My problem is very similar to the one described here.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 64bits from a LiveUSB drive. Before anything I checked the md5sum for the ISO file, which was fine. I also checked the USB for errors and no error were detected.
(NB: I am trying to install this as a dual boot with Windows 8, install in EFI)
I had problems with the display, so from Grub I used the options 'nomodeset' and 'xforcevesa' which brings me to the install GUI.
I start the install and set up all the relevant partitions and the install starts correctly and then stops at this step:
ubuntu ubiquity: update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.5.0-17-generic
Here are the specs of my machine:
- Acer Revo L80
- CPU: Intel Core i3-2377M @ 1.50 Ghz
- Ram: 8Gb
- Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 3000
I strongly suspect the problem comes from the integrated graphics card not being recognised, but not sure what to do about it...
Thanks in advance for any suggestion or fix!
