    Re: groovy gorrila installer crashes

    If one were to choose safe mode at 1st dialog then likely the boot up would proceed as expected

    Good idea, but no, it does not help me in this case. Please try in your computer with the current Groovy Gorilla.

    Tested installation in VirtualBox of Ubuntu desktop amd64 version 20200707.1 in both BIOS and EFI mode. Both worked OK.

    I have a set of computers of different age and quality (generation 2,3,4 Intel i3, i5 and i7 CPUs). Some of them are enterprise class laptops, but they are getting old . The newest computer, that I have access to is a consumer class Lenovo laptop with generation 7 Intel i5.

    None of these computers boots from a USB drive cloned from a current groovy iso file. But I have VirtualBox in a Dell Precision M4800, and it boots and works well in a virtual machine where it is booted directly from the iso file seen as a virtual optical drive.

    So I would really want to know how you manage to install Ubuntu Groovy. It is an installed system that works well. How did you install it?

    - Did you use the current groovy iso file?
    - What computer is it?
    - How did you create the boot drive: Boot medium, method/tool to make it bootable?
    - Did you use some special boot options or tweaks?

    Yes, it works in VirtualBox for me too. Please try to boot from a USB drive.

    Tested in BIOS mode on a computer with Nvidia GPU. Doesn't work. get an error message about /DEV/SR0 No media found.
    Will test on another computer in EFI mode.

    Doesn't work in EFI mode either. Error message "Unable to find a medium container a live file system"

    The USB is made with mkusb, will make a copy with DD and try again.

    Doesn't work. Same problem doesn't find the iso.

    Re: groovy gorrila installer crashes

    It seems that most computers fail to boot USB drives made from these groovy iso files. But there are computers that can boot too. I know one case, a very new computer with a generation 10 Intel CPU.

    I expect that the developers at Canonical will squash this bug, because a large part of the users have older computers (than those with generation 10 Intel CPU). I think all computers with Intel i3, i5 and i7 should work with Ubuntu or at least with the light-weight community flavours. I think also core2duo computers (and computers with AMD CPUs of similar specs) should be able to boot and run Ubuntu family flavours.
