    Angry Problems Installing Ubuntu 10.10 on Toshiba A665D-S6051

    Community! I'm a new user here and I'm trying to be a new Ubuntu User.

    Today an Ubuntu 10.10 official CD arrived to my house and I tried to install it on my new Toshiba laptop (http://us.toshiba.com/computers/lapt...60/A665D-S6051), but a problem accurred..

    I insert the CD, boot from that.... the language selector appears, select one, then I choose Install UBUNTU but a black screen appears with only a underline flashing...
    It stays over 10 minuts...

    Even if I choose another option like Try UBUNTU without install the same problem occurs

    I hope someone helps me... I'm really interested in become an Ubuntu User


    Notes: There's a Windows 7 Professional 32-bits in my laptop... but 4 partitions exist... 2 in NTFS (Windows' C and D), 1 in FAT32 (to shared files) and 1 unformatted to install UBUNTU

    PD: I'm learning English so please excuse my wrong grammar.

    Try the alternate installer which doesn't have a GUI, just a command line interface for the install.

    Re: Problems Installing Ubuntu 10.10 on Toshiba A665D-S6051

    Thanks a lot!! I'll try it... but now I have a question...

    Use the i386.iso or amd64.iso image, is it the same? My laptop has a amd x64 processor but I prefer to use x86 systems... is there any problem if I use the i386.iso image? could be this the problem?

    Re: Problems Installing Ubuntu 10.10 on Toshiba A665D-S6051

    That shouldn't be a problem.
    One thing I have noticed with a lot of Toshibas is that they need boot options (such as acpi=off, or other acpi related option) quite often.
    Also, what graphics card are you using?

    Ummm I don't know anything about it.. (acpi)

    About my laptop's Graphic Card

    AMD M880G Chipset with ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4250 Graphics
    with 256MB-1917MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory
    You can see all information related with my laptop model on http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/cont...665D-S6051.pdf

    wow... I downloaded the Alternate CD i386 to try to install UBUNTU again...
    Unfortunately the same problem occurs...

    I don't know why the CD's can not continue the installation...!

    Anybody can help me, please?

    When booting from the live cd have you tried selecting "try ubuntu" rather than "install ubuntu"?
    What happens then?

    I had a similar problem with my Toshiba A135.

    When you boot the CD, hit any key at the keyboard image (little rectangle = man in circle). Then click F6 for Other Options. Check off the following options: acpi=off, noapic, nolapic and nomodeset.

    That should at least get you on your way.

    See http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...0#post10089820 for additional instructions.

    @Quackers I get the same response for each option... (try ubuntu, install it,...)

    @TomSerato I'm gonna try it... I hope it works for me too

    Thanks everybody

    /// RESULTS //

    I'm following your advice and all seems very well... I might change the post status to SOLVED in a moment

    Thanks again!!

    // FINALLY //

    The installation finished succesfuly. My computer restarts and the select menu appears.. I select the first option to run UBUNTU but the underline in the dark screen appears again.

    I'm very dissapointed... What do you think is happening?

    OK, I've seen some post that seems to show the same problem and I noted that is very useful use de Boot Info Script.. so I've used it.
