Hey guys, I need help(for the third time this week, a record perhaps?).

So I've got linuxcoin installed on my USB drive. Now I just need to boot the damn thing. Simple, no? WRONG!

Whenever I boot from the USB the computer just sits at the loading screen with the infinity sign. The infinity sign just moves around forever. I left it sit for 10 minutes once.

This is what I stare at for 10 minutes.


Any help would be appreciated! Get your fellow miner up and running! Or not, keep your precious difficulty level low. Tongue

Okay, so I got the computer naked, telling me all of its secrets. Tongue

It paused at this position for about a whole minute.


Then some code flashed across the screen for about 30 seconds. And I mean some matrix shit was going on. My computer was dodging creeper explosions and falcon punches left and right.

Then I arrived at this screen. It allowed to punch some well known commands onto the screen.(e.g. fuck you, boot!) I was completely astonished that these commands produced some errors.

Did you check the md5 of your download ? Looks like a corrupt ISO.

I did some hardcore googlin' and I figured out how to get a MD5 Checksum. The Checksum for the ISO that I installed onto the USB drive is 7999F02BFE7085100B48C5534ADD62D7.

Is that correct?

From what I can see it's struggling to find the persistent media or filesystem. That would suggest that the ISO or install is corrupt. How did you install ? Can you burn & boot from a CD/DVD ? Your MD5 is correct.

I used unetbootin-windows-555.exe.

I cannot burn and boot from any other media. I don't have any of it with me currently. Sad

I'm going to try and reinstall linuxcoin following your youtube video to the "T".

Reinstalling results in the same thing. It stops at the screen telling me I can type "help" for a list of commands. It's probably my BIOS settings as I don't believe it's the installation. So do you know of any BIOS settings that would interfere with LinuxCoin?

Please someone help me troubleshoot this issue.

I experienced this exact same problem after doing a bunch of experimental "sudo aticonfig"ing ...

The only fix I know of is to reinstall the OS and persistence file on your usb drive and start from scratch.  Hopefully you don't have much BTC in your wallet on that usb drive... if you do, find another linux box and maybe copy the wallet file onto there.

I lost 0.05BTC because of this situation.  :-(

Did you create the persistence file ?

I am selling in stock OneStringMiner boards, based on the Bitfury chips. Have a look here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=495536.0

Thanks for trying to help. Cheesy

It was my understanding the newest version of unetbootin installed the persistence file along with LinuxCoin. I specified a 1024MB persistence in the appropriate field.

Am I wrong? If so, your reply is probably my solution.
