I wonder if anyone ever tried to install ubuntu [11.10 in my case] in a Sony Vaio VPC 21EFX, preferably using wubi.
I tried several ubuntu builds but none of them seem to work. I just get a black screen after install.
I also tried booting from a flash drive and get the same error.
All help is apreciated.
I tried wubi installs multiple times with the images below: ubuntu-11.10-desktop-i386.iso ubuntu-11.10-desktop-amd64.iso kubuntu-11.10-desktop-amd64.iso
To install an image what I did was I put the image I wanted to install in a folder with wubi.exe and ran wubi from there.
I did MD5 check all iso images I've downloaded.
I also tried a boot from a flash drive but only got a "black" screen [I follow ubuntu instructions to install this tool and mount the image in the flash drive http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3]
I'm running Windows 7 64bits with SP1
The only msg I get is after I choose Ubuntu from the boot menu after the installation, before I get the black screen I see this:
Try (hd0,0): NTFS5: No wubildr Try (hd0,1): NTFS5: No wubildr Try (hd0,2): NTFS5: error: "prefix" is not set.
