Cannot Install "No root file system defined"
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 20, 2012
I got Ubuntu to run off of my USB drive, but I cannot get it to install onto my hard drive.
The installation guide shows a step where the user gets to choose between "Install Ubuntu alongside Windows", "Replace Windows with Ubuntu", or "Something else".
I don't get that option. Instead I am just pushed into the partition table, except all of the buttons, like "New Partition Table", "New Partition", "Edit Partition", "Delete Partition" are grayed out.
If I try to continue, I get the error "No root file system defined"
I got the same problem with Ubuntu 11.10 and 10.04 LTS.
Another guy posted a video of the same problem on youtube if you want to know what I'm looking at.
Please keep in mind that I'm new to this, and don't really know what I'm doing.
Thanks in advance
No Root file system is defined
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 2, 2011
I have tried to install Ubuntu 11.4 on an external hard drive and it comes up with 'NO ROOT FILE SYSTEM IS DEFINED Please correct this from the partitioning menu.'
How do I do that?
[SOLVED] Dual boot Ubuntu and Win 7. No root file system is defined error
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 8, 2011
I was really looking forward to testing out Ubuntu 10.10, I have absolutely no experience with Linux. I have two internal hard drives, one already has Win 7 installed on one of its partitions.
The other is completely empty and I formatted it to fat32 64k which my friend told me would be better for Ubuntu. In the Ubuntu install menu I chose to manually pick the partition it installed to. From that screen I could easily see which hard drive was the correct one. Underneath that table it asks for the Boot Loader file I think. I tried choosing dev/sdb ATA WDCWD5000AAKS-0 (500.1 GB) and just dev/sdb1, as when I searched for my error it said to make sure the bootloader file is on the hard drive you are installing to.
Both options get the error "No root file system is defined. Please correct this from the partition menu."
I'm not really sure where to go from here. Win 7 is installed on the first hd (dev/sda) and I thought Linux would be fine to install on my other hd
How to burn MacOS .dmg file on a Linux system
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 9, 2009
One of our clients have a dept of graphic designers all on Macs. I was able to rip MacOS 10.5 as a .dmg file a while back before the original disc got lost. Now it resides on our Linux box (Fedora 9)
How to I burn this image onto a DVD so its useable again?
I've read similar post/threads on other sites that advise to convert to .iso format but I've also read the resulting .iso file is substantially larger. MacOS 10.5 is 6.7Gb already as a .dmg file.

How to enable Joliet file system support?
location: linux.com - date: May 13, 2011
Ok, I`m fairly new to linux having been a Windows user for as long as there has been a windows operating system around and DOS before that even. My problem is that like a great many Windows users I have a large collection of burned CD`s & DVD`s that use the Joliet file system. But apparently the distro of Linux I`m using now (Kubuntu 10.10 32 bit) does not have support for reading the Joliet file system enabled by default and I don`t know how to enable it. So here I am asking if anyone knows how to enable it? I`m well aware that I could make an ISO image of the discs in question and then mount them as the various mounting utilities all seem to support reading the Joliet file system, but this isn`t really a viable solution since I have a few hundred discs now in my collection from my pre-Linux days and in terms of disk space this would pretty much fill my entire hard drive and then some if I were to take this approach. What I really need is to just be able to put the disc into
File system root low disk space
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 18, 2009
I just did a dual boot install of win 7 and ubuntu 9.10. My ubuntu install went off without a hitch until I started installing my normal programs. I ran into this error. During install here were my partitions. / 10G /boot 64M and Swap 6G /home for rest of space. When I hit examine it's shown on 2nd screen shot. All help is appreciated. Btw I'm not really liking the fact that I lost my custom login/logout sound ability and I cant switch my login screen to another theme....not liking 9.10 right now.....
File System from the root
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 12, 2013
I used Thunar file system on Linux Mint and one of the features I got used to was the ability to open a File from the root.
In Ubuntu Studio the File Manager does not have that feature.
I tried to learn what File Manger is used in Ubuntu Studio and apparently it is Thunar.
Does anyone know how to open a File from the root using the default File Manager in Ubuntu Studio?
hard drive freshly wiped (no file system) will not pick up UBUNTU
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 28, 2007
I have just wiped out a hard drive (that was fat 32) to a fresh drive (no file system.) My problem is, is getting UBUNTU to pick up on it, format it to linux specs, and use it.
I added it AFTER I installed UBUNTU on it, if this will help (I'm still new to linux, but VERY familiar with windows.)
Nexus 4 file system no longer mounts to Ubuntu 12.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 6, 2013
My Nexus 4 had worked a treat connecting with Ubuntu 12.04 via USB. It's worked flawlessly for months but has just recently broken...
If I plug my phone into either Windows XP or Ubuntu 12.04 the phone shows "Connected as a media device"
My XP Laptop flawlessly auto mounts the phone file system when I connect it via USB cable
My Ubuntu Desktop NO LONGER auto mounts the phone file system when I connect it via USB cable
(Nothing shows under home folder any more - The phone file system *used to* 'pop up' and mount when connected)
Memory sticks still work fine on these Ubuntu USB ports (I have tried two). I have also tried two cables (XP works, Ubuntu does not)
Any help much appreciated,
