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.
