    No kernel


    I was trying to instal ubuntu again today, this time with the text installer. (Didn't work with the normal one.) It seemed to be working, until it got to istalling the base system. It get's to 78% and it comes up with an error, "No insalable kernel avalible." It gives me the option to continue and manually instal a kernal. I have no idea how to do this, so I was hoping someone could tell me what I was doing wrong. As far as I know, the CD is correct, any help would be great.

    Sounds like a few people have had this issue before third google result for ubuntu no installable kernel for example.
    I'd double check the media - there should be a check media integrity option at boot time. Also some have found the install fails but works if you try a couple of times.

    Thanks for the reply. I tried everything (as far as I could) in the other topic. Still not working. I burned another copy, but same error. Im going to download another image, see how that works. Thanks for the help though.

    I don't think burning another CD will help unless you know there is a problem with the CD you have. Check the media (should be an option when you boot from the CD).

    Ed: and try the install a couple of times with the same CD.

    You could probably just copy the kernel and modules and all from the live cd, at least to get the system to boot.
