I'm trying to install ubuntu on a wd15ears hdd. Booting from the CD works fine when I don't have any drives connected, or some other drives connected, but if my new wd15ears 1.5TB hdd is connected, after the boot menu the pulsating ubuntu logo will pulsate for a while, and then I'll only see the blinking cursor in the top left corner of my screen. The hdd light is constantly on and nothing happens. Can anyone help me please? Is there a way to put the boot in verbose mode so I can see what fails, instead of seeing the ubuntu logo?

Thanks in advance!:)

Usually Cntrl - Alt - F1 or Esc
