Loading Ubuntu 7.04 onto Laptop: ACPI issues!
I've been wanting linux to dual boot on my laptop for ages, but until recently the HDD has been too small. I have just got a bigger HDD, installed XP SP2 and then tried to install Ubuntu 7.04.
The installation seems to go fine until it looks for the ACPI modules. Then progress halts, soon to be followed by the optical drive going quiet. Hard power off is the only solution from that point.
I have tried another distro as well, but it come up with exactly the same issue.
Over to you guys and girls... I am lost.
