I'm a big fan of Ubuntu. I've installed it on every computer I had. But they were always 32-bit computers. And I've never had an experience with 64-bit computers.

I've made a live USB and CD but with both I get the same error:


Hardware Specification:

  • Toshiba SDatellite L645D.
  • AMD Turion II P540 Dual-Core Processor.
  • 2.40 GHz.
  • 4.00 of RAM.

If you attempt to install the 32bit version, do you have the same issue? – fossfreedom Jun 23 '11 at 22:26
could you explain how you get to the error message? How far in the installation did you get? – Alvar Jun 23 '11 at 22:28

This is a bug according to what I've read on Launchpad:

The very last comment dated 16.06.2011 from Felix Griewald claims to have sorted the problem.

I confirm that the bug appears to be fixed in Linux Kernel 2.6.39

I installed the Ubuntu mainline kernel v2.6.39-oneiric and you also need fgrlx 2:8.850 (you can use the Ubuntu-X ppa).

Tested on Lenovo Y560 Tested about 3 reboots without AC plugged in - it seams to work.

thanks for the reply but thats not really helping me. I don't have ubuntu installed. I can't even load the live cd because I get that error. – Carlos Zapata Jun 22 '11 at 15:43
Sorry Carlos, I misunderstood. Did you burn the .ISO at the slowest speed possible?, doing that ensures that the image quality is perfect. – scouser73 Jun 22 '11 at 15:47
