I want to dual boot my windows 7 desktop pc with ubuntu 12.04 or 14.04 so that I can run openFOAM CFD software. I have tried with a cd but no luck, the install just doesn't progress. the purple screen comes up, then disappears, some text appears on screen and then an underscore in the top left corner just starts flashing...nothing else happens.
Gigabyte's website says "Due to different Linux support condition provided by chipset vendors, please download Linux driver from chipset vendors' website or 3rd party website."
I'm stuck as I don't know which ones/haven't been able to find the drivers I need. I am very new to ubuntu and I'm not sure where to start. I have been having a lot of trouble installing ubuntu.
Here are my system specifications.
- Motherboard: Gigabyte z68xp-ud4 (rev1.3) (z68 express chipset)
- GPU: Gigabyte GTX780OC
- SSD: Intel 520 256GB (40GB to be partitioned for linux)
- RAM: Corsair vengeance low profile (16GB, 4x2GB, 1600Mhz)
- CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k
