Ubuntu Installation :: USB Stick Install "Cannot Mount CD-ROM"?

Jun 15, 2010

I'm doing a USB stick install and when going through the installer, after selecting keyboard origin it tried to mount the CD-ROM drive instead of the USB port. I dont have any blank CDs so a live CD isnt an option. It's booting from the USB to get to the installer, just seems like the installer doesnt realize it needs to do the same.

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Install 11.04 From USB Stick

Jun 10, 2011

I am trying to clean install from a USB stick onto an Acer Aspire One ZG5.

Here are the steps I have followed:
- Downloaded ubuntu-11.04-desktop-i386.iso from [url]
- Downloaded Universal-USB-Installer- from [url]and run it
- Selected 11.04 in USB Installer, pointed to ISO, left persistence at 0MB and run it on a freshly FAT32 formatted USB stick

When the Aspire One boots from the USB stick, it displays "SYSLINUX 4.04 EDD 2011-04-18 Copyright (C) 1994-2011 H. Peter Anvin et al", followed by a flashing cursor on the next line.

1) I cannot type anything (read on some forums that typing "help" should work, but I cannot)
2) MD5 check of ISO is correct
3) I have also tried using unetbootin-win-549.exe to create the bootable stick, but the result is the same (although slightly older version of SYSLINUX)

Ubuntu Installation :: Using An Usb Stick To Install?

Jun 13, 2011

I've got a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop (4 years old, I think.) Running Windows xp 32 bit. I'm trying to dual boot it with ubuntu. I've installed ubuntu on a couple of other computer just fine. This laptop though, has decided it hates linux and I can't get ubuntu to install. I get to the first screen and can boot into ubuntu as a live cd just fine but if I try to install it the screen goes black, a ton of text appears, and then nothing else will happen.

So I tried using a usb stick to install. Same issue. Then I tried downloading mint and could not get past the first screen either. I tried debian, and my computer didn't even boot into the installer, it just booted into Windows..

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't Boot And Install From USB Stick / Why Is So?

Jan 10, 2010

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 from USB stick. I used System>Admin>USB Start up Disk Creator and a 9.10 .ISO version to create the bootable USB stick.

When I plug my USB key into my computer, my computer doesn't boot from it. I tried on several other computers and none of them boot from my USB key. The bios settings on all my computers boot from removable media first.

I repeated the above steps with a different USB key and I still can't boot from the USB key. When I browse the USB key directories, I can see all the necessary files to install ubuntu.

Last year, I didn't have trouble installing ubuntu 9.04 from USB key. Not sure what I'm doing wrong this time.

Can anyone tell me how to trouble shoot this problem?

May 1, 2011

Having a problem in installing Natty onto my ASUS EEEPC. Ive already changed the boot menu to install from USB, however, it will not mount the USB in order for it to boot.

I know the USB stick works and is bootable as ive installed Natty onto a Acer aspire netbook using it. how i could get the USB to mount so i am able to install Natty.

Ubuntu Installation :: How To Install 11.04 Server Via USB Stick

May 5, 2011

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 x64 Server onto a Shuttle XS35GT. The PC has no CD-ROM drive so I have to install via USB.

1. Copy the files to a USB-stick via UNetbootin (WinXP, OSX) or Universal-USB-Installer.exe (WinXP)
2. Boot to the USB-stick in order to install Ubuntu
3. The installer halts at "[!!] Detect and mount CD-ROM" - "Your installation CD-ROM couldn't be mounted. Try again to mount the CD-ROM? (Yes/No)"
4. Selecting either option does not help further the install

What I tried:
- Manually fix truncated filenames in /pool/l/linux/*.udeb (see [URL])
- Alt+F2, mount the .iso as a virtual CD-ROM under /media/iso (no use since the 11.04 installer does not allow manual chosing of the CD-ROM) (see [URL])
- Expert mode install (does not show anything special) (as suggested at [URL])

I had this exact same problem with 10.10 but someone was able to lend me a USB-CD-Drive that time.

Jul 24, 2009

I have a 32 GB USB stick which I would like to install the full Fedora 11 system to (i.e. the DVD). Is this possible? If yes, how? It seems like the only way to do this is by using the Live CD (which does not contain the software I need).

Fedora Installation :: Can't Install 13 On An 8 GB Memory Stick

Jun 30, 2010

I have tried to install F13 on an 8 GB USB memory stick (flash drive, thumb drive) but have had limited success. I used the Live USB Creator method as suggested in the Fedora web site and although I ended up with a bootable USB memory stick, I was unable to save any changes even though I allowed a 2GB persistent overlay.

I then tried to do it using Unetbootin and again got a bootable memory stick but again was unable to save any changes. Could someone explain what I might be doing wrong or is it just not possible to make a bootable memory stick with F12 that will save any changes?

Fedora Installation :: Cannot Install 14 On HP Proliant Microserver From USB Stick

Apr 18, 2011

I recently purchased HP Proliant Microserver with the idea of having it as a home server running Amahi. I added one 2TB hard disk to the already installed 250 GB drive. The Microserver has no cd/dvd drive so I created a bootable pen drive using LiveUSB Creator tool from Fedora 14 installation DVD iso image. However, I ran into problems in the very first phase though I struggled hard, juggling i386, x64, Live images...

Now, for i386 Fedora: The machine successfully boots from the pen drive but after selecting language and keyboard, the installer does not see the installation image - or even the pen drive at all - saying "No driver found". Then, I can only open "Select Device Driver to Load" (screenshot) where I can only see whole bunch of drivers I have no idea which of to select. I tried "USB mass storage driver for Linux", nothing happened, I'm returned back to "No driver found". Haven't found the "HP NC107i PCI-Express Gigabit Ethernet Server Adapter" driver in the list...

x64 Fedora: Same result, though x64 at least recognizes the HDDs that are already in the box (screenshot) so I can try to use image files unpacked on the second one (ext4 formatted). Then, the installation proceeds till the point of formatting the installation drive when it suddenly "Cannot find ISO 9660 image" (screenshot) and I cannot but Exit.

Live x64 image: I tried the Live bootable image from the same pen drive - it booted and installed correctly and at the first glance the system was working fine, connecting to the internet, downloading updates etc. However, this is not my option because I didn't have the option to add additional Repository during the installation from Live image (as it is in this guide, search the page for "Add the Amahi repository"). why the installation is not working in my setup?

OpenSUSE Install :: Installation From USB Stick With Custom Kernel

Feb 10, 2010

i need to install openSUSE 11.2 from an USB stick. I followed this article SuSE install from USB drive - openSUSE using the openSUSE-11.2-NET-i586.iso. Unfortunately the kernel provided in this image doesn't load on my target as it needs a few extra modules for its chipset.

Thus i copied our custom kernel (which is verified to run on the target) and its initrd to the usb stick and i also created a new entry in the syslinux.config. The kernel loads, but then it can't find the root device.Does anybody know, how i need to configure the initrd to make the USB stick the root device?

Ubuntu :: Change Mount Directory Of Usb Stick?

Jun 12, 2010

My usb stick continually automounts at /dev/sda10, and for a certain operation I'm trying to do I need it to be mounted at /dev/sda (or sdb, sdv, etc); is there any way to change it's mount directory?

As a bonus question, or rather the real question, what I'm really trying to do is format a bootstrap partition as shown here

Command (? for help): p
# type name length base ( size ) system
/dev/sda101 Apple_partition_map Apple 63 @ 1 ( 31.5k) Partition map

General :: Cannot Mount USB Stick

Sep 9, 2010

i am running Ubuntu 9.10. sometimes my USB device is auto detected and shows up on my desktop other time it is not detected?? anyway i am trying to figure how to Mount it. read about the ETC/FSTAB file and i may need an entry there. following is a copy

# /etc/fstab: static file system information.
# Use 'blkid -o value -s UUID' to print the universally unique identifier
# for a device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name
# devices that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5).


i did try to update with an entry similar to the cdrom. my fstab is read only so no update. i have read other USB mount problems but not sure about any.

Debian :: Unable To Mount USB Stick

Jun 13, 2011

When I plug in my USB stick (with fat32 filesystem, labeled flash8p1) and then try to mount it from the Places menu, I get an error box that pops up: Unable to mount flash8p1 Error mounting: mount exited with exit code 1: helper failed with: mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1, missing codepage or helper program, or other error In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail  or so

I don't understand what the dmesg is telling me, but here it is for those who may understand:

$ dmesg|tail
[14076.617192] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
[14076.619599] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through
[14076.619620]  sdc: sdc1
[14076.623348] sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Assuming drive cache: write through


I just got my Gnome-flavored Squeeze running this morning, and I'm still working out the configuration. I have disabled automounting and autobrowsing of removable media, but anyway this problem was occuring when I had automounting enabled. I have the OS installed to a 4-GB microSDHC card plugged in to the front of the computer. The computer is a Toshiba Mini NB505.

edit: And now, I just plugged the flash8p1 into a different USB port, and it mounted from the places menu. I wonder, though, if this is related to the fact that I had first mounted it from the command line.

Debian Installation :: USB Stick Install Fails - Missing Operating System

Nov 18, 2014

I want to try Debian on my Asus Eee netbook and I'm trying to follow the instructions in URL... But just copying the ISO file to the USB drive then trying to boot from it doesn't seem to work. I just get "Missing operating system".

The Eee can use an external optical drive as well but that failed also. I'm sure I need to do more to prepare the USB drive or CD? Can I prepare the USB Drive or CD on my Windows system, and make it boot on the netbook (which has another Linux distro on it now)?
