The memory is good, is two 128MBs. I have an HDDwith Win2000 on it and took it out to make sure for the new 200GB media center.

when windows and the old hdd was running in that box, everything worked good.

I have a dvd drive and a dvdRW drive. I tried booting from either drive and still get the same problem.

I don't know what else to check or change.

What can it be?

Thanks teedge77 but I can't check the grub or the menu.lst file because I haven't been able to install anything.

The DVD is trying to do something that my machine don't have or is something that it doesn't like.

And yes, I responding to what someone said, I think 256MB is not the greatest but should at least be enough to get me through the install.

Any other thoughts are always welcome.

thanks ya!

Thanks, although I didn't see any memory nor any system requirements anywhere.

As soon as I boot from the CD or DVD I get this:

BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-2ubuntu3) Built-in shell (ash)
Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

Followed by the error message I already described. This all happens as soon as I turned the PC on and try to boot from the cd or dvd.

I have a blank hdd and except from the memory I can't think of anything else that could cause this issue.

Thanks for the link, I saw it and again it didn't tell me how to fix the problem, so I ignored it. I don't know if you read it but there is no solution on that thread.

I will buy more memory and try again.

I don't think is the video card, would it? I have an ATI Radeon 7500 with 128MB of memory.

Where can I look this error up so I can be 100% sure before I incur the cost of buying new memory?


I get this error message after I burned the DVD and tried to install it. I tried the CDs, even Kubuntu 0704 and nothing works. I have a P4 with 256MB Rambus Memory and 200GB of space. I don't get it, why is this MCE so bloody hard to install?

 /bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off (initramfs) [36.520000] ATA2.01: failed to set xfermode (err_mask=0x40)

The hdd is new and good, so is the pentium4 and the memory.

please shed some light this way...
