I have a Dell Precision T3500 running Radhat.
Configuration: 12GB ram, Dual Core Processor W3505 2.53GHz processor.

I am tyring to install Ubuntu 64 bit with no success.
I have tried both a 32 and 64 bit and in both cases it shows the intial screen, asking to choose a language, folowed by the screen that allows you to select Install.

Once Install is selected it starts and than the screen goes blank for ever and nothing happens.
Any good ideas

Elan, I have the 3500 also. To get an install to succeed I had to install Intrepid and perform an upgrade to Jaunty. This worked and the install was successful but everytime I have to boot I have to add acpi=off to get it to successfully boot.

I'm running into the same issue.

On the T3500 9.04 will not install unless I use noacpi.
Ubuntu 8.10 will install without any issues.

However, we use scripted installs for our company standard and "noacpi" or acpi=off does not appear to work.

Also, the power off button does an abrupt power off. Not really desired.

Any ideas?
