View Full Version : [ubuntu] HP Pavillion Phenom X4

September 30th, 2008, 01:56 AM
I have recently purchased a new HP Pavillion M9350F with a Viola board and Phenom X4 processors. I'm sick of Vista 64 already and need to get either Ubuntu or Kubuntu on this workstation. I have installed many different distros on many different boxes without any major issues but attempting to run either Ubuntu/Kubuntu 8.04 LiveCD dumps me to Busy Box every time. I've tried all boot options I'm aware of acpi=off noapic nolapic vgamode=792 etc., etc.

If anyone has had success in loading this box, I would appreciate your input on exactly how you did it. Thanks much in advance!
