I am helping a colleague who i having trouble installing ubuntu 10.10. He downloaded the ISO and installed into his memory stick. It works fine when he boots from the memory stick and uses it in live mode.
But whenever he installs it, at the end of installation (and on subsequent restarts) all he gets is a terminal. The terminal is quite usable, and he can work in terminal mode fine, but after a while even the terminal is lost and the screen goes completely blank.
We've tried installing it several times, but it always ends up this way. Can someone point out what is going wrong?
His machine is a Intel Core-2 Duo with a Foxconn motherboard with integrated graphics (Intel Ironlake chipset AFAIK).
