multiple linux distro, Install stalling in high end configuartion


Hy !
I got a new config for Xmas but since I wasnt able to manage a proper linux install
I try a variety of distro here the result:
Linux mint 11 32bit install Stall (cd use previously and working)
linux mint 12 64bit stall
Backtrack 4 normal install stall / compatibility install complete but low graphic (cd use previously and working)
fedora 11 stall (cd use previously and working)
fedora 16 stall in normal mode / compatibility install but gnome dont start
ubuntu 9.04 install ok but low graphic

the differente version stall aproximatively at the same point during the booting of the disk just after the USB driver / component are detected, if I plug unplug some usb device it react by giving the driver or an unplunging message.

I thought for a moment the probleme might come from the USB 3.0 driver so I swith the 3.0 off on the bios, no change

my config is :
Intel Core i5 2500K
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti
Asus P8Z68-V LX
8 Go RAM

if anyone has an Idea plz, my aim would be a WinXP/7/mint multi boot (I have no PB with the multi boot thx)

for information no problem for the installation of XP or 7 (except a AHCI driver for XP, resolved)

by advance Thx

I'd be looking at the video drivers more than the usb 3.

After few other try with different configuration it seems in fact that the stalling is due to the graphic card..

so here the question how to force the install to use the proprietary driver ???

You can't force the installer to use the proprietary drivers, since no installer CD that I know of comes with them pre-installed.
I would try it this way:
- Download a installer CD with a text-mode installer. I don't know about Mint and Fedora, but for Ubuntu the Alternate CD is available. Make sure to use the alternate version, not desktop/server.

- Burn it to a CD and boot from it.
- Install in text mode.
- Reboot into your new system, but make sure to use the recovery option in your bootloader to boot to text-mode. It may be necessary to add the nomodeset option to the bootloader configuration.
- Now install and activate the proprietary drivers with
Code:
sudo jockey-text -e xorg:nvidia-current
-Reboot and have fun

At which point do you get that error-message?
Please provide as much info as possible when posting things, that makes it much easier for us to help you.

Sorry !
So the message is prompting when I enter the command line You give me in the console on the ubuntu recovery mode ( I was installing the alternate CD when you post your post)
but to be truthful I m not sure I choose the right option on the recovery mode
selected the remount option, then the command line
is it correct todo so ?
and I dont really know how to change nomodeset... and I dont know what it does..

No, and the driver from NVidia will be no help here, since Nvidia currently still refuses to support Optimus technology on Linux.
If you are able to disable the Nvidia graphics in your BIOS you may at least be able to use the laptop with its Intel graphics.

First is not Laptop
Second I try with the graphic card disable and I get the same result... so maybe my problem dont come from my graphic card ...
Win7 64bit is working properly
Any ideas I could try ? others BIOS parameters to change ?
I already try with/without AHCI, different Video configuration
did any one as successfully install linux on a Asus P8Z68-V LX ?? if yes could you give me your distro and your BIOS configuration

Sorry, I mixed that with a different thread I was answering to. Forget that part about Optimus.

Ok after N try I manage to install Ubuntu 10.04 but i have a PB with the ICEauthority
"could not update ICEauthority file /home/usernam/.ICEauthority"

the fact I'm using a shared /home partition can be the reason ??
--->apparently because the fedora pattion has the same probleme now .....
