I am trying to install ubuntu on an older tower PC I have from USB, Its horrible slow, I can bear with the waiting at the boot screen for 5 minutes but when I get into the install menus it takes for ever to get to the next page of the install process, I've left my computer on all night and I work up the next morning and it was finally on the next page. However I tried to get to the next page of install and it was back to waiting for hours.
My linux key is made with unetbootin on a linux machine, so I am trying to boot with the tag
acpi=noirq but it isn't helping I am still at the splash screen for...going on 5 minutes now. now I'm not even sure if I entered the tag in properly, It says hit tab to edit options and I just typed the tag in a pressed enter.
