View Full Version : [ubuntu] Intrepid boot failure

November 2nd, 2008, 02:01 AM
There seems to be a problem with AHCI: I installed ok (clean install), when I turn the computer on, it hangs in the boot process. If I turn AHCI off in the BIOS, it boots fine, but I cannot boot Vista. Unfortunately, if I don't get a fix, I don't think it will work for me, so any help is greatly appreciated.

Computer: (recently purchased) Gateway P-7811fx notebook, intel dual core, 4gb DDR3 memory, 2 hard disks, nVidia 9600 GTS

I tried both the 8.10 32bit and the 64bit desktop versions. I did not try the prior versions in this notebook, but I've been using Ubuntu for a while, both for a desktop (server) and another notebook (desktop version).
