I tried to install Ubuntu 11.10 on a Gateway machine and an Acer machine. In each case, I tried the same 1T hard drive. However, after the install, neither the Gateway nor the Acer would boot up to the Ubuntu log on screen - both stopped at the terminal, with a flashing underscore. Ubuntu worked fine on the Acer with a 320G hard drive. Will Ubuntu 11.10 install on a 1T hard drive?

Is that an internal drive? Did you try to boot from Live-CD and check if the drive is accessible? – bohdan_trotsenko Mar 4 '12 at 17:56
Actually, I found Ubuntu works fine on a 1T hard drive. During the installation, the boot drive was changed. When I boot from the drive with the OS, it works fine. – Nicled Mar 4 '12 at 19:00
