I would like to prepare a development station in my new computer using Ubuntu but all the ways I tried to install have failed.
Once I'm a new Linux user I need to use it in Dual Boot with Windows 7 mainly, but not strictly, as a fallback for some softwares and/or games.
But as I said, all my tries have failed. I burned the 64 bits ISO in a DVD, in a normal CD, I'd installed it in two different pen drives, tried to use 32 bits version...
When trying to run the installer, the process stops with a black screen and a intermitent cursor.
I read using nomodeset could solve, but it didn't.
If I run the Live CD (or Flash Drive) after some initialization messages I receive this:
And the process "dies".Failed Command: READ FPDMA QUEUED
Some lines below
Failed Command: IDENTIFY PACKET SERVICE
Some more lines
ata5: Hard Resetting link
My CPU is a Intel Core i5 3570 3.4 Ghz.
My motherboard is an ASUS P8H61-M PRo
And I have 8 GB of RAM
Something very weird is I could run the Live flash drive in my brother's computer which has a slightly different CPU than mine, but he has an nVidia GPU Card and I don't.
Could be this the problem? Ubuntu does not recognize the Intel HD Graphics my CPU has?
