View Full Version : [ubuntu] [SOLVED] after install unable to run ubuntu 8.10

December 28th, 2008, 10:35 PM
I had some teething problems installing the ubuntu os, which is installed as a dual os with windows xp; with help these have been solved. Now I cant actually run ubuntu. I get the ubuntu circle, and the progress bar loads to about 98%, then the screen goes black and nothing. I am forced to reset my computer each time I try it. I was advised to boot without the flash screen but the text runs so fast cant read the last line.I'd be happy to relay any of the specs of my computer of that helps?:KS

I would really like to persevere and get linux working.
