    Question Trial from CD works but will not finish boot.

    I'm having a bit of a conundrum with 12.04. I put it on a CD to install it on my new system and tossed it in. Checked out the trial bit and everything seemed to be ok, it looked great.
    So I do the actual install, restart, and... I get a purple screen.

    If the trial works then why will it not boot properly?

    'Edit'- Forgot to say its the 64bit version I'm trying to use.

    System is this:

    CPU: Phenom II x4
    Mobo: Gigabyte 990FXA
    Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD 6950
    HDD: 1TB Seagate Barracuda
    RAM: 8Gb


    Oh, fresh meat by the way. Hey all!

    Alright, just tried the 32-bit Ubuntu 12.04.1 and I still had the same point of hang at start-up, even though the Try from CD works just fine.

    fleshy Bits; Hi ! Welcome to the forum .

    Try this and see if you boot :
    Bring up the boot options menu : As soon as the bios screen clears depress any key (supposedly - I use shift key) ..function keys are available to boot up with alternate parameters ..initially I suggest you try "nomodeset". Other helps are available.

    An appropriate driver can be installed on your system after installation is completed.
    warm regards <==BDQ
