View Full Version : [ubuntu] Mounting CD-ROM on installation

October 1st, 2008, 07:51 AM
Everytime I try to install Ubuntu or one of its variants I always get an error in which I cannot mount the CD-ROM during the install. (As an aside, I tried installing gOS and got a BusyBox console for much the same reason)

I'm using the text installer for Ubuntu 8.04.1 at the moment and I'm getting an error saying

Detect and mount CD-ROM
Your installation CD-ROM couldn't be mounted. This probably means that the CD-ROM was not in the drive. If so blah balh blah

The CD is obviously in the drive. What are my options?
