Installing 12.04 from USB stick
« on: September 13, 2014, 11:49:33 pm »
I downloaded the 12.04 version of LinuxMCE .iso and created a bootable USB drive with the installer in place.  When the installer starts up, I choose the Guided option to allow the installer to use the full disk as it pleases.  On the Timezone screen, I get these errors:

'ubi-partman failed with exit code 141...'

'ext4 file system creation in partition #1 of scsi1 (0,0,0) sda failed'

The system I'm trying to install on already has an Ubuntu installation on it - 14.04 LTS which seems perfectly happy, but I cannot get this one to actually access/write/partition the disks. 

Any tips are greatly appreciated.

System specs:

Zareason Breeze Server 5880s
i7-4790 3.6-4GHz
16GB DDR3-1600
2x2TB 7200 rpm drives currently configured as software RAID
2xGigabit Ethernet

I would install from a DVD, that is the intended install media.  The installer has not been tested to any extent with usb.  It is also possible that the hardware you are using is newer than the 1204 kernel can support.

I tried the DVD install of the 12.04 version and it also fails.  Just to make sure I could get something installed, I went back to the Ubuntu 14.04 LTS install DVD and it went fine.

Is there an alternate installation from a working 14.04 LTS?
