Ubuntu Installation Problem
Now I have encountered another problem. When the installation of "Base system" is running, it stops at around 70% + and i get an error message; "An error was returned while trying to install the kernel into the target system. Kernel package: 'linux-386'."

What is this and how do I fix it? Iv tried to fix the partition, creating a swap, etc. I also got 15gb of free space so I dont think thats the problem.

If you are 100% sure that you have a good, non corrupted image, then my guess would be: I've noticed that Ubuntu has some bug with a few sATA connectors. I've got the official Ubuntu disks shipped home and Ubuntu installed on every machine with an ordinary IDE disk, but never on sATA.

If you have a ATA disk, you might have the same problem I had. I've managed to install it afterward, by "rebooting - try again". After a couple of times, Ubuntu installer did not spit the above error message and installed fine.

I did it multiple times and it is indeed a bug on the installer. If you are patient enough, keep trying.

About patience, according to the rules, you are not supposed to bump a thread in less the 24 hours:

Good luck!

Oh, Im sorry for bumping, and thanks for the reply. I did burn a cd the 3. time with 4x speed, then the problem was fixed, I got it all installed and its now running :)

I'm glad you got it to work. And don't worry about the bumping thing. I know exactly how it is to have a problem and want to get it fixed asap ;). When I see something is taking to long I start calling friends or flying to irc, ghehe.

Good luck!
