I'm running Windows XP and Ubuntu 11.10 as a dual boot, however, at the grub screen, the only way to boot Ubuntu is to select recovery mode and then select resume normal boot.
If I select the proper way to boot Ubuntu however, the screen goes black and then after a while goes to a screen with some text that looks like a terminal screen.
How do I make it so this does not happen?
I just installed it using the disk I had made back when I dual booted my other computer awhile back, and I just partioned my disks in the setup.
When I'm in the text mode I think it is fully functional because when I go Ctrl + Alt + F1 it gives me the option to login, but its all text based.
