Ubuntu Installation :: LiveCD Works But Does Not Install

Nov 14, 2010

If I run Ubuntu 10.4 LIVE from CD everything works fine. However, when I try to install, it hangs up at about 23% (while installing Firefox). I thought my HD had a problem, but the same happened after checking it had no bad sectors and even after replacing it. Same as above using a CD of version 8.4 ( live works, install doesn't complete). Same trying the Alternate in place of the Desktop edition. With the same CD's I already installed successfully on other machines. Booting from USB SHOULD be possible ( according to BIOS settings ) but apparently it doesn't work.

Present machine characteristics :
AMD Athlon 2200+ 1.8 Ghz
512 MB RAM
HD EIDE 40 GB (Master of the Primary channel)
BIOS AMI dated 13-05-2003
Motherboard : no brand
Two EIDE CD drives (as Master and Slave of the Secondary channel).

Ubuntu Installation :: No Bootup After Install But LiveCD Works Great

Feb 10, 2011

No Bootup just a Black Screen with a frozen cursor after install, but LIVE CD works in 1024x768 mode? Well, I have a Sony Bravia 32xTV with HDMI input coming out of a ZOTAC nvidia type of card. The live CD will recognize the HDMI graphics card and Sony TV/monitor and thus works like Ubuntu normally does. But when I go to install to a hard drive and try to boot up I get just a Black Screen with a frozen cursor. I even have another Ubuntu 8.04 version running on the Sony Bravia TV , so no problem with TV end of things. what do I do now, oh great Ubuntu gurus out there in cyberland? what could I possibly do , what do I read, where do I go , what, where, who, how, when ,which way?

Ubuntu Installation :: Kubuntu LiveCD Fails But CD Works

Jun 20, 2010

I am able to boot from the Ubuntu 10.04 LiveCD fine, but the Kubuntu CD fails to boot. Trying to run Kubuntu sends me to a command line and after the first three steps of the install option I am again sent to a command the line. I have burnt and verified several Kubuntu CDs and each time I get this result. I am running Ubuntu, but I would like a fresh install of Kubuntu (I would rather not just install kubuntu-desktop).

OpenSUSE Wireless :: WiFi Internet Works On LiveCD But Not After Install

Nov 15, 2010

I am super new to linux. I have tried a lot of distros but went with OpenSUSE11.3. I have both gnome and kde live cd. Now to the problem, When I put in the live cd and boot - the computer finds the wireless card and lets me connect to the internet. This works on both versions. But after clicking on the install icon the wireless no longer starts and then I cant get it to work. Maybe its something I should be doing. After all I am new to this.

Ubuntu :: No Sound After Upgrade - Works On Livecd

Jun 13, 2010

I upgraded my desktop from 9.10 to 10.04 and I have no sound.

When I boot from the 10.04 livecd, sound works fine.

gnome-volume-control does not get loaded into the taskbar, when I run it from the console there is nothing listed under hardware.

I also tried creating a fresh new user account, no sound on that either but gnome-volume-control does get loaded into taskbar but still nothing under hardware.

aplay -l does list sound devices ...

Ubuntu Multimedia :: X-Server Works With LiveCD But Not On Installed 9.10

Jan 10, 2010

After a Christmas morning scramble trying to get Sims3 working for the kids, I ended up pulling an Nvidia 6200 AGP card out of a perfectly good Ubuntu box and threw it into the kids' PC. I replaced it in the Ubuntu system with an old Nvidia Geforce 2 Ti AGP. From the start I was unable to get any resolution higher than 800x600 with the GF2. Tried removing xserver-org, reinstalling, reconfiguring, etc. Installed the Nvidia legacy drivers, all no luck. Tried booting with a 9.10 live CD and it works perfectly - various resolutions, refreshes, etc. So, the card is capable. I've checked, rechecked, restored, modified xorg.conf to no success.

I'm at a text login now, startx returns (among other info) the following:
dlopen: /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nvidia_drv.so: undefined symbol: AllocateScreenPrivateIndex
(EE) Failed to load /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers//nvidia_drv.so
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (loader failed, 7)
(EE) No drivers available
Fatal server error:
no screens found

Now, I've checked, and nvidia_drv.so is where it's supposed to be (in the drivers directory). What concerns me is the "//" in the directory path string in the (EE) above preceding the driver name - shouldn't this be a "/"? Is the command not able to find the driver correctly? Regardless, at this point my goal is simply to get the system to use whatever process the live cd is using which results in a working GUI. Don't need fancy 3d, etc, just want a working system.

Ubuntu Networking :: Wireless Works With LiveCD Session But Not Without It

Jun 30, 2010

I am very new to this and tried searching for this problem in the forums but have not find anything. When I installed ubuntu (formatted HD), the installer gave an error but then seemed to proceed as normal and everything installed (from CD). However, when I boot up from Live CD all my wireless works fine (it detects networks, connects, etc.) When I boot up without the CD it says networking disabled and gives me no other options.

CentOS 5 Networking :: Wireless Works On LiveCD But Not When Installed

May 23, 2010

I've been using Linux for about 2 years now, mostly Ubuntu & derivatives, but I've also tried Fedora, Mandriva, and others. I wanted to give CentOS a try because I'm very interested in going for a Linux+ or similar certification, and so I'm looking to start learning how to configure & maintain Linux servers and so on. I have a friend who's a Linux sysadmin, and he recommended CentOS as a good learning tool.

Anyway, I've only got a wireless connection in my office at home (the actual cable modem is downstairs) so I intentionally chose a wireless adapter that would work with Linux -- it has a Realtek RLT8187 chip, for which there is support built into the kernel, or so I've read. It has worked out of the box in just about every distro I've tried, and indeed it worked OOTB when I tried out the CentOS 5.5 live CD.

However, when I actually installed the CentOS to my hard drive it no longer worked -- I have only a greyed out option for a wired connection (presumably since my motherboard has an ethernet adapter, but there is no connection). Why the wireless would work in the live session but not after install? Is there a firmware file or something I need to track down? I did look on this page, but it doesn't mention anything about RTL8187.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot After LiveCD Install

Jan 31, 2011

I have Fedora 14 installed on my laptop (Installed with few issues) and I'm trying to install ubuntu on my desktop. I had ubuntu 10.04 installed before on a second (250gb) hard drive (Windows 7 on the other 1TB drive) with a few issues and kinda screwed a few things up trying to upgrade to 10.10. So, I said screw it, and downloaded the live .iso for 10.10 (x64) and burned it to disk. I boot from the live CD and choose the install option to use entire 250Gb disk. I choose my options, including to download updates and install 3rd party software and let the install run its course. Everything seems to be going fine and it asks me to restart. So I say yes, the disk pops out and the screen goes dark... and then nothing happens. The computer's still on but hasn't restarted yet. I hit the del key (Which I use to enter BIOS) and the computer finally restarts. I enter BIOS and tell it to boot from the 250Gb HDD, save and exit. However, it gets stuck at the point where it (It, I assume to be the motherboard) says "Loading Operations System ..." and with a blinking cursor on the line underneath. Nothing happeneds.

I tried again just this morning using the same procedure. I'm once again stuck at the "Loading Operating System .." screen.

EDIT: After poking around a bit more, I remembered I was confronted by a GRUB menu when I booted into Windows 7 HDD. So, I selected Linux from the menu and all seems good. Does anyone know why this is? It's very odd, well at least to me. Why would GRUB be on the windows hard drive? Is this something I should be concerned about?

Ubuntu Installation :: LiveCD/Install Blank Screen On New Dell?

Oct 13, 2010

I just bought a new Dell Latitude E6510. When I boot from the Ubuntu 10.10 64bit disk (I've checked the disk for errors already), the initial, purple splash screen comes up, but then the screen just goes blank and stays that way. I never even see a grub screen.I tried Linux Mint 9 with both the 64 bit DVD and the 32 bit CD. Both Mint disks bring up a grub boot screen, but then the screen goes blank just like Ubuntu 10.10. I can hear Mint's "login" sound, but nothing shows up on the screen

Ubuntu Installation :: Livecd Installer Freezes And Parted Crashes / How Can I Install

Dec 27, 2010

I was trying to fix gparted (it was crashing whenever it started) and then when I would type my password in the login screen, the screen would flash back and then the login screen would come back. If I logged in in a terminal and then did startx, it would just show a black screen. I figured it was broken. I made an Ubuntu 10.10 liveCD and booted it up and clicked on the installer thing and then it froze and an error thing popped up saying Parted crashed.

Essentially what I need to do is install Ubuntu without using the partition GUI.Can I try to find a thing that will let me make an empty EXT4 partition and then a thing to let me install Ubuntu to it?

Fedora Installation :: Graphics Fail F11 LiveCD Install

I am trying to Install Fedora 11 from a live install CD. I know it works because I tried it on another system. After the little Balloon that shows its loading completes the screen scrambles, later a mouse pointer appears then freezes shortly after. When I remove Quiet from Kernel Params. Lots of text then Samething.. Scrambled Screen the Freeze. I have tried adding the Following Parameters to the Kernel (nomodeset, xdriver=vesa, acpi=noirq, noapic). This sounds like a common problem with ATI based graphics and all answers seem to point the "nomodeset" and the "xdriver=vesa" but they dont seem to help.

Fedora Installation :: Best Install Method - LiveCD Or Netinstall?

Aug 25, 2011

I have finally decided to bite the bullet and upgrade my current Linux system from Fedora Core 2 to Fedora 15. When checking the download page and from reading another thread there is apparently no isos' available for an set of install CDs. An iso is only available for DVD. Since my machine does not have a DVD drive that is obviously not an option. In the past I have only installed from a set CDs and I'm not sure which install method is the best to use. I do have a DSL internet connection and will probably need to increase my partitions sizes. Which install method do you recommend and why?

Ubuntu Installation :: Sony Vaio - LiveCD And Install Work But Restart Freezes

Dec 27, 2010

I've happily finished a SWE course that required VS2010, and thus a new computer to run the hog. Now that the course is done, I'm installing Ubuntu. As the post title implies, the live CD works well and the install goes fine. I'm able to boot up in Ubuntu and do an update. After that, though, Ubuntu freezes on boot. It gets as far as the moving dots but freezes right after that.

Ubuntu Installation :: Neither 10.10 CD Or USB Install Works

Dec 5, 2010

This is an existing bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/636711) but since there doesn't seem to be too much happening over there, I thought I'd post this development here to see if anyone can make something out of it. Basically, any attempt to launch a (MDSUM-confirmed) CD or USB image of 10.10 will fail on certain computers. The install process fails, leaving a message like:

Quote: mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on /filesystem.squashfs failed: input/output error

Now here's the new development. I have two nearly identical Compaq Evo desktops at the office and one fails as above while the other loads and installs 10.10 perfectly (using the same USB disk). I would imagine that this would make a good test case for the bug, so I've posted the lshw output from both machines (one running 10.10 and other running 8.10) here [URL]

Ubuntu Installation :: Live CD, Upgrade And Install Fail On 9.10 And 10.04 - 9.04 Works?

May 23, 2010

My first upgrade attempt to 9.10 ruined my install - there was no return and as 9.10 would not install either, I reinstalled 9.04 and everything was as expected.I decided to wait for 10.04 hoping the issue had been solved - unluckily it has NOT. Neither Live CD 9.10 nor 10.04 work. New Mint does not work either - to closely related to Ubuntu, but Suse live CD does. Played around with findings from different threads - like taking out "quiet splash --" and adding modprob parameter to no avail Prime suspect is HD and HD controller (ATA/PATA) - but I could not nail it.

Ubuntu Installation :: Live CD Works But No Display After Install / Solution For This?

Oct 10, 2010

I have this problem where the 10.10 LiveCD 64-bit works (as in I get full resolution display and no video issues at all). But after install, the OS boots successfully but there's no display. I know it's successful because I was able to login in the dark (sound works).

Here's what I have:
HP m9340f (NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS with HDMI)
46" Sharp connected via HDMI
Windows 7, works fine.

Here's what I tried with no luck:
1. CTRL-ALT-F1 still doesn't show anything on screen, no terminal
2. Connected via VGA
3. Connected another 17" monitor via VGA, rebooted
4. Added vga=789 in grub before booting

The weird thing is that I had 10.04 before and it was working for a while then it suddenly stopped working. I figured I'd wait until 10.10 but I now have the same issue. I haven't tried 32-bit... I can give that a shot in a bit.

Ubuntu Installation :: LiveCD Crashed On "Try", Install Freezes On Creating Ext4 Fs, 11.04 Sux0r?

May 5, 2011

I burned my liveCD very slowly and checked it for integrity. It works fine on, for example, my dell inspiron 1012 netbook.

I am able to create the partitions etc and am shooting for a win7 dual boot. Don't want wubi or the like.

I am unable to boot the liveCD or even install the OS as it hangs on clicking "Try" and the install hangs on "Creating ext4 fs on / "

Also the 11.04 CD seems to have a lot of issues based on my browsing the top few pages of the forum.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install / LiveCD Freeze At "scrolling Dots" / Change Boot Options Will Allow It To Work?

May 26, 2011

I'm trying to install (L)ubuntu on an old AMD 1.66GHz based HP laptop, to dual boot with Windows XP. However I'm running into an issue that I haven't come across on any other machine before where after selecting "Install Lubuntu" from the main boot menu, it moves to the scrolling dots splash/loading screen and after ~30 sec or a minute it freezes. There is no error, it doesn't reboot or eject the disk even after several hours of sitting on that splash screen, with the dots frozen, no CD activity, and no HDD activity. I get the same result if I try to boot it as a LiveCD as well.

Can someone help diagnose whats going on? Is it possible changing some boot options will allow it to install? I'm not quite sure where to go with this one.

Installation :: Linux Install Works / Can't Access Windows As Before

Jun 15, 2010

I had some issues with Wubi installations of Ubuntu, so I figured out how to create a LiveCD and to install from the CD. I am working on Linux now and I am having no issues as far as the Penguin goes. I hash-checked the iso and used older CDs more suited for booting.I chose to install from the CD, and I selected the option which partitions and installs Linux alongside Windows. I was prompted to import some user folders from my Windows Vista, and I agreed. These appeared in Linux and also work fine.

However, after a few hours of messing with my new Linux, I restarted and I realized all I have in my boot menu now are some Linux options, memory test, and a Vista loader & vista recovery. I had intended to have a dual boot system. Did I delete my Windows without meaning to, or can I change the bootloading process somehow to include both Linux and Vista?

Upon selecting the Vista Loader, I was asked if I wanted to recover my files, etc. I refrained because I wasn't sure what the effect would be on Linux. Is there a way to have both Vista and Linux show up normally in my boot menu, or will I have to go back and forth recovering every time I chose to use the other OS?The only reason I still want to use Windows occasionally is because I had Maple software in Windows which was useful for school.

Ubuntu Networking :: LinuxWiMAX - Firmware Installation - Modem Works Fine But Failing To Install Drivers

I switched from windows to Ubuntu 10.10. But I'm not getting along with it as well as I expected I would Specially cause I'm not getting the best out of it due to limited web connectivity. I used to use a usb WiMax modem back in windows (which is also supposed to be supported by linux as my service provider said) for internet. But I'm having a hard time configuring it on my Ubuntu. The modem works fine but I'm failing to install the drivers [url]. I used my cell as a temporary modem to get help from the web.

I downloaded:-
i2400m firmware 1.5.0
WiMAX Tools 1.4.5
WiMAX Network Service 1.5.2

According to the documentation, I'm supposed to install the linux kernel 2.6.35 which Maverick comes with anyway.

Then comes the part to install the firmware. The command I used was


But unfortunately and annoyingly the result is

I think "forgotten" by the generic drivers for ATI or something that influences the video. it does not show. 9.10,10.04,10.10 none of those versions worked ... on other computers functioned normally. I found researching how to dribble and go to live. and thus unable to install. but does not work after the pc restarts. Linux does not. shows nothing ... goes to black screen with the (- FLASHING) but nothing else happens.

Ubuntu Installation :: LiveCD Starts Installation By Itself And Stops At Error / Fix It/

Jun 30, 2010

A friend of mine has asked me to install Ubuntu for a long time. Today I set up his partitions with Lucid LiveCD and GParted.

However, the LiveCd throws an error that makes me hesitant to continue.

If I boot a LiveCD on my computer I get a question meaning "run Live or install?"

This question does not appear on my friends computer. The first thing you see (about 2 min after boot) is an alertpanel saying something like "The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. We will now set up a desktop environment so you can investigate the problem." After that the normal Lucid (Live) desktop appears and functions well, as far as I can understand.

Sorry for not being able to give more data about my friends system. It is a stationary computer about 2 yrs old, running XP. I can't really make investigations on his system either. I had hoped to go there next time and just install Lucid.

Maybe one should try the alternate installer, but my friend just got used to the LiveCD and I would therefore like to use the LiveCD.

I don't understand why it seems to start installation by itself.

Most of all. I wonder if it is a good idea to run the installation from the desktop icon? Maybe it will encounter the same error that the LiveCd seems to encounter at startup?
