Thumbs up Help me to install software


He!
I want to install Linux SL6.7 on a Pc on which is already installed Window 10 but I can not.
The hard disk has been partitioned so that Windows 10 occupies 500 GB and 500 GB of unallocated disk space is reserved for linux. I can not boot on the linux installation CD.
Who can help me ?.

cordially

Justin

Kjustin,

Welcome to LQ.

First make sure that you have all your personal data backed up to an external drive.

You need to be a little more specific about your problem so after reading the links posted above, if you are having problems, what exactly happens when you try to boot? Have you set the CD drive to first boot priority in the BIOS? Did you verify the download of the SL iso and burn it as an image to the CD?

My thought is that the links posted are not specific to Scientific Linux. They do talk about how to install for dual boot and also speak about potential UEFI BIOS problems. I would consider them a reference versus direct instructions for your case.

Backing up your data is recommended, as well as checking the boot priority and also describing how you've created this CD.

I do not find any instructions on the SL site describing how to create a boot disk from their ISO images. But what you are supposed to do is to download their ISO image and burn it to a CD or DVD not as a file, but as a full disk image. Most CD/DVD burning software recognizes that an ISO is a full disk image, intended to create an entire disk. If you are having trouble with this step, please update with the software you are using to burn your CD and describe the steps you've taken to complete that process.

You also may have downloaded the incorrect version of SL. For instance there are 64bit and 32bit versions and one may not be compatible with your system.

Sorta of a side question. Have you considered running linux as a virtual desktop instead of duel boot? It would be safer and easier.

Did you switch off secure boot?

Hello purple90 and Kjustin.

I agree, if you are new to linux, and you have a newish, somewhat powerful computer then try using a free virtual machine. It lets you run both windows and linux at the same time.

Messing with your new window 10 system may leave you without a computer for a few days. Unless you know how to recover your windows from disaster then you should stop right now.

The best ways may be to make a usb flash drive install or use a VM to start for new users.

Thumbs up

I attempt the installation from SL- 6.7-x86-64 DVD.iso, engraved as an image.
The CD drive has been set to the first boot priority in the BIOS.
I had already installed it successfully under Windows 7, but when I proceed in the same way under Windows 10, I get a message like this:

Integrity Check

Quote:

I would suggest you test the integrity of the media before attempting to install. That can be done once the system is able to boot into Linux installation kernel. But if it fails to load properly then you may have to test the media ISO file online depending on the website where you have imaged the file. Also, you could find Windows software to do that for you. I got this link, although haven't tried it out :

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-check-635362/

More so, ensure that your system meets the minimum requirements of the distribution that you want to install.

Hope this helps!

When the boot menu appears, type:
Code:
linux acpi=off
and see if it will boot.
