Ubuntu 12.04.02 i386 live CD "Try without install" hangs at splash screen. I looked at output and it hanged after

Stopping System V runlevel compatibility [ok]

Then i tried 15.04 amd64 live CD and it got stuck again.

I had previously installed Windows 7 32 bit and Ubuntu 12.04 installed on my PC with the same configuration. I now have Windows 8.1 Pro x64 installed.

Hardware Specifications as follows

Intel DG41RQ Motherboard, Intel Core 2 Duo 2.97 GHz CPU E7500, 2GB x 2 DDR2 RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS GPU

Please help. I need a linux OS running not as a virtual OS on my system. I also tried Fedora 21 and it didn't work either.


Try if it boots with mode "ACPI disabled" or with less resolution in graphics card or simply boot with VESA mode ?

  • Worked with "acpi disabled" but took too much time. Thanks @dschinn1001 – Suman Mitra Jun 17 '15 at 11:32
