View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't get 9.04 to boot from CD with ATI Radeon 2900 GT, stuck at GDM

August 30th, 2009, 05:57 PM

I used to be able to boot the Ubuntu live CD in my system without any problems when it had a ATI Radeon X300 installed. Since then, I have upgraded to a Radeon 2900GT (for windows 7) and now I can't boot into the CD anymore. All I get is it trying to start GDM and some weird colours at the very top of my screen (covers maybe 5% of total space on screen). I figure this is an issue with X trying to start, but I am unsure of how to proceed with this. Is there anything I can add via command line to the boot in order for X to start, or am I SOL?

I know this is old, but this applies for me in 10.04 as well,


Can this be fixed?!?!?!

One more bump to try, I really wish I could get this to work!
