Ubuntu USB installer won't boot in HP Ultrabook Folio 9470m
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 18, 2013
I have Windows 7 Home Premium (Version 6.1 Build 7601: Service Pack 1) installed in my laptop and I am trying to install Ubuntu alongside Windows. I have reserved a 60 GB hard drive partition for Ubuntu using Windows's own partitioning tool. The device manager says I have i5-3427U processors and I checked from the Intel's webpages that these processors are 64-bit. Therefore I concluded that I should install the 64-bit version of Ubuntu.
I created the USB installer according to the instructions given here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...mUSBStickQuick. I checked in BIOS Boot options that the 'USB device boot' box is checked and in the 'Legacy Boot Order' list I moved USB Floppy, USB CD-ROM and USB Hard Drive on top. The computer doesn't recognize the USB installer and always goes on to boot Windows. I also tried checking the boot device options by pressing F9 but no USB devices were listed. I tried the installer in my friends laptop and it worked normally.

Installed ubuntu using ubuntu windows installer (DOESNT BOOT UP)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 4, 2012
I have a similar problem.
Brand new lenovo with windows home premium and I did the ubuntu (windows) install. I think it was wubi. Everything worked fine for a couple of days and I decided to set up a shared directory in ubuntu. It loaded samba for that purpose and said to reboot. I chose reboot but was not around to make it reboot into ubuntu and it came back up in windows instead.
Now when I reboot I get a screen to choose Win7 or ubuntu but ubuntu will not work. I get the purple screen with the dots but it goes no farther. Win7 will boot OK. I loaded some photos in ubuntu that I no longer have access to and really want to copy them to a safe location before I try a fresh install.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
Ubuntu 12.04 wont boot after manual shut down (dual boot with windows, no wubi)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 20, 2012
Hi all. I am new to this forum and an absolute beginner. Since yesterday I have this problem that I cant boot ubuntu anymore. It happened because of a manual shut down after the laptop froze up while performing heavy calculations (runnig a problog program). Please help...
The exact error is in the attached picture. In case it is not readable it states the following:
mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: no such file or directory
mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: no such file or directory
Target filesystem doesnt have requested /sbin/init.
No init found. Try passing init= bootarg.
SOLUTIONS THAT DID NOT WORK (always booted from ubuntu live CD using a bootable USB device)
I allready tried a handfull of solutions that did not work:
- sudo fsck /dev/sda5 => Did not work because it stated that sda 5 was not found. Whenever I try sudo fdisk -l it also only shows sdb1 (which is the USB device used for booting) but not a single partition
Ubuntu 11.10 wont boot at All
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 15, 2011
When I used to use 11.04, I upgraded to the Beta2 version of 11.10 because something went wrong. Then, I did some updates on 11.10 Beta 2, and then it wouldn't boot. It just froze at the Ubuntu Load Up screen (with the 4 dots all the same colour).
I presumed waiting for the full release should just fix it, but it hasn't. It just continually stays on the load up screen, and when I try the recovery mode, I just get a terminal with loads of text in which I can't do anything. Whenever I press a button, it just adds more text (The same text each time)
I've tried installing it 3 times now, and it just wont load. Is there anything I can do to make it work?
When I restart, and enter recovery mode, it comes up with- http://i.imgur.com/JidEi.jpg

HP Elitebook Folio 9470m Hardware Problems
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 18, 2013
I recently got my new ultrabook. It is Windows 7 preinstalled and I decided to install Ubuntu 13.10 with dual-boot. This works rather well, but I have a few small problems, I can't really find a good solution in the internet. The problems I still encounter are mainly hardware problems and that's why I posted it in the Hardware section. The things that don't work correct right now are:
- Not working hardware wireless button
- No multitouch gestures & disabling-feature on the Touchpad
- Bluetooth always turned on at start-up
I hardly have any Linux experience, but I got really much Windows and programming experience. I would really appreciate, when you could give me maybe a simple "type in"-solution, if possible, or more likely a hint or steps towards the solution. Thanks for your help.
Ubuntu and other distros slow or wont boot on Usb drive larger than 4gb
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 26, 2013
Hi, I have been trying several Ubuntu based distros on a Usb with persistent. I tried Ubuntu 12.04 on 16gb Kingston, and it was slow as molasses. I tried Bodhi, and it wouldn't boot or it would be slow on the 16gb drive. When I use a sandisk 4gb, everything was smooth with Bodhi and fast. It seems anything over 4gb just wont work for me. Tried a PNY 16gb, and the same thing. Is this due to fat 32 only recognizing 4gb ? Are larger Usb pen drives flakey when it comes to running distros persistent etc ?
Ubuntu wont boot from usb on hpmini.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 25, 2010
Ive just recently bought a hp-mini 210-2013eo. I wanted to put ubuntu netbook remix on it so i went and downloadeed the iso aswell as the universal usb installer and put it on my usb thumbdrive. I rebooted my laptop and booted from the usb. There is a flashing white text at the top of the screen saying something about linux system, and then the screen goes black with a white blinking marker in the top left corner. Nothing more happens. I tried re-downloading the image and the usb installer. Didnt help. I tried booting the memstick in another computer and it worked like a charm. I downloaded the crunchbang iso, same procedure. Worked well on my other laptop, only a white marker on my mini. I hope someone can help me, because i am at a lost.
Thanks in advance,
CR48 won't boot to Ubuntu 11.04 USB installer
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 6, 2011
I have a CR-48 running Fedora 14. I am trying to install Ubuntu 11.04, but after I follow the instructions on how to make a bootable USB installer from ubuntu.com, insert the flash drive and choose it from the device list, the computer sits at a prompt for a moment, then proceeds to Fedora.
I know it can boot to USB drives; I installed Fedora 14 that way, and I just booted to JoliOS. I've also booted to a SuSE USB before.

Laptop wont boot up the ubuntu install from USB
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 21, 2011
I recently bought my self a Acer aspire 5552G, and now I'm trying to get the latest Ubuntu on it, I put the ubuntu on a USB drive and inserted it to my laptop, I changed boot orders so that all USB devices would come first.
Now if I changed only one USB device to boot first(the one where my USB was inserter, as it indicated it had SanDisc in it) It didn't do anything, it still booted up the Linpus linux ditro wich was installed on the laptop when I got it, it has no GUI and I can't do anything with it.
If I changed all USB devices to the top list of booting, the laptop started and then a text comes on the screen :
SYSLINUX 4.03 2010-10-22 EDD Copyright (C) 1994-2010 H. Peter Anvin et al.
And now it just stays like that and no matter what I press, nothing happens.
