Posted 06-16-2011 at 07:23 AM by megasaputra

Finally, I can install Ubuntu 11.04. Although I have to install Linux Mint 11 in the second for dual booting. In Linux Mint, there is not addition 'nomodeset' command line in recovery mode. So, I add this command. Then I can boot Linux Mint.
In Ubuntu, there is not addition 'xforcevesa' command line in recovery mode like in Linux Mint. Then I add this when installing Ubuntu. After that, I can install successfully. Then, the computer must restart. Then for the first time, Ubuntu can boot....
