Stable on Windows 7 but Ubuntu is having none of it... :(

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Edit: Nevermind. Gave up on Linux for now. Caused me to much stress...


I OC'd my 2500K to 4.5GHZ about a year ago. I am listed in the Sandy Stable Club on here, with a custom blend test (with almost 100% RAM usage) that lasted for over 18 hours and passed every single FFT. It's been apparently solid on Windows 7 x64 ever since!

I installed UbuntuStudio x64 (Latest version) yesterday. The installer kept crashing and complaining about the CPU so I had to set it to stock for it to work. Installed UbuntuStudio all good. Was running ok apparently. So I set my OC back - crashes within seconds of booting UbuntuStudio every time. Just idling.

So last night I run through all the steps testing 1344, 1792 & 2688 FFT's with Prime95 (version 27.9). First run: 20 mins each - no problem. Second run: 30 mins each - no problem. So I left it running a custom blend lastnight with only a few hundred MB of RAM left to spare and 10 mins on each FFT so that it would do the lot in just over 12 hours. Ended up leaving it longer than that. About 13 hours I think. Anyway, it passed that fine.

So it seems as if I'm still stable in Windows 7. Any idea why UbuntuStudio crashes with this OC? I've never had an OC with a Linux OS before so I'm really not familiar with how to go about sorting it or figuring out what it is. I mean, there's no blue screen type codes to lookup or anything is there? Maybe Linux wants more voltage when idling? I dunno... Please help if you got any ideas! Thankyou thumb.gif

Have you installed all the relevant drivers for your motherboard? Are you running a dual boot?

hey Munaim! My OC was all thanks to your guide, so a year later I would like to say thanks once again smile.gif

So I haven't installed drivers for anything in Linux no. Apart from choosing the Nvidia display drivers which showed up in the Propietry drivers section. I do not know where to find the right drivers for my components... Nothing on the Asus site as far as I could see. And I was having a look on the Intel site yesterday for CPU drivers and getting very confused :/ I am well out of the loop with Linux as it's been a few years since I properly used it...

I have windows installed on my first SSD (840 Pro). Then I removed that drive and installed Ubuntu Studio on my second SSD (840 Basic). This means I have to use the UEFI to force boot off whichever HDD/OS I want. I would've liked the boot loader option but everytime I went to install Ubuntu Studio it seemed like it wanted to start messing with the first SSD that has Windows on it. Again, I was confused and didn't want it to mess anything up so did things the way I did.

It would be nice to set things up properly using one of the boot managers if possible. But I'm prepared to leave that for now and just figure out why my OC is not stable in Linux.

I hope that is sufficient info?

Thanks smile.gif

Hey no problem smile.gif

Well it could be that not having the mobo drivers (chipset drivers and such) installed is what is causing the problems. I have no idea about linux so I can't comment about that, as far as having Windows boot manager to dual boot, well may I can help with that lol

All you need for that is a tool called EasyBCD, look it up on Google or even Youtube, its pretty self explanatory and a very handy software to have especially if you're running several OS's.

Hope that helps thumb.gif

Ah yes. Someone did mention that tool to me before. I may as well have a little play with that at least until the stability issue is figured out! Thanks smile.gif

Edit: Ok just had a go with EasyBCD and when I choose to boot from Grub I get this :/ Any ideas?
