View Full Version : [ubuntu] HP a705w 8.10 install

November 29th, 2008, 09:09 AM
I am installing Ubuntu 8.10 on my HP Pavilion and it seems to be hanging when the live cd status bar loads. This happened when I installed 8.04 on this machine awhile ago but have since upgraded the hard drive so I am doing a fresh install. Using 'acpi=off' worked then but does not work now. Anyone suggestions?

Have you tried removing the splash screen to see where it is hanging?
