View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing Ubuntu 9.10 i386 on Phenom 9500 + GeForce 8200

March 5th, 2009, 08:49 AM
I'm not sure if it's the AMD Phenom 9500 processor or the motherboard with built-in nVidia graphics, but trying to load the Ubuntu Live CD normally results in a busybox shell. Removing quiet + nosplash, I was able to login, but am unable to find my sata partitions.

Here is an exerpt of what I saw during nosplash...

ata3.00:qc timeout (cmd 0xec)
ata3:00: faild to identify (I/0 error, err_mak=0x4)
ata3: failed to recover some devices, retrying in 5 sec
ata3: sata link up 3.0 Gbps (5(?) status 123 5(?) control 300)

(?)- means I'm not sure what I put on paper here

Is it the CPU and/or motherboard, or should I get my old P4 to run linux? What can I do that will allow linux to be installed on my setup?

Let's wait til 9.04 comes out first.
