Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Get A Vista Box To Recognize Live CD Or Live USB

Sep 8, 2010

I've done a good few ubuntu installations for friends and colleagues and now my Dad wants in on the action. His PC is more than capable of running ubuntu 32 bit BUT I've hit a brick wall I've never come across before. I've burnt a CD image of the 10.04 iso from [URL] on my ubuntu box and for some reason, his PC just won't boot from it. If I select the option to manually select the boot source, all I see is the hardware monitor telling me things like CPU temperature. As for the Live USB - nothing whatsoever. Is it possible that I've managed to corrupt the iso file somehow?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Live CD Recognize Existing 9.10?

May 1, 2010

Is there a way to get the 10.04 Live CD to recognize my existing 9.10 installation and perform an upgrade without deleting all my files? I have been blocked out of Ubuntu 9.10 since December when I installed Windows 7 and it overwrote GRUB.

Ubuntu Installation :: Laptop Will Not Recognize Live Disk

May 25, 2010

I'm install it onto my laptop (its about 4 years old - a Sony Vaio VGN FS315E).

I have been given a live disk of the latest edition of ubuntu (10.4?) by someone at work, but my CD drive on my laptop seems to think the disk is blank. I know this is not the case as when the disk is inserted into a different laptop is it recognised as an ubuntu installation disk.

My aim to boot ubuntu from the disk to get a feel for what it's like before installing it fully on my laptop, and also to check that it would work on said laptop.

Ubuntu Installation :: Live Does Not Recognize Internet Connection?

Dec 5, 2010

On trying to install Ubuntu 10.10, one PC was fine. I attempted to install it on a Lenovo Q150 using the Ubuntu Live CD, but it did not recognize a network connection. When the same PC is running Windows 7, the network connection is fine (it recognizes my NAS drive also).Has anyone else had this problem/found a solution? I'm sure that someone else has posted this, but a couple of hours' searching revealed nothing.

Ubuntu Installation :: Vista Only Booting Into Recovery Mode After Installing From A Live USB?

Sep 4, 2010

So I decided to try Ubuntu from a live USB drive 10.04 LTS on my Toshiba laptop as the windows Vista SP2 was running really slow. I liked it and clicked on the install icon. From there I set it for duel boot and off it went. The install worked great. I then downloaded the startup manager and changed the start up to be default of windows loader. Now when it boots into windows it goes to the windows recovery thing and won't start windows.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Live CD And Live Stick Not Working

Apr 28, 2011

Live CD: I dowloaded the ISO, burned it to CD, booted from this CD. It starts to load and I can see the purple background with the loading icons. Everything seems normal. But instead of ending up with the login screen, it ends up with a screen that says 'Please remove all bootup media and hit ENTER' or something like this. So I hit enter and then it shuts off my computer. That's it.

Live Stick: So I tried another option and created a stick with 'usb-creator.exe' that is on the CD. Then I start from that stick, but all I end up is a line of 'Syslinux bla bla copyright 20xx-2011'. That's it. Then it does nothing anymore. The cursor is blinking, but no prompt or whatsoever and keyboard input doesn't do anything.

Now something weird: When I insert Live CD and Live Stick at the same time and then boot my computer, then it boots into Ubuntu. Obviously it loads the first parts from CD and then the rest from stick. Because when I'm then in Ubuntu and try to format the stick, it says it can't do so, because there's system files from that stick in use.

Ubuntu :: Live CD To Restore Vista Winload.exe ?

Mar 23, 2010

My Vista booting files are busted.

Windows Boot Manager says: ...winload.exe missing or corrupted.

Have read an article saying that Ubuntu Live CD can restore winload.exe or MBR.

I am an apprentice and unable to carry out such a complicated task.

Ubuntu Live CD 8.10 or 9.04 is on hand.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Live CD Failure - Goes To The "Log In" Page And Not The Live CD Page On Running

Aug 22, 2010

Just got back to attempting to play with 10.04 using its Live CD. It consistently goes to the "Log In" page and not the Live CD page on running. I saw a Post specifying a F key to be pressed on boot-up to get to the desired starting point some time ago, but did not write it down. Some advice did say press Any Key but this does not seem to do the job. Tried to use the search function here but no joy. Can anyone remember which F key? Note that as a check, I tried to use 9.10 Live CD and this worked fine, so it is not a machine problem.

Ubuntu / Apple :: The Default Option Is "live" Bla Bla Bla But In Case Of Problems Use "Live Video=ofonly"?

Apr 22, 2011

I've got an old iMac g3 on which I'd like to install Ubuntu Dapper Drake.Here's the problem:I insert the disk in the computer.Keep pressing "C" till this comes out:Quote:"The default option is "live" bla bla bla but in case of problems use "Live video=ofonly"I write "Live".The orange progress bar appears, but the the screen becomes black.I still can hear sounds: the classic ubuntu log-in music, but I can not see anything: I guess the live has started, but the screen is just black.By pressing CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE I'm able to come back to shell.

Once rebooted, I try "Live video=ofonly".Again the orange progress bar, but then this message comes outQuote:"Failed to start the X Server, It is likely that is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the server output to diagnose the problem?"Even if I dont select anything, some random words appear in the screen, too fast for me to read them.Then I'm back to shell.I read here (that the problem is caused by Xorg and that the solution can but editing his configuration by using Quote:sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.confBut I just don't know when to do that: Ubuntu is not installed yet and there is only MacOS 9.2 on that machine.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Use Gcc/g++ With Live CD

Jan 12, 2010

I am using 6.06 live CD and I'm trying to load ubuntu on a G4/1Ghz laptop with 1GB of memory and a 50~60GB harddrive. I want to use it to write simple programs (c++ and fortran, but I can't get it to compile -- it doesn't have g++!) I cannot connect it to the internet, so how can I get it to install with g++? I thought there'd be a more involved long list of things to include/exclude, but there isn't. I ordered a CD/DVD version of 9.10, but that won't be here for an estimated 4~6 weeks. How can I get this to work. I've tried using my dual core mac running 10.4.11 to download the image and burn it to a DVD, but it won't do it... but that's a second issue. What I need is c++ in the G4 running ubuntu.

Yesterday I wanted to check out the new Ubuntu version (10.04) but unfortunately this failed. I downloaded as usual the Ubuntu live CD image and burnt it on a RW-CD I had. I used Nero's software under Win XP Pro... The creation of the CD was fine... It booted from the CD, I choose the language, the try Ubuntu without installing. After this point nothing went as it should... I got a lot of error messages, the screen was in text mode it finaly stoped with a text mode ubuntu command line.The errors were mostly I/O errors I tried to use the check disk option but also failed same kind of errors and at the end somthing like trying to connect to plymouth connection refused.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Run Live CD

Oct 11, 2010

I downloaded the cd and burned it and checked it and all that

I start the computer and the press f6 when that picture of the guy and the keyboard comes up and then I choose try ubuntu without installing

Then I can se a white small line blinking in the upper left corner then it goes black, my monitor switches off and then nothing happens

I had the same problem trying to run 10.04 and 9.10

And I have had many different monitor so it is of course not that

I dont know why it wont work just that it dose not work, so will Ubuntu never work on this specific computer or will the next version work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Live CD - PC Won't Boot From Any CD

Feb 17, 2010

I tried installing Ubuntu 9.10 on an older computer. I figured since it was not that powerful, I'd try running it from the Live CD to see if it was acceptably fast. Of course, I forgot that I had put in a pair of unformatted 40 GB hard drives, so the Live CD didn't like those because there were no file systems to access. So I figured I would just reboot and install it. One problem: my PC acted as if there were no CD in the drive. So I tried a Windows XP CD, but I got the same result.

I reset the configuration data in my BIOS and I set the drives up correctly in there, made sure the boot order was right, and all of that. I was wondering if anyone has experienced something like this before, and if there's anything I can do before I try replacing the CD-ROM drive with another one. Computer info: Gigabyte 7IXE4 mobo with Athlon 1.2 GHz, 512 MB RAM, 2x 40 GB Seagate Barracuda HDs, not sure what the video card is (I'll worry about that one when I get there)

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Boot From 9.10 Live CD

Feb 24, 2010

I had issues installing Ubunut 9.10 on my Asus UX50 laptop but it installed perfectly on my tower. When installing 9.10 on my laptop I would get the live disc menu to try or install etc. Whenever I installed I got a big black screen for long lengths of time (each time varied from 15 minutes to 5+ hours), then on occasion I would get the glowy white Ubuntu logo, then if I was lucky, I would get scrolling code. It would scroll and scroll then stop. After the code stopped I would get the nice little blinking curser. I can type all types of fun things at this black screen but nothing seems to work.

I have tried 4 different CDS to no avail, my tower had the OS installed by one of the same discs.

I am successfully running 9.04 on this laptop.

a command of : lspci
gives me
00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corporation Mobile 4 Series Chipset Memory Controller Hub (rev 07)


From what I understand, my nVidia card may be the issue. So I have tried to boot in safe graphics mode and this also does not work. Safe mode directly delivers me to my black screen with my blinking curser.

I have also checked my drivers and I have no proprietary drivers installed.

Since I have 9.04 installed successfully does any one think that upgrading from Upgrade Manager would be successful?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot To Live / (9.10 And 10.4)

Apr 9, 2010

My notebook is an HP Envy 15 (Core i7 720QM, Intel DMI Host Bridge, PM55) I have 2 ISO files, Ubuntu Karmic 9.10 and Ubuntu lucid lynx 10.04, both have correct md5sums, i burned each on cd's and flash usb disks ( using unetbootin and lili usb tool ). However i never had a successful boot, i always reach : (initramfs): Unable to find a medium containing a live file system.

Bios of notebook has no settings to tweak regarding HDD Could this be a sata issue anyway ? I tried searching for this issue on the forums but all the posts were having burn problems, I also tried the flash usb disks on a desktop machine and they boot properly with no problem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Live CD Does Not Mount?

Apr 17, 2010

I've tried to install Ubuntu before, back in 08. Unfortunately, my computer didn't like the standard install process (just froze up whenever I selected any option from the splash screen - maybe because I have an nVIDIA graphics card), so I wasn't able to get it to work. Anywway, I saw that they had messed with the default nVIDIA drivers in the 10.04 beta, so I decided to try that.

I made a Live CD and booted from it. I hit the "Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer" option. It thought for a little while, then started the bootup sequence. Then I got an error message that said:

(initramfs) mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.squashfs failed: Input/output error Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

Could anybody tell me what this means? Should I try using the alternate install, or did I just get a bad disc? (I don't think I did, though, because I redownloaded and burned again and still got the same error.)
