First let me start off by saying that I am new to Linux so please attempt to keep any Linux specific jargon to a minimum or explain the terms :-D.
I am attempting to perform a dual install with Windows 7 already installed. I have set aside a 30 GB partition for the Ubuntu install.
Alienware m14x Nvidia gt 555m and Intel HD 3000 8GB RAM @ 1600mhz Second gen i7 @ 2.4ghz turbo to 3.5ghz
I have attempted to install with Wubi as well as from a USB stick several times each. I have attempted installing Wubi on my main Windows partition as well as the partition set aside for Ubuntu. I have attempted to install both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Ubuntu via the USB stick. Every single time the install process appears to stall out in the command prompt after a restart. When booting Wubi I can choose which OS I'd like to boot at which point I run through about 10 seconds of command prompt spam until the system simply stops.
When booting from USB I get the basic Ubuntu screen asking me to choose to either boot from USB or go ahead and install to hard disk and it does not matter which I choose. After about 25 seconds of command line spam the boot process spams the same message over again devd[insert number here]: timeout... it does this for two minutes until it states that the timeout has reached 120 seconds and stops.
I would really love to get this working and I do have a basic working knowledge of my Bios etc.... I just couldn't find anything specifically relating to the problem I'm describing. Regardless of my install method choice, the process seems to stall out during the command line loading but at different points.
Thanks in advance
