UF.org down | installation disaster 12.04 please anyone
Last night I was installing 12.04 on my friends laptop and at the very end of the installation my Internet disconnected and the installation seemed to freeze for an hours! So I shut it down. I came to the library today where the Internet is strong. I opened the Ubuntu desktop from the USB. Clicked install. Choose language | Los Angeles... And then black screen with text I don't remember. Ugh!
OK restart. Now I don't have the picture. This is grub? Is it GNU GRUB version 1.99-21ubuntu3.9 There's no U.I.
I have 4 options:
Ubuntu, with Linux 3.5.0-23-generic
Ubuntu, with Linux 3.5.0-23-generic (recovery mode)
Memory test (memtest86+)
Memory test (memtest86+, console 115200)
If I try and boot from 1st option I get blinking line at top left.
If I boot 2nd option I get Recovery Menu (filesystem state: read-only)
resume Resume normal boot
clean Try to make free space
dpkg Repair broken packages
failsafe Run in failsafe graphic mode
fsck Check all file systems
grub Update grub bootloader
network Enable networking
root Drop to root shell prompt
system-summary System summary
*obviously this is where I'm stuck. I already tried 1, 2, 3, and 5, and now trying 4, and 6. I figure I need to use a command under root. Please advice anyone??
The black screen with text you don't remember, did it by any chance say "Kernel Panic"? Could you try again and see?
This could be a hardware problem and not related to Internet connectivity at all. Have you tried option 3, "Memtest86+", from the first menu?
I'm trying that now. I was thinking I had problems with network because I was connected at start of install and then I had "options update with network" ticked. The OS was booting fine from USB I so not think it is hardware issue it over ran my windows xp OS. I then started an install today, but half way through it have me the "panic screen" yes it is very possible that is what it said. I should have paid closer attention but I really want expecting this trouble.
I'm running memtest86+ (3rd option) now. I'm really not sure what option to try next. I'm contemplating downloading 10.04 LTS on my android. I have a flash drive device my SD card fits into maybe install older OS.
This pc is IntelŪ PentiumŪ M processor 1.60GHz 1.60 GHz, 504 MB of RAM 74 GB hdd HP Pavilion dv4000 laptop 2002
I went back into BIOS and USB was gone! So I had to go into "boot order (esc)" and USB was there. Went into advanced changed boot order back to USB. Now desktop is back up =() Now retrying install. Thanks for the advice. Hope this makes it this time =ll
