I have recently purchased an HP Pavilion with a Radeon HD 6470M card that is not supported. Until I found that out I reinstalled Ubuntu several times and eventually got some basic drivers to work. Due to a software I installed, I made some tweaks and broke it again, and now I can't install Ubuntu.
To try fix the problem I loaded Win7 (I'm dual booting), and reformatted (slow) the Ubuntu partition. I subsequently lost the boot for Win7, which I fixed.
However, every time I try to install Ubuntu 11.04 it either displays a black screen (doesn't even go as far as letting me choose to "use ubuntu without installing"), or stops loading saying that it has "Bad target number". I even tried the Alternate CD, which installed Ubuntu but will not go past the GRUB (even when I use "nomodeset").
I have absolutely no idea what else to try.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
