I had installed Ubuntu 12.10 i386 in my Dell Studio XPS 1647 without any big issue. Last days i installed WOW but i got very low fps, i noticed opensource driver was installed and i tried to install catalyst. Of course i messed up everything and i could never get my X working again...
Since then i tried to make a fresh install of:
- Ubuntu 12.04 i386
- Ubuntu 12.10 i386
- Ubuntu 12.10 amd64
However, I can´t even get the ubuntu installer running. I tried all the options nomodeset, noapic, splash no, etc.. but nothing works. It always hangs during splash screen.
I downloaded the MinimalCD for Ubuntu 12.10 amd64 and i finally installed the system using the command line installer, however when i tried to boot the first time same issue occurs.
I only know that the system hangs just after mounting the SWAP partition.
I tried to enter using the ubuntu recovery mode option from grub.
I even tried to install ubuntu from the MinimalCD and replace xorg and install legacy drivers using the repository ppa:makson96/fglrx.
I tried with this
Nothing works! At some point i think maybe my video card was broken, but i have dual boot and everything work nice in my Windows 7 installation.
Any idea about this issue?
