    I did some more research and realized I was using partclone's inefficient dd copy method for unspported filesystems.

    You can help though by teaching me how to set nomodesetting on my existing install so I can boot into it! :)

    [SOLVED] Re: Can't install 12.04 x64

    Yes it did. Now I see my Minimal CD install in my hard drive. Can I set nomodesetting to be the default and ressurect it?

    Should I get in, update to restricted, then reinstate modesetting?

    Same problem, down to the 1152 x 864 resolution. I'm using an R300 card as well. Neither Vesa works correcty (low resolution on my 1680 x 1050 monitor) nor does fglrx.

  12. [ubuntu] Re: Ati Radeon HD 2400 XT & Resolutions

    First check out 'Hardware Drivers' in System -> Administration. Install the drivers through there.

    Once you got that done (restart), go to System -> Preferences -> Screen Resolution.

    Good luck

    I really think there's something wrong with the Radeon drivers.
