I have tried to install Ubuntu a few times in vain after checking similar problems on a Dell T7400. It is a 64bit, triple boot OS
I was getting the "no value set for '/apps/netbook_launcher/favorites/favorites_list" and found selecting "nomodeset" pushed the installation a bit further, but no desktop.
Choosing different other combinations via F6 rendered no results but a black screen with 2 white bars 2/3 of the way down on one monitor, the other will not go on.
I've spent a few hours on this and I am a noob so go easy?

Thanks

Do a md5 sum check of your iso image.
