I'm trying to install the 64 bit desktop version of Ubuntu 10.04 on a new desktop. After the Ubuntu screen with the red dots, the installation halts at the (initramfs) prompt with the message:
"Unable to find a medium containing a live file system" - this is also the only message contained in casper.log.
"ls -laF /cdrom" shows an empty directory so I am assuming there has been an issue with mounting the DVD drive?
The relevant components of the system are:
Motherboard: Gigabyte - GA-P55A-UD3
CPU: Intel Core i7 860
DVD: Samsung Blu-ray/DVD Combo Drive - 5.25" internal SATA,
HDD: Western Digital 1TB, Caviar Black, SATA-III, 7200RPM, 64MB Cache
I'm quite a newbie to Linux so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
