    Problems installing 10.10 on netbook

    So I tried to install ubuntu 10.10 netbook edition an my toshiba nb200 and after the first reboot more or less something like this appeared

    Code:
    modprobe: FATAL: could not load /lib/module/2.6.35-22-generic/ modules dep: no such file or directory
    
    modprobe: FATAL: could not load /lib/module/2.6.35-22-generic/ modules dep: no such file or directory
    
    gave up on waiting for root directory. common problems:
    -boot args (cat/proc/cmd line)
    -check rootdealy=(did the system wait long enough?)
    -check root=(did the system wait for the right device?)
    -missing modules (cat/proc/modules, ls/dev)
    
    ALERT! /dev/disk/by-uuid/f786c992-1803-4d1c-b35c-acd1057df7ab does not exist.
    
    Dropping to a shell!
    
    BusyBox v1.15.3(ubuntu 1.1.15.3-1ubuntu5)buil-in shell(ash)
    Eneter 'Help' for a list of built-in commands)
    
    (initramfs)_

    Were these messages received when you were trying to reboot with the pendrive plugged in or out?

    Re: Problems installing 10.10 on netbook

    luismgl, this may not be related to your case, I had a problem installing 10.10 for netbooks. I used Unetbootin as described on ubuntu.com site. I can't recall now exactly whether I was dropped to BusyBox like yourself or whether I had a kernel panic.
    I my particular case, the was no initrd.gz image in the /boot folder. Whether Unetbootin is a culprit or Ubuntu installer, I don't know. One thing I know is that this error happened when the disk I was installing 10.10 to had other partitions. Once I wiped the disk clean and install 10.10 by default to the whole partition the predicament vanished.
    Is the ramdisk initrd.img-2.6.35-22-generic in the /boot directory of the newly installed 10.10?

    Re: Problems installing 10.10 on netbook

    its a fresh format and I'm using the full partition. to make my flash drive bootable I used Universal-USB-Installer-1.8.0.8 -> http://www.pendrivelinux.com/univers...easy-as-1-2-3/

    I've tried 3x formatting and 2 different pens. all with different outcomes (the other 2 formates it froze somewhere in the system install part)

    @ Abir valg I've tried unetbootin once, I'm now giving it another try. If this doesn't work I dunno what I will do :/
    I know that the other solution would be an external dvd drive, but I don't own one nor I plan to.

    Re: Problems installing 10.10 on netbook

    I believe those first 2 messages you see:

    Code:
    modprobe: FATAL: could not load /lib/module/2.6.35-22-generic/ modules dep: no such file or directory
    are not the problem and can be ignored - I have a working 10.10 machine that started printing that after 10.10 upgrade (but it runs fine). Suspect this will disappear in a few kernel upgrades time (google it).

    Last USB based install I did, I had installation / boot problems (not your one exactly) but my resolution was to use a different USB stick. I still don't know why.

    Re: Problems installing 10.10 on netbook

    thank you for your reply ubansky
    I actually tried 2 different pen drives, and one of them was new, I also tried 2 different software's that are said to work and nothing. Today I tried jolicloud with their own software to make the pen drive bootable and it worked like a charm! In fact I was surprised on how fast the whole process was. So as for now I'm sticking with this one.
