    Problem in installing Ubuntu getting error message like “BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu7) Built-in shell”

    Hi,

    I'm quite new to Linux, so for that i don't have much knowledge about it. i trying to install Ubuntu 7.10 for desktop. But whenever I boot the disk and select “start or install Ubuntu” it comes up with message-

    BusyBox v1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3-5ubuntu7) Built-in shell
    Enter ‘help’ for a list of built-in commands.

    can anyone tell me what does this mean? i change my boot option i change Upbuntu steup copy but still i get this error. where should I go from here? help me.

    Do you get a Grub prompt or a grub menu?
    Try following things
    First things you have to Navigate the GRUB prompt during the starting dual boot.
    then start the Ultimate Edition OS
    press the E button (it's for Edit)
    Then Highlight the second line
    again press the E button
    Take out the quiet splash
    then type in all_generic_ide

    Then press "Return" and then press b-key form your keyboard. it will help you to executes a reboot, with the edited or modified information in the line (described above).
    after that you have to enter your passcode and you should see the desktop.

    For solving this problem you have to troubleshoot a bit here.
    first thing is you have to use a live CD of Ubuntu 7.10.
    after that open DOS prompt, and type
    c:\windows
    then type "win" using this the OS would splash its image & boot
    here are many builds for this "Debian 1:1.1.3" or the BusyBox application this is was needed to your computer.
    this will help you get the desktop display up.
    1) add your ubuntu system information with space
    2) then add second information
    3) after this process you get the positive help

    Try following things
    Boot system using LiveCD
    after boot screen Select F6 it's for getting more option.

    Add the following in options list:
    break=top
    then press Enter then system will start boot
    then Ubuntu will start booting,
    then you will see Command Prompt and then type following commands
    modprobe piix
    exit
    this will help you to solve your problem

    this message you get when your boot partition is less then 50 mb that time you get the error at grub setup
    after the installation complete do not reboot -- stay in the LiveCD
    then open Applications then click on Accessories then open Terminal

    then typing the following
    '/dev/hda1' with the install partition commands:
    then type following commands
    mkdir target
    sudo mount /dev/hda1 target

    if you had a boot partition issue then use following commands
    sudo mount /dev/hda2 target/boot
    sudo chroot target

    after that you will enter in "CHOORT" command prompt its for your new ubuntu system
    then you have to edit the /etc/initramfs-tools/modules file
    in that you have to adding a line using "piix" command
    for that type following commands
    echo piix >> /etc/initramfs-tools/modules
    after that you have to update the system using the command
    update-initramfs -u
    after completing this type "exit" it will help to take out of from "chroot"
    after that restart the system
    after booting you will be in Ubuntu system!
