So far I have tried to install Kubuntu 32 Bit Kubuntu 64 Bit Fedora 64 Bit and Linux Mint 64 Bit (no dualboot)
- AMD Fx-6300
- Gygabite 970A-UD3
- 160 GB SATA Hard Drive
- Radeon HD 4800
- 4 GB DDR3 Ram
I could install Kubuntu 32 Bit without problems but than i tried installing the 64 Bit Version and it always prompted the error
(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system
After reading that it used to happen on usb3-ports i checked and it happens for me only on the usb2 ports. When i plug it in the usb3 Port the installation starts. But at the end it prompted the failure:
Failed to install grub-efi to /target/
Than I installed kubuntu 64 bit out of the Live System and it succeeded. Apparently. When I tried to boot from the hard drive nothing happened. Just a blinking minus.
So I reinstalled grub2 in
chroot and it succeeded again. But again, it will not start.
So I checked a script that I found on a forum which will show me the destination of the grub bootloader and it found nothing.
So out of desperation I tried other Linux Versions. Fedora will not start at all, and linux mint starts the live system but when I install it, it failed to install grub-efi again (with error message).
Also I have the problem that my internet connection doesn't work when i load into a live system.
- Is there someone who has another idea? I just want a running 64 Bit Version of Kubuntu.
Sorry for bad english (not my native language)
I got Internet working by activating the
IOMMU in the bios. I also get rid of the
(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system error if I plug the usb drive in a USB2 Port.
Unfortunately I am still stuck with the Grub error.
According to this Thread it is not possible for me to install 13.04 due to a bug in Grub. So I installed Kubuntu 12.10 64-Bit and it worked! At the moment I am upgrading my OS to 13.04 and then I hope it is working...
