Media not found - kernel missing the drivers [Solved]

Post by deneb_ja » Wed Mar 10, 2010 12:38

Good morning,
I am quite new with Linux in general and Sabayon in particular, therefore forgive me if I say something silly.

I have a Lenovo X301 with Matshita UJ-844 DVD. I would like to have a triple boot with Windows 7 64 BIT, OpenSuse 11.2 64 BIT and Sabayon 5.1 r1 (32 bit).

No problem in installing both Windows and OpenSuse, but when it comes to Sabayon, at the moment the laptop bios pass control to the Sabayon kernel, I receive the message: 'Media not found, Could not find CD to boot.

I tried with the previos Sabayon version [5.0] on the same laptop and it doesn't work either, while both version install easily on another [older] laptop, like Lenovo X60

My impression is that the kernel is missing the drivers for the Matshita DVD. Any suggestion?

I thought about putting the installation DVD on a USB pen and try to boot from the pen and install from there, but I do not know exactly how to create a bootable USB pen with Linux.

Any advice is more than welcome.

thanks 1K

HI,

to create the bootable usb stick you can use unetbootin. It is very easy to use. http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/

Great smb96,
thanks a billion!

Unetbootin worked very nicely and I managed to finalise my triple boot with Sabayon 5.1.
