Issue#2273: Linux - Can't install Ubuntu 15.10

  • I attempted to install an OTA upgrade from 15.04 to 15.10. It failed and for some reason I lost my wifi connection with 15.04 (after the upgrade was rejected it reverted back to the previous install) I had a previous downloaded full version of 15.10 on DVD so I attempted a clean install The DVD won't boot. I had a previous 14.04 DVD and after connecting with an ethernet cable I have installed 14.04, it works fine but I can't upgrade. I purchased Ubuntu User magazine with a new 15.10 DVD and attempted a fresh install. It won't boot on the 64-bit side and goes into error's on the 32-bit side. I have taken a photo of the screen where the install stops hoping someone can decipher what is going wrong. If it's a hardware problem why does 14.04 install and run OK? If it's software where do I start to look? (rootkit?)

  • Issue#15345: Ubuntu - Cant run sudo or get root access on fresh install of ANY linux distro, pw wrong!

    Hi, Ive seen this issue all over the net, with convoluted or few unclear solutions. After a fresh successful install of ubuntu (currently running now within virtualbox), mint, or kali linux, cant run sudo or get root access like to change a password or system settings, or run sudo commands. I know my user, passw I created in installation wizard were 'dev1' and 'easy' I did all the install steps carefully. However no matter what I do the password came up as incorrect. I try switching users and get locked out, the only way into the admin account is through a system restart. This is super frustrating Ive spent hours upon hours trying to figure this out just being pi$$ed off. I cant set a new password because the original I made wont work, and I get denied from any settings changes, even though my account is admin. Any solutions would be great, seeing as all my dev work is at a standstill. Sigh

  • Issue#52347: Linux - [Install] Freezing issues with Ubuntu install

    I've been trying to install some, any, consumer version of linux for months now. My first choice was Ubuntu, then to fedora, then OpenSUSE, then to Arch. No linux distribution would install to my system except for Arch via CD in Legacy mode using GPT and then switching to UEFI after I finished the installation. My hope is to just get Ubuntu installed and move on with life. My issue is that whatever I do, Ubuntu installer either does not load, freezes on the splash/loading screen, or freezes at some point during the account/locality selection process but never making it to the actual install process. I've used 4 flash drives, 3 different USB installers(LiveUSB & Yumi from pendrivelinux, Rufus), bricked 3 of those drives and an SSD, and UEFI won't let me boot from DVD to install Ubuntu. Can anybody provide some insight on why Ubuntu 15.10 or 14.4 are constantly freezing on both Legacy and UEFI motherboard settings? Why did Arch install with no issues? My PC specs are as follows:

  • Issue#126733: [ubuntu] Ubuntu - Windows 10 Dual Boot Install Issue

    Hey guys, I did a quick search and couldn't find anything that was particularly specific to my issue. I am trying to install Ubuntu on the save drive as Windows 10, but once I get to the "download updates while installing" screen before actually installing, then hit continue I am getting this error: "Force UEFI Installation? This machines firmware has started this installer in UEFI mode but it looks like there maybe existing operating systems already installed using BIOS compatibility mode. If you continue to install Debian in UEFI mode, it might be difficult to reboot into any BIOS-mode operating system." I poked around in my BIOS and tried disabling fast boot, disabling Compatibility (CSM) and I'm still managing to get the same error. When I look in my boot options there is only one option for the USB drive and it is UEFI. My motherboard is a ASUS ROG Maximus VII Hero, do you guys have any suggestions?

  • Issue#128217: [ubuntu] MSI GP62 2QE Leopard Pro - Unable to install any Ubuntu/Linux distribution at all

    Hi Guys, The specs for this laptop are ( the ones that I think that matter ): 5th Generation Intel® Core™ i7 Processor ( Intel I7 5700 HQ ) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M 2GB DDR3 VRAM I recently bought this new computer and I'm struggling very hard to install any Ubuntu/Linux on it. So far, this is what I've tried without success: - Even though I'm not a big fan of them, I've tried to use virtual machine software: Virtual Box and VMWare. I've used several distributions on them ( Ubuntu 15.10, 14.04 LTS, 14.10, 15.04, etc.. 64 bits ) and I always end obtaining the famous blue screen ( you know, the blue windows "death screen" ). Checking the forums, I found that perhaps it was an issue related with the BIOS so I modified the BIOS to enable the Virtualization options: nothing changed. If it's useful, I'm running these apps in Windows 10 ( not original :P ). - Tried installing Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, 14.10, 15.04, 15.10, Linux Mint 17 ( cinnamon ), Linux Mint 17 ( KDE ) in native

  • Issue#129301: Ubuntu - Mount issue when trying to make Windows7 install usb

    Hello, I have to reinstall Windows, which obviously is the easy part, because I am stuck on creating a bootable usb installer. Until today using 'dd' always worked for me. Code: dd if=<iso> of=<disk> oflag=direct bs=1048576 Today, however it didn't work, the PC was stuck on blinking _ after BIOS and no booting at all, no errors as well. So I figured to try something else and WinUSB was the first thing to come out of google.

  • Issue#155776: [ubuntu] Having an issue with a USB install on a new Windows computer

    I recently purchased a new HP laptop, running Windows 10. I have a USB drive of Ubuntu 15.10 64 bit. I am having some issues with this though. I set the computer to boot from USB first. Once it gets to the GRUB menu, if I tell it to try without installing, it will often go to a blank screen and just sit there. If I hit C first, then ESC, then try without installing, it seems to work. I am able to use the computer from that point, on the live USB. But once I tell it to install Ubuntu (I intend to dual boot), I proceed to the window with the "download updates, third party software" and hit continue, I then get a blank screen. I'm a bit baffled as to why it is doing this. The USB drive was a good working unit before I tried it in this computer. I have since used Pendrivelinux a few times to verify the install, and I ran an MD5 comparison to check the ISO file. What is the next step to resolve this? Computer is a new HP Pavilion 17 touchscreen.
