    Beta 2 will not load from DVD

    I just burned the iso this morning. On loading I see the Ubuntu splash screen followed by artifact. I then hear the logon screen bongos while still showing the artifact. No further progress in loading. After 4 attempts I decided to post here.

    Glad I settled on a Live CD. The Ubuntu splash screen still shows the same resolution problems with my nvidia graphics chip that they had in June (that Live CD loaded without a hitch). I didn't get to the desktop to see if it is changeable in Display Settings but then that is another challenge.

    Thanks in advance.

    If you were to use the current daily likely all would be fine
    http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/

    With the beta 2 image -
    As soon as it starts booting press any key to go to options. Select lang, press enter, then on the Boot Options line remove -
    splash
    & then proceed on to live session

    Thanks for posting this. I'll give it a try. I *just* booted an Ubuntu 12.10 beta2 (64-bit) live CD on a system with a nVidia GeForce 8600GT video card in it and was presented with an interesting black and white screen pattern.

    I'll try the current daily image and see what happens.

    Thanks!

    Peace...

    Thanks for this response! Keeps me from downloading again with my glorified dial-up. Are you recommending to remove all of this
    Code:
    /initrd.lz quiet splash--
    which is at the end of the Boot Options line?

    Code:
    /initrd.lz quiet splash--
    remove red (you can also remove blue if desired but not really necessary
    The - - can stay though not sure if they matter

    Worked this time. I only removed "splash" the first time but for some reason it didn't work. Resolution is perfect. Thanks for your assistance.
