Cant get any ubuntu version/type to boot to the installer or livecd properly
I have a beautiful new HP EliteBook 8530p which I'm trying
to get ubuntu installed onto.Â* Currently runs Vista x64 (this shouldnt
really matter though). I cant seem to get any version of Ubuntu to boot into
the disc correctly.Â* the disks ARE getting burned properly and have no
I've tried various flavors here to see if any of them work
and im having no luck.
Ubuntu 8.10 amd64 & 32bit Desktop Alternate â€“ gets me to
the screen where I choose the language and I choose install ubuntu.Â* Gives the progress bar where it loads the
installer and all that stuff then brings me to a blinking cursor on a black
screen.Â* It stays like this indefinitely.
Kubuntu 8.10 32bit â€“ choose INSTALL and "bug: soft lockup.Â* CPU#1 stuck for 11s.Â* Modeprobe:1040
Ubuntu 8.04 32bit Server â€“ choose INSTALL and "bug: soft
lockup.Â* CPU#1 stuck for 11s.Â* Modeprobe:1040
The strange thing is at one point a few days ago I was able
to boot the amd64 one into the livecd.Â*
The only thing that's change since then is a put a new drive in the
laptop.Â* But I've put the old one back in
to see if I can again boot into the live cd, and no go.Â* No bios changes have been made.Â* Im lost. Please help.
