Ubuntu Installation :: Install Alternate Iso From USB Drive?

Jul 7, 2010

I've tried the Universal USB Installer, but that doesn't support the alternate iso. And if I select the regular desktop one, it screws up the installation when I try to boot.

Unetbootin gives me this error during the cdrom process. It says it can't find copy files from cdrom and stuff. Well of course, there's no cdrom...

Ubuntu Installation :: Alternate Install Does'nt Recognize CD-ROM?

Oct 29, 2010

i have a Compaq Presario S4020WM
2.0Ghz XP2400 CPU
768Mb RAM
2 40Gb Hdd
and a HD raedon 4650 AGB 1Gb Grafics Card

I have tried to install Ubuntu with this CD and it gets past the keyboard detection part and then it tells me i need to get the CD ROM drivers via removable media, i know this is a problem with ubuntu 10.04 because i can install just fine a 8.04 ubuntu.

i don't know what to do.I have tried to install from a USB but my comp is too old for that, i know its not the specific cd because i'v used about 5 different brands of cd just to see if it was the cds i was uesing,

I would just upgrade from 8.04 to 10.04 but i get to the dbus part and the comp starts to run really slowly and eventually colors just show up, i left it for an hour to see if they would go away and fix but they didn't. Iknow my comp CAN run 10.04 because i have done it before, but i uninstalled and now i can't seem to get it to work again.

P.S. i have tried the live cd, same effect.

Ubuntu Installation :: Alternate Install (10.04 And 10.10 Alpha) LVM Boot?

Jun 19, 2010

Today I decided to replace my 9.04 install with 10.04. (I did this on a separate hard disk.) As I am a big fan of LVM I used the 'Alternate' install CD. Everything installed fine.

However, upon booting I observed two things: firstly there was no grub menu. No countdown timer, no menu. Just a flickering cursor. After 15 seconds or so I got a message telling me that:

/dev/mapper/bromine-root (My root partition.) does not exist and that it had given up waiting. Finding this kind of strange I tried the alpha of 10.10 --- same again. Hence I have two questions: firstly, where did the nice grub menu go; secondly, what is wrong with LVM and grub these days? At the initframfs prompt I am thrown to there are some LVM utilities and they appear to show my volumes.

Switching back to my old pair of hard disks and everything works as expected (i.e, the hardware is fine and supported by Linux.)

Ubuntu Installation :: Md5sum Mismatch- 10.04.2 Alternate Install?

May 16, 2011

I downloaded the Xubuntu 10.04.2 Alternate Install CD ISO file from http://mirror.anl.gov/pub/ubuntu-iso...10.04/release/

When I checked the md5sum of the downloaded file, however, there was a mismatch.

The md5sum given at both http://mirror.anl.gov/pub/ubuntu-iso...elease/MD5SUMS as well as https:[url].... is 209cfc88be17ededb373b601e8defdee *xubuntu-10.04.2-alternate-i386.iso but running the command,

md5sum xubuntu-10.04.2-alternate-i386.iso generated the following, obviously different checksum for me:

098674ad5a59f0115030c5c0c3973899 xubuntu-10.04.2-alternate-i386.iso

(It also took unusually long to generate the checksum- around thirty minutes.)

Is it possible that the file was corrupted or tampered with on the server?

Ubuntu Installation :: Alternate 64bit Iso Install Raid Failure

Aug 27, 2010

UPDATE: decided to reinstall and run the partitioner to get rid of the raid. Not worth dealing with this since seems to be lower level as /dev/mapper was not listing any devices. Error 15 at grub points to legacy grub. So avoiding the problem by getting rid of raid for now. So ignore this post. Found a nice grub2 explanation on the wiki but didn't help this situation since probably isn't a grub problem. Probably is a installer failure to map devices properly when it only used what was already available and didn't create them during the install. I don't know, just guessing. Had OpenSuSE 10.3 64bit installed with software raid mirrored swap, boot, root. Used the alternate 64bit Ubuntu iso for installation. Since partitioning was already correctly setup and the raid devices /dev/md0,1,2 were recognized by the installer, I chose to format the partitions with ext3 and accept the configuration:

/dev/md0 = swap = /dev/sda1, /dev/sdb1 = 2Gb
/dev/md1 = boot = /dev/sda2, /dev/sdb2 = 256Mb
/dev/md2 = root = /dev/sda3, /dev/sda3 = 20Gb

Installation process failed at the point of installing grub. It had attempted to install the bootloader on /dev/sda2 and /dev/sdb2. I moved on since it would not let me fiddle with the settings and I got the machine rebooted with the rescue option on the iso used for installing. Now, I can see the root partition is populated with files as expected. dpkg will list that linux-image-generic, headers, and linux-generic are installed with other supporting kernel packages. grub-pc is installed as well. However, the /boot partition or /dev/md1 was empty initially after the reboot. What is the procedure to get grub to install the bootloader on /dev/sda2 and /dev/sdb2, which represent /dev/md1 or /boot?

Running apt-get update and apt-get upgrade installed a newer kernel and this populated the /boot partition. Running update-grub results in a "/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: no mapping exists for 'md2'". grub-install /dev/md2 or grub-install /dev/sda2 gives the same error as well. Both commands indicate that "Autodetection of a filesystem module failed, Please specify the module with the option '--modules' explicitly". What is the right modules that need to be loaded for a raid partition in initrd? Should I be telling grub to use the a raid module?

Ubuntu Installation :: No Video Output After Natty Clean Install With AMD-64 Alternate

Apr 28, 2011

I have a Gigabyte 6A-M61P-S3 with an nVidia chipset, and I'm using the built-in graphics rather than a discrete graphics card. Ubuntu 10.10 and previous releases ran flawlessly on it using the nouveau drivers. I tried doing an upgrade to 11.04 using the Alternate AMD-64 CD, and it seemed to complete successfully, but when it came time to reboot, I had no video output at all after the BIOS screen. This is a test machine, so I went ahead and did a clean install using encrypted LVM with the Alternate AMD-64 CD after confirming that 64-bit 11.04 ran fine using the Live CD.

The installation went fine, but the first reboot flashed a brief "error: no video mode activated" and then I lost all video output. Subsequent reboots didn't give me any error message, but I had no video output. I suspect there are some boot parameters that would have gotten the nouveau driver working, but I wanted to try Unity, so I rebooted to get the Grub menu, chose Recover Mode, selected failsafe graphics, and got to the Desktop, then installed the proprietary nVidia driver (current) and once I rebooted everything was golden.

Ubuntu Installation :: Alternate Install CD Also A "live CD"?

Mar 9, 2011

Long story short - I'm looking to run a live CD so I can alter my existing 10.10 x64 installation. The standard desktop install CD results in a graphically corrupted window (a grainy grey field). The alternate install CD does get me to its text menu, but the shell I open operates on the ramdisk the install CD creates, not the existing hard drives. I can't seem to get the alternate install CD to do anything to my existing file system.

I'm using the x64 alternate install CD off a USB key. Short story long - I'm trying to convert from ext3 which I've inherited from upgrading all the way from Warty, to ext4. I see instructions on how to do it and the best way is using a live CD, so I need to see the existing file system from the live CD via a shell.

As my 10.10 install is working just fine, I'm getting less and less inclined to mess with it at this point, so I may just abandon it. But I understand ext4 is much faster than ext3, plus I always learn a lot when I go through things like this, so this is just a question before I give up.

Ubuntu Installation :: Creating An Extremely Minimal Version Of Xubuntu Using XFCE - Go With Mini.iso Or The Xubuntu Alternate Install CD ?

Jan 12, 2010

I was thinking of creating an extremely minimal version of Xubuntu using XFCE. I have a Dell Mini 9, a netbook that uses a wireless-g card requiring bcmwl-kernel-source to work.What I would like to do is use either the alternate CD or mini.iso minimal install file to perform a command line install-style installation of the system.So far, what I am thinking (from reading this [url].... article:

HTML Code:

http:[url].....is to start off with these packages to begin with:

slim (if possible with 9.10, unsure if it is still available. in short, i want to use a lightweight display manager)

My opening questions are: Should I go with mini.iso or the Xubuntu Alternate Install CD (or the Ubuntu one)? If so, which one? What additional packages will I need to make the hardware accessible and fully functional? All I can think of so far would be sound (I'd like to stay away from PulseAudio if possible, it wreaks havoc with my computer), my webcam, and the memory card slot, if additional packages are needed for it?What other "core" packages should I include in this list? Should I include Synaptic, or other packages, and why?What do I need to take into consideration, since this is both a directly- and battery-powered computer?

post regarding a "Ubuntu-Desktop-Minimal"-type system.

General :: Lightweight Ubuntu Install Using Alternate Install CD?

Jan 19, 2011

I am trying to do a 'light' install of Ubuntu 10.04 using the alternate install CD. Here is how i am planning to do it:

1. Perform a console only installation(Standard system only on d-i tasksel)
2. Install gnome-core
3. Then install the packages i need using apt.

1. Would such an installation lead have any significant performance(RAM usage) advantage over a full fledged installation?

2. Is there a way i could install gnome-core from the installation CD instead of downloading them from the repository?

3. Would installing just gnome-core mean that synaptic & update-manager wouldn't be available? i am hoping that it wouldn't be the case I checked their dependencies from packages.ubuntu.com, it doesn't look like they need gnome-desktop-environment to be installed first.

4. Would such an install have any more device driver related issues (eg.display drivers) than a regular install?

Ubuntu :: Alternate Install CD Not Mountable?

Jun 11, 2010

I've upgraded to the new 10.04, and when I have the Alternate CD in, it shows on my desktop, and I can search all the contents of the CD, so I know it's registering. But when I try to install anything, via the terminal, .deb packages, synaptics package manager, it always asks me to insert the CD. Then I click ok and it says it's not mountable, even though I know it is because it's on my desktop.

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Alternate CD Not Recognising Keyboard In Installation?

May 10, 2011

Actually, thats a lie. It works on the initial screen (where you can select how you want to install via command line or text based etc etc).But whatever option i select from there it loses the keyboard.The first screen (asking for keyboard layout) just sits there on english but i am unable to advance. Its as if my keyboard is unplugged (has LED backlights and they turn off as soon as it hits this screen so im guessing its USB driver related).I wanted the alternate to do drive encryption but it doesnt seem to want to know. Normal CD works fine btw.

Ubuntu :: Alternate 10.04 64bit Install Hangs At 75% And Asks For CD?

Jul 2, 2010

Had problems with hard drives yesterday, wouldn't recognise them after I'd installed Linux. Today I fixed that problem (another thread on here, in the hardware section) but now, every single time the install gets to 75%, it asks me to insert the CDROM and basically hangs.

Hitting enter doesn't try to fire up the CDROM, there's zero noise from it. It did this once yesterday but all other tries worked fine. Today it's failed the 7 different times I've tried, in exactly the same place, each time asking for the CD, even tried re-burning the CD, still failing at the same place. It's just after doing something to APT, then storing something (not very helpful I know). Can get a command prompt by CTRL-ALT_F2, but have no clue as to how to proceed when I get there.

Ubuntu Installation :: Use The Alternate So Can Encrypt The Hd?

Apr 17, 2010

have been trying for many hours to install Ubuntu 9.10, on a system that already had 9.10 installed on it at one point (so I know it should work!) I am using an alternate install, from a USB thumb drive. I use the alternate so I can encrypt the hd. Everything goes smoothly until I am to select extra packages to be installed. The only package I select is the ubuntu-desktop, and around 80% progress, or so, it fails. I then try and complete the base install, and then login to the command prompt and install there:

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktopIt then requests the Ubuntu disc, which of course I don't have. It has a landline internet connection. Do I need to configure something to tell it to look to the mirrors to find the desktop? Or, should it have been included in my iso image originally

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04.2 - Alternate For RAID Support

Apr 8, 2011

I am trying to install ubuntu 10.04.2 onto a computer (alternate for RAID support). This is a fresh install - I am formatting all drives. Partitioning, setting up RAID, and the beginnings of the instilation appears to go fine. But part way through it "sticks" at a screen asking for a "media change" to the CD which is already in the CD tray. Nothing I do appears to stop this (i.e. clicking 'go back', removing/inserting the CD, etc). I've even tried unplugging the network connection.

The specific error reads:
[!!] Install the base system
Please insert the disk labeled: 'Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS _Lucid Lynx_ -
release amd64 (20110211.3) in the drive '/cdrom/' and press enter.

Media change
<Go Back> <Continue>
How do I get past this point? (and yes, the red text is in red).
