I just purchased a new PC yesterday, an ASUS Q500A. I downloaded Ubuntu 12.10, burned it to a DVD, and tried to install it. As expected, I came to a screen that asked if I wanted to try, install, OEM install, or check the disc. After going to try, the DVD spins up as if it's about to boot the system and then immediately spins down again to leave a black screen.
I've tried several boot options:
quiet splash --
nolacpi results in the DVD drive not spinning up at all. The rest have no effect.
Some stats about the system:
- Intel i5-3210M processor
- Intel Integrated Graphics 4000
Any tips on other things to try?
