    Exclamation Impossible to install Ubuntu

    Good evening to everyone;
    I have a problem with my pc, I can't turn out to install Ubuntu 13.10 64bit or other releases (I have tried with some minimal releases but I haven't had any results). When I choose "Try ubuntu" or "install ubuntu" the desktop becomes like in the photo. How can I solve this problem? I have already asked on ubuntu italian forum but they haven't been able to help me. Thanks.
    This is my computer's hardware
    VGA Asus nVidia GeForce GTX 660 DC2O-2GD5
    RAM DDR3 G.Skill Ripjaws-X F3-1600C9D-16GXM 1600MHz 16GB (2x8GB)
    CPU Intel Core i5-4570 3.2GHz Socket 1150 84W with GPU HD Graphics 4600 Boxed
    AsRock Fatal1ty Z87 Professional Socket 1150 Intel Z87

    Welcome. I have removed the large image from the body of your post. Spare a thought for those with slow connections and/or vision issues (who may be able to help but won't access the page).

    What happens when you either press 'Try Ubuntu' to try Ubuntu, or 'Install Ubuntu' to install it from the screen in the pic? You are installing from a USB dongle?

    When I choose one of the two choices, the screen be moved on the right and pink line appears on the left. After some seconds the computer is down and I can't do anything, I have to only shut down by button.
    Thank you for your operation on the photo .
    I have tried by USB and CDS.
    Thank you!

    When you get to the normal sized screen before the little blue screen that is in the picture, hit F6. Do you get a pop up menu? If so, choose 'nomodeset'. Proceed. Any different?

    While I were writing the code, it was down.

    Re: Impossible to install Ubuntu

    carlo.zoc7; Hi !

    Did you do this ?
    From a cold boot:
    Boot the liveCD;
    At the purple splash screen (stick figure keyboard emblems at bottom of screen) -> hit any key ->
    Language screen -> escape key to accept the default ->
    Booting options screen -> f6 key (other options) -> arrow down to the preset option(s)space or enter to accept and then the escape key to exit;
    Try "nomodeset" at this time; for other additions the boot options kernel boot line is now available, one may append "other" desired boot parameters to the end of the line that are not present in the "presets".
    For now we are interested in the results of "nomodeset" .
    Enter key to continue the boot process to the GUI desk top; Degraded graphics is OK at this point.
    If you reach this point, then: ->
    Additional Drivers, location varies depending on the version, ->locate the Additional Drivers utility and install the recommended driver.

    Whatever action is required to boot the LiveMedium must be replicated in the actual install.

    So, tell us exactly what procedure you are doing, and what is happening at each step.

    Additional help is pending as your needs are realized.

    there is a way

    Re: Impossible to install Ubuntu

    carlo.zoc7; Welp,

    Try again, there is a very small window of opportunity for the system to recognize that a key has been hit in some systems.
    As soon as your bios screen clears, try repeatedly hitting the left shift key, We must get to the boot options screen to affect the boot parameters.
    language screen-> escape to accept the default -> boot option screen -> f6 key .

    there ain't no getting around it

    Re: Impossible to install Ubuntu

    The problem is I don't have the purple screen with the menu. The only purple screen that shows is the first, where we can find the icon down. After the purple screen appears the screen in the photo.
    Thank you for your availability
