    [ubuntu] Re: Floppy Controllers Preventing Boot

    We have somewhat similar laptops, though I'm not surprised because they're both HPs. I didn't really get this from reading through the reports, but it did occur to me when doing so.

    If there's a...

    Translation of what yerkod said:

    "Good morning,

    Since the previous upgrade up to the last one, the same problem always shows up: the people of Ubuntu release a corrupt installation package (it...

    [ubuntu] Re: Floppy Controllers Preventing Boot

    So, I've tried adding "blacklist floppy" to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, "alias floppy off" to /etc/modules, disabling boot from floppy in BIOS, and moving the floppy down as far as possible. Nothing...

    [ubuntu] Re: Floppy Controllers Preventing Boot

    Does anyone have any idea what I need to edit to get Ubuntu to boot up? Maybe I need to blacklist something?

    PS, are the forums usually so busy that threads fall back to the tenth page after a...

    [ubuntu] Re: Floppy Controllers Preventing Boot

    Okay, I just reinstalled Natty with my laptop hooked up to the Internet so that I could download the updates. It wouldn't boot a couple times in a row, then it did once and I ran a further update as...

    [ubuntu] Re: Floppy Controllers Preventing Boot

    I'm fairly certain it's disabled. I've gone through the whole menu and can't find anything about it except disabling booting from it (which I did) and changing its position in the boot order.

    [ubuntu] Floppy Controllers Preventing Boot

    I tried installing Natty today, but, after installation, it won't boot. I make it, once I've added a verbose parameter to the boot commands, to:


    floppy0: no floppy controllers found

    I made...

    [ubuntu] Re: 10.10 Hangs on Boot

    I just checked, and there's no reference to it believing that there is a floppy drive. Rather, the only real mentions of a floppy drive are in the boot order section, and the section that allows one...

    [ubuntu] Re: 10.10 Hangs on Boot

    Well, it appears that there is no solution to this problem but to downgrade, even though I really don't want to. I still can't get either kernel (recovery or normal) to boot, and it's rather...

    Using the recovery mode seems to be hit-and-miss for me. Sometimes it'll make it past the error, and sometimes it won't. I was able to access my desktop yesterday, and I ran updates which installed...

    [ubuntu] 10.10 Hangs on Boot

    Hey all,

    I installed Maverick Meerkat today, and it was working great on the first boot (which is when I updated the system...). However, since then, it won't boot up. When I looked at the...

  18. [ubuntu] Re: Is it possible to use an ISO file without burning it to a disk?

    If I understand what you're saying correctly, no you can't transfer memory from a USB drive to a CD. Also, the procedure I described may not work at all, and may mess up your system as well; proceed...
