    Fresh Install 14.04 Trusty Beta 2

    I just did a complete 64Bit fresh install to Seagate Pipeline HD 2 500Gb SATA harddrive.

    Intell 2.5Ghrtz Dual Core 4Gb Ram.

    Install went flawless. When I boot the system, it gives the following error at every boot up.

    error : malformed file
    Press any key to continue.......

    I could not locate an error log under /var/log .

    Thanks
    Bob

    Is there any indication as to the point in the loading process this error appears? We still need to do updates, perhaps on a daily basis, to trusty tahr. This problem might be fixed by an update.

    The screen is blank, No boot information or process, but the error shows just as the border around the screen edge is shown.

    I got that message a couple days ago. Pressing a key got me booted up, I ran update/upgrade, rebooted and never saw it again.
    I just thought of a hiccup as it booted up, after thinking of a grub problem.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Same here for pressing key to boot. I'll try the update/upgrade in about 15/20 minutes. I wasn't sure
    that would have been needed since I just downloaded the iso this morning.

    Thanks
    Bob

    I'm running the update now. 95+ megs. But I did notice an update error that has me concerned.

    Likely means your installation is broken.

    Update finished, now I have a additional happening.

    Now it gives me the boot screen to select *Ubuntu or other advanced boot options after every reboot/cold boot, then after it starts *Ubuntu I still get the error : malformed file press any key to continue.

    It's not a big deal. I'm not running anything else on the hard drive, just this beta 2 so I could see how it's working. My working system has 12.04. I'll run an update over the weekend and see if it still does it and maybe even do a clean install.

    Thanks
    Bob

    Could be one of those things since they only have AMD 64bit iso. I'm running intel.
