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