    Unhappy 8.04 install

    I'm trying to install ubuntu 8.04 in my PC.
    When I ask him to verify the CD a black screen appear some seconds later and there is written
    Code:
    udevd-event[1493]: run_program: '/sbin/modprobe' abnormal exit
    
    BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu12) Built-in shell (ash)
    Enter help for a list of built-in commands.
    
    (initramfs) _
    I dough of the CD.
    I tested it using my laptop where the verification succeed.

    Can you help me ?

    Re: 8.04 install

    Hi, see if using 'all_generic_ide' as a boot option helps. When you are at the main menu of the live cd press F6 and at the end of the line add
    Code:
    all_generic_ide
    then press enter.
    If this works you will need to make it permanent.

    Re: 8.04 install

    In the previous message I remarked the appearance of CD-ROM driver so I changed the CD reader
    First, I go in verification without all_generic_ide so i get the same message but udevd-event[1493] become udevd-event[1460]
    Second I wrote all_generic_ide so that what appear :
    Code:
    udevd-event[1522]: run_program: '/sbin/modprobe' abnormal exit
    
    (Here are many lines) 
    
    check finished no errors found
    press any key to reboot
    I think that now I can install ubuntu but I am afraid that I cant use the first CD reader (after the install). Can I ?

    Re: 8.04 install

    I would start at the beginning.

    MD5SUM your downloaded iso. if the hashes do not match exactly your iso is corrupted. Download another iso from bit torrent, stay away from direct downloads.

    Burn the iso as an image to CD at no more than 4x speed. if your software won't allow you to control the burn speed see here

    Boot from Live Cd and try "check disk for defects".

    If you still have the same issues see Boot options scroll down to the section dealing with F4. You may want to try safe graphics mode.

    If all else fails try the alternate text based installer

    My software doesn't allow less than 9,4x and here doesn't explain how to avoid that

    Yes it does, click on infrarecorder link and download it. it allows you to choose your burn speed. if you read the page and see it is telling you to use Infrarecorser then you will click on the link. i don't mind helping people, but people need to take the initiative and read carefully all material. We can only help you if you try to help yourself. You must be willing to read thoroughly not just what we recommend, but also the community documentation about Ubuntu.

    When I read the documentation I thought that since I am on ubuntu I should follow From Ubuntu titel (I was wrong: I had to follow from Windows titel )

    In any case the download page shows that the soft is for windows.
    It rans on ubuntu through wine and the least speed I found was 8x

    I thought that on windows it may give less.
    So I tried on XP and it doesn't give less than 8x. By the way, I tried nero but in vain.
