Can't Enable Device BAR 13 ??

Post by authordave » Sat Feb 24, 2018 3:01 pm

When I try to install LM17 or 18 I get this Error Message, "Can't Enable Device BAR 13", which stops the install process.
It's an Old Desktop PC.
I've this PC since Linspire 2.0 and it was working with LM17.2 until now.

"Stops the install process", you say. Do you mean you get this message when booting the Live DVD/USB or at some later point? If former the message itself may in fact be (relatively) benign; just be the only error message the kernel printed before starting to init your graphics which is where it actually bombs out. If that's the case, try booting with "nomodeset": https://linuxmint.com/rel_sylvia_cinnamon.php, "Solving freezes during the boot sequence".

If the situation is other you'll have to be more verbose in describing it. Or, seeing as how you at some point had 17.2 running, install that and upgrade to 17.3 if the 17.2 install was a fresh one at the time.
