View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installing 10.04 from disc gives initramfs error

August 9th, 2011, 07:26 PM
Dell Dimension 4300, trying to install a 10.04 disc from boot. The Ubuntu logo comes up, the bar dances for a bit and it goes black and white with

"BusyBox v1.15.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.15.3-1ubuntu5) built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system."

I have two drives on my system and it does this for both. I run XP, put the Ubuntu disc in and run the 'reboot then install' button, every step of which works fine up until the above error. Don't know what to do next. Any thoughts?
