Ubuntu Installation :: New ASUS Eee PC 1215T Netbook Has No Operating System?

Feb 22, 2011

i ordered an AsuS Eee PC 1215T netbook off of Newegg:[URL].. i was confused and surprised to discover it didn't have an operating system, only the Express Gate Cloud. it was advertised as running on windows 7, but it's not installed. i called the ASUS tech support not once, but TWICE and they didn't know diddly squat. would anyone be able to walk me through how to install linux on it? the express cloud is a very basis system. there isn't a "my computer" function so i don't know how i would go about installing anything on it. from what i understand this little netbook has great potential, i just don't know how to harness it.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Microphone Doesn't Work In Asus 1215t Netbook?

Jan 7, 2011

I just installed Maverick on an Asus Seashell 1215T netbook with an AMD/ATI chipset. The sound output is working fine (with the exception that I have to manually set output to either speakers or headphones rather than just plugging in headphones), but neither the internal microphone nor external microphones plugged in through the mic jack work. I do have the sound device set to the internal sound (rather than HDMI) and the volume level set appropriately. Apparently neither microphone is being recognized. Any ideas on what could be wrong?Here is the relevant section from lspci -v:

00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 841c
Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 64, IRQ 16

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Natty NarWhal Netbook Has Destroyed Asus 1215T's Sound

May 4, 2011

My sound worked fine for the first few days.. then I noticed the mic wasn't working in skype so I tried messing with it in sound preferences. Now my speakers explode with this horrible distorted noise(semi-recognizable as whatever I'm trying to play) and sometimes freezes when I try to play any sound. Reinstalling just the drivers to avoid a fresh install, according to the stickied thread at the top, did nothing. Attempting to place the settings back to their defaults also does not appease this bloodthirsty beast.

I've been on a rampage through every lead I've found on trying to fix this problem but nothings worked so far.. it seems the problem is that the onboard speakers (Internal Audio; Analog Surround 4.0 Output) hates it's life in an Ubuntu OS too much to continue living. Not sure if the RS880 Audio Device [Radeon HD 4200] output is with it either.

Also heres my.. file report thingy(alsa-info.sh): [URL]

Ubuntu Installation :: ASUS Netbook Heating Up When Using Netbook 10.04

Apr 30, 2010

I installed Ubuntu Netbook 10.04 and immediately noticed the keyboard of my eeepc 1000HE was abnormally warm. Since I dual boot XP I booted to XP and found the fan running faster to compensate for the previous heat. This did not happen on Ubuntu-the fan just was barely running. I had to place the side of the netbook in order to feel the fan running. I issued "sensors" in terminal and it showed 67 degrees C for the cpu temp. Is the latest Ubuntu such a resource hug that it heats up the CPU?

General :: Resolution Overclocking Using Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.04 On An Asus Eee 4G Netbook

Aug 30, 2010

Why i cant change from 800x480 to 1024x600, that this model of EEE pc doesnt support anything higher than 800x480 at the 10:1 ratio...

Firstly my question is, is it ACTUALLY possible to 'overclock' this type of netbook to run a higher res?

Im running ubtuntu netbook remix 10.04 and am new to linux (again, so sorry) so be nice, and ive tried getting my head around this 'sudo' stuff, and the xorg.conf file (which is nowhere to be found) and ive even tried a program calld astray but im pretty sure ive exhausted my patience as trying to self-teach . . .

And ive also tried to much around with xrandr or whatever that command was.. but i cant really get my head around it, and it kept telling me the resolution didnt exist ect...

Ubuntu Installation :: Is There Bug In Netbook Edition / Is Asus Eeepc Not Compatile?

Mar 1, 2011

I have, in vain, tried to run or install Ubuntu Netbook Edition on an Asus Eeepc 1001PX.I have downloaded ubuntu-10.10-netbook-i386.iso and checked its md5sum, set up the installation media to both an USB-stick and a SD memory card using Universal-USB-Installer- and the Ubuntu Startup Disk Creator.The Asus already has an Ubuntu 10.10 Desktop which was easily installed using the same procedure.

Ubuntu :: Operating System Lose Data During A Power Failure As Windows Operating System?

Jan 13, 2010

Will a Linux operating system lose data during a power failure as does a Windows operating system?

(If yes.) This has not come up before but I'm going to be doing some work I don't want to lose.

Could you either point me to a backup tutorial or give me the quick overview of preserving stuff with Ubuntu?

Networking :: ASUS Router Not Co-operating?

Jun 7, 2011

Installed ASUS WL-500gP V2. After a lot of trouble with periodical success getting a HP Deskjet F2420 working and then again not working through this router I thought I had bricked it altogether. Got it back by 30-30-30-method, but now I cannot get through to it, the IP address is not working, somehow. Need to find out if it is recognizing my printer and to see if the connection is protected or open. How the heck can the address all of a sudden not work when the router is working and my Windows (huh...) laptop is connecting OK??? Is there any way of finding out the right address, through the Windows laptop "run" I typed "cmd" and then in the DOS prompt "ipconfig/all" and got a new address =, but that did not do any good, either.

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 - Operating System Not Found

Apr 2, 2010

I am trying to install Ubuntu 9.10 on an old IBM T21 laptop. It starts very happily, and I am able to partition the disk & copy the files to the HDD. However, when it loads the desktop there is an icon for the CD drive (and install disk). Everything appears to be fine, but I don't see any confirmation of the installation being completed. The CD drive does not open when the button is pressed. When I restart the laptop, I get the message 'operating system not found'. Starting the machine using the CD works fine. The disk shows that the partitions have been created, and I am told that Ubuntu 9.10 is installed.

Ubuntu Installation :: Operating System Not Found?

Jun 2, 2010

I formatted my 2nd hard drive(IDE) inside of windows. So I had a clean 80 GIG HDD. I downloaded the wubi installer and allowed it to have 30 GIGs of the newly formatted hard drive. I restarted it and it just used my 250GIG SATA drive. I then restarted and pressed esc. to make it use the 80 GIG and it said operating system not found. I then deleted it and tried again. Same result. I then reformatted it marked it as active and installed Ubuntu again and it did boot the 80 but it said the NTLDR is missing.

Ubuntu Installation :: On No Operating System Computer From USB?

Sep 1, 2011

I have been trying to find an answer for the past 4 hours, and I am stressing out right now. I bought a IBM Thinkcentre Celeron 2.8ghz off ebay, and when I turn it on it had no operating system. It says: "1962: No operating system found. Press F1 to reboot." I press F1, and it just did they same thing. Came up with that message.

Then I searched on the net for some answers on how to install ubuntu onto a computer without an operating system, and they said to enter BIOS menu and boot the ubuntu from the USB. So I turned the comp back on, and I pressed every button on the Computer except F1, and it did nothing. I dont know how to get into the BIOS menu.

Ubuntu :: Asus Netbook: Which OS To Install?

Oct 29, 2010

I'm completely new to Ubuntu and Linux. Previously, my only experience is that I've successfully installed Ubuntu on a computer that I was giving away to a friend of mine. So now I've got a refurb netbook coming in the mail in a day or two. It comes with Windows 7 Starter, which I'm assuming is complete crud.*

So assuming it's a good idea to replace that with Ubuntu, my question is, which one? I see that there is now a pretty prominent download link for something called Ubuntu Netbook. But I also see that there's something called Ubuntu Moblin Remix, and I've seen people on the Web referring to just "Ubuntu Remix."

Which one do I want to install? Are there features in regular Ubuntu that I'll miss because they're not in these alternate netbook versions? Since I'm a complete noob when it comes to Linux, I will want to be learning as much as I can. Hopefully using one of these low calorie versions of Ubuntu would not hamper my learning process?

I suppose I should tell you what I'm using the computer for: What I plan to do with my netbook is mainly cruise the Web and watch videos. My desktop computer is an iMac running OS X 10.5.8 (as well as Windows 7 Ultimate on its Boot Camp partition), and I would like to be able to have the netbook and the iMac be able to network with each other so I can copy movie files onto to the netbook's hard drive as easily as possible. Is this a correct assumption? I've seen it implied that Win 7 Starter uses less system resources than the Home or Professional versions and is therefore better for netbooks. Should I maybe consider just keeping Win 7 on there? To me, the most obvious benefit of ditching Windows is that I won't need to have anti-virus software always running in the background and slowing things down.

Ubuntu Installation :: P3 Laptop - No Cd Drive And No Operating System

Feb 22, 2010

I am trying to install a linux distrobution on a laptop that can only boot off a cd or harddrive (or network? not sure), except that it has no cd drive and no operating system. That's right, no floppy no USB no CD. I read on the internet a chap installed Ubuntu with these conditions by taking out the harddrive and installing an old copy of Ubuntu on it on another computer with a disc drive, and then putting it back in his laptop and upgrading.

Now I have installed DOS 7.10 before on this laptop hard-drive and it worked, but it wasn't very useful, being a text based system. I have tried installing Windows XP (only because I am familiar with it) but my installation CD is OEM, and doesn't seem to like it. So I put the ubuntu 4.10 cd in my desktop with the CD drive after clearing all data off the laptop hard-drive (DOS 7.10). Then the cd boots and I am given the menu to install ubuntu. So I press Enter, it starts installing and then freezes at the language selection screen. So what is my problem? I have pressed lots of keys in order to get some response, but nothing. I waited 10min for something to happen, but nothing did.

Ubuntu Installation :: Cannot Get To The Screen That Allows To Choose An Operating System

Dec 2, 2010

I recently upgraded to the newest version of Ubuntu. I dual boot with Windows 7.

All was going fine the first few times I used my system after the upgrade but I have now run into a serious problem. I'm not that technical so will explain this as best i can.

Basically, when I switch my computer on, I can not get to the screen that allows me to choose an operating system. Before it gets there it just restarts.

I guess its a problem with the GNU GRUB software. It just seems like the computer can't find it and restarts itself. So I can't get into either Ubuntu or Windows at the moment.

Ubuntu Installation :: Missing Operating System After Installation?

Dec 31, 2010

I'm new to Linux and wanted to get experience with Ubuntu Server for my new build NAS, because just a NAS OS wouldn't be enough for me. I wanted a server so I can also setup a PDC and webserver.So currently I'm installing ubuntu server 10.04 onto my newly assembled server via usb stick(didn't build in dvd rom drive) I checked the BIOS before loading the OS onto the computer and everything is detected.

there's 1 thing that keeps bugging me. After installation i get a message that the install is complete and usb sticks and all devices should be removed to prevent it from booting the install again.However when i remove the usb stick and I reboot the server I get the following message on the screen:

missing operating system


can't find operating system

When I do let the usb stick in, it boots into Ubuntu Server and i can see all my configurations that I made eventhough during install I chose to install it on the HD and paid attention to it I wouldn't touch the usb stick.From here on i could configure the rest, like samba, and give my server an static ip address via the command line.Back to my problem: what can i do to make my server boot from HD without that I have the usb stick in?

CentOS 5 :: New Installation - No Operating System Found?

Jan 12, 2010

I'm new at Centos, although I am familiar with Redhat.I have a laptop that has Windows XP installed on it, and I want this to run Centos 5.3 instead.I read some tutorials online, where I found the download "CentOS-5.3-i386-LiveCD". I burned this to a DVD-RW. When I put the disk in my drive and look my my D: Drive it reads: DVD RW Drive (D:) CentOS-5.3-i386-LiveCD.>I am burning with Nero 7 Essentials.I place this in the laptop disk drive, bring up the BIOS, set it to boot from CD, and when I boot it up I get the message "No Operating System Found".I also tried this from another computer, Windows Vista Home Premium, and it skipped the priority boot (which I set to CD) and went right to the hard disk, booting up to Vista like normal.I hope I'm just doing something wrong.. When I go into the DVD, I first of all see a folder labeled "LiveOS" - Then inside -> -osmin - IMG File - 12.0 KB-squashfs - IMG File - 677 MB

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade Failed - Want To Restore Other Operating System

On my laptop I dual boot Ubuntu 8.04 and Windows XP. During the last upgrade of my Ubuntu distro something went wrong and now I get a messed up GUI. In the meanwhile I got a new laptop on which I only run Ubuntu 9.10. So my question is: I want to delete the linux partition on my old laptop and use only Windows XP but since I use grub to dual boot, I'm afraid that deleting the linux partition and extending the Windows partition will cause problems to boot my computer.
Here's a screenshot of my partitions:

Ubuntu Installation :: Missing Operating System (XP) After Rezisizing With Gparted?

Jun 12, 2010

i tried to install ubuntu on my company notebook, where already xp is installed and I have to work with on monday again ;(I have to partitions 60+60GB with XP and Data. I tried to resize the Boot one to 50 to gain some space for ubuntu. Gparted rezided and moved partition (10unallocated+50boot+60data). I guess thats when the bootloader was destroyed. Now I can not start XP anymore. JaiiXXX! But i have to.

Question now is:

-Would it help to resize again with gparted so that i have 60+60 again and can start working?

-Should i continue installing ubuntu from usb. It is recognizing all partitions correctly and asking to install in dualboot. howeber i guess, when bootloader for xp is not working now, will it work after installation of ubuntu on the 10gb or will it make things more complicated?

-My tummy says first to repair windows xp an then install ubuntu. I have no xp cd since it is company computer. will repair morde work with another xp cd? i would prefer that. i saw that there is another way b reinstalling the xp by bootloader, but it sounds to complicated to me and i am little nervous now.p.s. i recognized that now data partition is flagged with boot . dont know why but put it back to the right partition, nothing changed.
