Hi, Just to report a problem I experienced with installing 64 Studio from the DVD iso. During installation, I have an error message "Please insert a Ubuntu install disk", and if I try to ignore, or to check the cd with the installer, or whatever, I always have a message like this one. So impossible to install. I checked the DVD after burning (brasero option). Do I have to re-download and reburn? Maybe is there a more recent iso that I can find elsewhere than on the standard mirrors? Just to tell, I own an amd64 dual core workstation, 2Gb of ram, 3 sata hard disks, m2n-sli deluxe workstation, ati firegl 3600 graphic card, and a RME hdsp Multiface II sound card. As it works well with Ubuntu Hardy or Jaunty, I am surprised that it fails. Toine

Hi, There seems to be an issue with 8.04 as a base for my system using the nVidia Geforce 8200. I say this because as a workaround to not being able to load Beta3 on my system, I tried to install LinuxMint5 (based on U 8.04) with the thought of upgrading to 64Studio per above. But I had the same failure. I got stuck at the busybox-initramfs spot. So, I tried my version of UStudio 8.04 and it did the same thing. I do not know how to test for bugs but this seems to pretty clearly point at something with this nVidia set and 8.04. Now, UStudio 9.04 goes in smoothly without a hitch as does Sidux. Also, LinuxMint 6 and 7 install cleanly too. Is there something you would like me to report or test on this? I cannot even get it to install so I am not sure what I can do but am willing to try. James

I just have a look at it,

I just have a look at it, and it appears that I always have a problem with my sata disks when installing Debian on this workstation. So AHCI may be a good start to find a way. I'll try with the master iso suggested by dave. And of course let you know.

Hi Toine, This could be either a bios option, or a faulty disk. I once had a faulty download, and even though it started installing perfectly it would cause strange messages. Check your MD5sum as a first board of call. The bios option has to do with the mode of the DVD drive. There are a couple of treads on here dealing with installer boot problems already. This one could prove helpful? Cheers, Quentin
