I have already successfully installed Ubuntu 10.10 on my laptop and it works fine.
I attempted to get my desktop PC to dual boot Windows and Ubuntu but found that neither the 32 or 64 bit install images will boot/install successfully.
The startup script locks on 'initializing core #2' (or 1 or 3).. once I saw it say 'ok' at the end but it still locks there.
I have tried to change the boot sequence by inserting 'debug' and 'acpi-off' into txt.cfg in both isolinux and syslinux folders but no changes were obvious during the boot.. as far as it got.
The pc is built with an abit IP35 motherboard and nvidia 8600GT gfx card.
Does anyone have any suggestion of what else I can change to get the install working?
