When I insert the Ubuntu Live CD into my laptop cd drive, it is recognized, as it shows the menu where I can choose to install, to try it without installing etc. However, when I choose install, it says that something is not empty... and it won't install, neither does the live version start up.

I got Ubuntu 10.4 LTS to install and run OK on an old Dell Inspiron, after overcoming an initial command line prompt and then foolishly upgraded to 12.x beta and that didn't see my home wireless network. So, I reinstalled back to 10.4 LTS, but now don't boot to GUI (as in first case) but get a "grub>" prompt in a command window. I have no idea of how to get the GUI to boot up. Help please.
Ok, so I have been successfully able to install openSUSE to my computer using a live-USB. This is well and good, but I've determined that I would really like the options given to me in a full install of the OS (as one would from a DVD).
I notice that my machine is quite slow since I reinstalled. I was previously running FC6 and things were a lot better.
What can I do to get rid of this desktop lag? I am running this on a p4 1.3ghz with 384 MB ram. Not the best and it's from the 90s but it works. I didn't install the office packages or KDE. Just a basic install.
Hi thereUntil yesterday I had both crunchbang and winxp installed on my desktop computer. Today I reinstalled winxp and then proceeded to install CrunchBang from a Live CD (R20111125 image). After selecting Live Session and hit ENTER nothing happened.
I have a Compaq SR5130NX (originally Win7) which was given to us with no HDD. I installed a Seagate 40G hdd in the machine and installed 12.04 from the Live CD. No install errors reported. After install the computer will not boot - we get a Read Error.
Tested the HDD with SeaTools (DOS), drive looks good. Erased HDD and reinstalled 12.04.
