Installation Problem - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
I just burned another CD with a new file that I downloaded and I got the same error as in the pic above. I also tried unplugging my C drive and running installation and got the same error as the original post.

I finally got it. The error in the pic popped up and I clicked OK and didn't know it took you to the ubuntu desktop to try it I guess? I formatted my 320Gb drive as Ext4 and then tried installing and it worked. Thanks for all the help. I'm sure I'll be back in this forum trying to figure out other stuff. Thanks again.

EDIT: Ugh, this is so frustrating. I restart to complete installation and there's no grub and it just boots to Windows. When I boot to the live CD it takes me back to the installation setup where I get the errors again.

Firstly the most common occurrence of this problem is leaving a USB drive, even an iPod, plugged in during install. If this applies to you, unplug it.

Secondly you didn't mention if you managed to get Linux installed while the Windows drive was connected or not. Please do so.

I'm going to assume it was disconnected since newest Ubuntu has Grub2 which is very good at detecting and installing any bootable devices. So the first thing to try would be to recreate the conditions under which you installed since the Grub2 bootloader could not install to a drive that wasn't there. So either disconnect the windows drive or set your boot priority in BIOS to the drive with Linux on it Then we'll know if your installation basically succeeded.

I will wait for further info on the present state of your system re the above issues and then recommend the best solution.

regards
Jimmy

Yes, I got it installed while the C drive was connected. After I edited that post I switched the boot priority and it worked I just didn't feel like editing that post again because I went to bed right after I was successful.

Now it's just time to start learning Linux. Thanks for the help!

EDIT: Got any tips or resources for a newbie?
