I have a Dell XPS 15z onto which I'm trying to install 11.10. I downloaded the 64 bit ISO image and used UNetbootin to create a bootable USB drive. I plug it in and it boots to the UNetbootin menu which looks like this:
My menu however, has the following options:
Default Help Try Ubuntu without installing Install Ubuntu Check disc for defects Test memory Boot from first hard disk Try Ubuntu without installing Install Ubuntu Check disc for defects
Yes, the last three are repeated.
It might also be important to note that this menu is displayed in a CLI at what looks like 80x30 characters.
When I select any of the options (even "Boot from first hard disk"), the menu stays the same, but the screen resolution changes so that now the menu (which previously took up the full screen) is not just in the top 1/16th of the screen. After that... nothing. The menu just sits there.
The fan on the computer fires up, so it sounds like it's working hard, but nothing ever changes on the screen, even after 15-20 minutes. The only thing I can do is hold the power button to turn it off.
Given that it appears to hang when the video resolution changes, might this have something to do with video card support? Is there anything I can do about this?
