View Full Version : [ubuntu] New install / Hardware compatibilty questions

February 4th, 2009, 07:11 AM
So... i can't seem to get past the DVD rom search, itll start the installer, then ask me what kind of DVD device im using, non of the options work (im running blu ray). Now my question is, if I just do a network install or external dvd install, am I just going to be riddling my computer with lack of drivers? i'm running:

Intel i7 965 extreme
Evga X58 Mobo
Evga 295 GTX
X-Fi Fatal1ty FPS edition (front bay model)
Dlink dwa 552 (wireless N)
LG super multi blu ray/hd dvd

What is the support like for the i7? Will i be able to get creatives crappy drivers to work? Or do i have to wait for the next big update?
