I cannot boot Ubuntu (either 6.06 or 6.10) live, and therefore cannot install it onto my computer. My computer meets all the specs, and should be able to run it, but an error pops up when it gets to that point when trying to boot. It says that I have an error with the x.org, I should update the x.org. I only have a loose idea what x.org is, and no idea at all how to update it. What should I do?
Upon further inspection, it appears I must update my bios, a process which is strange and intimidating to me...
So do I. When I have been installing, the process was broken. I don't know what's wrong. I try many times, but not successfull. Finally, I don't try again.
I've had this problem. In my case, the install CD does not work.
The CD spends like 10 minutes 'loading' and then the system restarts
and the process starts all over again. Nothing happens.
About having to burn it slow, that's not really true. You should burn it without any errors, but newer burners don't need to be slow for that. I burned many OSs on 32x and it's never been a problem.
About your error, I have no idea, I've never been able to make Ubuntu crash/error yet, but I'm not using it anymore either.
My first step would be to burn a new CD. Maybe the CD did not burn right the first time. If you still have this issue after burning a new CD, you might want to try Xubuntu and see if you can install without any problems.
How old is your computer? What is the computer specs?
