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
http://www.amazon.com/SABERTOOTH-P67...5538969&sr=8-3

CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
http://www.amazon.com/Intel-i7-2600-...5539049&sr=1-2

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 550 Ti FPB 1024 MB GDDR5
http://www.amazon.com/EVGA-GeForce-M...5539115&sr=1-1

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB DDR3 (2x4GB)
http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengea...5539172&sr=1-3

Optical Drive: Samsung Blu-Ray 12x BD-ROM
http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-12XRea...5539320&sr=1-1

PSU: Corsair TX750W, Series 80
http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-CMPSU-...5539677&sr=1-1

Case: Cooler Master HAF ATX Mid Tower
http://www.amazon.com/Cooler-Master-...5539441&sr=1-4

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.

I tried Mint 12 Xfce again, as I remembered it gave some messages before freezing. Here is what was last on the screen before it froze:

I hope this helps.
