View Full Version : [ubuntu] Black screen after 1st progress bar on installation

January 16th, 2009, 09:22 PM
I am trying to install 8.10 on my machine
intel e6550
3Gb Ram
palit 4850

But I only get to the point where after the progress bar with the ubuntu logo I get a black screen with a blinking cursor on top. I tried using the safe mode option when you press f4 but i still get the same problem. Is there a way around this?

I am now downloading the alternate cd, but if there is a way to remedy this i would be grateful as the download will take 3 hours.

Many thanks
