I'm trying to install Linux MCE LiveCD (Ubuntu 8.x or 10.x) on my EeeBox PC. After the DVD boots the operating system all menu options fail because it cannot recognize the DVD drive.
ASUS EeeBox EB1033. 32GB SSD. 4GB RAM
Rosewill external DVD with USB 3 interface
- Burned and tried both the 8.x and 10.x versions of the stable release.
- Set BIOS to represent SATA drives as IDE
- Tried command line boot options
ddto zero the SSD from the BusyBox prompt
Searches seem to indicate this bug has been around a while. There might be an unstable version 12.x MCE. Did the issue get fixed with Ubuntu 12.04?
