Hi there! I'm trying to install 64Studio on a Laptop with a Pentium Dual Core processor... But the install boot stops when it displays "Starting system log daemon: syslogd, klogd" Can anyone help me solving it? The DVD is ok, because I had installed it on another computer! Thank's!

Hi I'm a linux noob. I first installed XP Pro, then Ultimate Ubuntu 1.9 AMD64 ver (hardy heron based) and tried to install 64 Studio. At first it booted the install disc (64 S 2.1 AMD64 vrsion) on a Pioneer DVR 215 and after the keyboard setup it said CD not recognised (or smt like that) and the install failed. Then i checked these forums and tried the "switch to RAID" in BIOS (it was set to IDE). It didn't work, but when I tried the AHCI mode it installed perfectly. However, since my XP was installed in IDE mode it couldn't boot in AHCI so i set it back to IDE but then the 64 studio screen just appears and the install doesn't continue (on F2 says "waiting for ....") Then I reinstalled the 64 studio, but when i t asked to reboot I went to BIOS and switched back to IDE... AND I T WORKS NOW :) Hope this helped

Hi, I can't install ANY distro here... Sometimes I need to disable usb, sometimes the installation can't find any HD Controller... Can it be a Kernel problem? Thank's for the help!

HD is SATA?

Ok... neither my live CD is working! But I found a way to make it work! Just booting without usb support! It boots now, but what can I do if I NEED usb support, and also, it didn't find any HD! Perhaps my HD is SATA?! I tried to boot 64studio with nousb but the problem persists!

Hi, CheckOut GParted livecd from here: http://distrowatch.com/index.php?dataspan=4 http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=gparted Use the livecd to format the partition to ext3. I dont use Vista so dual booting Vista is new here, do some research before you begin. e.g. is Vista booting ok with the partition you've created. With w2k/xp it's wise to defrag before you create or change partition layouts. You might have already done this! I don't know. 64studio grub finds w2k/xp partitions fine, and configures the menu list. Not sure about Vista. It's better to have the partition created and formated before installing 64studio, it could be your problem. Here is a link to my favourite rescue livecd, always nice to have one. You could also use it to partition/format your disk. You could also see the download/burn livecd boot as a test to see all is ok before you try to install again. Don't rush, take your time. :-) ftp://ftp.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/mepis/released/ Edit: GParted is on also on the Mepis cd Cheers, dave

I still have the iso image here on my PC... Currently on my laptop I had installed Window$ Vi$ta, and I have a partition made with Vi$ta istaller but not yet formated, could it be the problem? Should I remove it or something like it? Thank's again!

Sorry about that ;) Have you tried burning the dvd at a slower rate? or with the different boot options? Can you download another iso and use your laptop to burn the image? What OS is on the laptop now. Are you going for dual boot or just pure 64studio install. I am wondering how you are partitioning the hard disk. Cheers dave

Hi Dave! My laptop has a Intel T2370 Processor on an ECS U50SA1 Motherboard. And also, my HD is an Western Digital WD250BEVS-22UST0, and I think it is IDE. If the problem is my keyboard (I don't think it is an USB keyboard!) how can I solve it? I cannot change it! Please, help me solving this problem! Thank's again!

Hi, There was a similar post recently that might help, the problem was a usb keyboard. http://www.64studio.com/node/708 If not when you boot the dvd go to the boot help menu (f1) and try booting with the option boot: install acpi=off One of the main problems with installing fron the dvd is the speed you burn the dvd. x4 speed is the best. It might be worth burning another dvd at the slower speed. I have dvd images here that will work on one pc and fail on another. Check usb hardware first. The more info you post about your setup the better. Cheers, dave
