The installation of Ubuntu 11.10 64bit completes correctly, when it reboots I am indefinatley stuck at a purple screen with no error message no nothing . I have tried the following without success:-
1. nomodeset when installer starts
2. unplugged the additonal 1tb disk
3. Setting SATA controller to IDE
4. ctrl+alt F1 (diff tty)
My setup is Asus P9X79, 3970k, 120Gb SSD & 16GB RAM
Any suggestions on where I am going wrong?
Oh I have to stick with 11.10 for various reasons I wont go into here.
Hope someone can help.
