View Full Version : [ubuntu] Installation issue on Dell N7110 + Crucial M500 Series 240GB SATA-III 2.5 inch

I had run without issues Ubuntu (couple versions including 13.x and 14.04) on my Dell N7110. Today I decided to replace my old 500 GB hdd 5400 RPM with a SSD. This was the only hwd change.

But at install surprise... I tried with 14.04, 12.04 and after the keyboard appears on bottom of the install screen then install screen is dissapears and nothing happens...

I though could be a hwd issue but I was able to install Win7 without any problem on same configuration.

Any idea ? I really want to use the SSD...

Thank you,

Centos 6.5 doesnt work but Centos 5.10 works.

I guess it has to do with kernel version vs some incompatibilities with Crucial.
