View Full Version : [SOLVED] Adding Boot parameters installing Lucid from Live CD

August 4th, 2010, 05:40 PM

Silly Question probably - I have a Philips Freevents laptop and am trying to install Lucid. There is a problem with this laptop whereby apparently I need to add "reserve=0xffb00000,0x100000" as a boot parameter when installing - see [URL="http://www.fitzenreiter.de/averatec/index-e.htm"]

Can I add this when installing from the live CD or do I perhaps need the Alternate CD? (I need to get this right as this laptop is the only machine I have internet access with at the moment so don't want to **** it up). I'm currently running Hardy and would like to upgrade.

Thanks in advance/...

You can add it when you boot the livecd - press any key at the livecd boot to get access to the menu.

Once installed you can add it to grub the first time you boot


Then when you have booted, add it to so it is a normal addition to grub, add it to this line of the file



Put this for anyone who might happen along - unless the thread is marked solved by accident
