I tried to install Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit from a pen drive. I have an Intel i7 2600k cpu and I use the integrated HD Graphics GPU.

However, the screen always turns black if I select "Run Ubuntu from pendrive" or "Install ubuntu on hdd".

I know that there are some issues with that chip but I don't have any other GPU. So how can I install and run Ubuntu on my system?
