View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't install Ubuntu 64bit on hp dv6-6145dx

June 8th, 2012, 04:57 PM
I just got HP DV6-6145dx Notebook:

AMD Quad-Core A8-3500M Accelerated Processor
AMD Radeon HD 6620G

well I removed every thing that related to windows " system, hidden partitions " so that I won`t need them.
I tried to install Ubuntu 12.04LTS 64bit and I got a lot of error and crashes:

Ubuntu has an error "executable path" from the beginning after boot.
Another that said Ubuntu installation process crashed

and some times the words converted to squares and can't continuing the installation process at all. On the other hand i tried the 32bit version, and every thing went smoothly
need your help

thanks in advance

Maybe a bad image download, or maybe ubiquity (the Ubuntu installer) just doesn't like your machine.

Fortunately you can bypass ubiquity altogether if you aren't intimidated by a text based installer, just head over to the alternate CD (http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop/alternative-downloads) section of the Ubuntu website and download the alternate CD iso...

Thanks for your interest
- i tried to download it again and got the same result , even the dvd version does the same error
- " ubiquity " i saw that word in one of the error message, but i don't know that -doesn't like your machine- means ?? and how i can solve this issue
- i did the alternate CD and the installation process stopped too in some point, so i skipped the error and gone to the next step, but i got the LUI

Does this machine have both an Intel and an ATI graphics adapter? You may need to flip a switch in the BIOS (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=11244073#post11244073) to tell the machine to use the ATI card.

No it doesn't have....

at the beginning i thought that the graphics card cause this problem, so i tried to install it using -- nomodeset -- but got the same result :(
