Ubuntu Installation :: RAID 0 & 9.10 - Rebuilding Grub And Wouldn't Work

Feb 1, 2010

I started out with a RAID 0 of 3x 500GB drives. Partitioned to a 200gb Windows 7 install (plus the 100mb partition), a 50gb partition I was going to use for Ubuntu 9.10, and the around 1081GB NTFS storage partition. It wouldn't work, I tried a bunch of things, EasyBCD, ect, rebuilding grub, and everything else... wouldn't work for me. So I gave up, backed up everything and then rebuilt my RAID into to "separate" drives so that I could just change the booting drive depending on the flavour of frustration I was looking for at the time. Installed W7 back, installed Ub9.10 back. Windows loaded through it's drive fine. Ubuntu will not freaking load. So I ran a script I found laying around on one of the many.... MANY posts I read and will attach the outcome.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot - Rebuilding GRUB

Nov 21, 2010

through a series of mistakes i have managed to take a working system and make it unable to boot. my two objectives right now are to back up my data, and to make my system bootable. here's how i got here. i used the Upgrade Manager to upgrade to 10.04 thinking it would solve a problem i was having with my previous installation. when that had completed i found I was unable to boot into 10.04. The system would hang after echoing the message "checking battery state." I attempted to rebuild my grub file, thinking this would solve the 'battery state' problem. this was a mistake. I ended up deleting it, and now there's no menu.lst file in its place.

currently when i boot up normally (i.e., with no Live CD) I automatically go into the rescue mode. so far i haven't managed to enter a command that rescue mode recognizes. alternatively, i can boot from the installation CD for Ubuntu 10.04. per this page: [URL] I take these steps:

1. boot from the installation CD.
2. go into terminal
3. type these commands:

OpenSUSE Install :: Dvd Reset - Update Wouldn't Work - MSwindows In The Grub Boot Menu Disappeared

May 28, 2010

I have a dual boot system: windows xp and suse(10.2). I had to reinstall windows(again). When I tried to use the installer, it kept reseting my partitions to 500gb+ to linux. Nothing I tried would let me put it to the way it was(50gb to linux). Repair install failed. Update wouldn't work. MSwindows in the grub boot menu disappeared. I tried reinstalling suse. The installer blocked any attempt by me to put the partitions back to normal. How do reset the windows and linux partitions(850gb windows, 50gb to suse linux)?

Ubuntu :: Raid Array Won't Mount Since Rebuilding - Bad Geometry?

Jun 15, 2010

I had run out of space on a 30GB raid1 partition so I rebuilt it as I had three 30GB partitions on a pair of 120GB drives. I stopped the array and used gparted to create a single 120GB partition on one of the disks. I then copied the data from all three partitions on the other drive onto this newly cleared space, before zapping that too. So I now had two drives with identical single partitions, one of which had all my data and lots of space. I used mdadm to create a new array from the two disks, which looked good. It immediately started to resync the data onto the second drive. However, when I tried to mount the new array this is what I get:

Code:

bob@zaphod:~$ sudo mount -t ext4 /dev/md0 /media/raid/
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/md0,
missing codepage or helper program, or other error

[code]....

I can mount the drives independently and GOOD NEWS the data is there! However, how can I get round this problem and mount the raid array.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub - Setup: Warning: Attempting To Install GRUB To A Partition Instead Of The MBR - Install - Lvm - Luks - Raid - Karmic Server

Mar 27, 2010

I'm running Karmic Server with GRUB2 on a Dell XPS 420. Everything was running fine until I changed 2 BIOS settings in an attempt to make my Virtual Box guests run faster. I turned on SpeedStep and Virtualization, rebooted, and I was slapped in the face with a grub error 15. I can't, in my wildest dreams, imagine how these two settings could cause a problem for GRUB, but they have. To make matters worse, I've set my server up to use Luks encrypted LVMs on soft-RAID. From what I can gather, it seems my only hope is to reinstall GRUB. So, I've tried to follow the Live CD instructions outlined in the following article (adding the necessary steps to mount my RAID volumes and LVMs). [URL]

If I try mounting the root lvm as 'dev/vg-root' on /mnt and the boot partition as 'dev/md0' on /mnt/boot, when I try to run the command $sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/md0, I get an errors: grub-setup: warn: Attempting to install GRUB to a partition instead of the MBR. This is a BAD idea. grub-setup: error: Embedding is not possible, but this is required when the root device is on a RAID array or LVM volume.

Somewhere in my troubleshooting, I also tried mounting the root lvm as 'dev/mapper/vg-root'. This results in the grub-install error: $sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/ /dev/md0 Invalid device 'dev/md0'

Obviously, neither case fixes the problem. I've been searching and troubleshooting for several hours this evening, and I must have my system operational by Monday morning. That means if I don't have a solution by pretty early tomorrow morning...I'm screwed. A full rebuild will by my only option.

Ubuntu Installation :: GRUB Onto RAID 5?

Aug 23, 2010

So, I recently installed Ubuntu on a (now) Triplebooting RAID 5 system. However, the setup was not able to install GRUB. This means I cannot boot into Ubuntu currently. The following are acceptable outcomes for me:

1) Installing GRUB as the primary bootloader, allowing me to boot into Linux, Windows 7, or Windows XP.

2) Installing GRUB as the primary bootloader, but allowing me to boot into the Windows 7 Bootloader as well as Ubuntu.

3) Installing GRUB as a secondary bootloader that can be accessed through the Windows 7 Bootloader.

My current config, according to gparted with kpartx installed is:

Ubuntu Networking :: Internet Input Wouldn't Work

Jan 20, 2011

I'm running 10.10 on two different laptops at home, via an Apple Airport Express. I wanted to use audiopulse to stream my music, o I installed that, and the Airport express utility for windows using Wine.I got everything working swimmingly, then my internet input wouldn't work. I can, say, upload from Transmission, but not use browsers or download anything. In a stupid fit of panic, I uninstalled everything I had set up, to see if that would help, and reset all I could. Still nothing, and now my sound is gone.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 64, GRUB Can't Boot XP In RAID-1

Jan 12, 2010

I'm a long time windows user and it-tech but I have long felt that my geek-levels were too low so I installed Ubuntu last week (9.10 x64). Hopefully I can make it my primary OS. I have two 80GB drives in RAID-1 from my nforce raid controller, nforce 570 chipset. Then a 320 GB drive where I placed ubuntu and it's also where grub placed itself. And also a 1TB drive.

When grub tries to boot XP I get the error message: "error: invalid signature" I checked the forum as much as I could and tried a few things, but no change.

Drives sdc and sdd are the two drives in raid, they are matched exactly, but detected as different here. I really think they should be seen as one drive.

how I can make grub work as it should?

Also, if/when I need to make changes to grub, do I really have to use the live CD?

Code:
============================= Boot Info Summary: ==============================
=> Grub 1.97 is installed in the MBR of /dev/sda and looks on the same drive
in partition #1 for /boot/grub.
=> Windows is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdb
=> Windows is installed in the MBR of /dev/sdc

Ubuntu :: Mdadm Raid + GRUB = Not Booting - Error: Unsupported RAID Version: 0.91

Jul 18, 2011

I have a raid5 on 10 disk, 750gb and it have worked fine with grub for a long time with ubuntu 10.04 lts. A couple of days ago I added a disk to the raid, growd it and then resized it.. BUT, I started the resize-process on a terminal on another computer, and after some time my girlfriend powered down that computer!
So the resize process cancelled in the middle and i couldn't acess any of the HDDs so I rebooted the server.

Now the problem, the system is not booting up, simple black with a blinking line. Used a rescue CD to boot it up, finised the resize-process and the raid seems to be working fine so I tried to boot normal again. Same problem. Rescue cd, updated grub, got several errors: error: unsupported RAID version: 0.91. I have tried to purge grub, grub-pc, grub commmon, removed /boot/grub and installed grub again. Same problem.

I have tried to erased mbr (# dd if=/dev/null of=/dev/sdX bs=446 count=1) on sda (ide disk, system), sdb (sata, new raid disk). Same problem. Removed and reinstalled ubuntu 11.04 and is now getting error: no such device: (hdd id). Again tried to reinstall grub on both sda and sdb, no luck. update-grub is still generating error about raid id 0.91 and is back on a blinking line on normal boot. When you'r resizeing a raid MDADM changed the ID from 0.90 to 0.91 to prevent something that happend happened. But since I have completed the resize-process MDADM have indeed changed the ID back to 0.90 on all disks.

I have also tried to follow a howto on a similar problem with a patch on [URL] But I cant compile, various error about dpkg. So my problem is, I cant get grub to work. It just gives me a blinking line and unsupported RAID version: 0.91.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Multi Boot With Raid 0

Mar 20, 2011

There have been many postings on doing Raid 0 setups, and it seems the best way looks like softRaid, but there were some arguments for fakeRaid in dual boot situations. I've seen some posts on dual boot windows/linux in Raid 0, but I was hoping to do a multi-boot using a grub partition, with several Linux distros and Windows 7. There will also be a storage disk for data, but not in the array. From what I gather, I'll need a grub partition which can only reside on one of the two disks, one swap partition on each disk, then the rest I can stripe.

I've got two 73GB WD raptor drives to use for the OS's and programs. I'm just getting my feet wet with the terminal in linux (Ubuntu makes it way too easy to stay in GUI), and the inner workings of the OS, so I have several questions:

Is this going to be worth the effort? Obviously I'm trying to boost performance in boot and run times, but with Grub on a single drive, will I see much gain?

Does this sound like the right methodology (softRAID)? I only have two spare PCI slot's, which don't seem like they would be condusive to hardware raid, but someone who knows more could convince me otherwise.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing With Raid 0 - Grub: No Such Device

Jun 29, 2011

I have a raid 0 setup with 2 x 1TB drives. I have an ASUS P8P67 LE motherboard and am using Interl RST for the Raid setup. I'm utterly ignorant of raid and therefore forgive any mistakes... I already had windows 7 installed and was attempting to dual boot ubuntu.

I installed Ubuntu from CD. The raid was picked up properly as only one drive by ubuntu. So it picked up the windows MBR and the main windows partition. I resized the main partition and used the "install ubuntu and windows 7 side by side" option. Installation went fine but once I restarted the PC I was welcomed by a grub rescue screen with the message: "error: no such device e196.....". Edit: I used the Windows 7 disc to repair the windows bootloader so I can now boot into Windows 7.

Before doing so I used gparted on the live cd to check the partitions on the drives. The only ones present were the MBR and windows one. So ubuntu seemingly didn't install... Although GRUB did... I was advised by someone on the ubuntu IRC chat to avoid trying to reinstall ubuntu at that point just in case there was an error in the partitioning process. I've since checked the state of the partitions from within windows and there's the MBR partiton, the windows partiton AND the partition that I created for ubuntu... 965MB of the partition that I created is listed as used space as well...

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Install Grub On RAID Array

Feb 3, 2011

I'm trying to switch to a new RAID5 array but can't get it to boot. My disks:/dev/sda: new RAID member

/dev/sdb: Windows disk
/dev/sdc: new RAID member
/dev/sdd: old disk, currently using /dev/sdd3 as /

The RAID array is /dev/md0, which is comprised of /dev/sda1 and /dev/sdc1. I have copied the contents of /dev/sdd3 to /dev/md0, and can mount /dev/md0 and chroot into it. I did this:

Code:

sudo mount /dev/md0 /mnt/raid
sudo mount --bind /dev /mnt/raid/dev
sudo mount --bind /proc /mnt/raid/proc

[code]....

This completes with no errors, and /boot/grub/grub.cfg looks correct[EDIT: No it doesn't. It has root='(md/0)' instead of root='(md0)']. For example, here's the first entry:

Code:

### BEGIN /etc/grub.d/10_linux ###
menuentry 'Ubuntu, with Linux 2.6.35-25-generic' --class ubuntu --class gnu-linu
x --class gnu --class os {

However, when I try to boot from /dev/sda, I get:

Code:

Ubuntu Installation :: Blank Screen On Boot - GRUB With RAID

Mar 19, 2011

I am trying to install Ubuntu Server 10.10 on a computer with 5x 1.5 TB HDDs. I went through the process of partitioning the five hard drives into three partitions each:

sd*0 is a 300MB partition for /boot, RAID1, 2 active, 3 spare
sd*1 is a 500MB partition for swap, RAID1, 2 active, 3 spare
sd*2 is a 1.5TB partition for /, RAID5+LVM, 5 active, 0 spare.
md0 is the raid1 on sd*0
md1 is the raid1 on sd*1
md2 is the raid2 on sd*2

During the install, everything seemed to work fine with the formatter, but the installation ended in error. I booted into rescue mode and found that though all the drives were U (in /proc/mdstat), it was resyncing. I let this run (overnight) and the next day, jumped back in and installed the OS successfully.

However, after installing GRUB, when the installation process asked me to reboot, the system came back up with a blank screen (blank, save for a blinking cursor) and didn't move from there. I am thinking that the problem is GRUB, since I can boot into the main LVM partition via the rescue option on the install cd. Here's what bugs me:

General :: RAID And Grub 2 On Ubuntu Karmic Koala (installation)

Feb 11, 2010

I've been trying to get Grub 2 to work on a desktop system I'm trying to install Karmic Koala on. It's currently got two similar hard drives, which I've partitioned into a small /boot partition and the rest as a large general partition. Both are fd (linux software RAID) types. I boot from the Ubuntu live CD then create the RAID arrays as RAID 1 (requires installing mdadm to work). Then I start the arrays and begin the install.

I select manual partitioning and create the first RAID array (/dev/md0) as an ext4 /boot. The second array (/dev/md1) requires a new partition table. I then partition it as 20G for /, 2G for swap and the rest as /home, giving me /dev/md1p1, /dev/md1p2 and /dev/md1p3. When the install finishes, I mount the various partitions in /mnt (for /dev/md1p1) and below, including binding /dev and /proc. Then I chroot and install mdadm in the new system. I update grub, re-install it on /dev/sda & /dev/sdb then update the initramfs.

A quick reboot and things go wrong... Grub boots me into a recovery console. Apparently it can't see the partitions in the second RAID array. how to get Grub 2 and/or mdadm to work in this situation? I know that apart from the RAID, the above process worked to allow me to set up a Grub 2 boot on an antique laptop with an incomplete install.

Ubuntu Installation :: Boot/grub/win7 - Testdisk/update-grub Method, But It Didn't Work?

Mar 4, 2011

I have 2 hard disks. sda,sdb

In sda, I have 4 partitions, and I have windows 7 in one of the extended partitions [not in the primary partition].

In sdb, I have 3 partitions. 2 for storage, and 1 10GB drive for Ubuntu. Again, Ubuntu is not of a primary partition.

I had ubuntu 10.04 running on that for a long time. However, I wanted to reinstall ubuntu and use 10.10.This is what I did EXACTLY:Booted from Ubuntu install CD

Chose advanced istall

Selected sdb3 for Ubuntu

I installed GRUB2 on the SAME partition as Ubuntu aka sdb3 Installed then rebooted

I can boot into Ubuntu fine, but whenever I select Windows 7 bootloader from the GRUB menu, the screen goes black, and my PC reboots.

Boot Info:

Ubuntu Installation :: Kernel Upgrade To 2.6.32-23-generic Broke My LVM - RAID And GRUB

Jul 4, 2010

I recently updated the kernel to the newest version(2.6.32-23-generic) using the update manager and now I am unable to boot in to my Lucid installation.

My setup is LVM on top of a RAID 0 array. My computer had been running in this configuration since Lucid was released.

The Error Code I get on Boot is to the effect of: /dev/mapper/ubuntu-os is not available.. and then I get kicked in to Busy Box.

Once in Busy Box if I try to use mdadm to mount the RAID array I get this error:

If I boot in to the live CD I can mount all of the partitions and LVM volumes, so it does not appear to be a failed drive or volume.

I have looked in the mdadm.conf, lvm config and grub config files and searched the "Google" for an answer with no-avail...

Ultimately I would like to find a solution which doesn't involve a re-installation.

Ubuntu Installation :: RAID 0 And Win7 Dual Boot - Grub Cannot Install

Sep 13, 2010

I'm having serious troubles to install ubuntu-10.04.1. My raid is an hardware raid with intel chipset. Note that win7 is already installed and working with my raid. I made some space from windows, to install Ubuntu (40gb). First, I run the installer, everything seems to be fine. I choose to install Ubuntu were there is the most space free (sorry, I'm not sure about the real terms used there).

Then my partition with the vista loader appears. So the installer can see my raid, and should work fine (everything is detected correctly). But once I'm in the end of the installation (around 95%), a pop-up appears, and tells me that Grub can't install in /dev/sda and it's a fatal error. I can choose an another destination, but it doesn't seems to work.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Fails To Install On Hardware Raid Partition / Proceed It?

No matter which ubuntu version at 95% through the install it will complain that grub failed to install.

I'm installing this on an HP XW6600 with hardware raid striped.

I can use the supergrub rescue CD to boot to ubutu after, but whatever I do doesn't seem to get grub installed.

Any ideas on how to proceed? I'm guessing I need to install grub from scratch.

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual-boot On A RAID-0 Array - Drops To GRUB Command Line?

May 28, 2011

I've recently had trouble reinstalling my Ubuntu system as I was getting various unusual errors as described in my old thread here. I thought it was probably something to do with my RAID-0 array which was pre-installed on my laptop from purchase being corrupted or something like that (if it's possible). I decided to simplify things for myself (not understanding RAID arrays much) so I just removed the RAID array and installed Windows and Ubuntu on the now separate hard disks. It worked fine.

I noticed quite a significant performance drop, however, with even Ubuntu boots taking longer than 30 seconds despite my laptop being both high-spec and only a few months old. Windows, as you can imagine, was dreadfully slow. I wasn't entirely convinced that this was entirely due to the loss of the RAID array - as even low-spec laptops with presumably no RAID arrays are supposed to boot Ubuntu in under 30 seconds apparently - but I read that RAID-0 arra

Debian Installation :: Grub Rescue - Will Not Boot From Mdadm RAID - No Such Disk

Sep 19, 2014

I am running a 14 disk RAID 6 on mdadm behind 2 LSI SAS2008's in JBOD mode (no HW raid) on Debian 7 in BIOS legacy mode.

Grub2 is dropping to a rescue shell complaining that "no such device" exists for "mduuid/b1c40379914e5d18dddb893b4dc5a28f".

Output from mdadm:
Code: Select all    # mdadm -D /dev/md0
    /dev/md0:

      Creation Time : Wed Nov  7 17:06:02 2012

      Used Dev Size : 2930037248 (2794.30 GiB 3000.36 GB)
       Raid Devices : 14

[Code] ....

Output from blkid:
Code: Select all    # blkid
    /dev/md0: UUID="2c61b08d-cb1f-4c2c-8ce0-eaea15af32fb" TYPE="xfs"

[Code] ....

The UUID for md0 is `2c61b08d-cb1f-4c2c-8ce0-eaea15af32fb` so I do not understand why grub insists on looking for `b1c40379914e5d18dddb893b4dc5a28f`.

**Here is the output from `bootinfoscript` 0.61. This contains alot of detailed information, and I couldn't find anything wrong with any of it: [URL] .....

During the grub rescue an `ls` shows the member disks and also shows `(md/0)` but if I try an `ls (md/0)` I get an unknown disk error. Trying an `ls` on any member device results in unknown filesystem. The filesystem on the md0 is XFS, and I assume the unknown filesystem is normal if its trying to read an individual disk instead of md0.

I have come close to losing my mind over this, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling grub numerous times, `update-initramfs -u -k all` numerous times, `update-grub` numerous times, `grub-install` numerous times to all member disks without error, etc.

I even tried manually editing `grub.cfg` to replace all instances of `mduuid/b1c40379914e5d18dddb893b4dc5a28f` with `(md/0)` and then re-install grub, but the exact same error of no such device mduuid/b1c40379914e5d18dddb893b4dc5a28f still happened.

[URL] ....

One thing I noticed is it is only showing half the disks. I am not sure if this matters or is important or not, but one theory would be because there are two LSI cards physically in the machine.

This last screenshot was shown after I specifically altered grub.cfg to replace all instances of `mduuid/b1c40379914e5d18dddb893b4dc5a28f` with `mduuid/2c61b08d-cb1f-4c2c-8ce0-eaea15af32fb` and then re-ran grub-install on all member drives. Where it is getting this old b1c* address I have no clue.

I even tried installing a SATA drive on /dev/sda, outside of the array, and installing grub on it and booting from it. Still, same identical error.

Ubuntu Installation :: (initramfs) Prompt After Alternate CD 9.10 With RAID - Grub Loading: Biosdisk Read Error

Jan 13, 2010

I am trying to install Ubuntu on a nvidia board which, based on the forums I have perused, is a FAKERaid chipset. Originally I tried to install according to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/FakeRaidHowto to no avail. I gave up and am resorting to breaking down my raid setup (thus losing my Windows XP installation) and using Linux's software raid (which seems to be the recommended method) with the Alternate CD install.

I went in to the bios and completely disabled my board's RAID function. I then followed the instructions here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...n/SoftwareRAID , except it popped up with a window advising me "one or more serial ATA RAID configurations have been found. Do you wish to activate these RAID devices?" which that page didn't mention. I believe I selected "Yes". Setting up the partitions I made (from beginning of disk to end of disk) a RAID1 200MB /boot partition, a RAID0 / partition (90GB?), free space not set up in RAID (approx 20GB for each SATA drive to later install Windows on [if that's even possible]) & then the SWAP partition 2GB at the end of one of the disks (is it OK that this one wasn't in RAID?).

The installation completed, as far as I can tell, without a hitch. Except also of note: my network card doesn't work in the installer (gives an error message about unable to configure dhcp) so i'm not connected to the internet. Then I restart and the following appears: grub loading: error: biosdisk read error. Followed by what appears to be the Ubuntu loading splash (just a small white shape in the middle of the screen), and then:

Debian Installation :: How Long Takes Rebuilding Official Kernel ?

Jan 2, 2011

Here are 2 questions

1.In the last line of the debian kernel handbook 4.2.2 Applying patches

It is possible to apply extra patches to the source before starting the build. First, you should apply the existing patches by running:

You will then find the patched source in the subdirectories debian/build/source_arch_none (default) and debian/build/source_arch_featureset (featuresets added).

You should apply the extra patches in the appropriate subdirectory. where can I find the "extra patchies" and how to do?

2.Even though More than 8 hours have passed, 4.2.3 Building many packages

To build all possible packages for this architecture, run:

To build all architecture-dependent packages, run:

To build all architecture-independent packages, run:

The 1st command still working. what is the all possible packages? and what I am doing?

I am just trying to rebuild debian linux kernel 2.6.26-2, Did I misunderstand?

array 2:
slot 2 & 3

during the installation, the installer detect the array 2 as sda and array 1 as sdb.. so i proceed with installation on array 2. after completed the installation, the first reboot lead me to a 'grub-rescue" prompt. by following the guide at url Mode, i've noticed that the boot folder has changed to (hd1,1), which i believe it has changed to sdb1. default root device shows that prefix=(hd0,1)/grub.

Ubuntu Installation :: The USB That Wouldn't Boot #1,971,004

Nov 4, 2010

- Im using 3 different USB keys, a 1gb, another 1gb, and a 4gb, the 4gb being the newest, and one of the 1gb might be early usb2.0.
- My motherboard has options in the bios for both USB HDD and FDD, and even USB ZIP drives. I set the boot order to USB FDD, then USB HDD, then HDD.
- I am trying to get Damn Small Linux 4.4.9 to work.
- When the screen after the motherboard logo is loading, it recognizes both my USB HDD and the FDD, displaying both names for each, and their capacity. But it just then skips to the dual boot options for my 160GB OS HDD.
- Legacy USB is enabled
- I'm using the actual ports on the mother board, not the front pannel ports.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 AMD64 - Wouldn't Boot Into The Installer

Jul 11, 2010

I've spent a frustrating afternoon trying to install Xubuntu 10.04 x64. I had already installed Win7 Pro 64, and have been attempting to install on a separate hard drive. It wouldn't even boot into Xubuntu install. Figured a bad burn on the Cd so I reburned the image I had down loaded using Ktorrent. It wouldn't boot either. I swapped out the DVD burner. Still no go. Redownloaded using Ktorrent including the torrent. Wouldn't boot into the installer.

I did a fresh burn. Still it wouldn't boot to the installer. I then downloaded Xubuntu again but from a mirror and not using Ktorrent. Good MD5SUM. Burned it again on another computer. Still wouldn't boot into the installer. I burned a copy of Kubuntu 10.04 x64 and it installed with no difficulty. I've installed Xubuntu 10.04 x86 several times on other computers win no difficulty. But I have 8 Gb of RAM on this machine and want to use Xubuntu 64.
