Hi.
I tried to install Ubuntu 8.10(amd64) on a brand new computer but after the language selection and a few minutes of the progessbar growing, the screen turns white, the CD stopps turning and nothing happens.
I have run the "check cd" option without any error.
When I tried to start from the CD without installing, it stopps after about the same time but with a black screen.

The computer Im trying to get Ubuntu on is:
AMD Phenom II x4 920
MSI K9A2 CF Mainboard
ATI Radeon HD 4870

Any idea or is it hopeless since I dont even get to a point where I could adjust something?

Thanks in advance,
Beinrich.

Try F4 (Safe Graphics Mode) at the initial screen to see if it even boots/runs from the CD.
