View Full Version : [ubuntu] Doesn't react when hitting Enter to boot from CD

April 8th, 2009, 08:00 PM
When I boot Ubuntu 9.04, or a distribution based on Ubuntu 8.10, I get to the boot menu with the options to:
Boot from LiveCD
Check CD for defects
Test memory
Boot from first hard disk

everything works except that, when I navigate to the boot from LiveCD option, it doesn't react when I click enter or anything!

This has happened when I booted it from CD, and also when I ran it in VirtualBOX in Windows and Ubuntu.

Not any signs of life on the CD drive?

On my systems it sometimes takes a little while for some sign to show on the screen, usually in under a minute.

oh no, its alive and all,
it reacts to EVERY command, other than hitting the enter button, when I have navigated to 'Run LiveCD'

oh, I have just noticed that a countdown appears, that I guess would boot it from CD if nothing happens, but it doesn't. It gets to 0 seconds and stays still
