Hi Everyone,

I have a problem installing Ubuntu 8.10 Server edition onto the following platform -


Intel D945GCLF motherboard
Intel Atom processor
C/F -> IDE interface
4GB compact flash
512MB DDR RAM

There is no problem with the installation process, but once installed the PC fails to boot. After the BIOS splash screen, I'm left with a flashing cursor at the top left hand corner of the screen.

I've tried the 8.10 alternate CD and get the same results.

Can anybody help?

Regards,

Lee
