Problem installing Ubuntu 8


Problem installing Ubuntu 8

All is good until I click install then I tried the noapic option and it installed but now when I start up the following problem occurs

STARTING UP…

[ 31.869 160] .. MP-BIOS BUG: 8254 TIMER NOT CONNECTED TO I0-APIC
[ 32.048 161] KERNEL PANIC – NOT SYNCING: I0-APIC + TIMER DOSEN’T WORK! BOOT WITH APIC = DEBUG AND SEND A REPORT
THEN TRY BOOTING WITH THE `NOAPIC’ OPTION

A similar error occurs when I try to install fedora 8

Have you tried doing what the error message says? You should try using the boot parameters "noapic" and "acpi=off". You can add these parameters to the GRUB boot loader. When you see GRUB display the boot menu you can press the escape key. Then you can edit the boot command.

You might also try turning the ACPI and APIC off on the motherboard BIOS setup. Usually when the computer is first turned on you can press the delete key or some other key to start the BIOS setup. That will show you a menu of BIOS features that you can modify. Then you select "Exit Saving Changes" to get out of the BIOS setup utility.

You should also include the brand and model of the computer or motherboard in your question.

open /boot/grub/menu.lst and at the end of the kernel line add noapic

if you add noapic to the end of the kernel line in /boot/grub/menu.lst you shouldn't have to do that every time
