View Full Version : [ubuntu] No full boot up from CD

November 26th, 2009, 07:19 PM

I've used Ubuntu before and I have run it from a CD (without installling it).
I have now downloaded 9.10 and find that after the usual screen and initial question, e.g., language, all I then get is a symbol that keeps getting lighter and fading which is then
followed by just a blinking cursor. And nothing else.
Can anyone help please?

I think you get stuck in the graphical boot screen.

To see what's going on, don't use the graphical boot screen: In the (second) boot screen (so immediately after the language selection), press F6, then ESC, then BACKSPACE x times to delete "quiet splash", then press ENTER.

Then see what happens.
