So, I just got a brand new HP tx2500z Tablet PC. I want to dual-boot with Ubuntu Hardy, but can't even get started. When I boot to the disc, and choose either install or start Live, it loads for a few minutes, then ejects the disc and tells me to remove and press enter. I do that, and it just shuts down the computer. I tried booting with options noapic irqpoll noirqdebug, but the noapic caused a kernel panic. With just irqpoll noirqdebug, I got about 15 seconds further into the process: I got the mouse cursor, a really distorted image in the top 1/5 of my screen, and then it went back and ejected my disc. I then tried the CD Check, which seemed to complete, and then restart my machine automatically.
Any ideas?? The system has a 2.4Ghz AMD Turion X2 Ultra processor, 3GB of RAM, Vista Home Premium. Other than being a tablet, there's nothing else out of the ordinary.
