hi,
first off, i'm rather new to linux. I'm trying to install Ubuntu on my new HP 2140. When i'm booting from an external drive i get the installation gui, i then select install Ubuntu but my whole screen gets full of some messages probably what he is doing at the moment. In the last two lines he is saying unknown Boot Option and then trace ended.
To leave this screen i have to forcefully shut down my netbook.
I tried waiting but nothing happens, i tried installing from usb stick exact same thing happens, i tried the netbook remix and the same thing happens.

Anyone any ideas how i get Ubuntu to work?
this is really frustrating because i searched and found a lot of people stating the installation on HP2140 was pretty easy.^^

Thanks in advance.
