Can't install ubuntustudio. Video card problem?


Really don't know if this is the right forum to post... maybe the ubuntu section would have been better, but I think it's about hw so...

Got myself a new PC:

videocard nvidia geforce 7300 gt
mobo ASUS M2N-E SLI
bla bla...

I tried to install the latest ubuntustudio 7.10 but it doesn't work. I mean It can't go ahead with the installation. When I choose the install option, it stops with a black screen and reboots continuously!

I tried to install the traditional Ubuntu 7.10... well it's the same...

tried with many options like vga=vesa or vga=771 or whatever... no way! Very strange as I've installed Ubuntu on at least 7 computers (laptop and desktop) with no problem!

Any help?

OBVIOUSLY I won't give up... if there's no solution I'll simply change computer as the seller told me it was full linux compatible...

Thanks
Luca

Where did the seller get their information? An extensive search on the ASUS website reveals that not only do they not make any such claims, but rather, the opposite- they've not developed any Linux drivers for the M2N-E SLI MoBo, nor do they support installing Linux on it.

Hope this helps...

Problem solved.
Incredible... I really feel bad about this...

It was not about the MODO or the graphic card... it was about the Hard Disk!! I changet it with another one identical, and now everything works perfectly!

But... how can it be that Ubuntu Studio installation program simply reboots not giving any information?

Nevermind... anyway, only a problem of a fucked up HD!
