Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 - Loading VM / Error Reading Sector

Sep 1, 2011

I created a boot disc (USB drive) with Ubuntu 11.04 and tried to install it on my Gateway GT5012 desktop running Windows XP. It gets to the part where I can "Run Ubuntu from this USB," and I select it. The screen shows "loading vm/linuz..." or something like that, and then the entire screen turns into dots.

One time, when trying to boot from the drive, it brought up
"CHS: Error 0201 reading sector 1418005 (88/68/3)
EDD: Error 4200 reading sector 1418006"

I ran this same USB drive on another computer (also running XP), and it worked just fine, so I really have no idea what's going on. If it matters, the computer it worked on had Internet access, this one didn't. It says "Loading /casper/vmlinuz..." and then goes to the screen of flashing dots.

Software :: Corrupted Font After Reading The 1st Sector From An USB Drive Using Dd?

Mar 18, 2010

I wanted to check the first sector of my USB stick, and so I issued:dd -if=/dev/sda -bs=1024 -count=1It showed me all the weird characters from the data, then after it executed my bash prompt became corrupted with the same kind of characters! Also, everything I typed was like that. (see the picture)Luckly, it was just that tty that became like that.How can I fix the fonts after something like that happens, and how to prevent it from happening whenever I use dd again?

General :: After Writing Successfully A NAND Block Is This Reliable Ar Reading As A NOR Sector?

Apr 7, 2011

Am interested in using MT29F2G08AABWP NAND Flash memory for a new embedded design and I couldn�t find a clear specification regarding how reliable is the NAND flash vs. NOR for reading operation.If I program successfully a NAND block, read back and verify successfully the information and never erase or program that particular block again, can I assume that block will remain a good block and the information written there is safe for READING, roughly as safe as a NOR sector?

Fedora Installation :: Error, Saying I Had Bad Sector(s) The Error Told Me To Run Chkdsk /f /r In Windows, Then I Could Run Ntfsresize With -b, (in Linux)

Feb 22, 2009

I have the DVD installer of Fedora 10, i want to dual boot with windows vista. well i get up to the partitioning part of installation (in anconda) and it asks me how i want to partition it... i wanted to re size my partition and create the default format, so i keyd in 70GB and Okay. then it came up with an error, saying I had bad sector(s) The error told me to run chkdsk /f /r in windows, then i could run ntfsresize with -b, (in Linux) well i did all those steps, and shrunk /dev/sda1 to 70gb (/dev/sda2 is my recovery partition) i have a 140 gb hard drive, but can't find the unallocated space anywhere!

when i booted windows, it ran a chksdk, like it should, and in my computer it said that it had been shrunk (because the pie graph showed a capacity of around 70GB) When i go into windows disk management it says no unallocated space, just one big partition (and a 8gb recovery partition) this is the same with GParted on puppy linux, GParted on fedora 10 (live cd) says there is no drives I can mount or unmount and same error on partition logic... in EASUS partition manager i get told that there is no unallocated space, in the fedora installer there is only /dev/sda1 and /dev/sda2. Does anybody know.. how to install fedora on this partition, or get rid of the partition and repartition it another way. when i click on the option to remove all linux partitions and create default format, it errors and says it cannot make another primary partition, then says there is no room for /boot. and i can not proceed.

Ubuntu Installation :: GParted Hangs Because Of Sector Size Error

Mar 22, 2010

Gparted won't let me install Ubuntu 9.10 64 bit. Every time it hangs at 47% and throws a sector size error, something like: doesn't support sector size 2048 and the code is HIGHLY EXPERIMENTAL. My 1TB hard drive exists out of the following partitions:

100MB Windows 7 Reserved
900GB+ Windows 7
30GB EXT4
1MB unallocated space

Is there a workaround for this? I've tried installing Linux Mint and Ubuntu but both gave me the same error.

Ubuntu Installation :: Bootloader To Usb Hard Drive - Error "no Boot Sector On Usb Device"

Apr 8, 2011

I am trying to install Ubuntu to an external usb hard drive (WD Elements SE). I am also choosing to install the grub bootloader to this disk (/dev/sdb) because I do not want anything modified on the internal drive. The installation appears to go okay, but when I try to boot to the usb drive, I get the error, "no boot sector on usb device" and it immediately falls back to my interal drive. I have tried this installation with both 10.10 (amd64) and 11.04 (amd64). How can I fix this?

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Loading Error When Install 9.10?

Jan 8, 2010

I went through the procedure to install Ubuntu 9.10 alongside Windows XP. The installation completed without complaint. But when I reboot the PC I get the error message "Grub loading error: no such partition...". and the keyboard is dead. I am using a Sony vaio PCG-FR215H laptop on which I have fitted new HDD and CD-drive. I carried out the installation by first booting up a live version of Ubuntu on a USB thumb drive and then clicking on the 'install Ubuntu' icon on the Live Ubuntu desktop. (I coudn't use a Live CD to install as this fails for some reason). I regained use of Windows XP on the PC by booting with a Windows 95 boot floppy and typing "fdisk /mbr". So, does anyone know what might have cased this grub error? Also, are there ways to try and fix the problem manually. I.e. can I get a copy of good versions of the files that are likely corrupted and then replace the stuff that I will have written over when I did the "fdisk /mbr"?

Ubuntu Installation :: No Boot Up - Getting Grub Loading Error 2 Message?

May 21, 2010

I have just installed Lucid Lynx as after a live run of it I thought it was about time to upgrade. Everything ran smoothly in the live version so I backed up my files and installed it. When I went to boot I get this -
Grub loading, please wait ...
Error 2

The strange thing is it seems to be specific to the computer. I have an older, lower spaced desktop, computer that I tried the hard drive in and it worked fine. Problem is its too low spaced for what I want so it seems the install went ok but its something with the computer? How I would be able to boot into the install?

Ubuntu :: Disk Formatted In Error - Boot Sector Repair

Nov 20, 2010

I was using the disk utility on Ubuntu 10.04 and wanted to make by 500GB external NTFS formatted USB drive into 1 x 50GB FAT32 and 1 x 450GB NTFS. I clicked the option that said format or create a partition and it basically wiped the whole thing in a split second leaving me with 500GB of seemingly empty space. Obviously the files are still there but I cannot boot the drive to view anything. I have downloaded testdisk, but don't know how to use it, but I am sure there is a relatively simple solution here. I am currently repairing the boot sector of the drive as Test Disk showed the drive as "no type" i.e. not FAT/NTFS/ext4 etc., but shows the correct amount of used space though, but I cannot view anything err go, I cannot use the undelete command as yet.

Ubuntu Installation :: Kubuntu 9.10 CD Has "Error Reading The Boot CD" On Acer X1800

Jan 6, 2010

The kubuntu 9.10 CD boots normally and present all the install options on Acer computer M3202 (AMD Athlon II X3 triple-core processor) and M3100 (AM3100-UD5200A. AMD Athlon64 x2) but not X1800 (AX1800-E9232. Intel Core2 Quad Processor Q8200). The "804200EF" number appears on the top left corner of the screen. The error screen with the red title "I/O error" and the message "Error reading the boot CD. Reboot". appear. Windows 7 is running ok on Acer X1800 so its hardware should be ok.

BTW, the System Rescue CD 1.3.4 does not work on Acer M3202 and X1800 but works correctly on M3100.

Fedora Installation :: F10 + RAID 1 / Error Loading Operating System?

Jan 13, 2009

I have a fancy new Quad Core Xeon machine here that I'm trying to install F10 x64 on. The installation went fine. When it reboots the first time, though, I get the dreaded Error Loading OS.

So I dug up my bookmark of the awesome Grub HOWTO here and followed the steps to install Grub manually. Alas, I get the same result after installing it. Even tried doing a makeactive (hd0) just in case, but no luck.

I did more searching and searched for "raid install" but didn't find anything helpful. So here I am... hoping somebody has some insight.

Hardware :: SMARTD Reported Disk Sector Read Error

Oct 27, 2010

2 months ago, I built a dedicated backup server using 4 2TB SATA drives for software RAID5 (6TB total). A few days ago, smartd sent out mail saying it found an unreadable sector on one of the drives. I ran selftest using smartctl and the error persisted. So far, neither software RAID nor ext4fs running on top of the RAID volume have reported errors.

MOST OPTIMISTIC: It is normal to have a few bad sectors among billions. Software RAID takes care of alternatives. Keep using the system until RAID spits a more serious warning in the future.

MOST PESSIMISTIC: It is a really bad sign to lead a disaster. No good disk drive should have bad sectors especially when it is only 2 months old. The error is simply not detected by software RAID and ext4. Replace the drive immediately and return the bad drive to the supplier.
