When installing Ubuntu 12.04 server from a disc, my system freezes up after the installation comes to Installing GRUB boot loader, with a 50% completion bar and the command "Running "grub-install dummy"... below that.
I've tried this installation in both advanced and simple mode and the installation has frozen at this same spot for at least the past 10 attempts.
I'm having a constant issue when trying to install Ubuntu Server 14.04.1. Every time, the installer freezes at "Running 'grub-install' dummy" where the loading bar is at 50%. The MD5 checksum of the ISO is fine, and I used Windows 7 and Rufus to burn the ISO to a 1 GB USB drive.
I've been trying to install ubuntu on my laptop, an ASUS UX32VD with 128gb SSDs in RAID 0 for a while now. While the install completes successfully, the bootloader seems to not install, since a reboot doesn't boot into Ubuntu and there is no Grub prompt.
Hi,I managed to get a working GRUB in the meantime, BUT this can't be the final solution:Resized my partition to make room for UbuntuInstalled Ubuntu, and installed GRUB from Ubuntu:grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
grub-install /dev/sdaRebooted, and it works now.This leads me to the assumption that GRUB is defective on my Arch.
Im new to linux and I have created a live usb correctly as documented on the site, and have selected the usb as the primary boot option in my BIOS. The laptop I am trying to install on is an ASUS X102B. The problem is when it boots from usb I don't get a graphical install screen, I get Grub 2.02 and I don't know how to use Grub and where to begin. Please help me.
