Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi Fails To Launch On Win 7 Ultimate?

Nov 7, 2010

I have downloaded wubi.exe to my hard drive. After double clicking the exe and OKing the security dialog, I get a error message box titled: "pyrun.exe - No Disk"The error message reads:"There is no disk in the drive.Please insert a disk into the drive DeviceHarddisk3DR5.There are three buttons: Cancel, Try Again, ContinueClicking any of these buttons simply causes the same message box to pop up over and over.

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 :: Wubi Install Of Xubuntu Fails / Encountered This Bug?

Jun 23, 2011

I have tried twice to use Wubi to install Xubuntu on a Windows XP machine. Each time the results were the same:

1) Downloads the required stuff.
2) Does some post-download stuff.
3) Says it needs to reboot to finish the installation.
-------------- here is where it goes bad -------------
4) Reboots back into Windows. There is nothing set to choose Xubuntu (no error messages displayed in prior steps).

Has anyone else encountered this bug?

Ubuntu Installation :: Wubi Installation With 10.04 Fails ?

May 10, 2010

I am trying to install 10.04 with wubi and I encounter a strange error:

At first, everything runs normally. Then I am asked to reboot the system.

After rebooting, Ubuntu starts with a GUI (desktop background, my USB-Mouse is working) and a Window appears ("completing installation" and some advertisement).

A dialog tells me, that the systems tries to set the time (probably from an NTP Server). This is shown with a completion bar, starting at 571% and going up to 800% in several steps. Then it says: "Installation des Grundsystems".

Next steps: creating ext4 file system, copying files ... Again, a progression bar appears, going up to 28%.

Then, an error message appears: "Datei entspricht nicht ihrer Quelle auf der CD/DVD" (file does not match the source on CD/DVD).

It gives me a filename(e.g. /target/usr/lib/smbcquotas) and the choice to Abort/Retry/Skip. I click on "Retry" ("Skip" has exactly the same effekt).

The progress bar goes up to 38%, and I can hear that files are copied. Then the system hangs, showing the desktop wallpaper, mouse functioning. I can only turn it off.

I can try this procedure several times. I even used different disks (one brand new). It always comes to the same end. The only thing that changes are the file names ut gives me. I think that the error message is misleading. Probably there is another error behind the scenes.

Ubuntu :: 9.10 Fails To Launch?

Feb 27, 2010

I installed it yesterday. It worked well. I was able to log into windows without any trouble and restart into Ubuntu without a hitch.

This morning I launched Ubuntu as usual vi GRUB. I was asked to install about 135 upgrade files, which went withou an apparent challenges. I then went through the restart and noticed that there was an extra two choices in GRUB, but I just left it to launch Ubuntu automatically. Which it did.

I then messed about with the appearance settings. Noticed a some more updates were waiting which included 49 files. I went through the updating process and restart.
GRUB worked well, and I was soon loggin in with username and password.

The Ubuntu Screen became visible with the flashing horizontal line and about 3 seconds later everything froze. I waited for several minutes - I timed them - but still no progress - everything remained frozen.

I switched off the machine completely, as I knew of no other way to get out of this situation. I rebooted and when GrUB launched I booted into windows 7 with absolutely no problems.

I used restart in windows and then allowed GRUB to boot into Ubuntu. Once more I was able to log in but soon after the Ubuntu Screen appeared and the horizontal line flashed for a few seconds, everything froze. This time I waited five minutes before switching off the machine by disconnecting at the mains.

I am now using windwos 7 to make contact

Ubuntu :: Wubi Fails To Uninstall

Mar 19, 2010

Going into my 5th day on trying to get linux to work on my system. I first tried a backtrack DVD but it failed to install after a kernel panic. I tried using ubuntu 9 and 8 but they both freezed at the livecd menu in bios and gave an i/o error.

So I tried using WUBI but after choosing "UBUNTU" in the windows boot manager after the bios, it fails to load. So i try to uninstall Wubi, and i get this:

this is my logfile ( warning: .txt 500kb ) [URL]

I'm guessing there is something very wrong with my pc, due to the i/o errors with both the ubuntu cd's and BT4.

Windows 7 x64

Ubuntu :: Wubi Fails On Reboot

Aug 22, 2010

When I try to use Wubi to install Ubuntu it fails on reboot. It seems to run a script on reboot then nothing. I get a command prompt window with the script and the laptop seems to lock up. Only a hard re-boot will restart the system. I do get a dual screen boot prompt Windows/Umbutu but if I choose Umbutu, I get the same command prompt screen and the system is locked up again. Chosing Windows at the boot screen works fine.

Ubuntu :: Wubi Install Fails On Vista?

May 15, 2010

Argh all that downloading for nothing, it fails when it is around 98% finished with install! Giving a permission denied error, yet that makes no sense because I am running as Administrator account in Windows Vista Home Premium (64-bit on amd64).

BTW I followed the recommended fix on the WubiGuide and it doesn't work.

It says to copy the ISO file (ubuntu-10.04-desktop-amd64.iso) into the same directory as the wubi.exe installer file. I did that and it still goes through the whole long process of downloading the ISO file and gives the same error at the end


Here is the relevant tail of the log file.

Ubuntu :: (11.04) Radeon 5700 Series : Catalyst Fails To Launch?

Apr 30, 2011

I really don't know what's going on here. I had Ubuntu 10.10 working great, and noticed 11.04 came out. I had been waiting a while and, for some reason, I decided to start with a fresh install rather than an upgrade.So basically here's what I've done so far:

- Installed Ubuntu 11.04 amd64
- Installed Opera, and XSensors
(sensors-detect only detected my GPU and CPU, not mainboard this time. But I can live with that.)
- Activated the FGLRX driver, rebooted.
- Tried to launch Catalyst Control Center, received this error message:
[Initialization error]

There was a problem initializing CCC Linux edition. It could be caused by the following.No ATI graphics driver is installed, or the ATI driver is not functioning properly. Please install the ATI driver apropriate for you ATI hardware, or configure using aticonfig.

Ubuntu :: Guest Session At Login Screen - Fails To Launch GDM

Aug 2, 2011

Basically, the problem is, we have a bunch of computers in a computer lab, that we want to students to access, but not modify in ANY way. That includes backgrounds or whatnot. And after restart, any changes they may have made, change back. Also, they can't have read access to the administrator account on the computer.

This needs to give a permission denied, or something:
cd /home/(admin account username)

The Guest Session is exactly what we are looking for, but try as I might, I can't get it to work. Because, we don't want to have to login as administrators, then activate guest session, just for our students to use the computers. The idea being, we can leave the computers in there, and not worry about the students breaking anything.

One thread I tried was: [URL]. However, using his method, will log the student into the account, and after about 5 seconds, log them back out.
The other method listed lower in the thread,
Seems to work, but upon logging out, fails to launch the gdm

Only way to restore is restarting the computer.

OpenSUSE Install :: BIOS Message - Fails To Launch From CD

May 16, 2011

Recently, for whatever reason (I am led to suspect a bad hard drive), Windows 7 failed to boot even in safe mode so I decided to just use a clear hard drive and install a far less troublesome OS, so I decided to try to use openSUSE. I used a backup laptop to download and burn the 4.7 GB release. Problem is, I haven't a clue how to get it to work. I thought just placing the burned DVD in when booting would be enough, but the BIOS keeps telling me it fails to launch from CD. Luckily, I had enough foresight to download a live CD just in case. I was able to install from the live CD, and when I checked the DVD, I was able to access all the content.

But I haven't a clue how to use it to upgrade/install all the extra software. Also, I should add I am completely new to this whole thing. While I have used Linux before, for the most part others dealt with all the administrative aspects of ensuring the system actually ran/had the needed software on it. Finally, I have one major restriction placed on this whole issue. I live out in the middle of no-where and the only internet I can get is limited to 200MB a day (I downloaded the CD/DVD elsewhere, but normally don't have a chance to do that). As such, being able to install from the DVD and not needing to download much software would be nice.

Slackware :: Default Xfce Terminal Launch Fails With Error

Feb 24, 2011

Fresh guest install of current as of changelog dated 16-Feb-2011, in to VirtualBox 4.0.4 (13.1 x86_64 host).

1. About 6 of the icons normally residing in the top half of Settings Manager are missing (names are their and functions work). Selecting 'Appearance -> Icons' and re-selecting the one choice available restores one, the rest remain MIA.

2. Default xfce Terminal launch fails with error <????> Re-selecting the default 'Preferred Applications -> Utilities -> Terminal -> Xfce Terminal' has no effect. 'Properties' shows the usual 'exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator'.

Setting 'Preferred Applications' to 'X Terminal' launches an xterm successfully as expected.

I'm having trouble dual booting Windows 7 Ultimate and Fedora 14. I am using Grub 0.97 (The grub before Grub 2).

Ubuntu Installation :: Dual Boot - Vista Ultimate / 10.4 - Can't Boot Windows

May 7, 2010

I have just installed Ubuntu 10.4 x64 onto a machine with Vista Ultimate x64. When I boot the machine, the Windows option comes up in the GRUB menu. However, when I attempt to boot Windows, I receive the following error: No such device: de80ab9f80ab7d21. error: No such partition. Press any key to continue...

I looked around and found a similar issue at [URL] However, before trying to fix the issue by guesswork or via solutions that worked for a similar, though not necessarily identical problem. I've run the boot info script (see output below) mentioned several places on this site as a valuable input for boot problem tracking. how to get Windows to boot on my computer?

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 - Wubi Installation (Dell1520 / Nvidia) - Unreadable Screen

Apr 29, 2011

i just tried to install Ubuntu 11.04 (x86) on my Dell Inspiron 1520 Laptop (with a Nvidia 8600M GT graphics card) with Wubi. A normal installation try resulted in an unreadable screen after boot (see attachment). I then managed to get the installation going by modifiing the boot options like shown in this HowTo: [URL] After the installation Wubi automatically rebooted the system without any prompt, so that i couldn't install the proper Nvidia drivers (is there a way to prevent wubi from doing that?) like described in the HowTo. After the reboot the graphics were messed up again.

Boot parameters like "text" "single" or vga=xxx didn't work, adding nomodest and nouveau.modset again didn't help either (I think "text" acutally brings up the console, but i just see an unreadable "blacker" screen than normal). Is there an boot option for grub to disable all nvidia related drivers and the graphical login manager and just show a text based console? Or force the gfx driver to be the same as in the installation process (which was perfect...native resolution, no graphical errors until the reboot) (i tried xforcevesa without any luck; nosplash and removing quiet/splash does work - the bootup process is readable, but as soon as the login manager starts its messed up again)
