    "Insert disc Uu-Server 9.10 _KK_ in the drive '/cdrom/'"

    I am trying to install Ubuntu Server 9.10 on a Dell Poweredge SC420. However when I configure LVM on the hard drives I end up in a loop with the following error:
    Code:
    [!!]Install the base system
    Please insert the disc labeled: 'Ubuntu-Server 9.10 _Karmic Koala_ - Release i386 (20091027.2)' in the drive '/cdrom'/ and press enter.
    
    Media change
    I have tried umount'ing /cdrom and remounting at: /cdrom /mnt/cdrom /target/cdrom and /target/mnt/cdrom all with no luck, any ideas?

    I had the same problem. I had an IDE CD/DVD drive and when I swithced to a SATA CD/DVD drive everything worked fine. I also read in the above link from OctanZ that some people have had success with a USB installation. The problem is with some IDE drives or drivers.

    I have the same problem with Ubuntu-Server 9.10 - AMD64. My IDE DVD was connected as "Cable Select". When I changed it to "Slave", the problem desapears.

    Good luck!

    Do you mean the jumper settings on the IDE DVD Raycho?

    Yes, but it doesn't work every time. May be there is something else. I succeeded once but subsequent tries was unsuccessful. I'm still looking for solution.

    Cool Re: "Insert disc Uu-Server 9.10 _KK_ in the drive '/cdrom/'"

    I'm having the same issue with a clean install of 9.10 alternate amd64. CD ISO MD5 ok, verified burn, 'check disc for defects' also ok. Definitely seems to be a media or drive issue, I'm wondering if the installer changes how the drive is accessed?

    Sounds like the next step is to dig up a different CD/DVD drive, but that seems like a dumb solution, since this machine was able to install 8.10 alternate amd64... Also, the drive is really hard to remove

    Re: "Insert disc Uu-Server 9.10 _KK_ in the drive '/cdrom/'"

    Well, a different CD-RW drive solved it for me. Still, seems like a bug that a known good DVD-RW drive that burned a good CD (since it worked fine on the other drive) can't install from it...

    Re: "Insert disc Uu-Server 9.10 _KK_ in the drive '/cdrom/'"

    I just got past this by going into my BIOS and setting my SATA devices to use AHCI instead of ATA. Now the Ubuntu 9.10 amd64 server disc gets past that point and continues like it should.

    Did this on a Dell Precision T3400. Hope that helps.
