    Question Cannot install Toshiba Satellite L755-S5368

    Has anyone been able to install Onieric Ocelot or any Ubuntu release on a Toshiba Satellite L755-S5368?

    Trying to install from CD leads nowhere; although the BIOS is configured to boot from the ODD, the CD spins and then Windows 7 boots from hard drive - the Ubuntu distro on the CD never seems to display or run? This is a 64 bit system - so I tried the 64 bit OS download.

    Wubi doesn't work either; lots of error messages in the log.

    Please help; save me from the heartbreak of running Windows.

    Not the same problem. I can boot and install the 32 bit version; but with the 64 bit version it never seems to load. Maybe a boot loader issue?

    Solution found.

    CD installation worked for 32 bit, not for 64 bit version of 11.10.

    Found and installed a firmware update.

    Burned another 64 bit CD; that didn't work.

    Made a 64 bit USB install; that worked.
