Re: installing 12.10 from ISO USB stick - graphics driver problem
During testing of quantal the users with nvidia cards were having success booting by removing "splash" from the boot parameters, when confronted with corrupted graphics.
When booting the live desktop iso, immediately after the first purple screen appears, and the little man and keyboard icon appears hit any key, choose language, and I think accept one other thing by hitting enter, you will see some choices, ignore and hit f6 then change the boot parameter, removing splash, continue to boot to the live desktop and do the install.
The first time booting from the installed OS, when you see the grub menu hit "e" and edit the boot parameters removing splash again, "ctrl x" to boot to the desktop then install the nvidia driver and you should be good to go.
I was under the impression this was fixed for the final release, but maybe not for all hardware,
Hope this helps...
