I wanted to install Ubuntu 12.04 on my system, but it won't work. After starting the installation it crashes with following message: Driver supports precise vblank timestamp query.

Google says that there's a problem with my Radeon X1300, and I have to use the nomodeset parameter for installing. After using the nomodeset parameter, a window shows up which says my graphics mode is set to Low Graphics and I have to manually reconfigure my graphics. I press the button: Run in Low Graphics for one session. Then an information window appears which says my monitor has to reconfigure and will be in Standby for one minute. But after pressing the OK button nothing happens. After 20 minutes I can shut down the PC without installing Ubuntu 12.04. Is there anything I can do? Ubuntu 11.10 works without any problems.
