Asking for some help. Been beating my head on the wall for several days now. Trying to extend the life of my MAC PowerPC G5 (with OS 10.4) by installing Linux on its second hard drive (and then making it a dual boot system). Have gone here (http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/12.04.4/release/)and (http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/) to download the ISO files. Have then burned them to DVD-R with imgburn; to make a bootbale install dvd. So far have tried Ubuntu 12.04 and 14.04; and Lubuntu 12.04 and 14.04. I have the exact same issue with each. I boot to cdrom. Whether i type "live" or one of the other options (tab menu) or just hit ENTER, i get the same result. The black screen with white text runs; changes to a white screen with black text; then changes to a blank black screen. then it sits there forever. So it never installs at all. Before Ubuntu i tried both Debian 8.5 and the test version of Debian 8.5. Both install without an issue or error, but when i reboot after the install, i get a FAILED to start LOAD KERNEL MODULES error and the boot fails. And i did format\reinstall 3 times. So i feel like i am out of ideas here. I wanted Ubuntu or Ubuntu Studio, but at this point just want a working Linux distro.
Has anyone run into this before ? Have any suggestions ? Certainly appreciate any help. Thanks.
