I was trying install Ubuntu 12.04 after formatting the partitions where Ubuntu was stored. I tried re-installing and install process fails. I tried again with the "nomodeset" option and I get a couple errors saying " microcode: failed to load". I can't even do the "Try Ubutnu" Option without the install hanging. I am using the same install CD that I used the first time. I don't want to format the entire drive because I have another OS on a different partition of the same disk. Not sure what I can do.
I decided I had enough of my programs on another drive that is separate from the boot drive and felt good about deleting everything on the drive with dban.
