Subject description: Full HD Installation
 

Dear Don Sir
As suggested by you Sir when fdisk command run in the command line, I got following result. No disk identifier

fdisk -l /dev/sda9
Disk /dev/sda9: 19.5 GiB, 20971520000 bytes, 40960000 sectors
Units: sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes

How to get disk identifier/Id

rameshiyer, it appears you don't have UEFI which would be why Barry's installation method won't work. Try instead Easy Frugal Installation.

If you just want to test Easy can you boot from USB? It may be worth it to try out from USB to see if you like it before installing to HD. USB also makes changing the BOOT_SPECS much easier.

Yes to Cu Chulinux

I think I was giving out the wrong page link. Yours is better for old computer.

http://bkhome.org/easy/easy-frugal-installation.html

___________________________________________________--

Hard disks have two identity numbers. The one that BarryK uses in boot specs file is found with fdisk,


universally unique identifier (UUID) is used by grub4dos. To find it use the 'blkid' command.


Explained here...

Version 0.9.1 is out:

http://bkhome.org/news/201805/easyos-pyro64-version-091.html

I think, next, the time has come to bump the Ubuntu build to packages from the latest LTS release, 18.04, Bionic Beaver.

...so, expect an Easy Beaver soon!

Subject description: Will not boot
 

Dell Laptop, Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU M 380 @2.53 2.53
Ram 4.00 GB, Product ID 00326-10000-00000-AA726, 64 Bit
Windows 10 upgrade from Win 7

I downloded EasyOS, latest edition by following instructions on BKhome.org

Installed on USB drive. I booted my main computer, no problems, so I know the install is good.

When trying to boot to my Dell laptop , it starts OK, then gets stalled at "getting files ready" stage.

I've tried a couple times, left it for hours, but it never finishes.

Full disclosure; I have used other puppy/wolf distros a little, but I am a true novice. No coding experience. Simply want to make my old computer a little livelier.

What means "this computer"? another, older computer?
What do you do? Do you try to boot from usb as well?

A note to clear up a previous mistake

Explained Here

Frome BarryK instructions

Quote:
Easy supports a frugal install to a partition with a Linux filesystem. Not a fat or ntfs filesystem!

Anyone with a bit of interest in Linux is likely to have created a partition with Linux filesystem (usually ext2, ext3, or ext4) on their hard drive. if not, check it out, it is easy-peasy to create one.




When installing in an old BIOS machine with a hard drive ---> BOOT_FS and WKG_FS must be the SAME . Here is my boot specs file for easy 0.7


Quote:

BOOT_DISKID='0x0008f77a'
BOOT_PARTNUM=1
BOOT_FS='ext3'
BOOT_DIR='easy/easy-0.7/'
WKG_DISKID='0x0008f77a'
WKG_PARTNUM=1
WKG_FS='ext3'
WKG_DIR='easy/easy-0.7/'
Q_DISTRO_VERSION=0.7

"this computer" is the one listed in the post. Booted from same usb drive as used for my main PC as explained in post.

Edited original post for clarification. Very Happy

@halpad, it is possible that when you booted the USB on your "main computer" it saved settings for that computer. Now it may be searching for non-existent hardware or partitions (not likely) on your Dell.

I'm not sure if there is a "pristine boot" option in the menu like booting puppy's without savefile. You could delete (or rename) the .session directory from the USB root. The .session directory is the Easy equivalent of a savefile.

Or boot to commandline (hit tab when menu appears) if you can and then run xorgwizard and see if changing video card helps. I find modesetting works really well on my laptop. YMMV

I don't know what you mean by "getting files ready" stage.

Interpreting your post, you booted Easy on the USB drive, on your main computer. Yes?

Then you tried to boot the same USB drive on your Dell laptop, and it stopped partway through the boot. Is that correct?

What is the last message on the screen where it stops?

Yes, there is a "pristine boot" option. Hit the TAB key when the boot menu displays, there is a sub-menu, one of which is "Rollback" -- that actually wipes the entire .session folder (the read/write layer), which means that it will be a pristine bootup.

...that is for bootup on UEFI machines. On older BIOS-firmware machines, the "Rollback" menu entry is in the main menu, no need to hit the TAB key.

The reason for the difference in menus is because booting on a BIOS PC, syslinux is used, booting on UEFI, refind boot manager is used.
