Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded From 9.04 To 10.04LTS - Can't Use Hard Drive

Dec 1, 2010

I recently upgraded from 9.04 to 10.04LTS , i wanted to start a fresh and i click the option for Ubuntu to use entire hard-drive. However on closer inspection Ubuntu has created two partitions , one sized at 289 GB and the other at 8.5GB the 8.5GB partition is the one with the os installed on it. It is sadly locked and i cant combine the two partitions :/.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded From 8.04LTS 10.04.1LTS , Now I Can't Boot.

Aug 28, 2010

I just upgraded my server, and now I am stuck at "Kernel panic- not synching: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(0,0)" I have read other suggestions about booting to previous kernels to reinstall latest kernel, but that doesn't work since I can't boot to any kernel. How can I fix this with the restore cd or from grub2 command line. Reinstalling is not an option as I have lots of configurations that I don't want to lose.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgrade From 8.04LTS To 10.04LTS?

Nov 1, 2010

I initiated the on-line upgrade from 8.04 LTS to 10.04 LTS. When the upgrade finished and restarted the computer, I got the following messages:

ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/32a1eb0a-c9a4-4867-ac4d-5fbb2acafa76 does not exist. opping to a shell! BusyBox v1.13.3 (ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1 ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. (initramfs)

It leaves me at that initramfs prompt.

Fedora Installation :: EIDE Hard Drive Recognized As Sda Hard Drive

May 1, 2010

Trying to install Fedora 12 using the 6 CDs. Trying to install on an older x86 box.Problem is that when detecting my hard drive, Fedora 12 recognizes it as a sda hard drive instead of hda hard drive. I have no SCSI connected to my computer what so ever. It's an old fashion PATA Western Digital hard drive.If I proceed with the install, Fedora 12 only installs 200MB of the OS from the first CD only. No options for additional software or anything.

Ubuntu Installation :: Upgraded From 9.10 To 10.04 No Any Drive Found?

Jun 14, 2011

I did an upgrade on the weekend from Ubuntu 9.10 to 10.04 (karmic to lucid). Now, when I restart my computer, it goes through the regular load screen showing my P5K Asus motherboard, just like before but instead of showing the Ubuntu load screen, it tries to start grub ("Grub loading stage 1.5") but fails and then says "No any drive found" and the screen goes black. I've tried changing the drive configuration in the BIOS to AHCI or RAID and that didn't work. I've tried disabling JMICRON but to no avail. I'm running out of options here.

Ubuntu Networking :: 10.04 - 8.04LTS And 10.04LTS Have A Pre-installed NIC Driver That Is Not Compatible With The Bcm5705?

May 7, 2010

I attempted a distribution upgrade from 8.04LTS (32 bit) to 10.04LTS (32 bit). Once converted, I had no wireless or wired internet, along with numerous other bugs. After relentless hours of trying to resolve the problems, I converted back to 8.04LTS and installed the b43 drivers; I have wireless, however, still no wired connection. I've provided the outputs of the "sudo lshw -C network" terminal command below both before conversion to 10.04 and after reversion back to 8.04LTS. You'll notice that the NIC is not even listed after reversion (this is the same output that 10.04LTS gave me as well).

1.) Does anyone know if the terminal command will identify the NIC if the NIC Driver (assuming it's tg3) is not installed?

2.) Does 8.04LTS and 10.04LTS have a pre-installed NIC driver that is not compatible with the bcm5705?

Ubuntu :: Mouse Cursor / Video Corrupted After Upgrade From 8.04LTS To 10.04LTS

May 30, 2010

I've recently upgraded from 8.04LTS to 10.04LTS. About 90% of the time after boot-up, my mouse cursor seems to be corrupted; I can vaguely see the arrow (or part of it anyway) underneath some squiggly lines. The application KeePassX is affected too; there are some display corruption issues. Sometimes (maybe 1 boot in 10) the mouse cursor looks fine. I have a Radeon 9200 and have looked in the Forum for similar problems but they don't quite match up to mine.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installing 11.04 On External Hard Drive Drive?

Jun 19, 2011

I would like to install Linux Ubuntu 11.04 on an external hard drive - its partitioned and ready for Linux.I've downloaded and burnt the .iso file to a DVD so its all good so far...First of all... is this possible without messing up my macbook? I don't particularly want to break into my macbook to disconnect the hard drive (I read on a tutorial for a previous version of Ubuntu that I'd have to do that... - does it still apply to 11.04?) - as it voids the warranty (I checked ).The reason I ask this is because I had a friend who partitioned their internal hard drive and installed Ubuntu on it. But after installation was complete they couldn't boot up Windows 7 or Ubuntu... and it resulted in them having to clean install Windows 7... - I don't want to end up in that situation

Second... If it is possible to install it without messing up my macbook... - Do I just follow the install instructions but just make sure that where possible I make sure that everything is installed on my external hard drive?...I really need someone to put my mind at rest that everything will run smoothly and that I'll be able to run Mac OS X as usual but also that I'll be able to boot from my external hard drive to run Ubuntu.

General :: Move Smaller Hard Drive To Partition On A Larger Hard Drive?

Mar 16, 2010

My parents bought a new hard drive for a laptop that I've owned for several years. It's much larger than the current one, so I plan on splitting it up to dual boot it with Ubuntu.I have no problem with partitioning a drive (I always keep a LiveCD handy), but my question is this: how can I go about moving the existing partition to the new drive? This is a laptop, so I can't simply plug the new drive into another slot.

Also, even if I manage to move it, will Windows still work on the new drive in a larger partition? I've had this laptop for quite a while, and I've lost the recovery discs that came with it a long time ago. I also have a lot of software without CDs to reinstall them with. This makes not reinstalling Windows a high priority.

Ubuntu Installation :: Full Installation On USB External Hard Drive?

Apr 26, 2010

I disconnect my internal Windows hard drive first. Then run the installer from the Desktop CD. Everything works great.This is approximately the steps I take: I reboot, everything is good. I reconnect my internal hard drive, boot to Windows, reboot back to Kubuntu, everything is still good. I run updates and follow the instructions of the Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto. I reboot again, still no problems. At this point, I figure everything is OK and I have no worries. I boot to Windows and do some work in that environment. The next time I boot to the external Kubuntu hard drive, I get the following errors:

Begin: Starting AppArmor profiles ...
mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory

Ubuntu Installation :: Installation On External Hard Drive Fail

Jan 10, 2011

My original intention was to install a distribution of Ubuntu onto an external hard drive so i can use it on different computers. I first downloaded and burned a copy of Ubuntu 10.10 and booted my Acer laptop to it. I then plugged in my external hard drive and tried to install ubuntu onto it by partitioning the external hard drive. After I did that, I booted from the external hard drive on my laptop and it ran the new distribution i created. However, when I tried to boot it from a different computer it said something like "partition not found." So the next time I tried to install ubuntu onto the external hard drive with out partitioning it, using the entire drive. This is what started to cause problems.

Now when I start up my laptop without the external hard drive plugged in i get "error: no such device: xxxx..... grub rescue>. When I start it up with the hard drive plugged in a grub comes up with the new installation, my old ubuntu installation, and my old windows vista.

Ubuntu Installation :: Installation Error No Hard Drive Detected

Feb 11, 2011

After lot's of research i still can't find any solution to my problem, that's why i'm posting a message here.So, it's been few days now that i'm trying to install ubuntu 10.10, with the live CD, but each time when i must choose where to install it or how to make partition, it just tell me there is no hard drive..(i have two 1 TB sata hard drive )So i tried many things, GParted doesn't find my hard drive either, they appear in the bios (i can run windows), try to uninstall a raid program that might hide the hard drive, but it didn't work either.

So i came to see that i had Marvell 9123 which seems to be a SATA controller, and few people seems to have some similar issue with that Marvell stuff..I'm quite desperate now.. i tried to install ubuntu on a USB drive but my computer just doesn't boot on it (i tried this method for the sb drive URL...

Ubuntu Installation :: 9.10 On Second Hard Drive?

Feb 18, 2010

Just wanted to ask the wisdom of those who installed Ubuntu 9.10 on a second HD (win Xp is allready on the first HD) how this is exactly done. In addition, I read some old threads ( [URL] and one suggestion is to change the second HD (where ubuntu indends to sit) to be the primary HD. If I'm not wrong this requires changing the hardware itself (jumpers), something that I preffer not to do. So I would also like to know if hardware changes are nessasary

Ubuntu :: Cannot See My Hard Drive During Installation?

Jul 3, 2010

I decided to migrate my PC over to it the problem is though ubuntu cannot seem to find my hard drive when it comes to ask about the Partition Table.At the moment my hard drive is running Windows 7. When I boot into ubuntu from the Live CD I can see the drive in there and browse it so it doesn't look like a driver issue to me.My next though was maybe the install CD was broken to I downloaded it again and wrote to a fresh CD...same thing. I also get an error during boot saying "An unrecoverable error has occurred" but it then continues to boot (this is when booting to the Live CD not windows).

So I then thought OK, I'll try and install Kubuntu then install Gnome over the top of it...same thing on Kubuntu. No error message this time but when it comes to asking me to setup the partitions I just get a blank screen.

Ubuntu Installation :: 10.04LTS - Errors After It Ejects The CD?

May 3, 2010

I just purchased a HP G2-144DX.

Ubuntu 10.04 installed like a charm (I only need to find out why the headphones work but the main speakers do not), but at the end when the procedure ejected the CD, I immediately got:

I/O Error on Device sr0

repeated over and over for a couple dozen blocks.

I did a hard reset and the system is acting normally, but I'm wondering if other people have had the same problems?

Also, when running glxgears, is a score of 3000 normal for the Intel GMA HD video chipset?

Ubuntu Installation :: Hard Drive With 0 Space On It

Jan 24, 2010

I downloaded the Ubuntu installer for windows and it gave me a pop-up saying:
256MB of memory are required for installation. Only 233MB are available. Installation may fail in such circumstances. Do you wish to continue anyway?
This is an odd situation because when I finished installation of Ubuntu the first time (I uninstalled it,) it wasn't responsive and said my hard drive had 0 space on it. I still have about 23GB left on my disk. How do I clear out space so the installation can work properly?
