I installed the latest release of the Ubuntu Server 12.04.1 LTS. All loads fine. I chose the LAMP install, also goes fine. To test the Apache 2 I need to use a gui desktop so I loaded the Gnome GUI and restarted the system. The Server boots up, starts the Gnome desktop and locks.

What do you mean by "locks"? –  Kalle Elmér Nov 15 '12 at 17:46
Need to know exactly what you mean by "loaded the Gnome GUI" and how you installed it, please. Be specific. –  Jim Salter Nov 26 '12 at 3:15
