Cannot install Ubuntu 7.10 on ThinkPad T61p


I have a T61p with the nVidia FX 570M and I cannot get Ubuntu 7.10 to install correctly.

My laptop specs are:
Model# 6459CTO THINKPAD T61 WIDESCREEN-1Y
INTEL CORE 2 DUO
15.4 WUXGA TFT
NVIDIAQUAD FX 570M W/WWAN


I have tried all the suggestions I've seen on ThinkWiki here:
http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Talk:I...a_ThinkPad_T61

I have also posted here:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=649609 and here:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=529379

I have installed Ubuntu in VMWare and I have installed PC-BSD on the T61p. But I cannot get Ubuntu (GUI) to install correctly on the T61p even if I try the vesa driver.

Success at last

I finally got Ubuntu installed on my T61p with nVidia 570M. I wish I could offer some feedback on what made the difference, but it was just a lot of effort and time over several days. No one thing seemed to do the trick except persistence.
