    Angry Installation issue of Ubuntu 11.10

    Hi there! I have tryed installing Ubuntu 11.10 for many times (any version of dist), but always got the same result - screen is out, so I can not see any boot menu of the installer. It looks like you have some color stripes on it and after a few seconds a screen is turning off. I've even tryed the alternate install - it work fine, but when I've got to load a first log-in session - the same effect appeared (screen off); When I tryed the safe-mode - it just hangs on the select menu of it. Previous Ubuntu versions worked fine, beside the 11.04 - by safe-mode I installed the propriate drivers.
    By the way - I have tryed other linuxes (newest) - almost the same result.

    Does anyone know some way to install new Ubuntu with workable graphics?

    My hardware:
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i3 CPU 540
    Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. H55M-S2V
    RAM - 4GB
    AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series

    Look in the Problems sticky file.

    I remember, only because I have NVidia and not ATI, that ATI can cause graphics problems.

    There is a list of things to do for ATI Graphics cards.

    Apart from that, system seems fine, are you using 32 Bit or 64 bit system?? as well.

    Here is a troubleshooting guide which may help:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting

    Many are successful in loading Ubuntu by adding nomodeset as grub kernel boot parameter.

    I have a long win 7 x64; I've tryed both OS types (x86 & x64) - same effect. I can see workable grub (after install), but my problem is that I can not see anything on the installation (after I see keeboard and a man pictures on the purple screen).

    first remove /etc/X11/xorg.conf if it exist, and try nomodeset

    Question Re: Installation issue of Ubuntu 11.10

    dino99, what did you mean by that? Delete it from existing OS?
    I have installed Win7 and Ubuntu 10.10 along side (I want to erase 10th and install 11.10).

    Boot with the live cd and immediately on the first purple screen, hit Esc. That should show you the older type text menu.
    With the Try Ubuntu option highlighted, hit 'e' for editing the boot lines.
    Move with the arrows keys to position the cursor in the line starting with linux, and before 'quiet splash' add radeon.modeset=0

    Press Ctrl + X to boot. If that works and boots you in live mode, let us know.
    Darko.

    Unhappy Re: Installation issue of Ubuntu 11.10

    darkod, it was not successful, but I've install with nomodeset. But when I try to load first OS session (after install) got same problem. I tryed safemod - got menu and turned off keyboard, but active mouse (lighted up). That safemode is hanged up - ctrl+alt+printsrc+b did work. Not sure what to do now...
