Hi, I recently build my new desktop with the asus m3n78 pro and amd phenom 9950 140W. I have succesfuly install ubuntu on my macbook pro but when i tried installing ubuntu on my desktop computer it will freeze up at the partition with 0% when it's partitioning. I have tried ubuntu 8.10 and 8.04 32 and 64 and no luck.

I currently have xp 32 bit install on it.
I also have an empty partition with 40GB available.
I would really appreciate if anyone can help me out with this one.

Thanks for all your help and support.

I have installed 8.04 on AMD Semphron with no issues.
XP which version you have( Home or Pro)? I have Pro. What is your system config.

Ok I got it to install ubuntu, now the only problem that I have is that my microsoft wireless laser 6000 mouse it works for little bit and then it stops working.

Any clues of how to fix this?

Actually, do you recommend this mobo?, cause I'm looking for building a computer.

And sorry about your mouse. I can't help with that one. Good luck fixing it and be careful if some guy tells you to edit your xorg.conf file. That can be dangerous. I know from experience with my Logitech mouse.
