ZorinOs Lite 12.4 - Ubuntu Start Screen ? - Big mess booting

ZorinOs Lite 12.4 - Ubuntu Start Screen ? - Big mess booting

Postby pcfan5 » Sun Aug 26, 2018 3:48 pm

Hello The most Strange thing is happening, I have dowloaded Ubuntu latest version just to see how it was, put it into an USB live with "multisystem", then erased it with the same program, dowloaded ZorinOS Lite 12.4 , and when I tried to boot , it shows me the start screen of Ubuntu 18, I formated in FAT 32 , charged all the ISO's again , startin this time with Zorin Lite 12.4 , and I have the same problem. I have dowloaded the image of Zorin from the official site , twice.

The USB pen drive has two fat 32 partitions, it is 16 GB , I have 12 B for the "multisystem" whole thing and 3 gb for data. (this last partition was also formated in fat32), The rest of the ISO's boots fine. So....how come my Zorin Lite 12.4 is stacked with the Ubuntu starting screen, after this an error is shown, it is related to not having removed the device saftly, but now it is formated... I don't understand :o :?

Hi, something could have gone wrong with the thumb drives' boot partition? Run your zorin install, install gparted (as most distributions remove it after the OS is installed to prevent errors by users with not much understanding), run 'gparted' after you have installed the thumb drive to your machine - I would delete all partitions so that there is nothing left (after backing up any essential stuff) then re-format to FAT32 and install MultiSystem afresh. ;) :D

ah jajaaj we have the same thought, and so I did , and I put ZorinOS 12.4 as the only image in the USB pendrive, with multisystem, it still starts with a screen ubuntu 16.04 (I am sorry I said it wrong before because I associated with the Ubuntu version I have downloaded earlier) , this is strange since I am able to boot without problems in Virtual Box from the ISO itself.

I have been using gparted and multisystem from LMint, I have dowloaded the ISO in that computer.

Here is a sample, at the begining it says "Busy Box"...

You have to remember that Zorin is a fork of Ubuntu so you will get something of Ubuntu showing up at some point or other - see if the 'fsck' commands stated here help:

yes, I thought the same. I think here I have a problem with the compatibility between the ISO and the way it is converted/adapted to the USB live, I don't have another pendrive to try with a different program , just like the one suggested in the zorin site Thank you for the link I will try the sugestions given there, altough the second one seems too difficult for me
The only way I have to boot in USBlive mode is in Zorin 12.3 I also have gparted install in my PC system, I mention this just in case it is of any use, altough I understand it would be better to run gparted from usblive.

Do you thing it is an issue with the pendrive or with the ISO? I have another 3 images in it (after I delete the partition al format it to fat 32) , and they all work.

It could be the pen drive - I had some issues trying to get OzDiamondBII to install to my MultiSystem disk recently but finally got it working. I've had some issues with the stick in work Notebooks in not getting picked up, or seemed like it, so you remove it, then insert in a Windows machine that reports errors. I had to use MultiSystem on my Zorin install to clean up the GRUB. If you have gparted installed then use that - you don't have to use a live usb for gparted - just ensure you recognise which disk/usb you are looking at before using gparted. ;) :D

Hi, thank you for your kind replay as alwasy, I have tried with this option from the link you post here e2fsck -f -y -v -C 0 /dev/sdaX, the first ones where very difficult to me as I don't know how to use terminal very well.

In fact I tried with the first one , and both gave me errors related to ext2 /ext4 , my pendrive is in fat32. I wonder why this error with ZorinOs 12.4 , since I have ZorinOS 12.3 in the same pendrive and I boot into it without trouble....

I don't know what else to do. I have already deleted the partitions, formated in fat32, verified fsck from gparted, could this be a problem in the ISO?, I don't want to mess up any longer with my pendrive, I am afraid I could spoil it.

Should I reinstall "mutisystem"?

If there is anycomand I should write , please I would like to ask if you could write it here,pleae. My device is /dev/sdc1

If you reinstalll multisystem from the tarball I posted, hopefully it will pick up the usb drive, ask you to identify which one you want MultiSystem to install to and it will overwrite your existing GRUB with a new one - try that first. Remember, thumb/usb drives have a limited shelf life as they use the same technology as SSD's continuous writing to same will eventually end its life sooner rather than later. ;) :D

Hi, thanks!. Where did you post taht tarball?.
I haven't have any issues with the version I have already installed. I have put 3 different ISO's + Zorin12.4, this is the only one that doesn't work.
Pendrive is new. Bought it this year.

It's an old version but will update after you put your password in the terminal.
