View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installation Error

May 17th, 2008, 06:36 PM
Hi all! When I try to install hardy heron (the same thing happened when I tried to install gutsy a while back) on my desktop using both the live cd and the alternate cds I get errors. I'm going to explain what happens when I try to use the live cd.

so when the cd loads and I tell it that I want to try ubuntu the loading goes. Here is a picture of what i mean:

But then the proper loading stops and I get this error:

I have no idea what this means. In case you need them here are my system specs:
- AMD sempron 2800
- 1.5 gb dual channel ddr ram
- geforce 7600 gs
- 20 gb Hardrive (Master)
- 200 gb Hardrive (Slave)
- a tdk dvd burner (Slave)
- a nec dvd reader (Primary) (which when I'm in windows freezes the computer when I try to use it)

I can give more information if needed/ if you have a hardware identification program you want me to use i can

Edit: I guess I should also say that this computer dualboots windows xp and an old version of xandros linux pro (of which I have lost the cd's for it). XP is on my master hd and xandros is on a secondary partition thats just for linux on my slave. When I boot the computer a xandros screen comes up and asks me if I want to run xandros or windows xp. When I install Ubuntu I plan to have it erase xandros and take it's partition, but so far I haven't been able to even get to a place in the install where that is possible.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks in advance!!!

Dowload Alternate CD from here:
Do md5sum, burn at 4x or less. Do not use CD-RW
