View Full Version : Problem installing ubuntu

March 4th, 2016, 05:51 AM
I've tried using a Bootable USB and an iso burned to a cd.they do the same thing. Whether I try to run Ubuntu from live cd or install Ubuntu it does the same thing. It goes to the boot screen and asks what I would like to do. Then after I click on try Ubuntu or install Ubuntu it does to a black screen with a purple line down the left side for a couple minutes and then it comes up with text.

Welome. Comes up with what text? You need to be more specific.

Ubuntu doesn't fit on a CD. Do you mean DVD?

Presuming you've created either correctly as you are getting to the options screen, try this.

Boot the install media, when you get to the purple screen with the little icon down the bottom during boot (not your problem screen, way before that), hit any key. That should take you to the options screen. Hit F6. A pop-up with more options should appear. Choose 'nomodeset' and proceed to 'Try Ubuntu' from the install media.

Any luck?
