Question about ASUS Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Ubuntu USB

First of all, I downloaded Ubuntu Linux 13.04 64-bit, a free operating system and installed it on my flash drive using YUMI, a USB boot creator, (This is perfectly legal seeing as Ubuntu is freeware), but every time I boot up my computer it says something like "No configuration file found" and then "No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found". I'm wondering if my BIOS drivers for my motherboard are out of date, (my USB flash drive is in FAT32 format), or if its just that the operating system wasn't set up correctly. Thank you in advanced. Sincerely, Anonymous.

    Ok sooo I figured that it really wasnt worth trying to get it to work because kubuntu and all the other buntus work just fine on any other computer but mine (running from flashdrive via yumi) so i just decided to leave it be but id atleast like to have lubuntu working on my pc (running on my hardrive via wubi) which is the default way to install it from ubuntu, but i installed and everytime i boot up lubuntu from the os selection menu on my comp it says a long error report and the ending (which i figured was the most important cuz it was the most understandable) goes like this "hardware error: machine check: processor context corrupt, kernal panic - not syncing: fatal machine check, rebooting in 30 seconds." my comp stats are windows xp home 32 bit sp3, lubuntu stats are lubuntu 13.04 32bit, ram 2.5 gb, cpu intel core 2 duo 1.86 ghz 1.87 ghz, motherboard type is asus p5nsli, and hardrive space partitioned for lubuntu is 30 gb out of 640 gb

SOURCE: Updating bios, iBuddie A900, Ubuntu.

Go to bootdisk.com and download Driver Free Disk For Bios Flashing. Click the link #1 next to it. It is right there on the front of the page. After that throw a floppy drive in your pc. Run the program I made you download after inserting a floppy. It will create a floppy image. Then take another floppy and copy the 2 bios files you got from the manufacturer ( the exe and the bin file) and copy them to the second floppy. Now boot the pc from the first floppy. Once it says A:\ pop the floppy out and switch it. Dos will continue to run from your system ram. Now make sure the second disk is in. Run the exe in dos. Then once in the exe. enter the name of the bin file. Remember to include the file extension. Back up your original bios file if it gives you the option. It will copy it onto your floppy just incase your new bin file is corrupt. Then you can use this process again if everyting is screwed. Do as the prog says and it will do the rest. Enjoy!

SOURCE: Gigabyte Motherboard wont flash bios

your bios has been corrupted.

The AWARD BIOS has a similar procedure to AMI. To recover an AWARD BIOS you will need to create a bootable floppy diskette and add the desired BIOS file (we recommend using the most recent). Award BIOS's generally are in .BIN format, where as AMI was .ROM format. You will also add an AWARD flash utility (usually awdflash.exe) and an AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

The AWARD BIOS does not automatically restore the BIOS information to the 'system block' like the AMI BIOS does. You will need to add the commands necessary to flash the BIOS in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. The system will run the AUTOEXEC.BAT file, which contains the flash instructions.

Note: 12345678.BIN represents the name of your BIOS.

Step by Step:
1. Create a bootable floppy diskette or bootable dos cd /usb drive
2. Copy the BIOS file and flash utility to the disk
3. Create an text file with any standard text editor and add the following lines

@ECHO OFF
awdflash 12345678.BIN /py/sn/f/cc/r

Exchange the awdflash with the name of whatever flash utility you are using, and replace the 12345678.BIN with the name of the BIOS file you are using. The parameters are explained here:

py = program yes
sn = save no
f = flash
cc = clear cmos
r = reboot

Remove disk and restart computer

Can I override the bios at startup so that it will recognize a new hard drive - for linux?


There should be no need to play around with your bios settings. Linux will install on a brand new hard drive as the sole operating system, or on an existing hard drive alongside Windows without any problem.

If you haven't already got a Linux distro, have a look at
http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop

Download whichever version of Ubuntu you prefer (LTS- the long term support version is recommended).

When the .iso file containing the operating system had downloaded, burn it onto a dvd, or install it on a usb drive.

Insert the dvd into the drive and restart or switch off/switch on the computer. The dvd will then kick in and offer you the choice of trying Ubuntu without installing, or a full install.

If you're using a new, empty hard drive just follow the on screen instructions and Ubuntu will install as the sole operating system.

If you already have Windows on your hard drive Ubuntu will give you the choice of either erasing Windows or installing Ubuntu alongside Windows. It's your choice.

Installing Ubuntu alongside Windows creates a dual boot hard drive. At start up you just choose which OS to use - Windows or Ubuntu. If creating this dual-boot system Ubuntu puts a (Linux) boot loader into the Windows OS so that Linux is recognised.

If you save the Ubuntu file to a usb drive you then have to change the bios settings so that your computer uses USB as the first boot device. Then restart your computer so that it boots in from your usb .. and Ubuntu will begin installing.

Whichever you use - dvd or usb - during the installation process Ubuntu will ask you how many GB of hard drive space it should use? You do not need to physically partition the hard drive. Linux will do it for you.

If it's a desktop PC you are using with Windows on the first hard drive and are fitting a second hard drive to install Linux on, or have installed Linux on the second hard drive .. and find that Linux doesn't appear at start up, it's because there's no Linux boot loader in Windows.

I quit using Windows many years ago.

I have an ASUS netbook that runs linux. I don't know linux, but was told to upgrade to ubuntu. I don't know how. Anyone know how?


1. I would suggest finding out which model Eee PC you are using and the hard drive size & type (4GB SSD, 160GB SATA, etc...). If you have less than 4GB, I would probably recommend using another Linux distro, as the Netbook Edition of Ubuntu is pretty heavy.

2. Next, I would probably suggest plugging in the Eee PC (Software/OS installation is very power intensive).

3. Download your distribution (Ubuntu Netbook Edition or Desktop, etc).

4. Download a copy of unetbootin for your PC (unetbootin.sourceforge.net -- There are Linux & Windows versions available.)

5. Using a USB thumb drive (USB Memory stick), you will want to wipe the drive (format using FAT/FAT32 filesystem).

6. Run Unetbootin, selecting the proper USB thumb drive & ISO image from the Ubuntu website.

7. After Unetbootin is finished, close it and safely disconnect the USB drive.

8. Next, plug the USB thumb drive into the Eee PC.

9. Turn on power to the Eee PC & after seeing the initial BIOS splash, hit the ESC key on the keyboard. This should bring up a boot selection screen. Using the arrow keys, select the appropriate USB drive and hit Enter (Return).

10. If all goes well, you should be running Ubuntu Desktop/Ubuntu Netbook Edition as a live desktop. (The installer is a link on the desktop.)

11. There are several step-by-step guides out there, so check them out, if needed. The installer should be very simple on this type of hardware, etc.

Good Luck!
