I have a lenovo z 480 and half of the time ubuntu will not boot, only displays this error message
Error ata1.00: failed to enable AA (error_mask = 0x1
and sometimes the screen goes black with blinking cursor. I've tried several distros (kde and gnome and always equals the start and end times others do not. All use the grub 2, the only distro that starts 100% all the time is mageia not if using the old grub but it is very annoying not to be able to use the distro that you like best.
