Hello,


I am trying to boot LL 4.2 using USB key on a Dell Dimension C521 running Windows Vista (this old PC is owned by a family's member).


But I got a message  telling me to specify "noapic" for boot.


There is no option in setup to do that.


I had a look on files on USB key but didn't find any "config" file to do that.


I would appreciate if anyone know a way to specify this option at boot time.


Many thanks in advance.

If you're using the Live boot, did you try Start Linux Lite in Safe Mode?

Hi Jerry,

I use live boot from USB Key (it's OK on another PC).
I will use Safe Mode ASAP and let you know shat happens.

Hi Jerry,

It's OK to boot in safe mode from USB key, I just got a message "Print-req_error  I/O error, dev Fd0 sector 0".
LL running OK.
I did installation process to install LL on HDD, everything working fine during installation process.....but sytem was locked after booting, nothing on the screen.

Don't spend time on this problem, this PC is old. I have some more recents   an I will give one of them to the user.

Thanks a lot. I really appreciate LL and right now, I have installed  it on 8 PC's of friends and family, all like it !

You can just add noapic to the grub of that pc so it works permanently:

Code: [Select]
sudo leafpad /etc/default/grub
Code: [Select]
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash noapic noapci"
Code: [Select]
sudo update-grub
