View Full Version : [SOLVED] Fresh Karmic install drops to CLI after completion

December 29th, 2009, 06:06 AM
Just installed a fresh Karmic install using AMD64 regular CD (from USB). First ran it live from USB... worked great, even with persistence. Then rebooted from USB and chose install. Installation went off without a hitch. Upon completion, I reboot and it stops at a CLI login. No errors. Just a CLI login as if I installed CLI only.

Maybe the problem had something to do with the Ubuntu persistent state on the USB. I don't know, but I reinstalled using the Karmic install CD this time (not a USB Flash version) and it installed fine.
