recently my harddrive failed so i swapped it with a spare i had lying around windows 7 was able to boot and install just fine, however ubuntu wont boot it will let me go to the options screen but after i select either try without installing or install i get a black screen with just being able to type, i let it sit for awhile and eventually the loading screen for 10.04 came up but only kept loading for about half an hour. i also tried a 9.04 disc i had lying around but had the same issue. both of these discs work on other rigs. any ideas?
