Installing linux Fedora/Ubunutu - black screen
Yesterday I decided to start a linux project, so I took out an old computer to just run an install on.
I have no cd reader on this computer so I decided to put Ubuntu on a USB mem I have.
Using "Universal-USB-Installer" I put it there and it seems to work on my other computers. But as I first tried to run Ubuntu from the usb it just got a black screen (or sometimes it would just look like the text mashes together). After that I tried installing and not just running, same thing happens. So I'm reading abit about it and though hey maybe my graphics card is too old, so I decided to try Fedora 15 install. Downloaded the ISO file, used the Liveusb-creator recommended on the webpage to put fedora on the usb. And I keep getting the same problem.
I can't install using basic graphics, I can't rescue, I can't install a new install.
"0.238230] Trying to unpack rootfs image as initramfs..."
Then just black screen.
