View Full Version : [SOLVED] Starts installing and then stops after logo shows up

December 28th, 2009, 07:25 AM
Ok, so after a ton of mistakes(on my part not xubuntu's) and about five wasted CDs, I have managed to get the xubuntu installer correctly burned on to disk from my intel snow leapord, so I can install it on my old Dell latitude c600 computer that used to run mandrake 7, but two days ago I installed windows xp home edition on so that I could esily install xubuntu, I still don't quite understand the process, so I'm not sure if that was nessesary or not. I can not connect to the Internet on the Dell. So when i put the disk with the lts version of xubuntu as I figured that that would work better than 9.10 on an older computer, the normal xubuntu screen appears and I hit the button for the full installation and the computer restarts like it's supposted to, and correctly boots from the disk. I choose English as my language, and I then choose install. The xubuntu logo appears as well as the loading bar. It goes back and forth for about 1 length of the bar, and then it stops, and I'm forced to turn off the computer by holding down the power button. I also tried this with ubuntu 9.10, and It boots from the cd, but freezes up when I select install. Any help? Thanks!

I'm not sure of this helps, but when I try to install xubuntu as a second os to see if that would work, an error message comes up saying that I only have 255 megabytes of
memory, and that it needs 256, and if I hit continue, it says that I only have 3000 or so mb of space and that it needs 5000 or so, even though I have a second drive that adds an extra 3 gigabytes. Does this help at all? Thanks again

Anyone? I really need help, as my version of windows needs to be registered and it can't be anymore, so I've only got 28 days left.

Never mind, it didn't freeze at all, it was simply extremly slow. Sorry for any trouble!
