Failing to boot Linux distros w/ P67 chipset/SB Core I7
Please go easy as I'm a bit of a beginner. I have built a gaming PC that can boot into Windows 7, it's an MSI motherboard with a P67 chipset and I have the Intel I7 processor.
It fails to boot into several distro of Linux, (in normal or failsafe mode), will not boot Ubuntu 11.10, older versions of Ubuntu, Parted Magic.
I find it hard to believe that there could be a fault with my fresh out of the box processor - I also have Nvidia Geforce GTX580, I'm wondering is it possible that none of my distros are able to run on this device.
Ran Memtest86 and haven't found any issues.
PartedMagic gives me this error message
"The pmagic-6.6sqfs file could not be found"
Any help would be greatly appreciated
