View Full Version : [ubuntu] Having issues installing from CD

September 12th, 2008, 06:20 PM
I have a HP dc5750 dual core AMD 64 bit with SATA drive (both hard drive and DVD) i cannot seem to get ubuntu to install at all.

If i choose install. I watch the boot process by hitting CTRL + Right arrow and it it seems to die after loading Ubiquity (SP). No error messages, video just cuts out and the CD stops spinning.

If i choose boot to Live CD the desktop comes up but after about 2 seconds it freezes and 1 second later the video cuts out.

If i press CTRL+ALT+DEL i get a beep but nothing else.

I have set the SATA Mode to all three settings available in the BIOS.. Native IDE mode, Legacy IDE mode, and RAID.

Any ideas?

It is the one that is built in. Radeon Xpress 1150 128MB.
