Thanks :wink:

P.S.:
if the issue depends by the buggy partitions, it still remains unclear how, on my machine, the USB pen with LM 3.1 boots without problems :?

I'm afraid but I need to reopen this thread because yesterday I tried to installa Daryna and got the same error above...

But on the same PC I've installed Ubuntu 7.10 a couple of weeks ago so I begin to think that there should be something related to the ISOs of Mint introduced since Celena that makes my system hangs with this error (because any version of Ubuntu since 6.06 installs quite well on the same hardware).

Another proble: I've also tried to install Mint 4.0 using my USB pen but, after a regular start of the process (splashscreen, look at the advanced options, loading of vmlinuz and initrd) the process halted after a couple of minutes with this screen:

BusyBox v.1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu7) Built-in Shell (Ash) ....etc...

And a prompt from ramdiskfs... :?:

isolinux: Disk error 01, AX = 4280, drive 73 (at first live cd boot menu)

Same here again. I have quit using Mint because of this error. I started getting this error with Celena, and now with Daryna. Something has happened since Celena to cause this error on certain PC's. I have never had this problem with any other distro. It has to be something that happens during the remastering, because Ubuntu, Mepis, Freespire and a couple other Ubuntu based cd's boot fine. I really hope someone can figure this bug out.

I'm glad to see that another user's having my same problems, because I was thinking that I was the only one that got that error!

Now I hope that any of the developers will look at this bug and try to solve it.

Like 67GTA, I've quit to use Mint because I wouldn't be able anymore to install Daryna on my desktop (where Ubuntu installed fine) after Cassandra.

Thank you Husse. It might help if everyone that has gotten this error posts their system info. Maybe there will be some specific hardware that sticks out. Do we need to start a new thread? Can anyone that has this error confirm that the retail CD's boot okay? If so, I will be glad to buy one.

I was also getting the same issue burning a darnya cd. I got 6 coasters! I finally was able to burn a proper iso on OSX... :?

Maybe there was something wrong with the darnya iso? Mind you I've downloaded it from 3 different servers and all the md5 sums checked out ok...

Starting from Celena isolinux is using a much heavier background image... maybe this is related, maybe it isn't. I know that in VMWare for instance it takes longer to show isolinux than it did with Cassandra and previous releases. As I honestly don't have a clue why you can't start isolinux on your machines future versions of Mint will use a lighter background image in order to eventually achieve better compatibility.

I'll make sure upcoming community editions use this lighter background image (or none at all).

Update on my situation. I did not have Windows installed(came preinstalled). After reading posts for the isolinux developer's forums, I found out that the 01 disk error pointed to a BIOS problem. I reinstalled Vista, and found a BIOS, and CD/DVD drive firmware update from HP. After installing these, Mint boots fine on my PC. I'm assuming it was the BIOS update. There have been a lot of syslinux errors with the newer versions becuase of BIOS incompatibility. IT WASN"T MINT. I wish you could get BIOS updates to install in Linux. A lot of people are like me, and only have Linux installed, and the BIOS gets frozen while the apps that work with the BIOS keep evolving. Maybe this will help others resolve the problem.

My BIOS is at the last available version and I cannot update it anymore (my mobo is discontinued).
On my system there is Windows XP together with Linux, not Vista.
My PC hasn't changed since Cassandra. But Cassandra installed quite fine, Celena and Daryna not.

I'm using Ubuntu 7.10 now, hoping Clem will try to look at this problem as soon as possible.

Hello together,

I am new to Mint and I wanna change from Ubuntu 7.10 to Daryna, but I have absolutly the same problem with this boot cd.
Any news about it? Every other Distro works fine on this hardware.

Here my details:
Athlon XP 3000+ on a Albatron KX600S Pro R1.10 (latest Bios) Mainboard
1024 MB RAM


Some News: in by Bios I changed the Sata Mode from IDE back to Raid, now the boot menu starts but when I try to start Mint the next error message appears.
Error Window:
Boot loader
Could not find kernel image: /casper/vmlinuz

But my CD is absolutly okay, I can boot it very well on my Laptop
I hope somebody can solve this Problem soon. I wanna use Mint :cry:

I have the same problem... I have my BIOS upgraded to the latest version... Other distos work..., but I like Mint the most.

I just read in another thread that the problem could be the Raid controller... I do have Raid 0 for my Vista partition...

I see you add yourself to an old thread - it's better to start anew topic.
Raid is a problem as no Raid on a (consumer) motherboard is pure hardware, it's basically a "slightly hardware assisted software Raid"
There is a built in Raid support in the present kernel.
Do some googling for Raid + Linux and Raid + gutsy and for Raid in the forum

OK, I was able to install Mint. For the install I disabled Raid, this solved my problem. I later re-enabled it and pointed my BIOS to my RAID 0 drive (Vista) for booting; because as Husse has mentioned previously, Linux doesn't see software raid controllers. In Vista I installed a boot manager (can't remember name) and I added Mint to it. After that, everything is working as it should be - I can now use both OS's.

I used EasyBCD as my boot manager, great app. When you select which partition to boot from, select your swap drive...

I get the same error in Daryna:

Code: Select all
isolinux: Disk error 01, AX=4280, drive 73


But ONLY on my very newest PC. It works great on older machine. Ubuntu 7.10, CENTOS 5, Fedora 7, and everything else I've tried work on the new PC where Mint fails.

I did a little looking and the problem,. I suspect, is the very old (from 2005) version of isolinux (v. 3.11 I think?) used for the Mint LiveCD. All the other distros are using 3.3x from 2007 and work wonderfully. I will continue using Mint on all my other machines and stick to Ubuntu Gutsy on the new one and hope that the next release of Mint incorporates a more up-to-date version of isolinux in the Live CD.

It is definetly a Daryna problem, I've tryed it a couple of times without result. The only thing i can set up in my Bios
is to set SATA Mode to IDE or RAID but when I use IDE it doesn't solve the problem. But what I absolutly did not understand
is why every Distribution I've ever tested works very well on my hardware except Mint.
I am using Mint on my laptop and I wanna use it on my desktop PC too but for now i have to live with Gutsy :wink:
