Can't install Ubuntu 8.10 on older Sony Laptop
Posted on 2008-11-04
I have WinXP on a Sony PCG-R505ECP laptop with a 1.13 Ghz CPU, 512 Mb RAM, 20 Gb HDD with 2 partitions - C: has WinXP and D: is just some files that can be blown away for the Ubuntu partition.
When I boot off the CD and try to install, it comes to the BusyBox error. I tried adding "all_generic_ide" to the install options and same result.
I don't have any undefined partition space on my HDD. I was planning to repartition during the Ubuntu install. I'm not sure if this is related to the install problems.
Any ideas? I'm an Ubuntu/Linux newbie.
