Ubuntu Installation :: Some Reason Window 7 Stops 10.10 Installation
Jan 12, 2011
I used to have a dual boot with Windows Vista, 32bit & Ubuntun 10.04, 32 bit, and it worked well. I recently installed Windows 7, 64bit in my PC, and tried to installed ubuntu 10.10, but for some reason Window 7 stops the ubuntu 10.10 installation. Can it possibly be a compatibility issue?
My PS2 keyboard randomly stops working. Sometimes instead of this it get stuck on a letter/number (for example, it starts writing "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa" non stop) and it stays that way until i reboot my computer. Even the leds (num lock, caps lock, scroll lock) stop responding. Yes, i have tried to unplug and plug in the keyboard but nothing really happens.
I'm using Fedora 14, 64-bit. My wi-fi adapter is Intel 5100 AGN on a Lenovo laptop. The wi-fi router is Zyxel. From time to time, I'm getting a black message, that a kernel component has crashed (or something similar). Here are the error details:
In most cases, after that, I'm loosing the internet connection. I can't open any website, can't ping the router (which is my default gateway) and now it happened even without any error, which really pissed me off. Logging out and back in doesn't help, I need to make a full reboot to get back my internet connection.
Under Windows 7 everything is working fine and I'm not having any trouble with the internet connectivity! I had Fedora 11 32-bit before and it was also working normally!
A friend of mine has asked me to install Ubuntu for a long time. Today I set up his partitions with Lucid LiveCD and GParted.
However, the LiveCd throws an error that makes me hesitant to continue.
If I boot a LiveCD on my computer I get a question meaning "run Live or install?"
This question does not appear on my friends computer. The first thing you see (about 2 min after boot) is an alertpanel saying something like "The installer encountered an unrecoverable error. We will now set up a desktop environment so you can investigate the problem." After that the normal Lucid (Live) desktop appears and functions well, as far as I can understand.
Sorry for not being able to give more data about my friends system. It is a stationary computer about 2 yrs old, running XP. I can't really make investigations on his system either. I had hoped to go there next time and just install Lucid.
Maybe one should try the alternate installer, but my friend just got used to the LiveCD and I would therefore like to use the LiveCD.
I don't understand why it seems to start installation by itself.
Most of all. I wonder if it is a good idea to run the installation from the desktop icon? Maybe it will encounter the same error that the LiveCd seems to encounter at startup?
I have come to like Ubuntu so much that I don't want Windows 7 anymore. I don't know if I should keep it because I have Microsoft Office 2010 Enterprise Edition and Adobe Master Collection CS5 as well. I'm not sure how I can replace those programs with different ones in Ubuntu.If there is any other reason to why I should keep Windows 7,
Sorry title should have been F13 installation without internet I am having a P4, 1GB ram, 80 GB machine. Since yesterday I am having some funny issues on this machine. i have fedora 12 installed on this machine. My mouse suddenly stop working, or the cursor changes from pointer type to a line cursor and basicaly the mouse just stops clicking. I am plannning to install fedora 13 on this machine. Have downloaded the 5 iso ( CD images).
Would choosing the option upgrade on existing Linux partition do the job? Is there a chance I loose my data files when the upgrade is done? I dont want to reinstall programs like java, eclipse, tomcat etc that I done in fedora 12. I only intend using the CD's as I dont have a lot of bandwidth and a fast internet connection to use yum.
Part way through the installation of Fedora 13 the installation stops with 510 square blocks displayed. The blocks are arranged in a 17 by 30 pattern and have two different colors. This happens with 3 different versions of Fedora 13. The 32 bit live CD version, the 32 bit version and the 64 bit version. I am able to start a live CD version of Fedora 10 but not the live CD version of Fedora 13 on this computer. The computer has an Asus P6X58D Premium mother board, an Intel i7-950 CPU and an EVGA GeForce GT 240 display.
I have just installed (after a series of crashes during the install) Fedora 15. I also have Ubuntu Natty installed and use it primarily but I wanted to reach out and try new distros.I've wanted to try Fedora and finally got enough nerve to try. Installing it crashed for no apparent reason several times.ehow it installed and booted right to Fedora.However, when finally figuring out how to run the updates, I began to have the same problem.(Someone elsewhere suggested trying to update through command line--which I did finally though I had a few crashes doing this).
Now I am logging in and then it will just inadvertently crash. I could be in firefox, or using terminal, etc. There doesn't seem to be much rhyme or reason to why this is happening and I feel frustrated. I really want to test out Fedora (it looks so nice!) but can't manage to stay afloat more than a few minutes. I might also mention that this does not happen in Ubuntu at all so I can't account for the issues. I have much to learn but I feel a bit intimidated by Fedora because it's so new to me.
I had a few system problems, and decided installing Linux might offer a good tool for fixing them up, plus I've been meaning to kick the tires on the latest version. Anyways, after a bit of futzing with disks, windows and linux install disks and the bios, the problems seem to have fixed themselves, and I've got a partition with Linux on my boot drive.
Now, as soon as I successfully booted to the grub menu I booted into windows and used EasyBCD to set up the dual boot as per [URL]. Then I tried booting into Ubuntu (Version 10.10), and after one or two screens flashed by too fast for me to really make them out, it halted on a black screen with white text. At the top was the line: Grub4dos q.4.55 2010=07=25, mem 636k/3326m/4864m end:34c6cb There was a boxed paragraph explaining minimal "Bash like" editing was supported, then below was Grub> And of course because I modified the boot before booting from the origional loader, I don't actually know if this is a problem with the install or something messed up by EasyBCD.
i have installed fedora 12(from dvd) on my laptop having window 7 OS as deafult(intel processor i330)I wanted dual boot up, so I shrink the existing C partition using window using Disk Management. And then delete the newly created volume.And install feora 12(64 bit) with option "using free space".Clean installation of fedora.But when I tried to boot window as it was not able find any window OS.Although from linux all hardrive is coming as one file system and all data on Drive are intact i.e not data is lost
Before I upgraded, I used Ubuntu 9.04 on my Playstation 3. It worked absolutely fine. A couple of days back, I decided to upgrade to ubuntu 9.10 using the update manager. The installation process seemed to go fine, until I booted up the new version. When I booted up, my mouse cursor wouldn't move, whilst my keyboard worked fine, I unplugged and plugged it back in and swapped USB ports, but it came to no use. I reinstalled Jaunty and tried the entire installation process again. After installing the new version again, the same problem occured, my mouse just wouldn't work.
When I type in the command 'uname -a' it comes up with something (I apologize, I am a Linux noob) to do with the 2.6.24 Linux kernel, Ubuntu 9.10 is on the 2.6.31 kernel. Is this the problem? I don't understand what is going on or what the solution is. My mouse is a HP optical mouse if that helps. I can't bring up the terminal window because my mouse just doesn't work, which is really annoying me.
I have an old dell server that I decided to try to install ubuntu server on. My problem is that my keyboard stops working after making my initial selection of installer language and install option. As soon as I select install, I receive a message stating that IRQ 14 has been disabled. Next, I am faced with a screen asking me to select my installation language using the tab, space, and enter keys. But to no avail, my keyboard no longer works. No arrows, no tab, no space, no enter, he num lock key will not toggle it's respective LED.
I should note that I'm using a PS/2 mouse (there are no USB ports on this server). I've also tried multiple PS/2 keyboards, and all act the same. I've looked in my BIOS settings, and the only option I see is for enabling/disabling the on-board PS/2 keyboard. I have not tried disabling that, because I have a funny feeling I would lock myself out of the server for good. I also tried non-graphical mode (at least I think that's what I did). I held in the shift key while booting the CD, and selected no to using graphics. At the "boot:" prompt, I just hit enter.
Due to the problem with the upgrade killing xp partitions, I reformatted my drives and am trying to install 10.04. However, after choosing install ubuntu or try ubuntu without changes, my monitor stops getting input from my computer. If I click the try ubuntu, I hear the start up noise on my speakers, but I see nothing.
I recently downloaded Ubuntu and I have installed the software successfully on a Dell laptop at work, however when I tried to install it in my home laptop it fails � the CD runs I get the Ubuntu load screen and then nothing. The CD stops running and I get a blank screen.I think it may be related to the screen driver, is there a way to see what is going on?
I installed Windows XP and then Ubuntu on the remaining disk. However, each time I go back to windows, windows decides to destroy grub and it stops loading, then I have to use a rescue disk and do a grub-install again. It's annoying to have to do this everytime I go to windows. Is there a way to avoid windows to destroy grub? Or install grub on a place windows cannot touch?
I have 3 hard disk drivesone regular and two sata: Ubuntu / is installed on sata /dev/sda6 Ubuntu /boot is installed on /dev/sda1econd sata hard disk /dev/sdb is emptyI have just reformatted it to ext3third hard disk is /dev/sdc with some fat and ext3 partitionsif I shutdown computer, then plug out one of sdb/sdc or both of themthen after BIOS I see grub menu (as usual)but if I hit any keyboard button the computer automatically rebootswithout any messagesI tried hitting c,e,enter - reboot I tried reinstalling grub like this:
We are running Ubuntu on VMWare EXS Server 3i (32 bit server). We tried upgrading from Version 9.4 to 9.10. The server will not boot. It throws networking errors then just comes to a blank black screen.

I'm attempting to set up my "Tablet PF1209" pen tablet in Ubuntu 10.04. There should be 4 spaces before Tablet but this forum removes them. I've followed several of the HOW TOs and the best two I've found were: [URL]
Everything works the way it should except once I 'click' with my pen. After I press down to select something or paint, I can't get the hover feature to return. Well it returns if I unplug and plug it back in. It's kinda hard to use a pen tablet when you can only move the cursor when painting/dragging.
I've never had this issue the last time I used my tablet (Ubuntu 7.04)
I'm trying to install v10.10 on my Sony Vaio VGN-NS150J, 4gb ram, 2gb core 2 duo, 320 gb HD...to no avail. The live CD boots, but the dvd drive stops spinning after i click the install button...the one that says i can't turn back. Nothing seems affected by quitting the install. I have no idea what to do except to not turn back to VistaOS. I intensely dislike that "operating system".
I was doing a update via Synaptic Package Manager, after it is nearly finished i get that message: Processing triggers for python-central ... Nothing happend so i ctrl-c it and the packet manger shows me no other errors or something else, even all the packages who was marked for upgrade are now upgraded but what about that python message? Do i have to do some check ? or maybe even a repair or even worse re install the OS?
I had Lenny installed on my Acer Aspire laptop however I've had to try to reinstall it.The installation stops at 'Retrieving file 811 of 811' from the ftp server and thats it.I've tried a few times with the same result and I have done many installs without any issue except for this time.
I upgraded to the new Ubuntu and when the computer boots up, it stops half way through loading and this message is displayed: "Starting periodic command scheduler crond Checking battery state... ...Done."
I tried to install Ubuntu netbook remix Lucid on a Lenovo IdeaPad netbook with an Intel Atom processor and a SSD HD 4 GB and a SATA HDD of 160 GB. The installation starts normally, but stops on step 3 of 7, where I choose my keyboard layer...it never passes on to step 4 of 7. I must mention that I had a corrupted installation of Windows XP running on it...I made an USB bootable disk, and everything goes fine untill step 3 of 7.
I just configured my system to be a mail server after following this howto URL...Normally before the configuration i use a huawei E1550 to browse on it but now it no longer works.It connects to the internet but refuses to browse.I cannot open any webapge or site for now.I suspect it has to do with the shorewall configuration i must have changed that has caused this.
I use a Kensington Wireless Netbook Mouse.It has worked well in Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04.For some reason in 10.10 it works, but every now and again it sticks for a second or two. Sometimes the left button stops working.If I pull out the dongle for the mouse and put it back in my mouse works fine.
