View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trying to install Ubuntu Desktop on Gateway DX4200-UB001A but hangs up

I am trying to install Ubuntu from a bootable DVD that I created using the Windows Disc Image Burner in Windows 7 using the 64-bit version of the Ubuntu Desktop. The computer seems to be loading from the DVD but doesn't give me the menu to 1.- Try Ubuntu, 2.- Install Ubuntu, etc. It just goes thru a series of commands and then it gets to a point that hangs up. I tried it several times with the same result.

I was thinking maybe Ubuntu doesn't like this computer configuration?

I tweaked video card setting in the CMOS and I was able to install Ubuntu 14.04.
