I have just installed black track 5 (Based on Ubuntu 10.04) on a separate 500GB HDD and when I run it on my Acer Aspire One D270 it boots to a blank screen. The partition on the 500GB hdd is encrypted. When I run backtrack on other computers it boots normally.
With the acer aspire one d270 everything starts ok : it prompts me for the partition password, then the splash screen passes by for a while then the screen goes blank. The WLAN indicator light does not even light up so the boot process has stalled.
BUT: when I boot up the system with the acer aspire one d270 connected to an external monitor, the system boots completely and successfully, even activating the acer's own monitor.
Can anybody tell me if there is a way of booting correctly without having to connect an external monitor first?
I know the acer aspire one d270 has an issue with linux systems due to its cedarview graphics card, but if that were the case the problem would persist with the external monitor as well, I suppose.
