Bug Description

The state of play as posted on the forums at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1136341

Trying to install 9.04 on a foxconn 945G7MD-8EKRS2H. So far no go with the following installs.

kubuntu/ubuntu : i368 : Bug int 14 CR2 ffffb0f0

Kubuntu/ubuntu : amd64 : PANIC: early exception 0e rip 10: ffffffff80226a93 error 0 cr2 ffffffffff5fc0f0

looked at the following bug report seems it may have something to do with the issue. Unsure myself.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/312554 [Now confirmed by Felix Geyer that he has no issues with RC and Final builds of Ubuntu on his ASUS P5QL-Pro]

Tried new beta of opensuse just as it had 2.6.29 fails saying not enough memory for the kernel. think this maybe a clue hoping someone more versed in kernels can tell me

installed from usb flash with kubuntu 9.04 i386 alternative. installed ok. fails on boot more info this time.

Problem solved. Seems it's a settings bug. I haven't been able to reproduce it (setting maybe a ghost one). But to solve issue.

Update BIOS (to the latest)
Clear CMOS
Check Boot (Make sure it also goes into OS)
Re-enter BIOS settings

Hope it helps others if they have an issue similar.

I have the same problem on Asus P4T533-C with latest bios.
The only difference is that I can't have dual boot, hard disk always has higher priority.

affects: ubuntu → linux (Ubuntu)

MyDoom, So your saying you can't boot into linux if you have 2 drives one with linux one without? If that's so then switch the drives so the linux one is first and then change the grub entry to also point to your windows install.

Apoorv have you tried resetting the CMOS after you installed the latest BIOS? also a list of BIOS settings would help mainly the ones for Hard drive and CPU and Memory. Cheers.

I used the "Load fail safe default values" in the BIOS Setup and now I can boot smoothly....................cheers

Also affects ECS EVEm v1.1 motherboard with PhoenixBIOS. Failed a BIOS upgrade. Will try recovery procedures, and advise whether the upgrade solved the problem.

Mmm.. Have a problem with mine as well. I'm getting the Kernel Panic issue, with the motherboard MSI 945p Neo3. I have cleared my CMOS with no luck. I will update if I find any way to fix it.

  Hi!! Glad you guys were working on this. I tried to use Update Manager, and it hosed the system. I tried all of the other installs with the same results. I was getting the same output error message as the above Image 007.jpg
  I solved mine by resetting the BOIS using the safe setting and tweaking the boot order. No bios updates available for the board Abit KV8 Pro ver 1.0

  Its alive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Just a note.. had to enable USB support on motherboard for the mouse and keyboard. Now everything works.

I may have the solution to this issue

Disable the legacy bios setting "memory hole 15 to 16Mb"

For some reason my new ASUS P5QC had it enabled. I could not boot the 2.6.28-15-generic kernel on a Ubuntu system just upgraded from 8.04LTS > 8.10 > 9.04

 Disabling the "memory hole 15 to 16Mb" setting solved the problem on this system. Interestingly enough even through I could boot the older Kernel I could not use the CPU frequency adjustment tool untill after I disabled the memory hole setting.

Now all works fine..

Had the same issue with a DFI Infinity Ultra-II. Updated to the most recent BIOS dated 2008-02-12 using the CD-ROM method in the forums HOWTO. Still got a kernel panic until I went into the BIOS and did a "Load Safe Settings".
Following successful boot, I went back into the BIOS and re-enabled the LAN and USB keyboard.

Hi The,

This bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/lucid.

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 366587

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.
