I have a new PC with the specs as indicated below. I am ready to do a clean install of UBUNTU, but wanted to make sure it was compatible with my hardware first, so I selected "Try Ubuntu". I am using the latest download 16.04.1 as of yesterday. The symptom is a lot of churning of the DVD drive and ending with a blank screen.
The configuration now is Windows 10 (ugh) with the OS installed on the SSD and all my documents, pictures etc on the 1TB raid 1.
Perhaps I can't test this in "Try Ubuntu" mode? If not are these hardware specs supported?
