I have a new home build with the following hardware: Memory: (16GB - 2 of Corsair Vengeance 8 GB ( 2 x 4 GB ) DDR3 1866 MHz (PC3 15000) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM) Mobo: (ASUS LGA 1155 - Z68 - PCIe 3.0 and UEFI BIOS Intel Z68 ATX DDR3 2200 LGA 1155 Motherboards P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3) CPU: (Intel Core i7-2700K 3.5 GHz LGA 1155 Processor BX80623I72700K) Graphics card: (NVIDIA Quadro 4000 by PNY 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express Gen 2 x16 DVI-I DL, Dual DisplayPort and Stereo OpenGL, DirectX, CUDA, and OpenCL Profesional Graphics) HDD: (Seagate 1TB SATA) DVD drive: (Lite-On LightScribe 24X SATA DVD+/-RW Dual Layer Drive IHAS424-98)
I tried to install Ubuntu 11.10 by downloading the iso file and burning a DVD. It starts with the first screen (install ubuntu, try without install and check drive). If I select either of this the DVD drive blinks for a while and then system freezes. No installation!
After some search, I found the graphics card is conflicting. So I removed the graphics card (NVIDIA Quadro 4000) and booted the install DVD. Everything worked fine and I was able to install Ubuntu 11.10. But this way I can not use the NVIDIA graphics card.
Any help in fixing this will be very much appreciated Thx
