I can try ubuntu 10.10 from USB, but if I try to install it, it just stops after asking if I want to install third-party software. I have Fujitsu Siemens lifebook computer with Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU T5500 @ 1,66GHz and 504 MB of RAM. What could it be?

Starting installation also looks different from guide. there are only language options and "You may wish to read the release notes" but there aren't these two pictures and choice between trying and installing. Last thing I see is the window called "Preparing to install Ubuntu"

Was the iso file you used to make the USB a good one and not corrupt? Check the md5sum of the file and check it with the published checksum to be sure.

This can be caused by all the partitions already being taken.

To find out if this is the case, please do this:

Please boot off the LiveCD/LiveUSB, select 'TRY', and then:

Follow the instruction on the website and post the results here.

Please press the '#' button when posting and place the the script results between the two 'CODE' tags.

I am not sure what to write in the terminal for md5sum.

mina123,

First thing (and I am sorry I did not notice it sooner) is that you do not have enough RAM to run Ubuntu. You have 504 meg, and Ubuntu needs 512 meg minimum with a preferred level of 1 gig for good performance.

If you were to load the lighter version Lbuntu that might work on your PC.

Second Thing Your partition setup is a little odd. You may be force to manually create the partitions for the Lbuntu install.

You current partition layout is:

/dev/sda1 NTFS Windows XP 'C:' drive
/dev/sda2 extended partition where /dev/sda5 lives
__dev/sda5 NTFS Windows 'D:' drive

To prepare the disk for Lbuntu, please do this (after you have tested the 'try' option in Lbuntu really works):

1) Please defrag the 'D:' drive twice using XP (D: = /dev/sda5)
2) Boot from the Live CD, and resize the /dev/sda5 drive to be 15 gigs smaller using gparted
3) Using gparted, create a /dev/sda6 logical partition that is 14.4 gigs, file type: ext4.
4) Using gparted, create a /dev/sda7 logical partition that is the rest of the space (about 600 megs), partition type: 'swap'

The new layout would look like this:

/dev/sda1 NTFS Windows XP 'C:' drive
/dev/sda2 extended partition where /dev/sda5 lives
__dev/sda5 NTFS Windows 'D:' drive
__dev/sda6 ext4 Ubuntu partition
__dev/sda7 Swap

The select the 'manual partition' option during the Lbuntu install, and make 'dev/sda6' your '/' (root) partition. Please install the boot loader on '/dev/sda' (not sda1 or sda6, just /dev/sda)

just one more thing, my gparted does not start. What are the admin (root) username and password for trial?

April 13th, 2011, 08:24 PM
Most of the trial versions have no password, but I think that few that do use 'ubuntu' or 'trial'.

It seems that my trial has not rights for changing drives. It says that I am not root.(gparted)
