Was not able to install ubuntu 12.04 LTS or 11.10 on SSD OCZ Vertex 3 120GB

Installer crashed. There is no more information. Installer promised to report issue to Ubuntu.

Do I have to prepare something to install Ubuntu? Hardware is quite fresh:

  • CPU: i5 2500
  • Motherboard: ASUS P8H67-M LX/SI
  • Video Card: Asus NVIDIA EN210 SILENT/DI/1GD3/V2

I would check the installation media (CD?) first.... – belacqua Aug 27 '12 at 20:43
I tried 12.04 and 11.10. media is ok. We have 12.04 from same source installed on same machine. – Aram Aug 28 '12 at 11:20
The problem was in firmware. – Aram Aug 28 '12 at 19:11
Thanks for the updates, Aram. Good to know. – belacqua Aug 30 '12 at 12:10 this was the SSD I was talking about.

I hope this will be helpful who will use ssd with Ubuntu 11.10 or 12.04 LTE!-Bootable-Linux-based-tools-for-OCZ-SSD-s&p=714069&viewfull=1#post714069

We had to set AHCI in BIOS to be able to update firmware. The rest was same as usually.
