View Full Version : [all variants] Failed to install

February 1st, 2011, 03:31 PM
Recently I am trying to install the latest Ubuntu / Xubuntu but after the kernel messages the display becomes corrupted ....
The machine is a Clevo laptop with the dreaded SIS 671 / 672 chipset.

The Ubuntu 8.04 is working flawlessly .... :(
Any other version I get several problems and depending on the mood of the system I get a vertical running display ( not readable ) or a left horizontal displaced screen (readable) ...
I tried more tan several CDs ranging from 9.01 to 10.10 both Ubuntu or Xubuntu ...

What is the plainest (simpler ) VGA mode in order to install it ?
I have tried vga=normal and even VGA =3 with no sucess ....

with the latest Ubuntu 10.10 I get another problem it simply does not recognize the HDD / SSD ...
I have traced the SSD problem with the sata_sis module in kernel 2.6.35 and up...
Other distros have the same problem ... :(

Any comments ?

Hey Ubuntu just said sorry the had problems with their sever..... Please use this web site http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/
The iso that you have might have been corrupted

Have a great Day!!!

P.S. this is 10.04.1 but it still has everything that ubuntu 10.10 has

Then you can just upgrade to 10.10
