Hello all,

I have been using ubuntu 10.10 32 bit. I thought of giving 64 bit a try. I downloaded the ubuntu-10.10-desktop-amd64 from the ubuntu website and burned it in to a cd. Then i boot from cd. But unfortuntely i am getting terminal instead of installtion or try options. It says : General errormounting filesystem" and then Lots of " Authentication failure". I typed startx in the terminal but i didnt get any gui.

I am using hp dv6 laptop with windows 7 preinstalled. Core i5 processer, nvidia g105m graphics card and 4gb ram. Ubuntu 10.10 32 bit works fine.
I don't know the whether the problem is because of my graphics card. But it works fine for me in 32 bit. The driver i am using is of version 260.19..06. Please somebody help me. I really want to use 64 bit OS.
