there a though one: I've bough a new computer with the following configuration:

ASUS Rampage III Extreme
Core i7 950
ZOTAC AMP! GeForce GTX 560
HAF 922

After installation of any Linux I can't lauch it! After grub screen, when it's supposed to launch system it gets stuck with black-screen(debian) or purple-sceen(ubuntu).

I installed various versions of Ubuntu, Debian with and without X, Fedora. Every time it's the same: total freeze after grub.

Can anyone help me, please? I don't want to stuck with windows (which is running perfectly as never)!

Do you get a login prompt if you press alt+ctrl+f1 when you have that purple screen? If so, then you might have to install a driver for your VGA. – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Oct 10 '11 at 8:30

Could I suggest checking your BIOS for bootloading settings. By default configurations are set for DOS, change to it Other/Linux/etc. I hope it works.
