I'm having trouble installing 12.04.1 on my HP Pavilion dv4 1514dx.
The installation crashed after copying files and just as configuring
apt started. I tried to report the crash details but the message said that my Ubuntu version is not the authentic version and thus the crash can't be reported.
I have tried both 32 and 64 bit version of 12.04.1, and even 32 bit versions of 12.04, 11.04, and 10.04. They all have the same type of crash with version 12.04.1.
All Ubuntu ISO images were burned to disk and were installed via an external DVD drive. 12.04.1 was also installed from a USB (created using LinuxLive USB Creator). Also, my laptop does not have USB 3.0 ports, only USB 2.0 ports.
I also tried to install 12.04.1 on my old Acer laptop (both from external DVD drive and USB) and it works like a charm. No problem occurs. So I believe this is not ISO image or disk problem.
The crashes are very consistent. They all appear during configuring
apt, just after copying files.
Did Ubuntu have any issue with HP laptops in general? Or is my laptop so special? I have no problem with Windows 7, but I can't install Windows XP either (BSOD right away).
If there is any information you guys need, please let me know.
