View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't Install Ubuntu

September 3rd, 2008, 01:37 AM
Ok so I have Windows Vista on a new Dell PC. I installed Ubuntu using Virtual Box and it installed just fine and runs fine. So now I want to duel boot it. So I went into Disk Management and I now have a 10gig unallocated space for Ubuntu to install. I burned the iso to cd. The pc boots to the cd fine. I choose Install. The screen then goes to a console type looking screen that says BusyBox V1.1.3 (debian) Built-in shell blah blah blah... and seems to be slowly counting up. I let it run for over an hour and nothing new loads.

Why would it work fine on Virtual Box and not even start the install on my actual pc??? PLEASE HELP! :)

what version of ubuntu are you trying to install? What are your system specs? AMD or Intel, 32 bit or 64 bit, how much memory?
