    minecraftmeun5; Yuk,

    Yeah the "purple splash screen" is directed at 'ubuntu'.. the process though is the same.
    As soon as the bios screen clears, depress and hold the right **** key -> language screen, escape key to accept the default -> boot options screen.

    regret that I confused you.

    minecraftmeun5; Not Good !

    I see 2 problems:
    edd information not available -> is this an old old CRT monitor ?
    set2 keyboard -> try and see if there are settings in bios to set the keyboard to "legacy", and what ever is set now for plug and play, change it to the alternate.

    All I can think of presently, see what we can do in bios.

    back'n up to punt

    It is not a CRT monitor it is Fuji Plus LCD monitor. I think that the keyboard issue could be that the keyboard is really USB but the computer doesn't support USB keyboards so it is through a adapter but i change the bios settings i think.

    The graphics card is old and there are reports that it does not work well in 14.04.
    I suggest something 12.04-based. See more in the link in my signature.

    Rather than use a server image I'd use the archived 12.04.1 image:

    http://old-releases.ubuntu.com/releases/12.04.1/

    I know the header says 12.04.3 but if you look the 12.04.1 images are there. My reasoning behind that is due to the LTS hardware enablement stack:

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/LTSEnablementStack

    Basically the current 12.04.4 images use the Saucy kernel and X-stack so in a few months you'd have to upgrade to the Trusty kernel and X-stack which appear to be causing you problems anyway. The original Precise kernel and X-stack are supported throughout April 2017 so much less likely to cause major problems.

    Also though both the 12.04.1 desktop and alternate i386 images are still CD size

    minecraftmeun5; kansasnoob; Hey;

    Initially, on release, 12.04.1 did fit on a CD, however with the upgrades to 12.04 it no longer fits on a CD. shucks.
    I recently (re-)installed 12.04.1 ( I want to keep the older xserver) and I had the thought rather than downloading all the recent updates on that original liveCD to download it again. Guess my consternation when I found it no longer fits on a CD .. had to go all the way into town a buy some DVD blanks.

    Same story when I went to clean install Lubuntu, no longer fits on a CD (36 bits to big !)

    Being the case we are restricted to CDs, how about we try bodi-linux ?

    hey it is a thought

    Silly question, but you are using the 32bit version and not the 64bit Ubuntu??? You could always go for a minimal install. It will install just the kernel. Don't choose to install anything else during the process. Once complete, the computer reboots to a CLI screen with cursor. Login and issue:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
    Reboot and you should get to a graphical login screen then into Ubuntu. The minimal install details are here:

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/In...t_PC_.28x86.29

    This is a good way to get a full Ubuntu when you can only boot from CD. The minimal ISO will fit on a CD with room to spare ...
