    Anyone sucessfully installed Ubuntu on ASUS Rampage IV Extreme

    Good morning all,

    I've been trying without any luck to install Ubuntu on my rig . I am new to linux and can use help. Does Ubuntu support the main board? If so, what am I doing wrong?

    The main board is the ASUS Rampage IV Extreme. The CPU is a second generation i7-3960x with 16.0GB RAM. The Video Garphics Adapter is the EVGA GTX580. The CPU is liquid cooled. And yes I over clock.

    Am I doomed to have to run Windows 7 on this thing?

    Regards,

    So what does that mean? I'm trying to install 12.04 after having Windows 7 (I want the whole drive for Linux instead), but I get a black screen with a single line cursor. The black screen happens after I leave the installer main menu screen (Install from Disc, Try Ubuntu First before Installing, MEM test, and whatever else).

    Do you also have the nVidia video card as that was his issue with black screen. nomodeset is required to boot liveCD/DVD/Flash drive.

    If Windows 7 is pre-installed is it in BIOS/MBR mode or UEFI/gpt. Most Intel i-series based motherboards have both UEFI & BIOS modes.
    If BIOS mode you may have 4 primary partition limit. If UEFI you need to boot in UEFI mode from live installer.

    While same motherboard boot issues are almost always different as users have different configurations. Best to start your own thread.

    How to set NOMODESET and other kernel boot options in grub2 - both liveCD & first boot, but different

    With nVidia you need nomodeset on liveCD/DVD/flash and then on first boot. Once you install the proprietary nVidia from Ubuntu's repository it should just work. If 12.10 you need to install kernel headers first.

    Why RAID 0? Especially with SSDs. Backups then are very important.

    Do not use gparted on RAID.
    http://www.howtoforge.com/how-to-res...-software-raid
    Don't bother with RAID 0 unless you have a specific need for speed without data redundancy, since if one drive goes out, you lose the whole array.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RAID
    parted (3.0) completely removes filesystem creation and modification support, except for filesystem probing to determine what's in a partition.

    Re: Anyone sucessfully installed Ubuntu on ASUS Rampage IV Extreme

    I have Ubuntu 13.04 dual booting with Win7 on my R4E. Mine is also overclocked and didn't present a hurdle. Since I installed Win7 on EFI, I found that I also had to boot the install disc in UEFI mode. After that you just install as usual. The install was on two separate HDD's though.

    Once you have Ubuntu 13.04 installed on one and Win7 on the other, you just set one of them as the default boot option in the firmware and if you want the other, just tap F8 during boot and it will give you the option. I found it more convenient than adding another layer to the boot process.
