Thumbs down During installation, if Kubuntu Live CD has bad patch?


I tried to install Kubuntu on my Desktop. During the installation, if there comes a bad patch in the CD, it does not ask for another CD but quits the installation process with error message (During copying files phase, goes till 72% and gives error message that CD has a bad patch). Is it how it is installed or i am doing some error.

If you got to the normal install screen and this error happened after that, I don't think it is anything you are doing wrong. The install process is pretty much automated. As the user you need to respond to any choices you are given.

There are some possibilities, first off the image you downloaded amy be defective. This is not a common type of error.

Did you check the ISO image for md5sum check? If not, something could be wrong with the image you saved.

Did you burn the CD at a nice slow rate, with nothing going on on the system at the time? If not, the burn could be bad.

Did you use good media. Some el-cheapos will give you head aches.

Thumbs down Problematic Kubuntu installation through Win XP

Hi all,

I opted to install Kubuntu through WinXP. During installation, about 700 MB is downloaded and when i restart my PC, it shows KDE 4.1 and a hard disk. When i double click the hard disk icon, it shows a desktop and my PC hangs. I waited for quite a while (30 minutes), still same problem. I pushed restart button and booted my machine again. Boot menu is ok and loading of Kubuntu seems ok but still same problem is being faced. Where did i go wrong.

Wait! Do you mean to say that you have installed kubuntu as an application within Windows?!

OPs other thread details issues arising from an install of Kubuntu - in that thread you say that the install went with no problems. In this one you say that there were problems. Which is it?

Having failed to get a fix inside one day, OP gives up. This sort of thing is frustrating for people who are trying to help you. We barely get a chance to figure anything out and you are gone! I'd have liked to have been able to help, but I'm in a different time zone.

Oh well
