View Full Version : Live DVD Freezes at Login Screen

February 23rd, 2016, 06:06 PM
I'm attempting to install Cisco's VIRL, which runs a version of Lubuntu. The install procedure is to boot into the live DVD and then install the software. Once I got as as far as the desktop before everything froze, but every other time the install freezes at the login screen. I've tried using acpi=off, nomodeset, noapic, but the problem persists.

The system is a Dell R720 and the install is through an iDRAC. Mounting the ISO and using a DVD fail in the same place.
