[SOLVED] Fresh Install fails with Invalid Partion Table every time
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 18, 2008
I am having problems installing Ubuntu. I recently dropped by Best Buy and purchased the latest copy of Ubuntu. While I know I could have downloaded the software, I wanted to help promote the selling of Linux at a favorite retailer.
After having installed multiple flavors of Linux before I expected to plop my new CD into my drive, nuke all the partitions and load a fresh operating system. The same physical hardware had previously had multiple flavors of Suse and Mandrake and should easily run Ubuntu.
Ubuntu does boot into the installation and installs. Upon performing the initial boot, the system dies with a "Invalid Partition Table" message. It does this if I use all the default or attempt to manually partition the drives.
I suspect the problem might be related to how Ubuntu sees the hard drives. My system has two controllers holding a total of 4 IDE chains. I have a single IDE drive which I plan on hosting the OS. A Promise Ultra 133TX2 holds four 300 GB ID
[SOLVED] Fresh install 64 14.1 with GPT without EFI in a BIOS motherboard
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 11, 2013
I partitioned my disk with GPT to be able to play with some alternative operating systems in my spare time, or just if I want to check something in the web with the fastest distro I can find. This way I'm not confined to three OSes.
The problem now resides in the booting process. Lilo (my favorite) doesn't work with GPT, GRUB legacy doesn't either.
Tried elilo, but it complains that there isn't an /efi partition at the beginning of the disk. GRUB 2 also returns an error. I couldn't also install syslinux, although it would be a first one for me with this boot manager.
So, my question: Do I need to create a /efi partition somehow (what size? 2MB?) or can I use elilo or grub to boot from the GPT partitions? If so, how to do it?
[SOLVED] Fresh Install with Grub error 17
- date: January 8, 2009
I've been using Ubuntu for a couple years now, thought I knew what I was doing - just bought a nice big HD, planned to use it as a media storage drive, and re-format/re-install Ubuntu on the original drive to clean up all of the dirty, undisciplined "tweaks" i've done over the last year...
So after copying all of my data to the new HD, I installed 8.10 AMD64 and re-booted; oh dear.

JDK Install fails with install.sfx.#### No such file during installation.

Graphics Install fails with a fatal media/hardware error
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 8, 2005
When installing Fedora Core 4 using the graphics installer, I get a "fatal error" while installing various packages. The error states that there is either a media error, no disk space or a hardware error and that install has to terminate. The only option I have is an "OK" to reboot. I am pretty sure disk space is not an issue - I have a 300GB HDD set aside for this. I also tested the DVD, but it passed. The error occurs on different files each time.
Tried to use text install, but it won't go past the disk druid. It has a hard time dealing with LVM.
Where do I look to get details on whats going on. The error message itself is not very useful. I don't have a OS on this machine yet. Any help would be much appreciated.

[SOLVED] Automating USB drive configuration of partion table, partition and file system
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 26, 2011
I have tried to automate the configuration of a usb drive with not much success.
The problem that I have is that I have a large amount of usb drives that have a partition table of type "loop" and I need to change them to "msdos". The size of the drives vary and I need to use FAT32 or FAT16 file system.
I've tried various partitioning commands and gui applications but cant find one that I can give a one line command to to set the partition table, maximum partition size and file system.
Any help much appreciated.
[SOLVED] Fresh install of slackware 14.1 and cannot install mayan boot splash
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 24, 2013
Okay, this isn't really a problem, but I did a fresh install of 14.1 beta and cannot install the mayan bootsplash from 14.0. Will 14.1 have it's own custom boot splash?
I'm just curious.
Server fresh install issue with netmask

Hi guys, I have been left bamboozled at the datacentre today after moving my server from my office network.
I followed the typical instructions to switch from dhcp to static IP by editing the /etc/network/interfaces, changing the dhcp to static and making sure that the information was correct ie:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
# The primary network interface
iface eth0 inet static

I restarted networking and tried to ping Google - nothing. looking at the output of ifconfig I am getting netmask of 255.255.255.255. Both myself and one of the guys at the DC have tried a number of ways to correct this but cannot
