View Full Version : [ubuntu] installatiion - toshiba netbook nb505

February 22nd, 2011, 10:40 PM
Tried loading 10.04 from a disk I had used for installation on previous acer laptop using an external dvd-cd reader. Nada! Toshiba will not read it whether tried normally or on booting. Then tried download from wubi on several occasions and different ways. It seems Toshiba iso does not work. Am I paranoid or has Toshiba/Windows contrived to make changeover impossible? Suggestions?

If you're using wubi.exe from http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/ there's a bug (https://bugs.launchpad.net/wubi/+bug/722955) and it won't work.
If you're running wubi from an Ubuntu dvd image it won't work either.

If not, then post the log file found in the %temp% directory.
