Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

While trying to install Ubuntu 14.04 Desktop via USB key or DVD Drive, I see a blurred colorful screen after the Ubuntu installation logo in the installation process and it simply hangs there.

I have an Nvidia GT 240 in a newer HP Z Workstation with Xeon E5 processor, and have tried both via VGA connection and HDMI connection- both yield screen with colorful static.

The USB and DVD Disc work fine as I tested them on a 10 year old Compaq, so I know it's specific to that machine with the issue.

Is there any fix or workaround?

Thanks
