View Full Version : [ubuntu] LiveUSB cannot boot on gigabyte motherhoard

November 8th, 2018, 09:09 PM
Hello, downloaded recent LTS Ubuntu and created a live USB by using Universal-USB-Installer-

Trying to install it on GA-945GCM-S2C motherboard with E2220 CPU, but no go. After selecting USB-HDD as bootable device i got stuck on a screen with Tables "Listing PCI Devices", above that tables i can see that system detected USB drive too.
I checked BIOS settings and enabled/Disabled everything related to the matter. As a side note: i dont have "quick boot" option, nor UEFI as those are common blockers.

What I've tested so far:
1. This particular Ubuntu USB on other PCs = works
2. Windows USB on this PC = works
3. PCIe USB expansion card to plug in USB there = not working
4. Use live USB on all USB ports, including front panel = not working
5. Install Windows XP to see if everything operational = works

I've read somewhere about problems, when ubuntu block usb driver or something, but ran out of ideas how to install OS on that machine.
Any ideas?

P.s. no, i don't have DVD drive to read or write disks.

The configuration is pretty old.


I will suggest to use alternate image to boot the system and XFCE or LXDE Desktop environment during the installation.

Installed ubuntu on other PC and simply plugged in that HDD to problematic machine.
