Brand New Toshiba Laptop
AMD A6-4400 64bit (2.6GHz IIRC)
4G DDR# 1600MHz RAM
SATA 500G HD
Trying to install 12.04.2 amd 64bit. Laptop came with W8, hated it, no need to partition etc
runs fine off live cd but no internet connection
when i install (with Graphical Interface), it hangs at *loading module 'usb storage' for 'USB storage'. . .*
--> added 'nousb' boot parameter in the boot menu (comes up when you hit any key at the first purple screen)
now install proceeds beyond usb module. yay!
BUT - now install hangs at *Detecting hardware, please wait*
tried some of the acpi boot parameters (not exhaustively) but the outcome was unaffected.
any suggestions? Thank you
