Hello,

What is 6.06? What distro are you using? Is it debian, like stated in this "message?" Normally, I see something like this when I burn a LIVE image to disc, and boot from it. Could you tell us how you are getting this error? You need to be more descriptive about your posts, and give us more details to better assist you.

Cheers,

osh

Here's the distro name

I am using Kubuntu 6.06.
Also, it happens when I boot off a Kubuntu 6.06 Live CD.

Kubuntu 6.06 is way outdated and unsupported. It will not work on newer hardware.
May be you want to try Kubuntu 11.10, which was released today.

Once good

It once did work on my new PC!
I would like you to come up with solutions.
After all, we have no more blank CDs!

Carsten,

The reason we move to newer releases is to resolve problems like this. It may have worked once, but as there is no longer any support for such an old version, there may not be much to be done about it. Do you have any flash media? USB drives can be made bootable to install Ubuntu from.

Are you still using the same PC on which you previously had Kubuntu installed, the one which you now have windows 7 on?
You didn't indicate when you see this message. Booting almost any Linux CD will show that message or one similar. The Kubuntu version you are using is over 5 years old.

The Windows 7 install on the harddisk boots!

Buy a blank CD or USB thumb drive and try a currently-supported release. Kubuntu 6.06 is a waste of time since it is no longer supported in any way. Surely your time is worth more than an inexpensive blank CD?
