    Ubuntu Live wont run

    OK, so my PC machine, I think the hard drive died. I wanted to make sure the bsod's weren't from a bad vid card. So I have a couple of live CDs--an old Ubu and a Puppy- both about 8 years old

    So I tried the Ubu first and then the Puppy 2nd and this is the image I get: It's hung up on "disconnecting USB' and it increments up higher and higher



    So, I;m thinking this is because I had an old Ubu and Puppy, but aftter downloading the latest and greatest, I still get this
    same image. Now, if I hit escape, I can get to this image:




    So after awhile, it returns to the "USB DISCONNECT" garbage that goes on and on and on.

    So anybody have a comment on whats going on?

    thanks
    Yeah blah, blah, blah....

    Re: Ubuntu Live wont run

    What brand/model system?
    What video card/chip?
    Do you have other USB cards plugged in? That may be causing issues.

    It also says you have unclean Windows partition. That may be from hibernation flag is still set usually from fast start up if Windows 8 or 10, or it needs chkdsk using your Windows repair disk.
    Fast Start up off (always on hibernation), note that Windows turns this back on with updates

    Thanks for answering!!

    system is just a clone with an ASUS motherboard- Win 7 Pro 32 bit with 2 gig RAM. Vid card is a low end ZOLTAC.

    Yes, there is a USB wireless NIC--it is my internet connection

    Yeah, I did notice that windows partition message. But the HD is 9 years old, so it was expected. The reason I ran the live CD was to verify the vid card was still good-its
    only 6 months old

    Looking at the log output from Ubu, it correctly identified the manufacturer, but I would think it Ubu should be able to handle a wireless NIC

    I appreciate your time

    regards
    Yeah blah, blah, blah....

    I can move thread to Networking & Wireless sub-forum.
