I've been using 11.10 32-bit for a while, and found some spare DIMMs lying around. I put them in my machine and it detected them fine, but obviously 32-bit Ubuntu couldn't.
Rather than re-install I tried to use the PAE kernel but this toasted my machine.
So I decided to just go ahead and install 64-bit version. Trouble is the LiveCD (or USB) won't boot. It loads the desktop and mouse icon before taking me to a high-res text screen that says:
Stopping System V runlevel compatibility [ OK ]
It then hangs here.
If I use the 32-bit version it loads the desktop fine!
What can I do?
- Asus P5Q Pro
- Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz x4
- GeForce 9600GT
- 4x 1GB DDR2 RAM Modules
