I've toyed with Live CDs and USB before but decided I'd take the plunge with a full HDD install of Hardy, but I'm having just a few problems. I'm trying to dual boot it with an already-there XP install. Please bear in mind that I'm pretty much a linux newbie.
- The 8.04 ISO gives me an annoying BusyBox message when I try to either run it live or install it:
This happens just after it loads the Kernel, and it sits there. And just sits there.Code:BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5Ubuntu12) Built-in Shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands (initramfs)_
- The 8.04 alt ISO does the same. Both checked with MD5SUM, both fine.
- Tried installing Heron to a USB to install it from there, wouldn't work (wouldn't boot from the drive, went straight to XP. I've used this drive to boot other distros, so I must be doing something wrong or Hardy doesn't like Flash Voyager GTs).
- I've got an old 7.10 Live CD and, oddly, it worked a few days ago but since trying to install Hardy it doesn't: it hangs after loading the kernel with a black screen and my DVD drive makes chugging noises.
I've a nice 10GB partition on my new 500GB hard drive just waiting for Hardy. If you've any tips on how to get it there I'd be very appreciative.
