View Full Version : [ubuntu] Problem installing/running live cd on Inspiron 530

September 28th, 2008, 12:09 AM
I am trying to install 8.04 on Inspiron 530 with E6550 processor.
I can't even run the live cd. Tons of errors and tells me for instance HARDWARE ERROR CPU 0: Machine check exception and later the same for CPU 1 repeats: This is not a software error for various things.
Finally it says Kernel Panic - not syncing: Machine check and seems to do off into oblivion and do nothing.
I have run all the system diagnostics on the Dell disk and the programs run fine and all the diagnostics pass. I used this same cd to install on another pc with a Q6600 a month or so ago with no problems.
I tried the live cd on the other other just now and it runs fine from the cd so the disc is definitely not the problem.
