Built a desktop with following hardware: GIGABYTE AM3+ AMD 970A-D3 mobo AMD FX-8150 8-Core Black Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) EVGA GeForce GT 610 2048MB WD Blue 1 TB Desktop Hard Drive
The system seems happy running Windows 7 PRO 64 bit. Have been trying hard to install Ubuntu 12.10 AMD 64bit for the past few days. The problem is with the USB port shuts off (no power no comms) half way through after the grub boot loader. Booting with the DVD goes fine except the keyboard and mouse on the USB port shuts off. So cannot click on the install icon on the desktop when it appears. This happens on all the USB 2.0 ports. Have tried downloading the iso multiple times and used multiple USB sticks and DVD. Tried both legacy boot and UEFI. Have not been successful in installing Ubuntu.
Any ideas or answers?
