View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installation freezes on HP Server

July 28th, 2009, 03:00 AM
Hi all,

I'm trying to install ubuntu or fedora on my dedicated HP Server that I recently purchased. I'm a newb and have the basic understanding of Linux systems.

My HP ProLiant Hardware information is below, I am suspecting that the installation freezes because of a hardware conflict or something? Because installing Fedora 10 freezes at "Detecting Hardware".
