i recently bought a new computer, and have been trying to install linux on it, 11.10 x64.

it is a HP pavilion dv6-6117dx.

2.4GHz/1.5GHz VISION A8 Technology from AMD with AMD Quad-Core A8-3500M Accelerated Processor


AMD Radeon HD 6620G Discrete-Class Graphics

preinstalled windows 7.

i am pretty sure i picked a unsupported graphics card or something.

i have tried booting from usb, and i have also tried "nomodeset' boot.

any idea would be welcome.
