I have brought a new computer with No Operating System with the intention of installing Ubuntu 12.10 and quite excited about it.
New computer is a Zoostorm AMD A4 3300 Dual Core
Despite trying with both a bootable USB and a DVD with Ubuntu 12.10 on them, the computer will ask if I want to install or try it then when I click on install it freezes and does nothing more on a black screen or the purple screen which merely shows "Ubuntu".
When I try to install a Windows 7 Pro from DVD it has no problems.
I am suspecting a clash with hardware but any ideas would be welcome as I really do want to use Ubuntu and not Windows 7 on this machine and brought for the sole purpose of this.
