LogimiteI am very sorry20:56
Bashing-omLogimite: Sorry - I can not make out what the video portrays.20:57
Logimiteit is my error during installation20:57
Logimitewhen I am trying to install it20:57
Logimiteit closes the window20:57
Logimitewhen i have the partition error20:57
v1adimirLogimite: is it a blank drive you're installing to, or?20:58
Logimitei installed it by using a sata adapter20:59
Logimiteand flashing directly20:59
v1adimirugh. what? :)20:59
Logimitei took out the hard drive20:59
Logimiteand i used an adaapter20:59
Logimiteso i can flash the drive20:59
Logimiteinstead of using anything else21:00
diogenes_Logimite, what happens when you click 'device for bootloader installation"21:00
Logimitelet me try it again21:00
Logimitewhere is that button21:00
v1adimirdiogenes_: his "problem" is going to be wayyy beyond that, as he's "flashing" a HDD via a adapter...21:00
Logimitewhat is wrong with that?21:01
v1adimirHonestly, I wouldn't even know where to begin, LOL21:01
diogenes_no clue what adapter is that.21:01
v1adimirand, you know.. just, why. :)21:02
Logimitei didnt know how to do it another way21:02
v1adimirum, that was rhetorical I swear21:02
v1adimirLogimite: how was your hard drive working before, what operating system did you have and are there any other drives in the system?21:03
Logimiteso i flashed it on macos21:03
diogenes_Logimite, ok i hope guys in here will help you to figure out because at this point my brain is boiling, if you don't solve the issue come back again tomorrow.21:03
Logimitethere were no other drives21:03
Logimiteand there was no operating system21:04
* diogenes_ is offline21:04
v1adimirok and it's a SATA drive, plugged into the motherboard via a SATA cable?21:04
v1adimir(forget any "adapter" that you're talking about)21:04
Logimiteso I should format the drive?21:05
v1adimirdo you have access to another machine, preferably Windows so that you can make a bootable Xubuntu USB, using Rufus: https://rufus.ie/ ?21:06
LogimiteI don't have a windows though21:06
Logimiteso can I use etcher or unetbootin21:06
Logimiteon mac21:06
v1adimirbecause there's NO reason that you wouldn't be able to reconnect your HDD normally, just the way it used to be - and, simply, install Xubuntu using its regular setup menus21:07
LogimiteBut I do not have any other operating systen21:07
v1adimirthe Xunbutu (Ubuntu) installer is *very* good and the only thing that I can think of is that you made "a dodgy" USB21:07
Logimiteon the laptop I am trying to install21:08
Logimiteso it will boot if I use an external USB?21:08
v1adimirhow else are you expecting to install the OS? :) via DVD drive?21:08
LogimiteWait, can I use a dvd?21:09
v1adimirWell, how did you load that setup in the video you uploaded?21:10
Logimitethe sata21:10
v1adimirOh, geez. :))21:11
Logimiteokay right now I will take out the hard drivew21:11
v1adimirSo, made a bootable installation from the Xubuntu on the HDD drive that you're trying to install to? xD21:11
v1adimirThat's too crazy, lolz. :D21:11
v1adimirCan you run a live system with it?21:12
v1adimirAt least use it to create a bootable USB, right?21:12
LogimiteI yes21:12
Logimitei already took it out though21:12
v1adimirWell I guess either etcher or unetbootin ^^ should suffice in creating a bootable USB and /or DVD for your installation.21:13
v1adimirThe plug-in the drive back normally and boot the computer from that ^ USB /or DVD and simply install to the HDD21:14
Logimitebut there is one problem21:14
Logimitemy hard drive cannot be formattedd21:14
Logimiteso should I just put a blank iso file on it?21:14
Logimitelook at what?21:15
v1adimir1) you need to use a Xubuntu ISO to create a bootable USB stick /or write it to a DVD.21:15
v1adimir2) boot from that USB and install to the drive - use Xubuntu setup for ANY disk operations you may need - and IF for some reason it won't let you:21:16
Logimiteso, I can just plug the hard drive back in?21:16
v1adimir3) use the bootable USB to run a live system and install-and-use Gparted to simply remove all partitions from the HDD21:17
v1adimiryou do NOT need to have any partitions on the HDD, nor do you need to format it: the Xubuntu setup does it all for you.21:17
v1adimirhope so :)21:18
v1adimirand don't (ever) use "dd" to make a bootable media from the ISO, btw.21:20
v1adimirwhen you get to those options, if21:20
Logimitewaait, if i decide to use cd21:20
Logimitethen how would I do that?21:21
Logimiteso I flash the cd21:21
MrWarwakaEUVladimir, vi russkij?21:21
Logimiteand then I put it in the computer21:21
v1adimirMrWarwakaEU: Serbian :)21:21
Logimiteand boot21:21
v1adimirLogimite: there's no "flashing" going on, I don't know what you mean by that.21:21
Logimitelike in etch21:21
Logimitelike you put the os on the c21:22
MrWarwakaEUI dont speak serbian21:22
v1adimirRight, it's retarded that they're calling it flashing21:22
v1adimirit's creating bootable media, from a ISO file21:22
Logimiteso how would I do that with a cd?21:23
v1adimirsame way as with a USB :)21:23
Logimitewith the dvd though, it doesnt open until you start the computer21:24
v1adimirI don't know if etcher, or whatever is capable of doing it - perhaps best if you have a USB at hand (all data on it WILL be destroyed)21:24
Logimitewell I know that etcher is capable of doing it21:25
Logimiteand I dont really have a dvd on hand...21:25
LogimiteI know21:25
Logimiteyes, I do have one21:25
v1adimirYou use the computer BIOS to select what drive it will boot from, right..21:25
Logimitei dont know how to use bios21:25
MrWarwakaEUis there any media palyer for linux that shows on autoradio the resolution of video beeing played the way BS player for windows do?21:26
v1adimirMrWarwakaEU: No idea, other than VLC21:26
MrWarwakaEUVLC dont do that21:27
v1adimirLogimite: Maybe you need to take a second, then, and figure out first how to get into your machine's BIOS and change the startup order. Usually it may already be set to boot from a USB/DVD first, by default, unless you've changed it.21:27
Logimitewait, my computer is restarting21:27
Logimitefor some random reason21:27
Logimiteis it possible for me to join again?21:28
MrWarwakaEUI dont mind21:28
LogimiteI have stopped the reboot21:28
v1adimirLogimite: Yes, from here: https://webchat.freenode.net/21:28
LogimiteThe last time I tried that all the chat history was cleared21:28
Logimiteactually,  I will reboot later21:29
v1adimirOr maybe something like https://www.irccloud.com/ from your phone, but you'd need to figure out how to get to chat.freenode.net21:29
v1adimirEasiest is to use the webchat21:29
v1adimirit's ok, there's no critical info here that you may miss later. :) you just need a bootable USB, to which you've loaded the xubuntu installation using unetbootin or whatever, and plug in the drive normally and install21:31
v1adimircareful the USB will be wiped21:31
v1adimirnot sure if a 2GB one will do, but 4GB for sure will work21:31
Logimitei am using a 250gb one XD21:33
v1adimirthat'll do :P21:33
v1adimirLogimite: if you just go for it (and don't change anything in the BIOS) and the computer doesn't start from the bootable USB = it can simply mean that it wasn't made right21:34
Logimitebut are you sure that the internal hard drive doesn't need a wipe?21:35
v1adimirand there's usually, on newer machines, like you can press F11 or something to get a little manual menu during startup to select what drive to boot from just the one time21:35
v1adimirwithout getting into the BIOS at all21:35
LogimiteI am on a 2004 laptop21:35
v1adimirok that's probably NOT going to have it :)21:35
Logimitehow do you go into bios?21:36
v1adimirbt u never know, check what flashes across the screen when starting you know that sort of thing, like at the bottom21:36
v1adimirusually it's F2, or the DEL key depending on the machine21:36
v1adimirsometimes it's ESC on some laptops21:36
v1adimirand just find the boot order there and like put the USB and /or DVD above your HDD - it means that whenever you have a bootable USB /DVD drive when starting the machine, it will load from there before the hard disk21:37
Logimiteon mine it says the lenovo care button.21:37
v1adimir*plugged in21:37
Logimiteany idea what that is?21:37
v1adimirno clue =)21:37
Logimiteokay i am booting21:38
v1adimirdid you make a bootable USB and return the HDD to its SATA cable to the motherboard? :)21:38
v1adimiroh! that was FAST, then. :$21:39
Logimitethere was an option saying boot from first hard drive21:39
Logimiteshould I have done that?21:39
v1adimirright, it's a laptop... so HDD back into the case then..:) err, I don't know - see what's loading now?21:40
Logimitesame screen21:40
v1adimirbecause you have made the HDD into a bootable USB basically xD21:40
v1adimirso we don't know, lolz21:40
Logimiteit is bringing up a new screen21:41
v1adimirhm, well - hopefully!21:41
v1adimiryou don't need any manual partition options - if you select the "automatic" install it will respect the amount of RAM you have and make the swap partition that same size and so on21:42
v1adimirit's all automagical in Xubuntu21:42
Logimiteit is installing21:42
v1adimirfingers crossed21:42
Logimitedo you think xubuntu would run well on a 2004 laptop?21:42
v1adimiryeah, it should be decent21:43
v1adimirjust install the uBlock Origin Add-on for Firefox to get rid of the ads21:44
Logimitecan you install Midori21:44
Logimiteon xubuntu?21:45
v1adimirshould be in there i think21:45
v1adimir"Midori is part of the Xfce desktop environment's Goodies componenthttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Midori_(web_browser)21:45
v1adimirbt I've never used it, so idk.21:45
Logimiteis it normal to take this much time to install?21:46
v1adimirafter a while you'll get a button somewhere on the bottom right, something like that to skip the rest of the install - but I don't know by heart, don't wanna say something wrong21:46
v1adimirand if the drive isn't a SSD then yeah it can take a while21:47
v1adimirand also how fast is your internet..21:47
Logimitevery. fast21:47
Logimiteand it is ethernet21:47
Logimiteand its a hard drive21:47
Logimiteit is stuck on Creating ext4 file system for / in partition #5 of SCSI521:48
v1adimiryou may have booted from the HDD again, then21:48
Logimiteoh no21:48
v1adimirrly not sure sry21:48
Logimitebut i got farther than last time21:49
v1adimirpartitioning shouldn't take that long at all, I can tell you that much. :)21:49
Logimiteoh no....21:49
Logimiteshould i shut down?21:49
v1adimiri guess and see how to change the boot order from the bios21:50
v1adimirtry DEL /F2 /Esc when first powering on - just tap the buttons a lot21:50
v1adimirand CTRL+ALT+DEL if you miss it and try again /different keys21:51
v1adimirand CAREFUL with the BIOS, lol, don't rush anything in there. :) no putting any passwords, or anything crazy like that xD21:51
v1adimiryou don't need to DISABLE any devices - just switch the boot order around21:52
LogimiteWhat should I do in bios21:52
LogimiteI got to boot orddder21:53
v1adimir(and save on close, usually it's F10 to save and close)21:53
v1adimirwell, raise the USB drive above the HDD in boot order, right?21:53
v1adimiryou want it to boot from your USB setup first21:53
Logimitelet me show you a pic how it works21:53
Logimitenot workss21:54
v1adimirwe are spamming this channel's logs BIG time by the way, lolz :f21:54
v1adimirok so the USBx ones you need to move 'em up... try + or something?21:56
v1adimirnot the "USB FDD"21:56
Logimiteusb hdd?21:56
v1adimiri think so21:56
v1adimirand "key" for good measure maybe21:56
LogimiteI do not see key21:57
v1adimir"USB KEY"21:57
v1adimirno need whatever that is21:57
v1adimirthen just F10 I think to save and close and blast off!21:57
Logimitei did it21:57
Logimitenow rebooting21:58
v1adimirmaybe you need to press a key when you reboot, to launch USB setup, like any key? does it prompt something like that?21:58
v1adimirjust see21:58
Logimiteit says lenovo care21:58
Logimiteand i see this weird button outside keyboard21:58
Logimitemaybe i press that21:59
v1adimirnah, hopefully it's booting from the USB now21:59
v1adimiryou can always start the live system and not the setup directly21:59
v1adimirand see what's going on21:59
Logimitehmm it is now giving me a black screen with a blinking terminal thing21:59
Logimitewell,  it is not doing anything22:00
v1adimirthat means you're booting from the USB and it's not made correctly - just use a different program to make a bootable USV22:00
v1adimirbootable USB from the Xubuntu iso22:00
v1adimirand you're good to go22:00
v1adimiri guess? :)22:00
v1adimiri never understood how many new versions of etcher with their fancy website will they need to make - to actually have a working product. xD22:01
Logimiteunetbootin is ugly but it is good22:01
v1adimirit's been like that for years, I don't get it. :f22:01
v1adimiralright just highlight me if you get stuck again. gl! :)22:02
v1adimirv1adimir: << like that22:02
Logimitev1adimir it does not worj22:03
v1adimiryou mean from another machine?22:03
v1adimirhow are you going to make the bootable USB?22:03
Logimiteunetbootin is not recognizing22:03
Logimiteso i will use etcher?22:03
v1adimirnow I'm not sure again if we're on planet Earth together. =) are you on a different machine now, to make the bootable USB?22:04
v1adimirok on unetbootin can't recognize your new huge usb? :(22:04
v1adimirwell, ****22:05
LogimiteI turned on unsafe mode on etcher22:05
v1adimirmaybe try etcher i don't know, i make 'em via windows using Rufus always - can't remember the last time I've used anything else sorry22:05
v1adimirgonna eat something b4 i pass out22:06
Logimitehmm it still doesnt work22:19
Logimitehmm i think that he left22:23
Logimitehas he>22:23
Logimiteor has he not22:23
Logimitehas he22:23
Logimiteor has he not22:23
v1adimirLogimite: You see how on the Rufus website https://rufus.ie/ that first screenshot shows MBR and BIOS/UEFI22:28
v1adimirThere's a difference between a UEFI install and a regular BIOS which you have and if you use a (modern) tool like Etcher it will always default to making a UEFI bootable media and that's why it's not working.22:29
v1adimirIf you can believe it..22:29
Logimiteso should we use  unetbootin?22:29
Logimiteit didnt work22:29
v1adimirit doesn't see your USB drive is that it?22:30
v1adimiryea, that's messed up :( you'll have to look for a different tool and maybe someone here can help22:30
LogimiteI know what is wrong22:31
Logimiteit says you should reformat it aas fat3222:31
Logimiteso that it can reaad22:31
v1adimirsry I don't use the tools, so don't know by heart22:31
LogimiteI know how but it will be difficult...22:32
Logimitewell, thank you22:32
Logimitei will try on my own22:33
Logimiteand tell you if it workss22:33
v1adimirYeah man, good luck. :)22:33
Logimitewait what?22:33
Logimiteunet bootin is acting weird22:33
Logimitesomething happened22:33
Logimiteand it started writing22:33
Logimitethat is weird!22:33
v1adimirlook if you want 100% bulletproof way (and this is retarded), then:22:34
v1adimiron your other linux machine you can always install the oracle VM and install windows and use Rufus within it to make the USB. :))22:34
Logimitebut that is just...22:34
Logimitevery stretched out22:35
v1adimirbut, I mean.. That's crazy, for whoever else is reading they may wanna kick me in the butt for even suggesting it. =)22:35
v1adimirif you have a DVD writer on your other machine, use some other software to write a bootable dvd from the xubuntu iso22:35
Logimitei have that22:36
LogimiteIT INSTALLED22:36
Logimitelet me try it22:36
