Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Wubi Upgrade Failed / Freezes At Battery Check?

May 6, 2010

I have a Wubi installation, and the upgrade to 10.04 froze. I didn't note down the point at which it froze.

When I tried to reboot, I got the grub screen, and when selecting Ubuntu I get lots of text messages scrolling by, but it freezes at battery check.

The machine boots fine into Vista.

Rather than spend a lot of time trying to figure out what went wrong in the upgrade, my inclination is to delete the Wubi installation from within Windows, and then do a fresh install of 10.04 under Wubi. Is this feasible/sensible?

There are a handful of files I would like to salvage from the prior installation, however. Could I do that with a Live CD since the prior installation was under Wubi?

I just updated my ubuntu 10.10 installation inside windows (wubi) and after that I shut down my computer. Later on I switched it on again and was unable to boot ubuntu. Ususally I first get the 'Windows boot menu' and after i select ubuntu i get the grub menu. Now, when I select ubuntu in the windows boot menu I dont get grub after that but instead the computer restarts. Is there any way to fix this issue without reinstalling ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi Boot Failure After Kernel Upgrade

Nov 27, 2010

I've been running Ubuntu 10.04 AMD64 on our home theater PC through a wubi installation. Yesterday the system update installed a new kernel and today there is a problem booting the computer so I'm reluctantly using Windoze to type this. there isn't much information: the computer has always booted fine before the kernel update. When I select Ubuntu in the boot menu the screen goes black and the computer restarts. No error messages, no GRUB menu, just a blank screen before restart.

Computer: Dell Hybrid 140G, Intel Core 2 Duo T5800, 4GB RAM

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic (wubi Install) Won't Boot After Dist-upgrade?

Jan 11, 2010

i have Karmic installed with Wubi inside a Vista NTFS filesystem. Yesterday i did an apt-get dist-upgrade and Karmic never booted again. It won't even show the grub kernel list, it just shows some really quick text that vanishes before i can even figure out what it is and then drops to some sort of grub shell and then i can't figure out what to do.

I could boot a livecd and mount my karmic install and everything seems fine, the filesystem is clean and all that. But how do i fix it so it can boot again?

Does anyone here know wtf happened? Was there a bad upgrade or something?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Upgrade Failed & Won't Boot?

Apr 29, 2011

Got a Netbook. No CD drive so mounted image to USB stick and booted into installer from there. Chose the option to upgrade from 10.04 LTS to 11.04 and the installer hung on removing conflicting operating system files. In the end, I was forced to restart as nothing else could be done. Now, it just boots to this:

Quote: error: no argument specified.
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or directory
Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init.
No init found. Try passing init= bootarg.

BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash)Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

I booted to the Live CD and reinstalled Grub which now brings up a list of all the kernels and Memtest but, aside from Memtest, they still all boot to this. I don't have the passphrase for the Home folder (don't even remember encrupting it!) so I tried the ecryptfs method from the live CD to get the passphrase and backup the Home folder and do a new install but there is no trace of .ecryptfs or .Private folder and pretty much everything in the Home folder is locked. Tried an fsck on the hard drive, but nothing. I do remember thinking the hard drive was referred to as hda1, but the live CD shows it as sda1. Don't know if this affects anything. I have a feeling the installer regarded the USB stick as first hard drive and got confused.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wont Boot After Failed Upgrade?

Apr 16, 2011

I was running 10.10 and I started to upgrade to 11.04 beta2. And while it was in the middle of applying the updates it shutdown on its own. When I went to boot it back up it originally told me something about the drive is unavailable and asked if i wanted to do an automatic or manual recovery. Neither of those worked so created a live cd of 10.10 and it will boot to that with no problem. I did some research and thought that it may be the grub bootloader so i upgraded that to version 1.98 and now all it does is go to a black screen with the prompt "grub>". So my question is what do i do? I would reinstall 10.10 but I cannot loose any of the data that is on the disk.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade To 9.10 Failed; Can't Boot And Have Encrypted RAID Disk?

Feb 23, 2010

I was running Ubuntu 9.04 Desktop on a headless Pentium 4 machine which is our file, mail, web & fax server. The two x 250GB SATA hard disks were in a RAID 1 array with full disk encryption. Ran the 9.10 upgrade via WEBMIN and it failed. I should have known then to copy over everything to a backup disk, but instead I rebooted.

On restart the machine accepted my encryption passphrase but promptly hung with a mountall symbol lookup error - code 127. So I can't start the machine to get at the disks, and using a Live CD is useless as it has no way to open the RAID array to get at the encrypted partitions. Although we have data backed up (as at last night) I'd hoped not to have to rebuild the entire server from scratch. But its looking bad.I have taken one drive out and plugged it into another machine (Hercules), and the partitions show up as /dev/sdb1 /dev/sdb2 /dev/sdb3.

If it weren't for RAID, I could open /dev/sdb2 the main partition) in Disk Utility and enter my encryption passphrase to get access. But RAID adds a layer of obstruction that I have not yet overcome. I used mdadm to scan the above partitions and created the /etc/mdadm.conf file, which I edited to show the 2nd drive as missing (rather than risk corrupting both drives). I activated the RAID array with mdadm, and cat shows:

root@HERCULES# cat /proc/mdstat
Personalities : [raid1]
md1 : active raid1 sdb3[0]
1815232 blocks [2/1] [U_]


I've been searching the web for hours but have yet to find someone with a solution to this situation. If anyone has a thought on how to access this disk I'd be pleased to hear from you. In the meantime I will start building a new (9.10) machine from scratch, without RAID, 'cos that's probably going to be necessary.

Debian Installation :: Failed Wheezy To Jessie Upgrade (cannot Boot)

Aug 13, 2014

I upgraded from deb7 to deb8, but am no longer able to boot. After passing the grub boot menu, the following messages are displayed:

Select allLoading, please wait...
[    6.065713] systemd-fsck[148]: /dev/sda1: clean, 428644/1310720 files, 410616

[   18.066215] Loading kernel module for a network device with CAP_SYS_MODULE (deprecated). Use CAP_NET_ADMIN and alias netdev- instead

The screen then clears and an underscore is displayed as the sole character at the top left position of the screen. The system hangs at this point. During installation, I rejected two changed files: /etc/init.d/bootlogd and /etc/libreoffice/sofficerc. For both, I opted to keep the installed version (the default choice of the installer) rather than replacing with the new version. The first might be related to the problem, although it seems to be responsible only for logging the boot process, and I would not expect this to compromise booting.

In case this information is useful, sda1 is mounted at /, sda2 is swap space, sda3 is extended, and sda5 is a logical partition mounted at /home.

I am able to boot into rescue mode, but other than that the system is not usable. Unfortunately, no useful error messages are given to aid in diagnosing the problem.

Fedora Installation :: Upgrade To FC13 - Initial Boot Failed - Just Blank Screen

Sep 19, 2010

I have just upgraded my FC12 installation to FC13. The initial boot failed (just blank screen). Second time I received 'selinux targeted policy relabel is required'. I let that run, but still the boot did not suceed.

I then went in to verbose boot and saw that the boot would hang at libvirtd. So I disabled libvirtd for anything above run level 1. Next boot failed at atd, disabled atd. Next boot failed at 'monthly Smolt checkin'.

At that point and booted in to single user mode and dissabled SELinux, thinking that was the cause of all the problems. That did not help.

The update process has also removed my previous kernels, so I can't test a different kernel

Ubuntu Installation :: Fails To Load After Upgrade From 10.04 To 10.10 On Wubi?

Dec 22, 2010

I had a 10.04 Wubi install on my Win7 notebook. I selected the option to upgrade to 10.10 from update manager. It downloaded all the updates, but reported that due to some problem, only a partial upgrade will be possible. I agreed. And now, when I select Ubuntu from the startup OS list, it just shows a blank screen and restarts within 3-5 seconds. What do I do??

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Wubi To Real Partition?

May 25, 2011

I've been using Ubuntu NR 10.04 LTS for almost 1 years now with dual-boot with Windows XP by Wubi and I had great time using it. Now I want to experience the full potential of Ubuntu by creating another partition just for Ubuntu alone since I heard Wubi makes a lot of trouble and works slower than independent Ubuntu install.

Here's my question. Should I really create another partition to get full potential of Ubuntu or should I stick with wubi? I haven't got any problem running Ubuntu with Wubi but my video playback sometimes gone haywire which didn't happen in windows especially .mkv files

If I should create a partition, how do I want to shrink Drive C: to get enough free space for another partition? Mine was Windows XP so it doesn't have shrink option in Disk Managament unlike Vista/7.

And last question... Can Ubuntu run Window games or MMORPG smoothly like Counter Strike and WarcraftIII? I did try to play it before but it run too slower in Ubuntu. I used Netbook Eee PC 900HA, 2GB RAM, dual-boot Windows XP Home Edition with Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.04 Lucid Lnyx LTS.

Ubuntu Installation :: Grub Broke After Wubi Upgrade / Sort It?

Aug 18, 2010

I beleive I had version 9.x installed. I upgraded once and everything was fine. I went the upgrade manager again and it found some more upgrades. The upgrade messed with grub. It then told me there were no new upgrades. Then I rebooted and it says

Try (hd0,0): NTFS5

Then the screen clears and there is some text I can't read and then it says command not found. Then it reboots.

Is there a way to fix this?
If not is there a way to recover the files from the disk image file.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Lucid From Wubi Install To Real Partition?

Jun 4, 2010

I have been using Lucid Lynx for almost 2 weeks and have got everything working, thanks to the "ubuntu" spirit in this forum. Now I am ready to upgrade my Wubi install to its separate partition. I have searched the forum and googled to find a way to do this, but I am still stuck.

I used lvpm (despite knowing that there is no confirmation of its working on Lucid Lynx), it didn't work. The installation happened alright but it wasn't able to show up the login screen (GDM?). It was stuck around the screen before that (Xsplash?).

There is this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=438591 that explains this process very well but remains silent on Lucid Lynx version.

I am sure there must be many other first timers who wanted to get their feet wet the easy way using wubi and would like to make it "permament" OS on their computers.

Is there anyone who can suggest if :

1. There is any way I can still use lvpm to transfer wubi install to separate installation (Ubuntu 10.04 release) ?

2. Any other way I can do this ??

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Boot With CD Or Wubi

Sep 1, 2010

I have recently discovered ubuntu and like it's elegance and simplicity and want to learn more about it "hands on". To this end I have tried to put it on one of my PC's running the Vista SP2 OS...When i try to install it with the CD the drive spins up then starts "hunting"..next the PC shuts down..black screen monitor.no KB or Mouse..the monitor flashes a box saying "power saving mode" then all is dead except for the power button being lit..I have to manually turn the PC off to recover...Next i did a D/L of wubi and rebooted as advised.Selected ubuntu on the BIOS and had the same final result as B4 with the CD. I have D/L and burned 2 CD's, one with my XP machine and the other with the Vista machine..Both CD's work as advertised on my XP machine (i did the "live" install) but not the Vista. The Vista machine is an HP with: AMD Athlon 64x2 3800+ CPU..3 GB of RAM..250 GB HDD. I do not like Vista ( i inherited the machine) it's a pain in the posterior. IMHO ubuntu and it's ilk are the way to go and i intend to do just that one way or the other.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi Boot Menu Won't Appear

Jan 7, 2010

I installed Xubuntu 9.10 with Wubi and it worked fine until a recent kernel update broke my install. I uninstalled through Windows and reinstalled Xubuntu 9.10 with Wubi with no apparent problems.When I look in C:ubuntudisks, root.disk, swap.disk, and the boot folder are both present. The C:ubuntudisksootgrub folder is empty; I don't know whether or not it should be that way.But when my computer starts, it just boots Windows Vista without displaying the menu asking me to select my OS.

Ubuntu :: Boot To Live Cd After Full And Wubi Installation?

Jun 29, 2010

I'm running Windows and 9.04 in a dedicated partition on my HP DV1000 (32bit), and I would like to boot to a 10.04 Live CD to make sure that everything will work with the upgrade. But, no matter what I try (unetbootin USB, Linux Mint, CDs of both) I can't get the machine to boot to anything other than the HD.

I did a wubi installation of 10.04 on a Compaq CQ laptop and ran into the same problem. I went into the BIOS on both machines and I think I tried all the different settings, but no go. I must be missing something. Is working through the BIOS the only way to get one's machine to boot from a usb or optical drive, or is there another trick to it?

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04.1 Wubi - For Boot Option Press Esc Now

Jan 26, 2011

I gave up on XP - not the place for long sob stories - and decided to try Ubuntu. I know nothing, so I chose the 10.04.1 because it said stable... made a CD, took it to the problem computer, tried several times to load, then noticed that "Wubi" loaded from windows. I hunted down a 10.04.1 Wubi, and it seemed to read rather well. No error messages, told me to remove the disc. I did, told me to reboot. I chose ubuntu and it froze with the words :

Completing the Ubuntu installation:
For more installation boot options, pres 'Esc' now...
I waited, nothing. I put the CD in, nothing. Now what?
