Been trying for two days to install 12.10 to a Dell Latitude D430. I just installed a 32GB Sandisk SSD, and the installer has no trouble detecting the drive, and appears to work perfectly. After reboot, however, all I get is a blinking cursor and no other response.
I previously had 11.xx running on the same notebook, but running from a thumb drive. This was not the live iso, but actually installed from DVD to an 8GB USB stick as though it were a regular drive. I've tried both 32 and 64 bit versions, and tried installing from a thumb drive as well as a DVD, all with identical results.
I just want to make this into a glorified netbook for use with schoolwork, but I'm beginning to lose hope and if someone here can't help me I'm going to end up swallowing a bullet and installing Windows 7 instead, so HELP!
