  1. Clevo LCD PC All-In-One, P4 2.66Ghz / 765Mb RAM for sale.

    Used this system on Ubuntu for years, finally time to move on.

    Fun project for someone and a nice (albeit dated looking) bit of kit when you're done.

  2. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    I've concluded that the hard drive is faulty after running more tests.

    I'm gutted, really wanted to give Ubuntu another shot. Don't much fancy partitioning this again though...

    Shame. Thanks...
  3. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    Found it, its constantly saying "New high speed usb device using ehci_hcd and address **" - looks like its trying time and time again to process it.
  4. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    I can hear the CD whir and think about it when I plug the HD in... How do I do that thing in terminal where I see the log? (Recent devices etc)
  5. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    USB connected hard drive isn't showing up in the LiveCD... Hard drive shows up fine when hard-installed in a laptop, plugged in via USB when XP is running and plugged in via. USB when alternate CD is...
  6. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    Last resort. I'm plugging the hard drive into this computer via. USB, and booting the 7.04 Live CD, and trying to install from there.

    I'm pretty sure I've had 7.04 on this hard drive before, maybe...
  7. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    Also is it unusual that when my installation fails, around 60-80% through the base installation, when I boot into Slitaz and mount the hard drive, there are no files on it? And there's only 256MB...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    RAM doesn't concern me at all. I'm happy for the system to be slow, I just want it up and running. It's easier to strip down than it is to build up.

    Is it possible for a hard drive to pass fsck...
  9. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    If I'm not mistaken, I need a functional Linux system and a fresh hard drive for this method? I couldn't do it from XP?

    I don't have a computer running Linux currently.
  10. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    Update: DSL installed and running fine. Hard drive FSCK'd and passed.

    DSL is excruciating in terms of drivers (wireless, video, everything...) - really want to get Ubuntu or at the very least...
  11. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    Right, going to try DSL, if that doesn't work, **** it - I give up.

    Re: Slitaz won't boot

    I've tried changing root=/dev/hda1 to hda, hda0, sda, sdb, sda1, sda2, sdb1, and pretty much anything else you can imagine.

    That seems to solve this problem a lot of the time, but I simply can't...

    Slitaz won't boot

    Brand new fresh installation. Laptop boots, GRUB loads fine, one option:

    Choose this. Laptop displays:

    And hangs.

    Sounds very similar to this problem:...
  14. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    Managed to install Slitaz using a host laptop. Install went smoothly.

    Inserted hard drive into desired laptop, GRUB boots fine, selected Slitaz and I'm stuck at



    Update: Same issue in the...
  15. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    I've ran Windows Diagnostics on it, I'll boot a Ubuntu Live CD and run fsck on it now.



    That is pretty impressive, I'll certainly have a look. Currently I'm playing around with Slitaz, I...
  16. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    Just for argument's sake, I'm going to create a 5.5GB virtual hard drive on this system, with 256MB RAM (less than I've currently been trying to install with), and try and run an installation using...
  17. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    Also, remember I've not been running the installation on the laptop. I've been running it on this system, using the 6GB hard drive plugged in via. USB, and on another more powerful laptop, with the...
  18. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    Its a Pentium 4 with 256MB RAM, I'll give you the full specs later. The computer can support it fine, I've ran full Ubuntu on less. The hardrive fried on it and I found this old 6GB one knocking...
  19. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    Reckon it's time to give up?
  20. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    5.6GB is enough for Xubuntu?

    Also I've tried ext3 filesystem instead of ext4, I figured maybe the old hard drive wasn't up to the new technology - no joy.
  21. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    Xubuntu gets stuck at the kernel installation too. Tried on two separate computers, with three different discs and two different operating systems. (2 Ubuntu discs, 1 Xubuntu disc) - only common...
  22. [xubuntu] CD-Rom does not contain valid "Release" file

    Trying to install Xubuntu using the alternate CD. After the "scanning CD-Rom" phase I'm told the CD doesn't have a valid release file. I got the .iso from the official source, it burned perfectley...
  23. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    It won't install, gets stuck at around 88%, half way through installing the kernel. Can only assume it's because it won't fit on the hard drive, I've had this exact issue with a 6GB hard drive...
  24. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    I'm giving up on the Virtual PC side of things, far too complicated. All these software packages seem perfectly kitted to mount and have full use of an A: drive or D: drive, thought it'd be just as...
  25. [SOLVED] Re: Installing Linux on a hard drive before installing the hard drive..?

    I don't need to boot from USB on the live machine, I just need it to recognize the drive in the installation process. I'm booting from an .iso.

    Everything works fine until chosing where to install...
