I have HP 1000 - i3-2370M notebook. I tried to install Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10 but non of them gets installed. I have some success with 13.04 beta version.

Actually when I try to boot from Ubuntu, it starts but after few second screen become black and nothing happens. Then I tried with External LCD then I was able to see Ubuntu and it helped me to install Ubuntu. Once I installed Both Laptop LCD and External LCD show me desktop and I can work fine but when I remove external LCD and reboot Notebook then again it stuck on Black Screen even Ubuntu is installed and if again I add external LCD then i can work on Ubuntu.. But this process only work with 13.04 beta. 12.04 or 12.10. Does not work in any way. I tested 64 bit Ubuntu.

If have window 7 and tried to install ubuntu then i download ubuntu but when it extract then it give some error and install does not install anything.

HP 1000 has Legacy BIOS mode. I think Ubuntu can be installed on UEFI BIOS Mode. If you have that then you can also install Ubuntu along-with Windows 8/8.1/10. – Imtiaz Ahmad Mar 11 at 17:58

You could install via:

And you could install via USB.

Relese Notes:

I would reccomend 12.04. Have a little try before you install Ubuntu!

Enjoy Ubuntu!
