View Full Version : [ubuntu] won't boot from disc.

March 10th, 2010, 03:12 AM
I've tried to install 9.10 on my PowerBook G3, with both a CD and DVD. However, the system shows a folder with a question mark and boots into the default OS 8.6. I even tried with an older ubuntu disc (8 point something) that had worked on another computer, but this didn't work either. I know the computer can boot from the CD drive, as it works with my OS X 10.4 DVD. What's the problem?

Make sure that you are booting using a PowerPC architectured CD.

You should download the Desktop CD from the powerpc downloads page, which is located here (http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ports/releases/9.10/release/).
