I'm trying to make dual boot system with Lenny (64bit) along with WinXP. I'm using one HDD with 2 partitions and installed first XP then Lenny.
Everything seems fine till the first boot after fresh install. Lenny starts to boot and after same point the screen goes blank and then is turned off and that's it...nothing happens. Happens so fast that I'm unable to see the exact messages on the screen. Maybe somewhere around staring anarcon?
Athlon64 X2 5400+
Asus M2V-MX motherboard
3GB DDR2 800
500GB WD SATA2 HDD
Radeon x800 GTO video
Can someone please help me with this issue? I reinstalled 2 times and it's the same. Really frustrating
WinXP is working fine though but I really really don't want it to be my OS...
another "hint" from today:
The same happens when I use "Try without installing" of Ubuntu 10.04(i386) Live CD. It starts loading and at some point turns off the monitor.
Tried also with 8.04(64bit): Boots till it reach something like "Settings sensor limits" and then it's stuck. I have consoles though (Ctrl+Alt+F1/2/3...).
