    Re: Install freezes on load screen 10.10

    I am also new to ubuntu.. I have a question for all of you because I have had a similar problem. As soon as the CD spins up press the F6 key. This brought me to the menu screen.. I can install from there. But as for myself after the install of 10.xx the machine hangs there also, basically it will not boot the Os.. Hopefully this will help. Good luck!

    There seems to be already punch of people who has same problem. I have it too.

    I have had Ubuntu 10.04 in my laptop previously...but with Wubi install. It was broke after some updates so removed it and now I have tried to install Ubuntu from Live CD or USB.

    Finally I got my Ubuntu working.

    UBUNTU installed with "Alternative downloads" from CD
    http://www.ubuntulinux.org/desktop/g...ative-download

    After that desktop was still not working. Initially I did not have any desktop installed, only prompt.
    From prompt I installed desktop with "sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop" but desktop was still not working.
    But from Grub2 I could choose Recovery mode for Ubuntu

    So solution was:

    1. picked up NVIDIA graphic card driver matching to laptop hardware from NVIDIA site to USB stick
    2. Started ubuntu with recovery mode

    In recovery mode you need to give command to be able to install driver:
    3. telinit 3 (it will ask your username and psw what you gave in installation)
    4. mkdir /media/usb
    5. mount -t /dev/sdb1 /media/usb (you can check your usb stick "dev name" with sudo fdisk -l)
    6. cd /media/usb/linux (I had driver in linux directory)
    7. sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-260.19.12.run
    Installation should start. I just followed instructions.
    8. sudo reboot- f
    9. Start Ubuntu in normal mode.

    Desktop is OK now! So my problem was in the end that graphic driver in Ubuntu installation "package" was not compatible with my hardware.
