you have to learn a little how to format and make install.

read the sticky threads on ALL the forums here

Hi all,

I have the same motherboard except that I am using a Phenom 3 X6 1055T, onboard graphics (Rad 4250) and 1T hard disks.

Have not problems installing Ubuntu 10.04 amd-64 Desktop from a bootable USB drive.

The only problems I have with this system is that I cannot get the audio working (got HDMI & SPDIF ok) but not the PCM. The installation says RAD ATI SB, but does not indicate the ACL892 chipset. If any of you have the same board, kindly give me a heads-up.
