When I used the exe file to install it it works on first start. Then when I restart it and boot from it, I get a purple screen then it flashes to the login screen what happend to the ubuntu logo?
to put it simply, the graphic driver loads slower than the rest of the system. I fixed it with these directions.
I didn't not follow the directions from this particular website, I couldn't find the one I used but these are the correct direction. I have mine back and can now remove the "quiet splash" and see the boot messages if needed.
Edit: while there is an detailed explanation of why you might want to check out, I and going to copy and paste the instructions below in case the link expires.
