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
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?
