a couple of windows partitions and restored Win2K images to them, 4 formated Ext3 partions for whever flavour of Linux appeals to me a swap and two huge NTFS Data (home) and work areas. I installed Grub on the new drive, it also has its own partition for boot config files. The old drive has now gone.

Grub2 boots OK and gives me option for all the OS's even the one that are gone, thats OK I can fix that later with grub-update. Win2K boots fine and I see my NTFS partitions.

Now I boot from the Live i386 CD and chosse to install Ubuntu. The only thing that not allowed to default is where to install. Specify partition manually, Choose a spare 20GB Ext3 and the swap is already there too. I let it reformat to Ext3 and mount as /. (In Advanced I let the install boot loader default to ticked on /dev/sda )

The install goes OK until I hit the pop-up "Installation Failed". The installed encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will be run etc etc..

I have tried this at least 10 times no. I downloaded and cut a new CD even though the old one worked fine on another box. Tried unticking the boot loader. Disable the floppy, removed the floppy.

I am relatively new to Ubuntu. Where do I look for the cause of the problem? I'll cut and paste the install log files in a moment.

Ubuntu Installation :: The Installer Encountered An Unrecoverable Error And Will Now Reboot

May 1, 2010

I'm installing 10.04 using Wubi, Wubi finishes and asks if I want to reboot, I reboot and select Ubuntu. The installer seems to progress, however later the following pop-up appears

Ubuntu Installation :: The Installer Encountered An Unrecoverable Error And Will Now Reboot?

Jul 26, 2010

I seldom mess with Wubi because I prefer a true dual-boot but due to a recent reply in the following bug report I thought it might benefit Colin Watson to have a first hand source of the problem:[URL]Then "bcbc" replied in post #273 and shortly after the thread was closed Now, I've had precious little time to do much testing and such lately due to an overdue remodel that was needed due to a kitchen fire over two years ago, and weather related problems have just nailed me big time to-boot, so I'm sorry if I seem more scatter brained than usual, but such is life.

Anyway, I did as "bcbc" suggested but it appears that Verbose Mode is no longer supported in 10.04 Wubi I do not currently have a working camera to take a shot of the options provided if hitting Esc after the initial install but it just drops me to a grub> prompt.I've tried disabling every bit of the Win XP security, defragging, reducing and increasing the default size of the Wubi install, etc, etc, etc!Any Wubi experts out there?I'd like to test for regression regarding those grub2 updates but I can't unless I can install 10.04 Wubi on this test machine Also, I can't currently network more than one computer, so ssh is just not possible. I have no room! The moral of that story is to NEVER live in a home while you're remodeling

Fedora Installation :: Error Sayings "Unrecoverable Proccesor Error Has Been Encountered"

Feb 7, 2011

I am trying to run Fedora 14 from Virtual PC 2007 on Windows XP. Every time I try to boot it, it flashes some code and shows a blue screen with the Fedora logo for a fraction of a second. It goes to an ms-dos type screen with a white background and a single "[" in black. Then I receive an error saying "An unrecoverable processor error has been encountered. The virtual machine will reset now." I have googled many times and have scavenged the Fedora site for a solution, yet I have not found one for Fedora 14.

Ubuntu Installation :: "encountered An Unrecoverable Error" / Getting A 'Crash Report' Notification On Panel?

May 23, 2010

I was intending to do a clean install of 10.04.I have downloaded and burned desktop-i386.iso.After booting from CD and selecting install from the menu, I get the splash screen for a few minutes, then black screen, then purple ubuntu screen, then the error message "the installer has encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now be run etc.....".

I am thinking this may be related to ACPI, because when i 'Try Ubuntu without installing' it loads ok but I get a 'Crash Report' notification on the panel.

If again 'Try Ubuntu without installing' with F6 option "ACPI=Off" it loads up with no problem.

Another thing I noticed is that when I load with ACPI=OFF, my external drives automount, but if i dont turn ACPI off, and get the Crash report notification the external drives do not automount.

Software :: Unrecoverable Fatal Error - Cannot Open File List

This morning when attempting to upgrade (aptitude update; followed by aptitude safe-upgrade) my system I started receiving the following error:

It doesn't seem to matter what repository I use or what particular package that I attempt to upgrade (all or just a single package). (In particular, apache2-doc is not even a package being upgraded, although it is installed on the system.) I have rebooted, run apt-get clean, run apt-get check, etc. to no avail.

Ubuntu Installation :: Error - Live Cd Won't Mount

Aug 28, 2010

[URL] this thread had some information but i need some clarification as the results i got from the diaagnostics were not the same as the OP. my prooblemm is when i put the cd in the drive, i get this error:

Unable to mount Ubuntu 10.04 DBus error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

when i type this command:

sudo mount -t iso9660 /dev/scd0 /media/cdrom

i get this message:

mount: block device /dev/scd0 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: /dev/scd0 already mounted or /media/cdrom busy
mount: according to mtab, /dev/scd0 is mounted on /media/cdrom0


the fellow fixed his by adding or editing his menu.lst in grub, but since my results are not exactly the same as his i dont know what it is i should be adding or editing. but it seems to have something to do with installing generic ide drivers and disabling the flopy drive and another item that even he didnt know what it was doing

Ubuntu Installation :: Live CD Out Of Memory Error

Nov 13, 2010

Today, I burned a copy of Lubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat and tried installing it on my old 2.4Ghz Celeron 192MB RAM (actually 256MB with 64MB dedicated by the BIOS for the internal video card) laptop, which installed Lubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx with absolutely no problems. However, when I tried inserting the disk for Maverick this time around, the live CD boot always hangs during Plymouth, and pressing Esc shows:

Generating locales. en_US.UTF-8.I modified the boot options and removed splash and quiet, and I got a whole lot of messages that seemed like errors, but I think the root of the problem was this:

Out of memory: kill process 620 (localedef) source 929 or a child Killed process 620 (localedef) VS2: 59500kB, anon-rss: 57596kB, file-rss: 820kB After that, it got a few messages about localedef timing out for 120 seconds or something. Now I'm no idiot, I'm well aware that my laptop is cutting it very close to the minimum RAM requirements of the live CD, but it's just the live CD that stops me from running Lubuntu, because once it's installed, I have no problems. I ran Lubuntu 10.04's Live CD with no problems and the installed LXDE system ran amazingly fast. I'm sure if I could just install Lubuntu 10.10, it would run at the same speed. The problem is that the Lubuntu wiki still writes the minimum system requirements of:

Ubuntu Installation :: Live CD Instalation Gives Stange Error Messages?

Apr 29, 2010

I'm trying to install ubuntu 9.10 on a new Dell studio 1535. Since I have 4GB of RAM I went with the 64bit version. I can get to the menu where I select to check disk, install, try without changing etc... However when I tried to check the disc integrity I saw the Ubuntu logo for about ten minutes and then let it sit for another 20 minutes, and all I saw was a blank screen. I then tried making another CD and came up with the same results. I then tried to install and at first it was like before, but then i started getting different error messages the majority had the form: [ 771.744543] Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 337015another looked like:[ 1244.029631] end_request: I/O error, dev sr0 sector 673592a few said something about SQUASHFS.I have tried three different CD's I looked at the hash and they matched up so the file is fine. I downloaded the 32bit version and I'm going to try that just to see if it works.

Ubuntu Installation :: Booting From Live CD Fails - Initramfs Error

Plus an old case and PSU and an old 18gb IDE drive, and an old CD-RW drive

I put the CD in and boot the machine. The initial Ubuntu screen comes up ("Ubuntu" with the line of dots below it) for a few seconds, and then it disappears and I see this text:

Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

At that point it hangs and will proceed no further. I've tried this with the latest Mythbuntu Live CD and the latest Ubuntu Desktop Edition Live CD. Both were x64 versions.

Ubuntu Installation :: Initramfs BusyBox 'Could Not Load' USB Live Bootup Error

Feb 13, 2010

I have downloaded the latest Ubuntu 9.10 and used 'U904p' a program I had for creating 9.04 live USB I had before. I had 9.04 on the USB pen but thought that 9.10 would be better to install right away rather than upgrading it. So I run through the CLI and make it bootable and all that. I come to put in my pretty old (Spare parts mashed together) Linux box. I get this about 1 minute after the Ubuntu logo and loading bar:

Top of page: WARNING: Couldn't open directory /lib/modules/2.6.31-14-generic: No such file or directory

Then lots of 'FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.31-14generic/modules.dep No Such file or directory'

Then I am dumped in to Busybox in initramfs command line. I have been googling and look around the forums all last night and this morning. I find loads of stuff from 9.04 but not 9.10? I tried the old 'Pull USB pen when Ubuntu log shows' and 'Changed SATA settings' turned them off in end, using IDE. Could it be that I created it using the old U904p program. I will look in to the newer one. Seen it about on forums. Otherwise any ideas? I am wanting to build a FOG box for imaging all my PC's and trailing it for work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install From A Working Live Cd But Got Medium Not Found Error

Feb 23, 2011

heres what happenned:

1. had working xp install on 320 gb hard disk with only one partition.
2. backed up and used easeus to shrink and create new partition on same hard drive.
3. tried to install from a working live cd but got medium not found error.
4. looked for fix but didnt find it so i used wubi to install it to the partition i created.
5. worked but annoyingly slow so looked for guide to switch from wubi to full install.
6. followed guide and it installed to a new partition i made with gparted and it formatted that one to ext4 but i still had the wubi install which i didnt want. (btw, non-wubi is much > wubi install).
7. went to xp to uninstall wubi, delete wubi partition, and grow full ubuntu install partition with easeus. easeus requires reboot.

8. restart comp to find an error that said no partition found and something else about grub rescue.
9. try live cds but hard drive not detected and tried win7 and xp but they didnt even get into setup
10. make plan: get bro to format my hardd disk using his compyter so i csn try ubuntu onw more time

i got a bunch of different types of errors but im really close to giving up on it entirely.

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.

Fedora Installation :: Crippling Graphics Error When Trying To Load Live CD

Aug 4, 2010

I'm not entirely new to Linux, but I'm far from a standard user. I decided to give it another try with Fedora on my new Asus G60JX laptop. Specs: Intel Core i5 430m, Nvidia GeForce GTX 360m, Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

When I attempt to run the live CD from either a physical CD or a bootable flash drive, it loads as usual. However, once Fedora goes to the desktop, I get this screen:

As you may be able to tell, it's a garbled version of the Windows desktop I had previous to the reboot. Evidently, something in my hardware is not supported. However, I fail to see how I can install drivers when this is literally all I can coax the computer into doing.
