View Full Version : AMD64 Ubuntu 10.10 installer doesn't load

April 9th, 2011, 07:15 AM
I've been trying to install Ubuntu 10.10 on my custom built AMD Athlon FX-53 system to use as a web server. I downloaded the AMD64 desktop version and whenever I boot to the CD it'll go through the loading screen, bring up the install background and then the mouse cursor will appear. After that the mouse cursor keeps switching between the loading one and the regular one and it never fully loads the installer.

The system specs are:
AMD Athlon FX-53 @ 2.4 GHz (Stock)
1 Gb OCZ PC-3200 ram (2x512)
PNY Verto FX5200
Western Digital 40 Gb IDE hard drive
based off an Asus SK8V motherboard (Skate 5 to me...)

I was able to install the 32-bit version and I've tried 2 burns, one on a CD-RW and one on a CD-R and the checksum is the correct one based on whats posted on the site.

If you're intending to run a server an LTS release is best. Most stable and long term support (five years). 10.04 LTS is the current LTS release.

If you are wanting to run it as a web-server, why are you trying to install desktop version? Download the 10.04 LTS server ISO and install that, then get online and install a desktop environment (like Gnome, Xfce) if you want to use one rather than a terminal. ;)
