View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problems installing Ubuntu 9.04 (Help)

Hi there, some days ago I finally decided to give ubuntu a shot because I was very interested in everything it offers. So I decided to download it an install it as my onely OS. I downloaded it from the official website an burned it into a CD-R. But here comes the problem, every time i run the CD it appears the first menu in which you select the language and then chosse if you want to try it, install it, etc. so i choose langage, choose to install it (or try it, or check if the cd is wreong, anything I press gives me the same result) so it appears a black screen in which after some seconds appears two error codes:

[12.192007]ate3: SRST failed (errno=-16)
[22.204007]ate3: SRST failed (errno=-16)

After that happens the loading image from Ubuntu starts and after some seconds a black screen with both errors appears and in the buttom says:
BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-2 Ubuntu7) built-in shell (ash)

So I could never install it or try it in my computer. I checked if the disck was right on other computers I have at home and it works just fine. Could someone help me out?

My computer has:
Campo Valor
Asus K8V-MX
AMD Sempron, 1600 MHz (8 x 200) 2600+
Campo Valor
nVIDIA GeForce FX 5500

Don't know the cure, but you might try 8.04 or 8.10 instead of 9.04.
