    System reboots everytime I try to start ubuntu 10.04

    Hello,

    I have used ubuntu 8.04 in a dual boot system together with windows xp and wanted to upgrade to ubuntu 10.04.
    Since the upgrade did not work (the \usr partition was to small and I couldn't make it big enough) I downloaded the ubuntu-10.04-desktop-i386 edition and tried to install it.
    Everything worked find during the installation process but when I tried to start ubuntu I could only see the ubuntu desktop for a second and then the computer began to reboot.
    Then I thought that I can solve this problem by installing ubuntu 8.04.4 again and trying to upgrade to ubuntu 10.04. After the installation I could start ubuntu 8.04.4 without problems but after upgrading to ubuntu 10.04 the same problem occurs again: ubuntu 10.04 causes the computer to reboot every time I try to start ubuntu.

    Has anyone an idea what causes this problem and what I can do?

    I would be very thankful for any advice.

    Thanks in advance, maynard

    Have you tried booting Ubuntu 10.04 in recovery-mode and see if the problem remains the same?

    There must be a conflict between the new kernel and perhaps the graphics-card??

    What Graphics-card do u have?

    I have a ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics Card.
    But if that was the problem shouldn't the LiveCD don't work either?
    Because I can start the ubuntu 10.04 LiveCd without any problems and
    I am able to try ubuntu 10.04 from the LiveCd
