Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot - Cannot Do From Live CD (10.10) / Enable This?

Dec 31, 2010

I've been dual booting 10.10(with Windows7) for about a month. Today is the first time I've encountered a serious problem.

This morning, nothing functioned properly after trying to open up several programs. The computer seemed to be "frozen", although the mouse was working fine.

I decided to reboot, but then encountered an even bigger problem. It failed to boot and got this message code...

Ubuntu :: Can't Boot Without First Using Live CD / Enable This?

Apr 30, 2010

I installed Lucid (clean) after being v. satisfied w. Karmic.

Lucid has presented problem after problem, including the most irritating one thus far: I can't boot (system disk error) unless I put the Live CD in (the Karmic version, yet) and select "boot from first disk". Once that is done the boot proceeds normally.

Is there anyway out of this? I have installed and reinstalled w/ the same problem. Should I reinstall from the Net and not the Live CD?

Ubuntu :: Not Able To Boot Live Cd After Other OS BSODed / Enable This?

Jan 28, 2011

I am trying to install Ubuntu on my sister's computer after her Windows BSODed a few times and so I offered her a "failback" system.
The problem is however that the live cd gives a few errors like "cannot mount sth sth sth" (will edit a bit later on after i get another computer to work)
Is it possible that this problem might relate to some Windows BSODs that she experienced earlier on?
Sorry for the lack of details, I'll steal the thing from her and post more accurate details within a split of a second.

Ubuntu :: Deluge WebUI Enable / Re-enable Subsequently Unable To Re-enable It (doesn't Appear In The Side Panel Again)?

Feb 10, 2010

I recently installed Deluge 1.2.0 from the following PPA:[URL]I using this on two different Linux computers. One is running Linux Mint 8 and the other is running Ubuntu Netbook Remix 9.10. The first time on either computer when I enable WebUI in the Deluge GUI it works fine. However if I ever disable it in plugins section I am subsequently unable to re-enable it (doesn't appear in the side panel again). Rebooting or reinstalling Deluge seems to have no effect.Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot / Enable This?

Dec 30, 2010

Error: no such device: f50139a2-b475-4ef5-8217-051bd145a24e.
grub rescue> _

I know it is saying that the harddrive that I installed ubuntu is missing.

Heres the story:

My friend's computer wouldnt let him boot to the CD to install Ubuntu on his computer.

So I put his harddrive into my computer as my 3'rd Harddrive and booted the CD on my Machiene and installed Ubuntu to his harddrive.

We got ubuntu to work just fine, and then I removed his harddrive from my computer... big mistake. I no longer have the harddrive that we installed ubuntu to so I cannot use any programs or anything.

What I want to do is get my Windows 7 working again. Right now I cannot do ANYTHING.

I have tried code...

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot From CD / Enable This?

Jan 9, 2010

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and I've been trying to boot into the live mode. I can get into the main 'Try Ubuntu without any changes' menu, but selecting that option causes the CD tray to spin up, followed by the head audibly flailing about for a minute or two causing the laptop to noticeably vibrate, followed by nothing. It doesn't boot or give any errors, it just stops. I can read the discs just fine in Windows.

So far I've tested shipit CDs of 9.10, 9.04 and 8.10. All cause the above problem. 8.04 works perfectly.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot After Hard-reset After Using Rm -r As Root / Enable It?

Apr 6, 2010

First of all, i'll just say this myself. I'm a dumbass and tried to fix somethings that wasn't even a problem from the start and now my 9.10 installation is totally fubar. There, done, now let's move on.

Ok, so I tried to delete a folder after compiling two binaries to the wrong folder and used the
rm -r
command on what I thought was the folder /home/lars/bin. And to add to the dumbass-ering, I was root while doing this. The computer hangs and leaves me with no other options than doing a hard-reset via power-button.

After rebooting I can't even see the login screen, it just hangs at the Ubuntu symbol.

So I give the recovery mode option in my grub menu a try and it gives me a bunch of lines, all looking good until I get this and the boot just stops with a blinking underscore. code...

Should I just beat myself for a while and then reinstall the OS or what...?

The hardware involved is a Asus EEEpc 1000h.

ps. I'm new to Linux and have so-far managed to get around by following guides and tips, just a heads-up.

Ubuntu :: GRUB Leaves Win7 Unable To Boot / Enable This?

Jan 2, 2011

I am able to get into GRUB and boot Linux, but whenever I select Windows, all I get is an error about a missing boot loader.

After the Windows install disk failed to repair it, I reinstalled the Windows system and then used the Ubuntu live-CD to restore GRUB in order to be able to boot into Linux again. Now I have the same problem as when I started (although the error screen is somewhat different now).

Does anyone know how to break this "evil circle" of mine?

I am using the 10.10 (GRUB 2 in other words).

Ubuntu :: Unable To Boot Ubuntu / Unable To Access Root Drive From Live CD

Jul 16, 2010

Im having a serious issue with booting ubuntu 10.04, the issue being it wont boot up at all, after working so well for so long (i suspect some recent dodgy system updates are responsible) so I decided to just reinstall ubuntu from scratch again but wanted to retrieve some important files from my root device. So I am running the live desktop and I can see my previous filesystems under places but cannot mount or open my original root device where the files I want to recover are located, I receive this error msg:"Unable to mount 77 GB Filesystem.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Boot Without Live CD ?

Apr 5, 2010

I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 fom a Live CD. My system is a Dell Optiplex 745 that originally had Windows XP installed. Ubuntu is the only OS. Windows XP was removed.

The sytem appears to be running normaly.

When I shutdown (not restart) and then power cycle the computer, I see the Dell splash screen then I get the message: "Errorauto-sensing secondary master hard disk drive. Strike F! key to continue, F2 to run the setup." F1 repeats the message. F2 enters the BIOS setup but does not lead to a fix.

If I place the Live CD in the tray and boot from that, I get to the Ubunt install directory.

If I click "Check disc for defects", then run the check. (I can even interupt the check without completing by hitting ESC), then the system reboots.

I see the Dell Splashscreen.
I see the Ubuntu Live CD menu
I choose "Boot from first hard disk"
Then Ubuntu loads perfectly. I enter my username's passord.
The system runs fine until the next time I shutdown.

How do I get the system to boot directly without needing the LiveCD?

Apple :: Unable To Boot Mac After Trying Out Ubuntu Live Cd / Sort It?

Jun 12, 2010

I have a serious problem! I downloaded and burnt Ubuntu 10.04 and then chose it as start up volume in Snow Leopard's start up disk preference dialogue and although Ubuntu runs successfully from the cd (I'm typing from it now) I can no longer boot into OS X at all.

I have tried all of the different short cuts at boot up to no avail, even trying 2 keyboards. It insists on looking for the Ubuntu disk and if it is not in the drive comes up with an error message stating that a system disk cannot be found.

Is there any kind of tool on Ubuntu that will let me change the start up disc/interact with the Mac's efi settings? I previously had refit installed but this disappeared just before I booted the cd, is it worth using the live cd?

I tried booting from a Tiger dvd but it wouldn't let me do so, it just returned me to the ominous "System disk not found" message.

Does anyone have any kind of idea? Perhaps some kind of shell script that will reinstall refit? I'm guessing that any kind of dvd designed for PC will prob boot, any kind of OS X recovery disk compatible with MBR available?

OpenSUSE Install :: Unable To Boot From Live USB On HP Laptop

Jul 26, 2011

A few weeks ago I installed Fedora Linux 64-bit on my HP dv4-1428ca laptop which was running Windows 7. At that time I created a Live USB using the fedora-live usb tool and it booted fine. A couple days ago I decided to try out openSUSE, so I downloaded the 64-bit live-cd image and tried to create a live usb using the SUSEStudio ImageWrite provided in the documentation. The tool kept giving me an error message, so I decided to try unetbootin instead. However, when I tried to boot the live usb on my HP laptop, it presented me with the message.

"SYSLINUX 4.04 EDD 2011-04-18 COPYRIGHT (C) 1994-2011 H. PETER ANVIN ET AL" with a blinking cursor and nothing else. I've tried a variety of alternative programs for creating live USB's (pendrivelinux, linux live usb creator, unebootin), and verified the checksum of the iso file for openSUSE 11.4 64-bit, and still was not able to get past the "SYSLINUX..." message on my HP laptop. However, the live USB does boot on the other computers in my house. Interestingly, if I create a live USB using the tool provided by Fedora, it will boot fine. However the Fedora Live USB tool cannot be used for other distros.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Install Kubuntu 10.4 - Unable To Find A Medium Containing A Live File System

Aug 15, 2010

I cannot install Kubuntu (or Unbuntu) 10.4 on my husband's computer. I have spent 5 hours on this and cannot get anywhere. I am deeply frustrated. The iso I burned to CD is good (works on 2 other computers). His computer will not boot from USB, no matter what I do to the drive order in BIOS. After loading the blue screen with the Kubuntu logo on it (and the blue-white dots), the screen changes to black and shows the following text:

BusyBox v1.13.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.13.3-1ubuntu11) built-in shell (ash) (initrafs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system.

He really needs to get rid of WinXP. Kubuntu is what I have on my computer (and love it!). Here is some info about his computer:

OS Name Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
Version 5.1.2600 Service Pack 3 Build 2600
OS Manufacturer Microsoft Corporation

Fedora Networking :: Wireless Enable Correctly On Boot / NFS Can Mount Properly At Boot Also?

Aug 8, 2009

I have a server that NFS exports the /home directory out to other computers. On the desktop they all work great, but on a wireless laptop, this is where the problem occurs. The wireless enables after the person logs in, rendering the NFS export /home useless on the laptops.Is there anyway to have the wireless enable correctly on the boot so that NFS can mount properly at boot also?I'm using Fedora 11 (32bit) with a wireless router that has a security of WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES]. I could switch to some of the older versions if necessary to get this working.
