View Full Version : [ubuntu] can not install ubuntu on my notebook (sony vgn 365E)

I want to install ubuntu 8.04 but I failed. It stopped at the partition just after test the keyboard.
The problem may be I first choose to install ubuntu under windows and I can not uninstall it (the uninstall.exe does not response to my click). Then, I format the disk when I installed ubuntu and tried completely install. I do not know why it stop at partition step. Can you tell me how to fix it?
Thank you

NO one reply
I am thinking about why this happens.
Since it stops at "partman" , I believe the installation under windows should have written sth into somewhere,which can not be cleared under windows. (I restore windows to the checkpoint before installation and I also clear mbr by fixmbr). But it still failed at partman. I pressed Ctr+Alt+F2 and try to write log but it ouputed no such command.
I am really curious about how ubuntu writes and reads disk index table.
Thank you

It would help if you provide some useful info so that you can be helped such as RAM but someone will come thru with a solution. you could add noacpi to the end of the boot options when booting the livecd, I believe it's F6 key when starting the disc.

Thank you for your reply.
I added acpi=off but I have not tried noacpi.

By the way, how to provide some useful information.How to get out of the log ? Where is the log stored when installed with livecd?
Thank you
