Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

This is a question I had since Ubuntu 11.04: how can I restore Ubuntu's boot logo? I installed it in four different PCs (one of them a VM, another of them, my actual installation on my Mac), and I look that the same thing happends every time I install Ubuntu: the Live CD boots showing the logo and the dots bar, but when I boot from the hard drive, I just see a magenta dye screen. What should I do?

I'm using Ubuntu 12.04 (iMac 21'5'' Late 2009; Virtualbox machine) and 11.10 (rest of PCs).

Does the boot actually complete until the login screen? In other words, is it only an aesthetic problem or does it impeach you to access your computer(s)? – Agmenor May 4 '12 at 7:05
It is called splash screen.This is a regular problem facing by many, me too.Linux Mint and Kubuntu splash screen works well in my system but Ubuntu shows a scrambled window.I think this is a driver issue.I tried to change the resolution but each change makes the window more scrambled. – beeju May 4 '12 at 7:19
