Multiple distros + Wubi will not boot on desktop, hardware issues?
Hello all. I have tried Kubuntu, Xubuntu, Ubuntu 11.10 & 12.04, Zenwalk, Slackware, Mint, and Salix on my desktop. Not a single distro has been able to boot on my machine. For the record, I do have Windows 7 Professional 64-bit installed and running very smoothly. So I fear this is a hardware detection problem with Linux. Here are my specs:
Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth P67 LGA 1155 SATA 6Gbps
CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti FPB 1024 MB GDDR5
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 (2x4GB)
Optical Drive: Samsung Blu-Ray 12x BD-ROM
PSU: Corsair TX750W, Series 80
Case: Cooler Master HAF ATX Mid Tower
I have tried both Live CDs and install CD/DVDs to no avail. Windows installed with no issues, but I did first try Linux before Windows was even on the drive. By all means, if you are needing more information, please say so and I will try my best to supply you with it. If there is any component here that sticks out as potentially being the trouble-maker, I would greatly appreciate the help. Thank you in advance. :)
What exactly do you mean with "not able to boot", please be more specific. At which stage of the boot time occurs the problem, what exactly is happening. Please use a distro that has no fancy bootscreen for determining this, so that you can see the actual boot messages.
From a hardware point of view, there is nothing special with your machine, so we really need more information on what exactly happens when you try to boot.
