Installing
« on: April 11, 2013, 09:47:37 PM »
I'm trying to install on an Acer laptop running XP. I cannot set BIOS to boot from the usb so I downloaded the other file to burn to a disk (uber-install2.iso). When it runs these are supposed to be the options:
1.Install ubermix
2.Apply simple updates
3.Do both 1 & 2
4.Fast image (both 1 & 2, format user home, no prompts)
5.Expert Options

When i do this this selection appears BUT the first option is to "Image..."  blah, blah, blah.
I cannot install Ubermix! Frustrating!!
Can anyone shed light into this problem?

Option 1 does nothing. It works for 10 seconds and then nothing. When I boot, it boots to Windows,which I want wiped out!

Try option 5 (Expert) the 4 (Reset partition table), reboot, and then try number 1 again.

If that doesn't work, use option 4.

I have uberstudent installed on my laptop with no other operating system.  burnt ubermix iso (ubermix-key2.iso) placed in cd/dvd drive, when into boot options and selected boot from cd.  No options appear to perform the install.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I'm new to linux - i figured that the iso would boot and install, create partition needed etc....   how do you flaten (format) a hard drive in terminal?

Might be a video card issue. Try pressing esc when you see the little person at the bottom, then F6 (other options) and choose the nomodeset option. Press esc one more time, then enter to boot.
