Gorgon Posted April 4, 2009 Share Posted April 4, 2009 (edited) After installation, which was quick and painless, I can't get past the first restart where it says a file name has the wrong format. The version I tried was ubuntu-8.10-desktop-amd64. I'm a bit worried about the AMD part in the name, I mean who's on an AMD these days, but it was the only 64 bit official download and it mentioned nothing about processor architecture. Also my burner has definitely seen better days and coughed several times during the ISO burn, so I went down and got a new one. Going to try it again. This time I'll burn both the 64 and 32 bit versions of the Ubuntu live disk. I have a few remaining worries, such as whether Ubuntu will be able to recognize my already created partition, I read somewhere that Ubuntu does not assign drive letters to partitions like Windows. If I can't use that old partition It would make sense to defrag my HDD first, it's an old installation and that is apt to take a loong time. I would rather not. Also there is the off chance that my board does not support linux oficially. I don't think that will be a problem, it's an Asus Maximus formula, but I might look it up just the same.
