Right, didn't have much luck with the google-fu I normally do, so here I am.
I recently decided to finally finish a job I had started about 3 months ago, namely installing ubuntu as a dual boot with windows 7 on a 1.5 terabyte drive. The intention was to have windows 7 for games and normal windows crap, ubuntu for streamlined beauty that I had come to love back in the 8.X days, and a portion dedicated to just storage (used to have a fat32 partition that held about 300 gigs of books, loved it, that was a long time ago though.)
Anyway, got it installed, went to boot it up, punched in my password and was greeted by...a frozen desktop.
I've tried doing recovery mode, I've tried redoing the partition and I've tried yelling at it (didn't solve the problem, but I sure felt better).
When it boots, it loads per normal until it gets to desktop, then it just sits. My mouse moves, my keyboard clacks and registers being plugged in, but there is no activity what-so-ever. I figured it might be related to my graphics card (AMD Radeon HD 6900) not having its driver automatically installed, but I really don't know how to go about it.
So yeah, boots fine until it gets to desktop, then it might as well be a stationary image. I can't open anything, I can't bring anything, and I can't click anything. It just sits.
