Ubuntu Installation :: Netbook / When Boot From Usb Stick, Getting Error Unknown Keyword In Configuration File?

Oct 25, 2010

I'm having problems installing Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook onto my Asus 900. I downloaded the .iso then used the "make startup disc" feature in my Mint 9 desktop machine to make a usb install disk. All appears well at that point. When I try to boot from the usb stick, I get an error message as follows:

"SYSLINUX 363 Debien-2008-07-15 ......
Unknown Keyword in Configuration File
boot: "

and the cursor just hangs there and doesn't respond to the keyboard.

I also tried it on another Asus and a Gateway Laptop with the same results.

My intention is to have this the sole OS on my little Asus 900.

Ubuntu :: Unknown Keyword In Configuration File: Gfxboot?

Jan 12, 2011

recently got this message when USB booting:Unknown keyword in configuration file: gfxbootI used to have the "Unknown keyword in configuration file: ui" problem, which was spread throughout the forum. I know people have fixed it by removing the "ui" in the config file. This is what I did in /syslinux/syslinux.cfg

# D-I config version 2.0

Ubuntu Installation :: Xp And - Netbook Dual Boot - Error - Windows Boot Failed

Jul 8, 2010

I have a netbook running Windows XP as standard. There is also a recovery partition which came from the factory.

In the past I installed Ubuntu (I think 9.something) from USB key and all worked fine. However my XP became corrupted and I needed to do a repair on it. After this, Ubuntu became removed from the boot select menu.

Since then, Ubuntu has become updated to 10.04, which I now cannot install.

The Live CD tells me there is a "file IO error" and simply stops installation at around 70%.

I did manage to get into Ubuntu from a Live USB using Wubi. However when I chose to install Ubuntu to a Harddrive, the option to "install side by side" was missing.

After reading on the forums, I did a chkdsk /f on Windows and tried again. Now my liveUSB does not show a boot menu!

When I select to boot from USB stick, the screen goes blank with a flashing cursor. Ctrl+alt+dlt reboots.

I'm really lost here! It seems when I fix one problem, another problem arises!

Also when trying to instal Ubuntu within Windows, the process goes through to 100% and asks me to reboot. When I do so, the option for Ubuntu does show in the boot menu. However when I select it, I get an error "Windows boot failed: file wubildr.mbr and status: 0xc00000f - something is corrupt".

Ubuntu Installation :: From A USB Flash Memory Stick - Warning "VFS: Cannot Open Root Device "sda6" Or Unknown-block(0,0)" And Kernel Panic On First Boot

Apr 24, 2011

I am trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 from a USB flash memory stick. It works fine until around 95%, where I get the following warning/error:

[Code]....

I click OK and the installer seems to finish nicely, except the terminal throws several errors along these lines (see photo):

[Code]....

I tried also with 10.04 LTS, the difference being that the install warning appears two or three times instead of once. Some results from googling (Ubuntu Forums, Ubiquity bug) suggest unchecking the initial update options. I am going to try this but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get the boot loader right (there seemed to be problems with this).

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Get Netbook Edition Install On An Usb Stick

Dec 8, 2010

I own an eee pc 900a and would like to install [url] to it.

The eee pc hasn't got an CDROM drive so I have to convert the iso file to an img file to get it on an usb stick for installation.

This page describes how to do that with [url] with Windows, Mac or Ubuntu using usb-creato. But I have non of these available.

How can I convert the iso to an USB image with the help of debian ?

Ubuntu :: Getting The Netbook Boot Configuration

Feb 12, 2011

The ssd in my aspire1 netbook has given up the ghost so I'm running ubuntu off a live usb, which is bearable but not ideal. The aspire1 has two onboard sd card slots, but is not able to boot to them. So I was wondering if there's any way to have just the bootloader on the usb stick, which would then load the os files from the sd card?

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot - Error "Kernel Panic - Not Syncing:VFS:Unable To Mount Root Fs On Unknown-block(0,0)"

Oct 12, 2010

I started installing the beta of Maverick a few days ago, but the update server was running inordinately slow, so I canceled it. Several times, I have attempted to continue the installation, but I've been unable to reach the server. Shortly after this happened, I could no longer boot normally--I get the error:

Code: Kernel Panic - not syncing:VFS:Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0) Choosing the previous kernel fixes the problem.

So, I obviously want to upgrade to the release version now. When I open the update manager, I get asked if I want to do a partial upgrade to complete the install. I'm a bit leery of doing this since I only have one previous kernel to go back to (my list got really long and I have another operating system entry underneath, so I set my automagic boot manager to only keep two), and if I can no longer boot after the upgrade, I'll have to use Windows until it gets fixed... So, should I finish the upgrade, try to troubleshoot the error, or do something else to jump right to the latest release, after being partway through the upgrade?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot - Error - Unknown Filesystem

Oct 24, 2010

I am using Ubuntu 10.04 and am having a major issue with it not booting. My PC worked fine yesterday but when I tried to boot this morning I get the error "error: unknown filesystem" and under that I get the "grub rescue>" prompt.

At first I thought this was just a problem with Grub that would be easy fixed so I put in my Ubuntu USB and loaded it up in live mode. But when I try to look at my file system from within the live environment I can't seem to see any of my files.

I have looked at the drive in GParted and my main file system (/dev/sda1) shows up as 'unknown', while the swap partition (/dev/sda5) shows up as it should. I have also looked at the drive with the Disk Utility and the SMART Status says the disk is healthy.

I am really concerned about this as currently the system is totally unable to load, not only that but I am also unable to recover my data from the drive which is my main concern as I havent done a backup for quite some time and I have a lot of python code that I have been working on that I really need to get back.

Has anyone got any idea of what to do and how I might be able to sort this out or at the very least recover all my data. I can't understand why this has happened I have not made any changes to the system recently other than installing the updates that came through yesterday. This is a really urgent issue for me and any help will be very appreciated.

Ubuntu Servers :: Mysqld.pid File Error On 8.04.4 LTS - Unknown Variable

I'm running Ubuntu 8.04.4 LTS to host a moodle server in a school.. moodle is running OK - but I'm having problems with MySql Any mysql command generates:

unknown variable 'pid-file=/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid'

I've taken a look in unknown variable 'pid-file=/var/run/mysqld/ and there is no mysqld.pid file I have followed these instructions that I found elsewhere:

If there�s no mysqld.pid inside /var/run/mysqld directory, create mysqld.pid
# cd /var/run/mysqld
# touch mysqld.pid

But after reboot the mysqld.pid file is missing again.. I can access mysql via phpmyadmin - but webmin fails with unknown variable 'pid-file=/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.pid'

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot With Win7 - Bitlocker And TPM - Without The Usb-stick The Pc Won't Boot

Oct 18, 2010

I have searched and read threads about the Bitlocker, grub and TPM issues that might show up, but I can't draw any conclusions as some information contradict each other. To make sure I don't screw up my pc as thought I need to make a new post.

At work I'm supposed to run Windows 7 and encrypt the win-partition with Bitlocker. I have installed Windows, turned on the encryption and it ties into the TPM. But as I am moving over to the *nix department I want to run Ubuntu as dual boot to check everything rusn fine with all the systems I need. Before I installed Windows I partioned the disk:

1,5 GB for system/bitlocker requirement
147 GB for Windows, C:
85 GB which is empty where I intend to install Ubuntu (not formated yet)

I boot into Windows with my bitlocker/TPM key on an USB-stick. Without the usb-stick the pc won't boot. Now, before I try to install Ubuntu I want to make sure to do it the right so I don't mess up the Windows installation or won't be able to boot the pc at all.

There seem to be several "schools" to this. Some suggest I should have installed Ubuntu first, then Windows and then encrypt. Some say, no worries just fire away and install since you are not planning to read the windows-partition from Ubuntu. Or an alternative, install but make sure to deactive the encryption during installation. Some say, install but make sure grub is installed in (multiple choices) location.

Debian :: Unable To Boot From Grub 'error Unknown Command Initrd'

Feb 24, 2009

I'm running Debian testing and after a recent software update, suddenly I can no longer boot into my single Linux kernel image anymore. I did look at the software update before I did it and I don't believe that it removed any software packages. When I try to boot into my linux 2.6.26-1-amd64 image, I get the following message from grub:"error: unknown command `initrd'"..The same error appears if I try to boot into single-user mode. I have a Windows XP partition on the same hard disk and I am still able to boot into that from grub. I've searched the net and haven't really found my same problem replicated anywhere. I would imagine that the problem is just that somehow the initrd package got removed in my last software update, but again I don't recall seeing any software that the update planned to remove.

Any thoughts on how I would go about fixing this problem? Since I'm unable to get into Linux at all, I imagine I'll have to use a LiveCD to get in and fix the problem, but I don't know where to begin looking.

Ubuntu / Apple :: �error: Unknown File System Grub Rescue>� On Boot?

Apr 15, 2011

I previously had Ubuntu installed on my MBR. I deleted that partition (32 GB), resized my Mac partition back up to (250 GB), and then reduced it to 200 GB and created a new one with 50 GB via BootCamp to install Windows 7 from a DVD that I burnt (I got a Windows executable from MSDNAA that I used with Wine to obtain the ISO image. Insert rant about having to download Windows with a Windows executable here.).

I've tried burning two different DVDs. I used Burn on my Mac to burn a data DVD+R with the HFS+ and Joliet filesystems (I think) and then tried again with the ISO9660 and UDF filesystems. The latter has not shown any signs of working besides mounting on OS X. The first DVD would not boot whenever I held 'C' down at time of boot. So I went into BootCamp and clicked "Start Installation". It restarted my computer and this is where the real confusion comes up. I think that it tried booting via the empty partition. The reason I say this is that there are remnants of GRUB and when I boot, I get a screen that says this: error: unknown filesystemrub rescue>
