hello all
I'm trying to setup a dual boot of windows 7 x64 and Ubuntu 10.10 i386. before i got windows 7 and the new graphics card it ran 9.10 perfectly. if i take the card out(Nvidia 8800 Ultra), it will install fine but when i put the card back in, it crashes. it appears that it just doesnt like the card. any ideas?

googling around 8800+ultra+maverick, some users talk about an issue like yours, the workaround is to underclock the card for installation, then reset your prefs.
