Re: Howto: Install Ubuntu without a CD
Used unetbootin-ubuntu710rev113 to attempt dual boot with XP. All seemed to go according to plan until, right at the end of the process it hangs , with flashing cursor, at:-
ubuntu login:*starting deferred execution scheduler [OK]
*starting periodic command scheduler crond [OK]
*running local boot scripts (/etc /rc, local) [OK]
First try the flashing cursor appeared on the left, second try on the right, otherwise no apparent differences in the process. No matter how long I wait, nothing further happened - only option is to reboot by switch on cpu.
I have not uninstalled unetbootin-ubuntu710rev113 as prompted by screen on restarting windoze, and Win XP works OK.
The "boot options screen is starting to look jungle-like with lots of entries because of my various attempts to get unetbootin to complete!
What now please, oh wise ones? BTW profile inserts details of a laptop I was having problems with. The above comments apply to running unetbootin on my desktop PC a Time AMD i386 machine with only 256MB Ram and 80GB HDD, 1.15Mhz.
