Which computers are guaranteed to work?
Would that be the most common branded p.c and if so what model
I have a custom built P.C which has a 64 bit Gigabyte motherboard, and intel dualcore 2.5ghz processor and nvidia gforce 9400 card. So far I have managed to get 9.10 to install but have to use distro upgrade to get later versions. And 11.10 wont boot normally, I get a screen full stuff ending in checking battery state. The only way I can get that to work is to select previos versions then the first option in the grub. The main annoyance with 11.10 on my pc is startup manager cant be set, so it will always boot into error message as that is default. I like my set up to boot into windows7 by default or I choose ubuntu. Its just annoying so I have down graded to 10.04 and think I will have to stick with that till I need a new P.C or LTS runs out
