View Full Version : [ubuntu] Need help installing Ubuntu on HP DV6-2190us

June 16th, 2010, 01:06 PM
Every time I try to install ubuntu 10 on my DV6-2190us it says "Filesystem check or mount failed" and then goes to maintenance mode and I have the terminal and no GUI? Does anyone have this problem?

I have also tried several different versions and I keep getting errors with everything I try.

sorry for the delay...i have tried following your steps without success. I managed to install 10.04 alternate 64 using a usb but in order to get grub to load i still have to have the usb inserted. i take it grub was installed onto to usb itself. also when i do manage to boot to 10.04 all i get is the terminal. I tried going the cd route but i cant get ANY destro to boot without a restart loop.

also i am trying to dual boot with windows se7en nvidia 64
