Hi all,
I am posting becuase I went to install Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit on my Asus K52F laptop. At first I installed it via USB and it failed. Towards the end of the install when it checked for packages to be reomoved the installer throws up a failure message telling me where to find the syslog. So I erased all partitions with gparted and reinstalled windows 7 and tried to install ubuntu again with a cd, and got the same message. But, even though it fails I am able to boot into Ubuntu.

Please Help!!

I can put the syslog in if needed.

P.S. I have Ubuntu 11.04 installed on my desktop and have used Ubuntu off and on since 8.04, so I know a little bit.

Full syslog is a lot of info. What is the error message from it or posted at end of install.

If it boots what does not work? Have you updated after booting? Perhaps some Video issue?
