View Full Version : [ubuntu] Install appears fine - locks after reboot

March 21st, 2010, 10:26 PM
I have an AMD Quad core 2.4, 4 Gig Ram, Geforce GTX 260 (latest driver), Win 7 Pro 32 bit. Burned the install CD 9.10 386.iso (also tried 9.04) and the install seemed to go fine. I picked English, told it to install alongside Windows. It goes through the progress bar, tells me that its completed, but needs to reboot. When I do this, it takes me to the dual boot choices....& I choose Ubuntu. It then says something like "Press escape for more bootup options, then just locks. The HD indicator LED is solidly on, but not doing anything. Also the CD is not spinning. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Always wanted to learn Linux, and now that XBMC is geared mainly towards Linux...might as well. Thanks
