I have at work several xserv doing nothing, and I want to install Ubuntu. I booted from the CD choose Efi and edited the kernel option to add nomodeset so it boots normally.
Then the kernel loaded fine until it hit the Ubuntu GUI installer which gave me unreadable Screen and colors, however I can see the mouse moving and if I hit enter on keyboard the installer jumps to other page in the installation but not readable at all. I tried kernel Options: video=vesa and other video modes But still same! any ideas regarding this?
Screen gets like this:
Here is a youtube video of what happens: If I do not add nomodeset the kernel will load halfway thru and freezes at certain point. If I add nomodeset all works fine except the graphics, even on ubuntu server which suppose to be fully cli mode.
