View Full Version : [ubuntu] Install hangs at battery check

January 14th, 2011, 07:08 PM
Hi all!

I'm trying to install 10.10 to my very old 1GHhz Athlon based desktop machine, but when I boot with the CD in the drive, the machine just hangs at the 1st screen.

Pressing Esc during boot to see what is going on, I find that the boot always gets as far as:
"Checking battery status..."

As a desktop machine, it doesn't even have a battery. Is there anything I can do about this? Can I disable this check?

The CD worked fine in a work machine (and quite nice it looked too btw!)

Many thanks guys
