Ubuntu and problems

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all, please help me if you can I feel lost without Ubuntu!!!! I had been using Ubuntu 10.10 for a little while until I started having problems getting it to boot into the OS. Sometimes it would hang, or sometimes say something and hang but after a few, sometimes 5 or 6 restarts it would load.

Well I decided to do away with it and now I saw Ubuntu 11.04 available so I downloaded and burnt to a disk. There's problem one, disk will not boot when I restart my computer and it is burned properly. So I get into Win 7 and decide to start installation, everything is fine until it reboots and I select Ubuntu as as the OS I want to load so I can continue installation and it quickly displays: TRY (HD0,0): NTFS5:

And thats it. Hangs there forever, no other operations work at the time, and nothing else ever happens.

Im not sure what that means. I want to install from DVD on boot, but like I said it will not recognize my dvd as a boot-able dvd. So I do it from the dvd in Windows 7, so I guess that uses Wubi? It reboots to install and gets no where cuz of the message. Also I just tried reinstalling 10.10 from boot able dvd and it just leaves a flashing cursor.

^this a wubi error that windows seven has, there are a few ways to fix it, but i'm not going to suggest them, as wubi is complete failure imho smile.gif

upon boot with the dvd in the dvd rom drive (no initiating it from windows) it skips over it like its not even present or gives a error, or sets at the black screen?

you should double check bios, make sure the dvd is set to first boot? if it is, you might want to try to turn off any power features that associated with any of the sata connectors (as this on my motherboard prevents me from booting from cd rom.)

now if this all fails, you can try reburning the dvd, as their could be a physical defect on the previous dvd that is preventing "boot" up, or if you have a 1 GB or bigger, flash drive. you can download and use a program like unetbootin or the ubuntu flash drive startup creator to convert the livecd iso into a liveusb. (then set your bios to boot from usb.)

if it is the boot into black screen problem, when the purple screen pops up, that has the little keyboard and stick figure at the bottom, press f6, and a menu will pop up, choose your language, hit f6 again, and choose the "nomodeset" option, if that doesn't work, choose noapic or acpi=off (just fall back, might get you into boot.).

if it is none of these problems...then i'm out of ideas.

you might have a problem tho, with 11.04 as it uses unity, unity requires a 3d accelerated driver, ati's fglrx driver isn't known to work well with linux, and last time i checked, the opensource drivers don't support 3d acceleration...so you might have a problem, if not, great smile.gif

Thanks for the suggestions. Im actually able to get a boot from the dvd rom by using another disk with Ubuntu 10.04 that boots with no problem. As soon as it starts to load from that disk I switch it out with my 10.10 disk and install from there. That way I avoid the Wubi stuff like what you says seems to have all kinds of problems. Thanks!thumb.gif

If you can get 10.04 to install you can just update to 10.10 with what should be minor problems. I've done the same thing on Debian, I used to install Stable and update to Testing all the time and it shouldn't be any different.
