    BusyBox during LiveCD bootup

    I'm trying to install 8.04 on a fresh machine, squeaky clean.

    Here is the machine I am working with:

    Intel Atom processor @ 1.6GHz,
    1GB of DDR2 @ 667MHz (4-4-4-12)
    80GB WesternDigital SATA2 HDD
    Creative 24x CD-RW
    Intel 945 chipset

    The CD launches to the menu where I can pick Try it, Install, Memtest, all that good stuff. Memtest runs fine, no errors detected.

    When I pick either the Install or Try it options, it begins to load up and then crashes into BusyBox with the following error:

    Code:
    udevd-event(1397]: run_programs: '/sbin/modprobe' abnormal exit
    followed by the typical arrangment of BusyBox mysticism.

    Anyone have any ideas? Is this a hardware issue? I understand the Atom is a pretty new processor but it is x86 so I am at a loss as to what is going on.

    I am pretty sure the CD isn't defective either because I have used it several times on other machines, and this is one I had shipped to me. Didn't burn it myself.

    One last thing, doing "Check CD for Defects" gives the same final result as well...

    Re: BusyBox during LiveCD bootup

    I have the same problem. I downloaded ubuntu-8.04.1-desktop-i386.iso. I double checked the image's MD5 checksum. And also I checked the MD5 checksums of all files on the CD (using included md5sum.txt) before the burn (I unpacked the iso) and after.
    Still it shows up damn BusyBox terminal whatever I choose in the boot menu. But it seems that I still able to install it through wubi, but that is not the solution, I need clean install.
    And the wierdest thing is that no matter that the CD image and all included files DOES pass the MD5 check, when I run "Check CD integrity" from boot menu it shows up that I have 19 corrupted files (first it shows up BusyBox and when I type exit it performs the actual check).

    If anyone has a solution to this wierd problem, please share.

    2.2GHz AMD64 3200+
    Two DDR2 (one - 1024MB, another - 256MB, operating on same frequences)
    320GB Seagate SATA Drive
    80GB Seagate IDE Drive
    DVD+RW IDE Nec DVD-ROM
    nVidia chipset

    P.S. Sorry for my bad english.

    Makes sense, since I was using an 8.04 distribution and not a 8.04.1.

    I will edit this reply if the solution works for me. As for the guy above, I dunno if this will help him out or not, but you should give it a shot too bud.
