I get a black screen (with backlight on) every time I try to boot up a LiveCD image from usb. I'm trying to install 13.10 and tried both 32 and 64 bit versions.
I can boot 12.04 LTS release using nomodeset option, but nothing seems to work on 13.10.
Here's what I tried so far:
- Adding nomodeset, modeset=0 option to the bootsection
- acpi=off, apci=off, noapci, and options like that
- radeon.modeset=1 and 0, i915.modeset=1 and 0, and all the other boot parameters I could find
I have a HP Envy 14 laptop with switchable graphics, here's my system specs:
