I'm trying to install Ubuntu Server 12.04 onto an old HP DL320 G2. This has a ATI Rage XL video card built in. Everything seems to install okay, but I'm having problems with booting.
Once the server starts booting, the screen goes black after posting, and nothing else is displayed-- no grub menu, error messages, etc. (I left it like that all night). If I hold down the [shift] key, 'loading Grub' is displayed, but once again nothing after that.
I have read several suggestions on how to fix this (and similar problems) by modifying the
/etc/default/grub file and then running
sudo update-grub. How can I run
update-grub if it doesn't seem to be booting all the way into linux?
I think there must be an error occurring, preventing it from fully starting. However, I can't see anything to know for sure.
