Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 64 Clean Install Will Not Boot?

Jun 23, 2011

I was having some troubles installing windows 7 (install hang with no solution) and decided Ubuntu might be a decent route to install windows, or maybe I'd be satisfied and stay with Ubuntu. Downloaded the official version of 11.04 AMD64, burnt the iso to DVD using windows, and went through the installation process (Having already formatted the drive), only to find that once I removed the installation media, as prompted, I was greeted with a blinking cursor in the top left corner. There were no errors during the installation and I can boot using the liveCD no problem. I am installing this on a 2.8ghz i7 processor, 8GB of DDR3, and installing it on a 120GB SSD.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot Clean Install Of 9.10?

Feb 8, 2010

few months back I did a clean install of 9.10 from 9.04 (wanted to clear room so decided against upgrade path) and since then I've been really struggling to boot into it. I've used Ubuntu since 7.04 and never had any issues with it - these issues have only started happening since my upgrade to 9.10. And I was hoping that 9.10 would be the release I could persuade her indoors to not boot into Windows XP!

Anyway my problem is that when I choose Ubuntu 9.10 from the boot list it gets to the point where the Ubuntu symbol is splashed up (with the brown background and the light shining on it) and then the little progress bar underneath freezes and the whole box freezes. It doesn't respond to any keypresses like the "magic" ones and I have mashed CTRL ALT F1 plus others keys repeatedly. Caps lock doesn't respond either so looks like completely frozen, though worth noting that the hard drive still sounds like it's spinning.

I've tried with every boot command under the sun (noapci, nosplash, quiet, noapic etc.) and none of them make any difference bar two - apci=noirq starts the desktop occasionally but with no windows manager, and irqpoll stops the freeze but it never loads the desktop or manager. Both these last two commands work about 1 in 10 boots or so but usually it freezes. I can also sometimes press Escape as soon as the Ubuntu symbol shows on screen and sometimes (about 1 in 5 tries) it gets into the desktop, but only if I hit it before it freezes up. The above does point to an IRQ issue but wondering what has changed since 8.10 and 9.04 which worked perfectly?

I've also booted into recovery mode and updated/fixed packages but the same thing happens with the recent 2.6.31-19 generic as well as -17, -14 etc. As per above I'm dual booting with Windows XP as the default boot option (wife's orders) but don't think this is related.

Ubuntu Installation :: ASUS EeePC 901 Does Not Boot After Clean Install / What To Do?

Nov 23, 2010

I tried to run Ubuntu 10.10 - Netbook and Ubuntu 10.4 live CDs on my ASUS 901.
Both run well.

But neither reboot after clean install.
After the machines BIOS splash screen there is just a blinking cursor at the left top of the screen. No ubuntu/linux/kernel messages whatsoever.

I tried installing both versions on both SSD-s (4GB & 32GB) and ensured the BIOS was correctly set to boot from the correct one.

I searched the net quite a lot but didn't find anything that could relate to an ASUS 901

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Boot Loader Failure On Clean Install

Feb 14, 2010

I'm having a problem installing Ubuntu Studio 9.10-alternate-amd64 onto my machine. This is the third attempt and I keep running into the same problem. Grub Boot Loader will only install to 16% when a screen pops up:

Ubuntu Installer Main Menu

Choose the next step in the install process:

choose language
configure the keyboard
detect and mount CD-rom
etc...

choosing the option "Install Grub boot loader on a hard disk" sends me back to the Grub install and once again at 16% the Ubuntu Installer Main Menu pops up. Choosing the option "Install the Lilo Boot Loader on a hard disk" resolves in an Lilo-install failure and i'm directed back to the Installer Main Menu. The option "Finish the installation" sends me back to the same menu..I'm stumped as to what to do... a disk check ensured me that the instal-dvd is valid though I can't get past this silly install menu.

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Not Showing After Dual Boot Clean Install?

I installed Windows 7 and then Ubuntu 10.10 64 bits. The Ubuntu installation went fine but when rebooting a "check disk" appeared and since then my PC keeps booting directly on Windows. I tried all the GRUB reinstallation methods of the GRUB2 Community Documentation with the live CD but none worked.

Below is the output of the Boot Info script found on several threads.

OpenSUSE Install :: Two Boot Flags Showing On Clean Install?

Oct 24, 2010

There are several posts here about not being able to boot without the install disk, which is also my case. I imagine the solution for me should be easy, because I only have a single installed OS on this machine, which is a MacBook Pro 2.1. Here's the result of fdisk -l:

Code:
WARNING: GPT (GUID Partition Table) detected on '/dev/sda'! The util fdisk doesn't support GPT. Use GNU Parted.

Partition table entries are not in disk order sda4 is a partition that did not appear in the partition overview when I installed the operating system. I thought I'd look for help here while I continue to research the problem myself.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.4 Clean Install Will Not Boot Past Splash?

May 18, 2011

I just switched back to openSUSE from Fedora linux. I made a clean install of openSUSE 11.4, but had trouble when installing the boot loader. For whatever reason the auto-partition tool hadn't given me a /boot partition even though the GRUB configuration referenced it. So I switched the / partition to /boot and the /home to / and now I don't have a /home partition. Is this why my system won't boot past the splash screen in "normal" mode, but boots fine in "failsafe"?

Ubuntu :: HP Compaq Nx7010 Won't Boot After Clean Install

Apr 29, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu 9.10 from a live cd, on a HP Compaq nx7010! I selected to use the entire drive, so nothing else is on there! The problem is when I start up the machine it wont boot into ubuntu! Instead I get a menu with 4 options:

Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic
Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.31-14-generic (Recovery mode)
Memory test (Memtest86+)
Memory test (Memtest86+, serial console 115200)

If I choose the first menu option I get the following error:

error: no such device: 07850f66-baab-4a48-B6C4-01268fee1523
Press any key to continue...

Pressing a key gets me back to the menu again! I have tried to install several times, thinking that maybe, just maybe something went wrong with the installation! But no such luck! I have also tried with different flavours such as ubuntu, xubunt and kubuntu with the same results!

Ubuntu Installation :: Clean 10.4 Reinstall In Dual Boot With XP?

Nov 7, 2010

I had a 100% XP machine, installed 9.10 into a dual boot a while ago, and eventually upgraded to 10.4 LTS.

Current partitions
/dev/sda1 ntfs
/dev/sda2 extended
---- /dev/sda5 ext4
---- /dev/sda6 linux-swap

Currently, dual boot is working and both OSes are working as expected (although there's that bit of inconsistency with intel 845 graphics). I want to do two things in a major re-install: move Home to a new, separate partition, and do a clean 10.4 install while still retaining XP dual boot. If possible leave sda1 untouched, but that can be reinstalled if necessary.

Only things in Home that need to be moved are documents and mozilla seamonkey prefs and emails. Those items I can save and restore manually, so I have no problems with backup needed files, then clean install, then manually restore.

I know enough to be willing to try suggestions, but also know enough to recognize I can get into trouble. So that's why I'm asking here first.

Ubuntu :: SSH Server Only Wants To Work On The Very First Boot Of A Clean Install - No Route To Host Error

Apr 22, 2011

Ok so I just installed Ubuntu 10.10 Server Edition. On the very first boot, everything seems to run perfectly. I can SSH into it from any remote computer with no problems. However, the installation of certain things calls for a system reboot, which 2 days ago never would have been a problem. But now for some reason, the SSH server only wants to work on the very first boot of a clean install. After I reboot it, I get the ssh: connect to host 192.168.0.180 port 22: No route to host error. The absurd part is sshd is running! I've even tried restarting sshd, restarting the server, and using both 64 and 32 bit installs. The only way I can get anything to connect to it is by using ssh localhost. It won't even let me connect using the IP on the local machine!

Ubuntu Installation :: Clean Install Of 11.04 Next To Win 7

Jun 15, 2011

So I've been trying to install 11.04 x64 on the same drive as Windows 7. The install seemed to go fine until it tried to install grub over the Windows 7 bootloader. My first try at this, I just told it to try again, and it seemed to install fine. It then rebooted and came up with the grub bootloader as expected. However, when it attempted to boot into 11.04, it gives me an error that says "unknown filesystem". It does however boot into Windows 7 fine. While I was writing this up, I went into my BIOS to make sure that my SSD was set to be the primary boot drive and it was not. Changed the SSD to primary boot priority and away it went.

For some reason, with the my other hard drive as the primary boot drive, it wouldn't boot to Ubuntu, but would behave just fine when going into Windows. Very strange behavior. I rebooted the computer again to make sure that the boot priorities fixed the problem and the default background came up halfway, like a corrupted .jpg file, so I forced a shutdown. Now I'm back to what I started with. I've been rebooting to see if I can reproduce the good startup, but to no avail. Also, when grub is loaded, it either gives me a purple or black background. Is this normal? It seems to alternate randomly.

TL;DR
I get one of three errors when trying to boot into 11.04 from a clean install next to a fresh Windows 7 install.
"error: unknown filesystem"
"error: hd1 out of disk"
"error: you need to load the kernel first"
I also see a kernel panic every now and again.

I've got a bootable flash drive with 11.04 on it and that's what I've been trying to install from. I've been looking more into this issue, and from what I've uncovered in the forums is that the new grub bootloader that comes with Natty has some issues. I found the procedure for a downgrade of grub to the Maverick version, but I have not come across a 64-bit procedure. This downgrade has worked from what I've read so far.

Ubuntu Installation :: Partition Your HD On A Clean Install ?

Jan 7, 2010

I made an upgrade from Kubuntu 9.04 to 9.10 and this upgrade generated a series of permission problems.

Considering that I have an individual /home partition, I am planning to make a clean install of Karmic (9.10) on a laptop with a 230GB hard disk and 2GB RAM.

The actual hard disk is mounted the following way:

In total there are some 230GB of Hard Disk available.

The fat 32 partition was not a good idea, because I can't access it from the file manager, so I will dump this partition on my next installation.

Now my question: What partitions would you recommend to mount and what size would you give to each partition?

Ubuntu Installation :: Need A Clean Install For Upgrading To 10.4

Mar 19, 2010

I'm a relatively new user of Linux, I use Kubuntu 9.10, and I would like to know whether I need to make a clean install for upgrading to 10.4 (I know, stable isn't ready yet, but I'm impatient , and I want to prepare in advance) or I could do it in some way without losing everything I have installed? Or maybe it would be better to only upgrade to the newest version of KDE (I'm using 4.3.2 now)? Which one is easier and/or better? How is it done (Note: using KDE)?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 OS Freezes After Clean Install

May 2, 2010

I just did a clean install of Ubuntu 10.04, my PC was running 9.10 and 9.04 before, no problems. No problems on install (received some: end-request: i/o error, dev sr0, ....errors but as far as I know this doesn't mean anything but Cd Rom door open). When I started Ubuntu everything runs ok, (even audio that didn't worked on 9.04 ..finally)

After 1 or to minutes PC just freezed, everytime I restarted same thing. Tried using liveCD, id does crash anyway. I downloaded another ISO using bittorrent, installed, same result. When I open the Computer Monitor I see the System Memory scale up to 100%, then it alternates between processor 1 and 2, it goes to 100% then to about 9 and the other processor goes to 100 one at a time.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Vs Clean-sheet Install

Feb 4, 2010

I'm currently using Ubuntu Jaunty, and am considering upgrading to Karmic. Is there any advantage to backing up my data and clean-sheet installing a newer version, or is the upgrade path through the update manager sufficient? Would a clean install carry less baggage coding-wise?

Ubuntu Installation :: Clean Install While /home Is In Its Own Partition

Mar 1, 2010

I guess it's time to move up to Ubuntu 9.10 from 9.04 ...unless you would advise me to stay with 9.04. Either way, I would like to do a clean install. I managed to create a separate partition for /home almost a year ago ... now the only thing I want to keep inside /home is one big folder which I already had made a backup copy with several DVDs (larger than 4GB). Besides that large folder, I would like to start everything new. This would be my second time installing and it has been quite awhile. Here are my questions:

1. I know I have backup DVDs in hand. But sometimes DVDs are funky. I would restore my files with DVDs as last resort. So, should I just delete all files and folders (including hidden ones) under /home except a large folder that I would like to keep? If so, can I do that while on a normal gnome session or am I better off doing it while on Live CD?

2. I see a suggestion that when installing Ubuntu, I need to make sure to mount /home but NOT FORMAT IT. Is there a visual tutorial or step-by-step guide showing how to do this?

3. Are there other gotchas like I need to "create" user name the exact same spelling as old user name that is already created under /home on my harddrive?

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Do Partial Clean Install Rather Than Upgrade

Apr 14, 2010

I have a compaq nx7010. It started out with 8.04 or perhaps 8.10. I upgraded it through to 9.04 when that became available. I have not upgraded to 9.10 year, because I recall it took me a fair amount of time to get my system working correctly after the 9.04 upgrade. At a guess, audio went down, wifi broke, and that sort of thing. I am now finding that apps I use are not releasing new versions compatible with 9.04. And I see 10.04 is on its way, and I understand it is best to go from one upgrade to the next rather than jump a release.

Here's my question:
I get the impression it is cleaner and more stable to do a clean install as opposed to an upgrade. I've also seen many people expressing that view. I've always just gone with upgrading because I didn't like the thought of having to set my whole computer up the way I like it, again. Is there a way to do a clean install that will keep my system the way I like it? For instance, to not have to reconfigure every application?

I have my partitions set up like this:
ext3 /home
ext3 /
linuxswap

Just how much config related stuff is stored in the /home folder? Or is this purely user files? What is the consensus? Is it better to upgrade or to do a clean install? My intention is to have a stable system that does not require hours of my time to get sound and wifi working, with the latest release on it (so that I can run the latest apps).

Ubuntu Installation :: Clean Install Fails To Reboot

I'm installing 10.4 x64 on a Dell PowerEdge R610 in a RAID 1 configuration and the install goes fine until I have to reboot the server to finish the install. On reboot after about a minute it gives the error.We've tried letting GRUB manually configure itself at the end of the install before we reboot and we've also pointed it to /dev/sba partition which is what should be the boot partition.In the code tag it's ALERT! /dev/mapper/mysql(one)-root.... the L and 1 look the same.I've got 3 of these server to get setup and running as part of our back end and network restructuring and have been stuck at this point on the first one since Friday.

Ubuntu Installation :: The Ordeal Of A Clean Install Of 10.10 (rant)

Oct 12, 2010

The system:
motherboard EP-8K7A+
memory 1 GB
Processor AMD Athlon 1.4 GHz
Video card AMD Radion All In Wonder
Monitor Sony GDM-FW900

This system had been running windows 2000 without problems for years until I replaced it with a faster computer. It then spent about a year running Ubuntu as my fathers computer without problems. I use it now a a test setup.

With 10.04 it was unusable because of this problem: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ti/+bug/572104

So I decided to do a clean install with 10.10. To that purpose, I downloaded the ISO for the i386 desktop install on my main system that is running Ubuntu 10.04. When the download was complete, I started the download of the 64 bit install CD. While that was downloading, I started Brasero, selected the i386 iso from a list of about 5 ubuntu install isos in the same directory and burned a disk. I took the disk down and booted from it in the above mentioned computer, it failed claiming to be an i686 disk. Annoyed I went back to my main system and started Brasero again, I selected the i386 iso again, clicked ok and looked at the name it had there. It had actually selected the first name on the list, not the one I had selected. I repeated this several times with the same result. I finally moved the i386 iso out of that directory was able to get it selected and burn the disk. During all of this the i686 was being downloaded into the same directory. I think this was part of the problem because once it was complete, I was able to select the i686 iso from the list without trouble and burn it.

When I finally got an i386 install disk, I booted it on the old computer. Being paranoid I ran the disk check. It went to a dark blue blank screen and sat there.Remembering my problems with my previous install, I rebooted, and went back to the menu looking for "safe video mode". This option did not exist. Instead, I found under F6 "Other Options" a list of undocumented options. Remembering that I was told to add "nomodeset" to the boot when debugging problems previously, I selected that option and was able to start the disk test. I left and came back several hours later and found a screen blanker had engaged. I hit the space bar to clear the screen blanker and started cursing as the results of the test flashed too fast to read as the system re-booted.
I restarted the disk test and happened to be in the room when it completed successfully.

I then selected install Ubuntu. After a bunch of thrashing, this got stuck at the second problem with this system. It chose a resolution that the monitor can handle, but the video card can not. In this mode, I can only see the stuff that is on the far left edge of the screen, and that data is repeated about 6 times over the rest of the screen.

I next tried running Ubuntu directly from the CD. This again chose the wrong video resolution, but under System->Preferences->Display one can change the resolution. The problem is that I could only see the left half of the System menu. After a bunch of trial and error trying to guess where the "Display" menu item was on the screen, I finally found it and got the Monitor Preferences window up. Of course it opens in the middle of the screen and I can't see it. So I alt-click and drag the invisible window to the left where I can see it and select the next smaller 16x10 resolution and click apply. This works, I can finally see the whole screen.

I then click on install, and the entire install appears to work fine... until I reboot. Kernel Panic!!! I get the following error message:

Code:
[ 1.805028] kernel panic -not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)
[ 1.805085] pid:1,comm:swapper Not tainted 1.6.35-22-generic#33-ubuntu
[ 1.805133] Call Trace:
[ 1.805188] [<c05c6468>] ? Printkt 0x2d/0x35

[code]....

I tried running the recovery mode, that said something about not being able to use a particular disk ID and claimed to be about to list the available disk IDs, but instead of listing disk IDs, I got another kernel panic.

As a last resort, I decided to try installing again. I followed the same procedure, but this time after a reboot, I did not get a kernel panic, I got a blank dark blue screen. One would think that since I had to select "nomodeset" every single time I booted the install disk that it might be a good idea to add that option to the install. But no. Now I had to try and remember how to get to the grub menu on boot since it was not being displayed by default. After a few wrong guesses I remembered that I had to hold the shift key down during boot. Adding "nomodeset" got past the blank dark blue screen, and got me to a login screen with the resolution set so high that I could not see the important parts. I blindly hit enter and typed in my password. This worked and I was presented with a desktop, again in a resolution too high to be useful. I had marked on a business card the offset from the top of the screen that the "Display" menu item should be when using the liveCD, but of course there are more menu items in the actual install, so I was in for a few more rounds of trial and error. After getting the resolution down to something that actually works, and setting that to default, I ran the update manager which already had a kernel update. After the update I rebooted. I missed the grub menu so I did not get a chance to add the "nomodeset" option, the booting screens were garbage, but I was surprised to find that the login screen was now working, and I was able to login. So it looks like I have a working system.

While all of this was going on, I was attempting to backup my home directory on my main computer. I have a USB hard drive attached to a DD-WRT router that is shared as a FTP drive. I attempted to copy my home directory to this drive several times, each time, it would copy for a while, then just stop transferring data. I then turned on an old windows 2000 machine with lots of free disk space and tried to copy the home directory to that using smb with the same result. I finally did the backup my moving the USB drive from the dd-wrt machine directly to the computer I was trying to back up. That worked.

I have never logged in. Don't ask me to go to /etc/, I can't log in. It is NOT a video proplem, Ubunto Server is command line OS.

Login incorrect: [system-name] login: Login time out after 60 seconds.

I'm asked to enter a network system name during install. I'm asked for a password, then repeat it during install. but never asks for a "UserName" during install. So, what is it? root? ubuntu? default? Nope, I've tried many many many of them, even admin, nothing works.

Ubuntu Installation :: Clean Install Without CD - ISO File On System

Apr 16, 2011

I want to perform a clean install on my machine - it's had loads of rubbish installed, and is a real mess. Trouble is, while I have downloaded the ISO file, I do not have any blank CDs. Is there a way to mount the ISO and run the installer from within a running system? Probably not, but I thought I'd ask in case I missed something.
