View Full Version : install failure 18.4

May 27th, 2018, 02:40 AM
on HP pavilion media centre m8175a PC which had had flat battery, faulty ram, and been unused for some time.When installation disc is inserted and the installation starts a full screen of repeated line shows for a brief time saying "cache error" then carries on installing usually without any pauses for input of language, location, and other variables. Some occasions it will show a language selection screen. Installation presumably concludes and a green with grey lower border screen appears, this is the only indication other than the DVD drive working that anything has taken place. pressing control, alt, delete brings up a terminal screen saying,"Ubuntu 18.4 LTS Ubuntu tty2" second line "Ubuntu login"
What do you think?
