Blank screen at ubuntu 10.04 startup

Hi everyone i'm new in this forum, i recently was trying to install the ubuntu 10.04 in a machine with a 2x xeon processor but i'm getting some errors.
In the installation first (and second, third...) try, the splash screen just freeze.
After a lot of tries, just when i actived the acpi=off, noapic and nolapic, i finaly mounted the virtual desktop but after the succesful installation the machine wont boot! Only thing i get is a blank screen with a blinking dot on the left top.

Plz guys, anyone can help me on that? it probaly somenthing related to the things i actived in grub boot, but i'm new to linux and can't find the problem!

Thx all


Hi i'm back, now i can acess the ubuntu via hdd. I edited the boot on grub menu removing the "quite splash" from it and added "nolapic" in there place.

Only thing left was the OS are now too slow. He works fine for 5 seconds and completely freeze for 2 seconds, then work for 5 secs again.

Anyone knows what could it be?

I doubt this is the issue because I don't think it would run at all in this case, but are you sure that you're not trying to run a 64bit version of Ubuntu on a 32bit system?


blank, screen, startup
