    Exclamation Can't Install Ubuntu 11.10

    I have tried using both a CD and a USB and both the official file from the website and a torrent. But every time I tried to install, after it shows the purple ubuntu loading screen, the screen goes haywire with like different colored squares and then freezes. It doesn't do that with my 10.04 disk. Can someone explain or offer advice.

    You might want to give the Alternative Install CD a try. That should let you do a text-based install, which may work for you if the CD is just having a problem with your graphics hardware. Even if you succeed in installing but can't get the desktop up, it may give more information on your problem.

    If you really want to go back to Windows, that's OK, but remember that there are other distros like Debian and Fedora
    Say no to Microsoft. Say yes to open source.

    Are you using a capital letter or number to start your user name? I believe the installer will fail if so. Same problem with encrypting the home folder.

    I can't even get to that part, right after the loading screen is when it fails

    perhaps you could try to install a previous version of ubuntu and then upgrade to the recent version?? Worked for me
