View Full Version : [edubuntu] Black screen during installation (Or failed installation)

July 8th, 2008, 10:54 PM
I booted on the CD, clicked "INSTALL" and it loaded, checked the system conf and copied some files untill the screen showed only a wallpaper and a cursor for about 33minutes. It then blacked out (The screen). Now I dont know whats happening, I cant turn it on but the light indicates that it is on but its just black. What went wrong? It has been like this for just more than 5 hours. Please help me

did you check if the image download was good? try https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM

And if it was well burned? After booting from the cd there should be an option to check the cd.

Did you use the wubi installer? (The one that installs ubuntu while you are in Windows) If so, did you remember to defragment your hard drive prior to installation? I forgot to defrag and Ubuntu could not install at all.
