Description

leegold:

Same for 10.1 and 10.3

Out of approximately 20 tries, the DVD 19 times would not boot to a live desktop. the fix was mountroot> cd9660:/dev/cd0 then press enter and I got desktop. Sometimes the mountroot prompt would not even appear, but if entered "cd9660:/dev/cd0" it would boot.

Then I try the Install GhostBSD option, at a certain point I get an error message that install failed and to look at log file. the log file for 10.1 is cited belowed, the same error seemed to be in 10.3 too.

Burned DVD MD5 hash checks OK.

So, I cannot install.

Possibly the problem is the use of the external USB DVD Drive(?) So maybe to reproduce the problem you would need a laptop with no internal DVD drive and boot from an external USB drive. The laptop is an ACER Aspire One 722, the USB DVD drive is an LG GP08 (LU10).

ericbsd:

I don't think external USB CD/DVD drive have been tested before. The ISO is made to boot from internal drive or from USB stick.

I think I have one here I will test and see if I get the same problem.

#2 Updated by asxbsd over 1 year ago

  • Target version set to GhostBSD 11-ALPHA

#3 Updated by ericbsd about 1 year ago

  • Priority changed from Normal to Low
  • Target version deleted (GhostBSD 11-ALPHA)

My USB DVD does not work, until I we can have someone testing this this might be a problem that will stay for a while.

Hello.

I just downloaded and created a (live) usb stick with pre-release 11. Everything seems to be OK but at the last step (where on has to choose video card) the screen becomes blank; no choice leads to a working desktop.

PS. My box is an Apple MacBook Pro Retina (mid 2014).

"EXITERROR: ERROR: Unable to locate installation DVD/USB"

At the point when this error happens, the installer try to mount any optical media available, and any USB memstick plugged in, looking for a file that identify the GhostBSD media.

In your case, it appear it is unable to find this file, or the DVD itself.

The fact you are using an external USB drive should not matter, in fact I succeded in installing 10.3 from an external USB/DVD many times.

Is that an USB3 device ?
Have you tried to change USB port ? (and of course don't use external USB hubs).

Please retry and while doing that be sure to not have other optical media plugged in, nor USB sticks plugged in.

I have tried with both usb3 port of my box, but nothing. For some reason the X server is not loaded (or if it loaded, one only can seen a blank screen).
