"Unable to find a medium containing a live file system" Sony Vaio PCG-N505SN
I want to install xubuntu on my old Sony VAIO PCG-N505SN; I have tried both the Live Desktop and main install, but it always gets to a point where it says "Unable to find a medium containing a live file system"
I *believe* this may be because there are issues with the PCMCIA CD-ROM drive... The laptop boots from that drive OK.
When I add boot options, do they have to appear after the "--" ?
I have tried boot options:
I have tried putting them after the --, and before it... I have never used Linux before, so it anyone had any suggestions that would be great.
It may have nothing to do with the PCMCIA CD-ROM external drive, but there are lots of posts on the internet suggesting this may be the case.
thanks for your help
