Ubuntu Installation :: Downloaded One Of The Alternative CDs And Installing It Both Ways?

Jan 11, 2011

I'm looking to run a dual boot on this laptop. I have Win7 currently installed, and I have my hard drive partitioned and ready to go for an Ubuntu install. I've downloaded the i386 CD from the website, burned it successfully. I rebooted with the disc in, and when I select install to hard drive, it shows a blinking cursor below the install screen and hangs there. I installed the ISO to a bootable USB drive and tried to install it that way, same thing. I even tried downloaded one of the alternative CDs and installing it both ways. Same problem. Ive installed Ubuntu on this laptop before and it's ran successfully. I believe it was 9.04.

Gateway ML3109
2GB of RAM
75GB HDD (65 for Win7, 10 for Ubuntu)
798MBs of Video RAM

I don't want to partition for Linux just yet, I'm still in the testing phase, but I started torrenting ISO files for Mint 9 KDE and Fedora and other Linux Distros but I forgot that I wasn't using my original 1TB of HDD, but only 30GB which is th maximum I could give it... How can I add more to it without partitioning?

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows Installer For 64-bit?

Jan 12, 2011

I have a Ubuntu 10.10 live cd for 32-bit. However it does not work with my system--I am guessing it has something to do with having more than 4 gigs of ram.

Anyway I am wondering if there is a way to install ubuntu 10.10 64-bit with Windows 7 64-bit.

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows 7 Installer Does Not Loading

Mar 21, 2010

I use to have vista and ubuntu on my PC. Yesterday accidentally I created a new partition "table" the point is that I erased all my partitions on "MyDisk". After a while I decided to re-install ubuntu ( 9.10 karmic koala ) and take advantage of the situation and upgrade to Windows7. Since I already had the ubuntu cd, I installed it first, then downloaded the Win7 cd to install it. The problem is that Windows7 installer doesn't load.

All I get is:
Grub loading.
Ubuntu logo
ubuntu login

So I don't know whats wrong. Right now my disk looks like this:
MyDisk >
MyDisk1 ntfs ( For windows 7 )
MyDisk2 > extended (using linux with 2 more partitions: ext4 and linux-swap)

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04 Installer Doesn't See Windows 7?

Oct 26, 2010

I've searched the forums, internet, etc... and I can't seem to find anything on this. I installed Windows 7 using ~70% of my available hard drive space, the other 30% is unallocated. there are two partitions, the 100MB 'System' partition and the NTFS one with Windows 7.

On my first attempt to install Ubuntu: The partitions didn't look right. It detected two NTFS partitions, the first one of 100MB, and a second NTFS partition using ~30% of my hard drive, and 70% (presumably Windows) as unallocated. I decided to go ahead and try to install it over the 30% NTFS partition thinking that maybe the installer just didn't recognize the free space right or something, but after that happened, Nothing loaded and my Windows partition was trashed.

I wiped the drive, and reinstalled Windows again with the 70/30 split. On my second attempt to install Ubuntu: On step 4 of the installation process (partitions) it doesn't detect my Windows 7 installation at all. Instead, it says the disk is 100% unallocated.

Does anyone know why the Ubuntu Installer is not detecting my Windows partition correctly? If so, how can I go about getting Ubuntu to see it and install itself along side Windows?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Installer Won't Detect Windows 7

Aug 11, 2011

I'm trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 alongside Windows 7, but when I boot from the CD, Ubuntu refuses to detect the presence of Windows 7. I tried unplugging all my external hard drives to see if that made a difference, but Ubuntu still can't tell that I have Windows 7 on there.

Ubuntu Installation :: Karmic Installer Doesn't See Windows 7 ?

Apr 6, 2010

I recently did a fresh install of Windows 7 on my laptop, then shrunk my partition and set aside some free space for Ubuntu. When I went to install Ubuntu, however, it told me that no operating systems had been detected on the system. I ignored this message and just installed Ubuntu on the free space, but when the installation was finished, GRUB failed to recognize Windows 7 as well and would only boot into Ubuntu.

After several attempts at getting GRUB to see W7, I eventually gave up and used my W7 CD to reinstall the Windows bootloader which, naturally, didn't detect Ubuntu and would only allow me to boot Windows.

I've tried messing around with my Windows partition a bit, but no matter what configuration I use, I can't seem to get the Karmic installer to see it. I've resorted to using WUBI for now, but I'd really like to have Ubuntu on its own partition in case something goes wrong with Windows; plus, I'd love to be able to use ext4 and GRUB. Anybody know how I can get around this issue?

I've used the same install CD on several other machines with Windows 7 and it recognized them just fine. It's only this one computer that's having the issue.

Fedora Installation :: Installer Bug / Crash On Windows 7?

Oct 7, 2009

I currently run windows 7, I am interested in dual booting, upon burning the .iso to the disc using imgburn, I had a few problems with the installer when I ran the live disc, I'll assume it was personal causes, I googled several things for a simple solution, I went with using the Disk Manager in Windows 7 to shrink my current partition which I only have one which is running Win 7 on 140 GB's, using the shrink function in windows I unallocated 20 GB of that partition, I used this option because the option in F11's installer would not work at all. I rebooted from disc, loading the distro, and run the installer via desktop choose the use free space option and I got an error crash when it tries to execute this option which isnt the only time I got this error bug causing me to exit the installer, I copied the debug information in the details, I hope this is something simple because F11 isn't worth this much time.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Doesn't Find Existing Windows XP

Jan 8, 2010

I'm trying to set up a dual boot of Ubuntu & Windows XP.I have two hard disks installed - sda is 80GB and has an existing Windows setup on it, sdb is my 160GB data storage disk.When I have installed Ubuntu on other machines, it has detected any exisiting OS's and offered to install Ubuntu alongside them.

However, this time Windows doesn't seem to be detected - it says 'no other operating systems found' and wants to install to my second (i.e. sdb) disk. I was intending for Ubuntu & Windows to sit side-by-side on the first hard disk.Although I've installed Ubuntu before, I'm a bit of a novice and I'm not sure how to achieve this - where am I going wrong?

Ubuntu Installation :: Creating USB Installer Hosed Windows Host?

Nov 5, 2010

My daughter tried to create a bootable USB-stick version of ubuntu by following the steps on this site, which included using the "universal USB installer" utility from pendrivelinux.com. She was on a windows notebook (I don't know which version, probably XP), and had saved the .iso to the desktop.She's generally pretty good about following directions, but now, with no CD or USB stick in place, the windows machine HD boots directly into the installer "Try ubuntu or Install ubuntu" screen, with no trace of windows! Naturally, her SO (it's his work machine) is more than a little upset.

Ubuntu Installation :: Opera 10.61 Windows Installer Doesn't Open

Dec 9, 2010

I downloaded wubi.exe from Opera 10.61. The file downloads ok, but then refuses to do anything when I click on the file.

I also switched to my IE version, and tried to run the file from there. Again, I get the hourglass symbol for a couple of seconds, then nothing.

I'm running Windows 98. I know, I should have a newer version, but finances can't manage that right now. In the meantime, is there a manual way to run the installer for wubi and get it to work?

Ubuntu Installation :: Windows Installer Launch Error Message

Feb 1, 2011

I want to download and install Ubuntu to run alongside Windows 7 in a dual boot configuration. and downloaded the Windows Installer, but when I try to launch it I get an error message which I captured and attached to this post. What's really wierd is that once the message is displayed, I can't get rid of it. Even running the Task Manager to try to close the message doesn't work. I literally have to restart the computer to get rid of the message!

Am I suppose to be downloading the Windows Installer (Wubi) to a CD first where I run it from there? If so, the instructions don't mention that. Can't I download it directly to my C: drive and then run it from there? If so, why am I getting the error message?

Ubuntu Installation :: Installer Does Not See Windows Installation?

May 3, 2010

I have three physical drives:

Drive 0: Used for paging file in windows and general temp file storage
Drive 1: Media storage
Drive 2: Windows installation

When booting off the Ubuntu 10.04 disc and running the installer, it gets up to the partition step and doesn't find my Windows installation (for the automatic partitioning and such) and lists Drive 0 as the drive it will install to. I really want it to see my Windows install and create a partition on that same drive. Can anyone help me in getting the installer to see the Windows installation?

Ubuntu Installation :: Can't See Drives - Alternate Installer Doesn't Detect Windows - No Boot?

Feb 16, 2011

I have a Windows XP system, and wanted to install Ubuntu to a 100 GB XT3 partition on the same drive. I was told I could chainload Ubuntu from the NT Loader menu. I booted from a Ubuntu 10.04 CD and ran the installer. It didn't find any hard drives. On a hunch, I tried the 10.04 alternate installer CD. That DID find the hard drive and partitions. I had the installer make /dev/sda7 (the XT3 partition) the root. Installation proceeded smoothly, but then the installer told me it did not see any other OS's on my drive! Why? I directed the installer to place grub on /dev/sda7 instead of the MBR.

Per the instructions I was given, I used DD to copy the first 512 bytes of /dev/sda7 to the Windows primary partition (sda1) as bootloader.lnx. But the resulting file is empty, and it won't boot. I repeated the whole process - formatting, installing FOUR times, and same results. I have no idea where GRUB was installed. It is apparently not in the MBR, because I still have my normal Windows boot. I downloaded the 10.10 alternate installer and got the same exact results. Even switched from XT3 to XT4. After two weeks of this nonsense, I still have yet to see Linux boot.

Ubuntu Installation :: In Windows 7 (64 Bits) File System Installer - Cannot Detect Wireless Network

Nov 28, 2010

Ubuntu in Windows 7 (64 bits) File system installed using Wubi I got Ubuntu 10.04 LTS intalled using Wubi. That means Ubuntu resides inside Windows file / folder system. It also means Ubuntu does not have its own partition. Here is what I found out:

1) It cannot detect wireless network unlike Win 7 on this same laptop. However, when I plug in ethernet cable, it was able to detect it. Is there a fix this problem?

2) I cannot see Windows folders. How do access windows folder from Ubuntu side and vice versa?

3) I forgot to set the disk space for Ubuntu during install and I think the default is 17 GB.Would this cause me problems? If so, what do I need to do? How do I expand the disk space for Ubuntu?

Ubuntu Installation :: Uninstalling Ubuntu From Windows Installer?

Sep 23, 2010

I installed Ubuntu via the windows installer (side by side, not partitioned) the other day. I installed it 2 or 3 times, I forget why. So I ran Wubi.exe, it asked me if i wanted to uninstall it. I said yes so in a split second it apparently uninstalled it. My hard drive space remained the same so clearly nothing was done. Ubuntu cannot be found in my program and features control panel.

SUSE :: Get The Option To Choose Windows Or The Installer At The Windows Boot Screen

Sep 16, 2010

I'm new to linux, and I'm just trying to learn OpenSUSE. I just installed it and I have a few quick questions. #1 I accidentally installed the "OpenSUSE Installer (LOCAL)" on Windows 7, so now I get the option to choose windows or the installer at the windows boot screen. I ended up just installing OpenSUSE on a completely different HD (my original intent) from a burned DVD, so this installer is useless and I don't know how to remove it.

#2 After installing opensuse on my second HD, the boot screen is now SUSE's instead of Windows, and I can choose suse's desktop, the suse failsafe, windows 1, and windows 2. Windows 1 brings me to the windows boot screen with the choice i mentioned above (windows or the local installer i accidentally installed), and windows 2 i assume is my second windows partition which is just my SWAP file, and selecting it does nothing (which would make sense if thats all it is).

My question here is how do I make it so my default boot screen is the windows one with an option between windows 7 or suse? Or would this require reinstalling the system? If it does and its simple enough to explain please do I wouldnt mind removing it and reinstalling at this point, I would just wipe my whole second HD from windows.

#3 I have a netgear adapter. unfortunitly i'm not at home right now and I don't remember the model, so I'll provide that this evening if necessary. What I do know is they do not have a driver for linux. I've found ACX100, but I didn't find my netgear adapter listed on their website. I also found NDISWrapper, but thats for XP and I still don't know if that'll work. I will of course try both unless someone here has a better solution. If anyone knows anything that will work on any netgear adapter for linux please let me know, if not then I'll provide the model later on.

Ubuntu Installation :: Difference Between The Ubuntu Installer For Windows And The Ubuntu CD Image?

Jan 2, 2010

What is the difference between the Ubuntu Installer for windows and the Ubuntu CD image? If I use the ubuntu installer for windows, does it have the capability to partition my drive, will it enable to share files with windows etc or is it just a way not to have to burn a CD. Just curious, the exact details of the installation files were not made clear on the website. Note: Windows Version: XP, 32bit, SP3. I have not partitioned anything yet.

Ubuntu :: Downloaded On Windows And Watch Them On The Partition?

Aug 1, 2010

I've always wanted to give Linux a go, so I decided to try out Ubuntu, but before I can I need to ask some questions. 1. When doing partitions to run something like Windows 7 and Ubuntu ((I'm going to be using Ubuntu when I'm not playing games.)) can I choose to only give it afew gigs of hard drive space, well, probably like 20-50?

2. Is there a way to take music/videos I've downloaded on Windows and watch them on the Ubuntu Partition? If so, how?

3. Using Wubi is the 'Installation size' option how much space you're giving to the Ubuntu partition or will I need to download/burn the .iso file to a cd/dvd to do that?

Ubuntu :: XP Cd Boots But Gets A Blue Screen Afterwards Downloaded A Windows 7?

Jan 25, 2011

I deinstalled Ubuntu today. Just deleted the partitions etc and thought it would be fine, but now this weird grub thing is telling me:

error: no such partition

grub rescue>

I am at the end of my wits: I downloaded a liveCD, which will not boot. My XP cd boots but gets a blue screen afterwards I downloaded a windows 7 live cd which did not help either

Problem is, I can't load my bios anymore to change the boot order... Didn't even know Grub was part of linux...

Point is, I got a presentation tomorrow and all my important files are on that laptop. . . the setroot=(hd0,0) gives no response. I tried a bunch of other commands but I keep getting unknown command...
