View Full Version : [ubuntu] installing on a Satelite L675
January 31st, 2011, 04:07 AM
im trying to use a pen drive to install Ubuntu on my new L675D-7042. i have gone through all the steps on the website to make the bootable jump drive, boot from USB,i get the Ubuntu splash asking if i want to install or run from removable. Now from here is where it gets screwed up, no matter what i choose (either run or install) it runs through some boot script and just stops dead in the middle of it all with the last line of code being
[2.308605]NET: REGISTERED PROTOCOL FAMILY 1 there it just freezes with a blinking cursor and nothing else happens.
i have tried 2 different versions, Ubuntu. 10.10 and UNR 10.10
any help would be appreciated

Hi I am wondering how you got it to install Exactly... I have tried CD / DVD / PEN Drive * No Option * exists for me even using F12 to boot from a pen drive I have Kubuntu 10.10 installed on my pendrive. Was going to attempt to install from the pen, but I can't find an option to boot from it.
As for your Wireless issues.. I have read in other places on the net that it's solved by using the 64bit version of *buntu.
I have a Satellite L675D-S7015 While your machine is different from mine. I believe we are/were having the same boot/install issues. Thanks for any info you can give :)
Ok Update you need to pass this to get the computer to boot : acpi=off
