ubuntu help


Recommended Posts

I want to run ubuntu linux on microsoft virtual pc, but I'm having some trouble.

I start Virtual PC and mount the ISO and get this screen. . .


I click on install ubuntu

I get the loading screen. . .


After it loads I get this screen. . .


What is that and why did it happen?

I thought the Ubuntu installer didn't go into X.

My guess is you need to prevent the kernel from using the framebuffer device. That probably means selecting the 'safe graphics mode' option.

It's what made a number of Linuxes work on my laptop...

xorg 7.2 doesn't like vm's

Runs fine in VmWare. Had Ubuntu installed in about 25 minutes.
