View Full Version : [ubuntu] installer boot problems

October 7th, 2009, 05:32 PM
I am having issues getting the installer to boot properly - the loading screen comes up and appears to run properly, then once the boot reaches the point the splash screen would show up, I get garbage on my monitor.

I have a Toshiba L305-S5962, Intel T4200, Intel GMA4500M graphics card. I'm trying to get CAElinux 2009 installed, which uses ubuntu 8.04 OS. I have the same issue while attempting to install CAElinux OR Ubuntu 8.04x64

this issue is also listed under http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1025507 but it seemed that this should be included in the installation issues.

I've tried ctrl-alt-f2 with the ubuntu cd and it does nothing.

Ubuntu 9.04 works fine-


edit: looks like I put this into the wrong thread column... should have gone into 'Hardware & Laptops'. woops!
