View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu on Xserve 1.1 graphics issue

January 16th, 2019, 11:02 PM

Me and my friend have been trying to boot ubuntu onto an old xserve1.1 using refit. We get to a stage where the boot says "hda-intel no codecs found" and then boots into this horrendous graphics glitch version of the console, as shown in the picture:


It behaves just like the terminal, i.e we can type stuff in and it gives a response, but we cant actually read any of it. It only has this issue when we use 'nomodeset' as a quantifier. We think this is in Ubuntu but we don't really want the entire UI, just the terminal, so is there a way to boot just into terminal/boot so that this issue doesn't happen?

Thank you
