Red Hat Enterprise 3 will not install on SATA drive
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 5, 2007
I am new to this forum. I have Red Hat Enterprise 3 at my new job. I tried to install it on a system already running Windows XP SP2 (dual booting). Red Hat did not detect the SATA drives. I then installed a regular ATA drive. It is currently installed on that drive but, it cannot detect the keyboard or mouse (USB keyboard and mouse). How can I remedy this problem and how can I install RHE3 on a SATA drive. I did not have this problem with FC6 but, we are only allowed to use approved software that includes OS's. Thank you.
Virtual Box Will Not Install XP
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 9, 2009
I am using Mint 7 on a Dell pentium 4 laptop. By Mint 7's search I got virtual box, it seems to be the latest edition. Nov 09.
After configuring things in user groups and in virtual box, I cannot get virtual box to load Windows XP.
It will not start. "VERR_VM_DRIVER NOT INSTALLED", abort...
Even though the CD drive is going.
Perhaps I should get another edition? If so, how can I completely remove this one with the 10240 space? Or should I repair it?

Hello, a friend of mine wants to install ubuntu on his Toshiba Satellite Pentium 4 2.66Ghz 512MB RAM, 40GB HDD and I dont know if it will work on his system... He will bring the laptop to me and I try to test it with the live cd... What I'm trying to do now is gathering more documentation.... I want to know what other users experienced ( like sound , video , wireless problems).
Bootable Linux CD or nonpartitioned install on old PentiumIII with 512mb ram
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 6, 2008
First I want to say that this web site is a fantastic resource! It's a little overwhelming to a total newbie like myself, but thank you everyone for participating!
I have an old 533mhz Pentium III computer that primarily is used as a web machine or word processing when my other computers are in use. No other functions are critical on that machine. It has Windows 98 on it (with a few old programs that make me want to keep Win98 until I retire the computer completely).
It has been working flawlessly for about a decade, but somehow networking got screwed up and it has to be reset to recognize the internet every time it's turned on. Not a smooth user experience.
Before I ask questions, these are some things to know about me:
1) I'm not a "power user." Whatever that means, other than using electricity, I'm not it.
2) I hope to avoid command lines as much as possible.
3) I like an interface I can point and click on
4) I hope I can get up and runni
Ubuntu 7.10 jeos fresh install, will not boot

only have one 40GB hard drive hooked up by itself on IDE and one DVD±RW
I had successfully installed it but still gets stuck time after time, while booting.
*is it the video cards?
*should I try another drive configuration? (I've even tried having only the HD hooked up)
After this I'm going to disconnect everything that is not needed and try booting again. and also using the on board
Linux Mint & Ubuntu install fine but will not boot after install.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 24, 2013
So I have this Toshiba Satellite p755 that came with windows 7 at the time.
During a bios update the thing freezes for a couple hours and I eventually am forced to unplug the thing. It turns into a 700 dollar brick that freezes at the windows screen every time.
I decide to just switch to Linux.
Load up Mint and everything is going well. the live cd boots up and the install goes well, everything is great. go through the reboot process, cd pops out, reboots, FREEZES.
I do this a few times before I decide to try ubuntu. same exact thing happens with ubuntu.
as a last ditch effort i decide to try the "boot repair disk" at source forge by yannubuntu
It ran through its thing and said it did some stuff, but the problem persisted.
I am thinking it must be something deeper than the operating system that im running because all three OS's freeze at the start screen.
I thought that perhaps it was the hard drive itself, but then how is mint and Ubuntu able to install
password will not work after install of windows ubuntu installer (wubi)
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 14, 2014
Hello to all Ubuntu users! I'm brand new, here, and have never used any Unix/Linux based product, although, technically, Mac OS is suppossedly Linux based.
At any rate, I just installed the 32 bit version of Ubuntu (13.02 I believe) on an old Dell GX270 PC running dual boot XP and Win7; 2.9 GHz P4 HypterThreading and 2GB RAM (the most it can take).
During the install, the first box requests a username and password. The ID "user" was already in the "username" box as that is how I was logged onto XP (from where I did the install; not from the Win7 side). So, I entered a password twice, as indicated, and let the install complete.
Once the install was finished, and the PC booted into Ubuntu, I entered the username ("user" which appeared on the initial install screen prompt) and the password I entered at that time; received an "invalid password" message. What gives??
At this point, I can only loggon as "guest" which allows me to do ab
ubuntu lucid will not mount android 2.1 phone storage

Asus Eee PC 1005HA Netbook will not shutdown using Ubuntu 11.4
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 3, 2011
I have an Asus Eee PC 1005HA Netbook which originally came with Windows 7 Starter installed.
Upon purchase I installed Ubuntu 9.4. Installation went well, and operation was excellent. I was particularly happy with the wireless networking automatically picking up various networks at my clients after coming out of hibernation.
The only glitch was and continues to be that when I go to shut down or restart the netboook it will send the term signal but the netbook then goes to the Ubuntu splash screen and continues to cycle across the bottom buttons indefinitely. (I don't think this is just that it takes a long time, because I have walked away from it for hours and it still is cycling.) If I wait for a couple of cycles and then hold down the power button the computer will shut down. Restarting it after this seems normal and everything operates normally.
This happens, both when I use the Gnome shutdown command on the logout menu or if I use : sudo shutdown -P now
I have done some re
Ubuntu 9.10 will not copy to usb drive anything more then 4GB
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 19, 2010
Trying to copy ISO images over to a external hard drive, when copying it reaches 4GB then stops.
I have tried the same with a external usb thumb drive as well and the same thing happens so it is not the external drives running out of space.
The error reads.
Error Writing to file is to large.
