Not able to install ubuntu

Jump to solution

Hi,

I updated the software (yocto, bios and FPGA) in my new Aero RTF. I try to follow the instruction in 90-(References)-OS-user-Installation in the wiki page, but the link to the ubuntu is wrong. I tried to install the latest ubuntu 18.04, but when booting at initial install process the aero reports multiple "stdin: I/O error" and then stops with "(0Initramfs) unable to find a medium containing a live file system" error. I found the ubuntu iso file that the instruction in the wikipage refers to, but still get the same error message. Is this error caused by the new BIOS image, or is there any steps that I miss?

Hello Jellybeanz,

 

 

Thank you for your interest in the Intel Aero Compute Board.

 

In regards to installing the Ubuntu image on the Aero board, you can access the link for the Ubuntu 16.04 image :

 

https://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/thank-you?country=US&version=16.04.3&architecture=amd64

 

Click "download now" and this should make the Ubuntu16.04 image available.

 

The Ubuntu 18.04 is not yet compatible with the Intel Aero Compute Board.

 

 

Let me know if this works.

 

Regards,

 

Casandra

Hello Casandra,

The download link that you're referring to gives a "404, not found" error. I searched for the file "ubuntu-16.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso" and found the link in ubuntu.com. But this version of ubuntu gives the same error. I've tried with different USB flash drives with the same result.

Hello Jellybeanz,

 

 

 

Have you tried flashing the BIOS, by following the following steps:

https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup# flashing-the-bios https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup# flashing-the-bios

Let me know if this helps?

 

 

Thank you,

Hello Casandra,

I flashed the Bios by following the instruction that you refer to. I removed the previous version (v1.00.13) and then installed the latest (v1.00.16). Actually, I followed the instruction in https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup 02 Initial Setup · intel-aero/meta-intel-aero Wiki · GitHub , including the calibration. I verified it by escaping during booting, read version 1.00.16. It is possible to flash the Aero linux distribution without any problem, but ubuntu can't be installed.

Hello Casandra,

- I followed the steps in https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup 02 Initial Setup · intel-aero/meta-intel-aero Wiki · GitHub and updated yocto, bios and FPGA, as I stated in my initial message.

- Then I begun to follow the instructions in https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/90-(References)-OS-user-Installation# os 90 (References) OS user Installation · intel-aero/meta-intel-aero Wiki · GitHub. In this instruction the link to the Ubuntu is broken. So I manually searched the ubuntu-16.04.3-desktop-amd64.iso file.

- I created a bootable disk using Win32 Disk Imager

- I plugged Intel Aero to the wall power supply, the USB-OTG adapter, bootable USB key, hub, and keyboard

- I entered the BIOS by hitting ESC

- I selected boot manager, selected the USB key and pressed Enter.

- In the menu I selected Install.

- In this stage ubuntu boot manager boots, and the error message STDIN: I/O error appears in the display multiple times. After about 1 minute with the error message appearing, booting fails with "(Initramfs) unable to find a medium containing a live file system". Tried multiple times with upgrading, burning the ubuntu image, rebooting etc.

Hello Jellybeanz,

 

 

 

From what I can see and what information I was able to find by researching the Ubuntu community, I think the USB key might be a problem. You can check out the following link for more information on this: https://askubuntu.com/questions/15425/error-when-installing-unable-to-find-a-medium-containing-a-liv...

 

 

I would suggest trying with a different USB key.

 

 

Let me know how it works.

 

 

Regards,

Actually I found the same link when searched for a solution. I tried different USB flash drivers with the same result. I even tried with some old USB 2.0 compatible flash drives and some newer USB 3.0 compatible drives with exact the same result.

Hello Casandra,

(I think) I found the problem. I used a keyboard with an 1-port passive USB HUB inside, and connected the USB flash drive to this port. When I tried an other active USB HUB I was able to install the ubuntu. The strange thing is that there wasn't any error messages indicating over-current or similar problems, and I was able to install the yocto from the same USB port, but not ubuntu.

Hello Jellybeanz,

 

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

From what I understand, the passive USB Hub port was to blame. Is that correct?

 

Is everything working now, were you able to install Ubuntu?

Hello Casandra,

Yes, I was able to install ubuntu now. The aero board reported "stdin: I/O error" a couple of times, but suddenly ubuntu installation screen is appeared. Now the aero board is running ubuntu.
