    Like this ? and then i press F10 to start ? It doesn't work, it say "impossible to find the command nomodeset"


    If i remove quiet and splash it just open a terminal asking my login

    Can you start the desktop from the prompt with the:

    Code:
    startx
    command?

    your system is already broken, you should take a bit risk and try to upgrade through installation disk. upgrade option is active in the beta2 desktop, I successfully upgraded my 12.04 system that way and it is working flawlessly.
    core i3, 4gb ram, OCZ agility 3 ssd ,ati radeon -- ubuntu 13.04
    acer aspire 4752 -, ubuntu 12.10


    Faith is miraculous if it is accompanied by dedicated efforts

    are you sure of what you say? because of i think that my system is allready upgraded at 12.10, so i don't think that getting an upgrade from a DVD probably older will change anything.

    What do you mean by "Beta2 desktop ?"

    at grub menu, choose the recovery mode, then select "repair" (dont remember exactly what is written, might be the second line)

    It says that Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal is allready present on the computer and ask me to install it beside, not to upgrade.
    And i can just "try Ubuntu whithout installing" or "Install Ubuntu", i can not "Repair"
