Re: Cannot PM

I realised that I could troubleshoot without spamming the recipient, by using "preview" instead of "submit". I deleted bits of the message and deduced that the following minimal code is enough to trigger the false block.

Code: Select all

Re: Cannot PM

Yes that all works. I then tried the other PM again and that failed again too. I guess something to do with the content? It's nothing outrageously weird… a bit of code I suppose.

Just to give this thread some (more) closure, I've since managed to boot with no custom options. Firstly, I managed to reduce my boot options to pci=noacpi, by troubleshooting as per http://www.lesswatts.org/projects/acpi/debug.php Recently, I installed Bumblebee, which is a package that controls th...

Re: Cannot boot Dell XPS 17 from Live DVD or USB

Thank you for that! It does indeed seem to work now! Do you know what the "acpi=enable pci=noacpi pci=assign-busse acpi=ht" options actually do? I also wanted to record a few notes for future users, including where I differed from the linked page. I booted from USB (Linux Mint 12, 64-bit, Live DVD),...

Re: Cannot boot Dell XPS 17 from Live DVD or USB

After teching for a few more hours… I get the the same result when attempting to install Ubuntu from a USB stick (perhaps unsurprisingly). I also tried Fedora, and the boot failed again, this time with the final lines udevd[169]: '/sbin/modprobe -bv pci:v000010DEd0000124Dsv00001028sd00000571bc03sc00...

Cannot boot Dell XPS 17 from Live DVD or USB

Hi, I'm trying to install Linux Mint 12 (DVD, 64-bit) on a new Dell XPS 17 (L702X), which came preloaded with Windows 7. I first tried installing from a USB drive, using unetbootin, then "Universal USB Installer". In both cases, I restarted, then selected USB in the BIOS. Whether I select "Start Lin...
