HELP - Error on installing LinuxMint11 on Netbook

Post by MichiruKaioh »

Thanks for replying so quickly - it is a Gateway NAV 50 netbook that had Windows 7 Starter on it, but it does not have an OS on it presently, except for the partial installation of Linux Mint.

Currently it is stuck on "mount: mounting/dev/sda1 on /cdrom failed: Invalid argument
stdin: error 0.

The netbook doesn't have a CDROM drive, I was using a USB drive to boot Linux Mint initially and for the installation.

Does this help?

Hi,

I apologize if I am posting a silly question, I am a newbie to Linux. I tried installing Linux Mint on my netbook from a USB and it booted fine, but half way into the installation it froze. I restarted the computer and it keeps spitting out error messages:

udevd[71] worker: [76] unexpectedly returned with status 0x100
yswcs[711]: worker [76] failed while handling '/devices/pci0000:00/0000"001f.2....etc etc
udevd[71] worker: [79] unexpectedly returned with status 0x100

What do I do? Please help!


Thank you!
