    check the md5sum, sometimes data gets damaged in transit, yuo may have a incomplete download

    Re: Kernel 3.7 and AMD cpu's

    Same as many people here, I've tried all kernels and nothing boot since the 3.6 RC1.
    After reading the thread, I've tried installing the amd64-microcode, still hangs.

    Tried the noapic noacpi nolapic command lines, still hangs after enumerating my USB peripherals.

    My config is an opteron 170 / dfi lanparty nforce 4 ultra D, using x386, not x64.

    This is driving me crazy, I can't figure out what's going wrong and searching the web didn't helped .
    I don't want to be stucked with 3.5.7 forever :/.

    Downloading latest raring desktop image AMD64, I'll try to see if it boot from USB using x64 and amd64-microcode.

    My problem was different from yours, the first file (the all.deb file) that you are supposed to install first failed to even install. If someone could give me instructions on how to check the MD5 Sum in Ubuntu (I have checked MD5's before, but only in Microsoft Windows) I would be very grateful. I did wipe my system today when I updated to today's Nightly Build through Zsync and Clean Install but I do have the 3.7.1 Bad Download saved on a DVD Disk just in case I need to create some kind of Bug Report.

    Re: Kernel 3.7 and AMD cpu's

    I know nothing will work, but can I install the x64 version of the 3.7.1 kernel just to test if it'll boot ?

    Is there any risks ?

    There shouldn't be any problem, if you install the 3.7 kernel, just make sure you have something to fallback on, either a running install with the 3.5 kernel, or another stable version.

    Re: Kernel 3.7 and AMD cpu's

    Still got the 3.5.7 i386 kernel wich is working, using it right now.

    I was a bit scared that the x64 one could break some system files or something.
    Let's try then, thanks .

    This is how I check the md5 sum. I download the iso to my desktop. In a terminal type cd Desktop. type ls (to see the name o f the iso image), then type md5sum (name of iso image)
    Note that you can start the name of the iso then hit tab to autocomplete the name.

    After I get the md5 sum highlight and copy the answer. Go to the web page you downloaded the iso from, look for md5sums. When you are there select edit, find in the browser and paste your md5 sum in the search box. See if it is found.

    after not being able to get 3.7 to work for me I tried the 3.8 rc1 and it boots right up .
    if it ain't broke you haven't tweaked it enough
