March 29th, 2010, 01:47 PM
I have a older computer that i am trying to load ubuntu on it. I can put in the CD and restart the computer and the boot menu will pop up, I can click any of the options like install ubuntu or anything else but once i click it, it will take me the another screen where it will say loading... please wait then it goes away and i sit there looking at a black screen for 20 minutes while nothing happens. What is wrong why cant i install ubuntu, or anything else except for windows.

If you need more info feel free to ask i really want to fix this.

How much RAM are you running on this computer? I encountered a similar issue when trying to install Karmic onto a computer that only had 128M of RAM. I had to snag a 64M piece and install that to get it up to the minimum for the live CD.
