I tried both 64 bit and 32 bit for 12.04 LTS and just can't get it to get out of the BIOS. The screen flashes about every 5 seconds or so, and absolutely nothing happens. Is there anyway for me to fix this issue?
I'm having the same problem also and have tried searching all over for a solution. One way to work temporarily is to remove "quiet splash" from the command line in the grub menu and press f10 to begin booting. When it fails and prints (initramfs) enter exit and the boot will continue.
Unfortunately this isn't a great way to operate but it's a workaround.
Does anyone have a real solution?
