Can't install 4.1.10 x64 in Dell D620

Question

Hi, I'm new on Bodhi Linux. I'm trying to install version 4.1.10 on my Dell D620. I've created a bootable usb stick with Unetbootin, booted from usb and no matter which option I choose, it shows the logo, and leaves me in the shell:

 

BusyBox v.1.22.1 (Ubuntu 1:1.22-0-15ubuntu1) built-in shell (ash)

Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

 

(initramfs)

 

If I select UEFI Boot Bodhy Linux Live Disc, shows the following error

 

BusyBox v.1.22.1 (Ubuntu 1:1.22-0-15ubuntu1) built-in shell (ash)

Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands.

 

(initramfs)

mount: mounting /dev/loop0 on //filesystem.squashfs failed: Invalid argument

Can not mount /dev/loop0 (/cdrom/casper/filesystem.squashfs) on //filesystem.squashfs

 

Is there something wrong I'm doing? Thanks in advance for your help

Does it work if you create the drive using the dd command as opposed to unetbootin?

Welcome to the forums.

 

Which version of unetbootin did you use?  The version in the ubuntu repos is rather old and seems to have issues. Last time I used the stable version (625) available on sourceforge and the usb-stick worked perfectly.

 

Enjoy,

Charles

Yes, that's the version I've used. I was able to install linuxmint (w/cinnamon) and ubuntu (unity) without trouble. Perhaps there's no compatibility with the hardware of my old laptop?
