Question Problems Installing Ubuntu


I am new to linux and tried to install Ubuntu 7.04 on my desktop computer.
I received an error when it started.

Int 14: CR2f8000000 err 0000000 E1P c02c384 cs00000060 flags 00010007
Stack: c00f8050 c03f129b c0371d8c 000000002 c00f8059 000f8050 00000000 00000000

As I said I am new to Linux (I am an intermediate windows user) but to me it looks like a problem with a piece of hardware? I am at work right now or I would post my system information. From memory I have an onboard video card that is disabled and a Geforce 5600 graphics card. It is a Celeron processor 1.5 gigs of ram. I can post more specific information tonight when I get home if it is needed. Has anyone heard of this error? Any ideas?
And if it is a driver problem, how would you resolve this? Or can you?

Please provide more details on the installation---eg is it dual-boot or did you install Ubuntu by itself?

Where in the startup process does this error appear?

Do you get the same error every time you re-boot?

At what point does that error appear? Is that before or after the grub notification?

You're quite right though it does seem like a hardware thing. Specific details may help

This is a dual boot with windows xp professional. It gives me this error almost immediately after I press install Ubuntu. Something flashes before the error but it went to fast for me to read it. And yes I get the error every time I reboot and try it again.

Where are you pressing "install Ubuntu"? This implies that Ubuntu is not yet installed. Maybe you meant to say that you selected Ubuntu from the list of options in GRUB??

I am sorry I am not familiar with the term GRUB. When I put the cd in and start the computer it comes to a screen that says UBUNTU at the top and has prompts to select. The first is install Ubuntu. That is what I press and get this error.

OK, so you have not installed yet. Can you boot up from the CD and run Ubuntu in the "live CD" mode? I don't remember what the choices are--but one is something like "run from CD".

Also, please post the specs on your computer--RAM, harddisk size, etc.

Note that to actually install Ubuntu, you will likely need to create some empty (unpartitioned) space on the harddrive.

I have 20 gigs of unpartitioned space available on the hard drive. I haven't tried that but I will try it tonight and let you know. Thank you for your help!

installing ubuntu

I'm a new starter but have been reliably been told that linux tends to trail more modern hardware and if you get the latest linux software there maybe an issue with older software. There are many versions of o/s try another before you blame your hardware, perhaps?
