View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu 8.10 install

I'm new and trying Ubuntu for the first time and hit a problem. Here is what I've done so far.

Ok so I downloaded and burned Ubuntu 8.10. Then I put it in my computer and installed from inside Windows. Then when I try to reboot and run Ubuntu it shows these 3 lines of code and fails.

[ 0.362333] ACPI: Aborted because invalid compressed format (err=1)
[ 1.857728] invalid compressed format (err=1)
[ 1.907427] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: Unable to mount root fs on unknown-block(8,1)

I'm not sure where I went wrong, but i would really appreciate help to get this running.

I think u r using wrong compressed format. I recommend u to use NTFS instead FAT32 to install this OS from inside Win
Few days ago, I also installed this OS from inside Win but got no errors like u, it's working perfectly except two things: unable to mount one of my drives and the volume of sound is not as loud as Win
