View Full Version : [server] on install 16.04 server black screen all activity stops

I am trying to install Ubuntu 16.04 Server x64 on a Compaq CQ1550LA which is an Intel D525 based system, Legacy Boot

I get to the language selection then the option to install . After a few seconds the screen goes blank , DVD , and hard disk activity all stop. After waiting I press the power button and get an immediate shutdown, so it does not seem like anything is happening.

I tried the "nomodeset" option and still no luck.

The BIOS is very basic and has few adjustments.

Anyone have any suggestons?
