Live USB on Dell Mini 1012 producing an error on boot...
June 22, 2010 10:28PM
Hi folks, Just joined and this is my first question in your fine forum.

I bought a Dell Mini 1012 for the express purpose of installing Elive 2.0 on it as it's principal OS. I made a live USB of Elive and ran it on my old Dell Inspiron 700m laptop, where it loaded and ran perfectly. When running it on the new Mini 1012, the USB goes through the entire boot up sequence and ultimately fails at a point where it gives me a graphical system error. The error is as follows:

Problem running the Graphical System
(EE) No devices detected

It then sends me to a screen titled "Graphical System Finished" which gives me the following options:

* Start X - Restart your graphical session
* reconfigure - reconfigure your graphical system and launch it
* install - Install Elive in your computer
* console - Boot login console
* reboot - reboot your computer
* shutdown - shutdown your computer

I chose "reconfigure your graphical system and launch it" and reset the screen resolution manually to 1024x600; hit ok and got the same error.

The hardware specs on the machine are as follows:

* Processor: Intel Atom Processor N450 (1.66GHz, 512K L2 Cache)
* RAM: 1 GB DDR2 SDRAM 800MHz (1 DIMM)
* HD: 160GB SATA Hard Drive (5400RPM)
* Video: Intel NM10 Express
* Network Card: Dell 1397 802.11B/G Wireless Mini Card
* 6 Cell Primary Battery
* 10.1 inch Widescreen Display (1024x600)

If anyone has any idea what could be going on and how I might go about solving this I would appreciate it greatly. I REALLY loved Elive on my tests and think it woud be perfect on this machine, if I can get it running.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I am having exactly the same problem. My machine is homebuilt, but is also running an Atom D450, with 1Gb RAM, INTEL Pinecrest integrated video.
