I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 on a x86 Sony VAIO (its 10 years old.. running XP) and it is not working at all. I burned a LiveCD, popped it in, it came up to the Ubuntu splash screen then came to this:
BusyBox v1.19.3 (Ubuntu 1:1.19.3-7Ubuntu) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands (initrams) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system _
After a little research, I tried the CD on a x64 machine to find it works perfectly (the LiveCD is the x32 version), a laptop about 2 years old. I have tried unplugging unnecessary USB devices, there is no IDE > AHCI option in BIOS.. and I know my CD drive should be OK, I've done LiveCD's before. Anyone have any ideas? Make enter a special code by pressing Shift at the disc startup? Any help here is deeply appreciated!
