View Full Version : [ubuntu] 10.04 live cd "unrecoverable error"

"The installer has encountered an unrecoverable error. A desktop session will now begin so you can investigate the problem or try installing again"

It didn't get as far as giving me the option to check cd disc for defects, try without installing etc.

9.04 and 9.10 installed fine on my two hard drives, so presumably this is not a hardware problem. During a desktop session I noticed a prompt to install proprietary drivers (graphics?). Could this be the problem? I don't have anywhere near the knowledge to 'investigate the problem'. Could the live cd be defective? Thanks for any help

...did the 'try without installing' worked? if it booted in, you can start your investigation from there.
