Any suggestions?


I recently built my first computer and put the UBUNTU OS on it. The PC has a pentium D 3.4 Ghz processor with 4GB RAM and a 1TB hard Drive. The UBUNTU OS was the 32 bit version of 10.10. I decided to change to the 64 bit version. I was able to burn a disk and load it up to the point it has the files copied and I have input my name and log in info. Then nothing the forward prompt will not inniteate and the installation stalls. I ahve burned several disks from different PC's withthe same result. I have been able to get into the 64 bit environment by starting the disc over and "Trying UBUNTU" but have not been able to get the system to operate properly from a cold boot.

Please, avoid using that kind of subjects, be more specific.

Could you successfully install the Ubuntu 10.10 32 bit version on that same machine? Did you try with another cd/dvd drive? Maybe the unit is faulty, not the cds.

Hi buckupngit,

I had the same trouble myself but with the 32 bit version and so did a few others. I found that if I used any caps in the login name the forward button gets greyed out. Hopefully this is your problem too and just inputting small letters should do the trick.

I changed all upper case letters to lower case in the "Who are you?" screen. still no forward prompt, and the lower bar says "Ready when you are."

Thumbs up Solved

I removed my full name in the box and used only my first name in lower case and the prompt came up. Thanks!!!
