Hello Ubuntu folks! Just tried to install Ubuntu using UNetbootin on my Dell inspiron 2650 (WinXP SP2) .
Runs through the download, decompress and reboot. Then I get this:
Try (hd0,0): FAT16: No UBNLDR
Try (hd0,1): NTFS5: 3
Try (hd0,2): invalid or null
Try (hd0,3): invalid or null
Try (fd0): invalid or null
Error: cannot find GRLDR in all devices. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart
I can't find anything useful with UBNLDR, and all the other forum posts about GRLDR seem to refer to Wubi - and not unetbootin. I've copied GRLDR from grub and overwritten it as far as I can tell with the latest version. I'm not really sure what to do next - any ideas?
Hope everyone 's having a nice holiday
Installation of Ubuntu 8.10 only consider about CD
hey everyone! i am trying to use UNetBootin to install archlinux, and i have the .iso downloaded and everything. Only problem is, after i reboot the machine, there is no option to boot "UNetBootin" as was promised. My HDD is partitioned a bit awkwardly (Ms-Dos on C, and XP on D) so could that be the problem? Thanks!
I was installing Ubuntu 8.10 via unetbootin (netinstall) on a laptop also previously running only Ubuntu.
When I boot up the laptop, I get the following error:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=427540 says that I should "try defragmenting your hard drive and running "chkdsk /r" " but since Windows isn't on the computer, I don't think that applies.Code:GRUB Loading stage1.5 GRUB loading, please wait... Error 17
In this thread post 284, tuxcantfly says
.Unless you were booting UNetbootin off a USB stick (and GRUB got installed to the USB drive not the hard drive due to a bug in Fedora's installer, this occurs on Ubuntu due to a bug in d-i, it may also affect Fedora)
I think this is the case with my Ubuntu install, but haven't been able to find anything else about this bug. Is there a known workaround when installing? Any ideas?
what about ppc ubuntu linux.

Correct me if i am wrong, and if possible, please help us out!
I hope that works for you.
Looks like this is a pretty active thread, and someone must have come across the same problem i'm having. I have two hard disks in my computer, sda and sdb. I'm currently running Ubuntu 8.10 from sdb, but it has been patched and upgraded so many times (from 6.06) that i'd like to do a fresh install onto sda (keeping my install on sdb just in case).
My current fdisk -l output:
I have an .iso of the 8.10-desktop image, so I tried using that to create a boot partition on /dev/sda4. I had to select "USB drive" and select "show all drives" before I could select /dev/sda4 though. Once that was done, there was no indication in my /boot/grub/menu.lst that anything had changed... I think it's relying on the USB boot capability of my BIOS to take care of that for me.Code:rb4@corsair:~$ sudo fdisk -l Disk /dev/sda: 122.9 GB, 122942324736 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14946 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x00042f46 Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sda1 1 33 265041 83 Linux /dev/sda2 34 555 4192965 82 Linux swap / Solaris /dev/sda3 556 14685 113499225 83 Linux /dev/sda4 * 14686 14946 2096482+ 83 Linux Disk /dev/sdb: 122.9 GB, 122942324736 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 14946 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Disk identifier: 0x0003eadd Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/sdb1 * 1 14759 118551636 83 Linux /dev/sdb2 14760 14946 1502077+ 5 Extended /dev/sdb5 14760 14946 1502046 82 Linux swap / Solaris rb4@corsair:~$
How can I get it to do an install to /dev/sda4, and make the appropriate entries in my /boot/grub/menu.lst?
I am trying to get unetbootin to work in puppy linux to "upgrade" to ubuntu but seem to be having some problems with the system. I receive the following error after reboot. Error 23, then it goes back to grub. I believe (not sure though) this may have to do with the fact that it states that I need to install util-linux,udev, mtools, and p7-zip. I am a very VERY recent convert and have no idea how to get these as they are not puppy packages, and have no idea what to do to install them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
