View Full Version : [ubuntu] 16.04 to 18.04 Desktop Fails, Server Seems to Work

January 21st, 2019, 11:08 PM
I've been running Desktop Version 16.04 on a HP Pavilion dv7-1183 laptop for some time. I want to upgrade to 18.04 Desktop. To check for compatibility I wanted to use the "Try Ubuntu" option prior to the install. The Desktop install routine stops before getting to the "Try vs. Install" menu. The last lines in the scrolling startup log are:
+ Microsoft Nano Transeiver - V1.0 on usb-0000.001d3- 1/input2
+ 21.390789 Random: CRNG-INIT Done

Out of curiosity, I tried installing Server Version 18.04. It ran up to to the point of language selection with no problems. I cancelled the installation at that point. I assume that getting to language selection means that the install will proceed to completion.

Can someone help me get V 18.04 to install? If I can't get Desktop V 18.04 to install, are there important issues with running 2 PcS with Ubuntu Server on the same local network? (I have a 18.04 Server already installed)

Thanks, in advance.
