View Full Version : [all variants] live cd problem

January 3rd, 2010, 11:19 AM
Hi - hope someone can point me in the right direction here.

New laptop with windows 7. Wanted to try kubuntu so created a live cd. Unable to boot from the CD - the machine gives splash screen then nothing else. No ttys available. I can hear the welcome tune from KDE. But nothing else.

So I created a ubuntu cd with exactly the same result. These cds work ok on another HP box that I have which is running XP.

This is an advent roma 2000, the driver used by windows seems to be mobile intel 4 series express chipset family - hmm. not sure about that but that's all I could see. using oem2.inf file.

This is not my machine so I can't go ahead and do a character based install and try to progress this - I need to run from the live cd to see if the owner likes KDE enough to ditch W7 for linux.

Also tried wubi.exe from the KUBUNTU CD with the same result.
