I'm attempting to install Ubuntu 12.10 (32-bit) on a Toshiba NB255. Ubuntu has worked in the past.

I'm installing from a USB drive and I've verified that it works on another laptop.

When I boot I get the error:
graphics initialization failed
Error setting up gfxboot
boot:
This post from 2010 says to type "help" then press enter and the installer will proceed as normal. That did not work, it repeats the error:
No DEFAULT or UI configuration directive found!
Any ideas on this?
