Re: Please help ubuntu install
I would highly recommend a newer version of Ubuntu, at least 10.04 (Long-Term Support version) because the kernel is newer and has enhancements for the type of computer you're using.
When trying to boot from Uberstudent, you should be able to hold down the shift key while booting to get into a menu where you can select how to boot into Uberstudent. If you can get there, press e to edit the current boot option, then at the end of the line that looks something like this:
Type in (at the end): nomodeset
linux /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.35-24-generic root=UUID=b1b3afaf-07a9-4db1-90f6-6f65f3fb6860 ro quiet splash
Then press I believe its CTRL+X, it says at the bottom, to boot press _____
If that fails try: acpi=no
If both of those fail, let us know. I'm not sure what version of Ubuntu its based off of.
Where's [slooksterpsv] been? - I had Catastrophic partition alignment failure. I lost 90%+ of my data, and just now got it back fixed and working.
