failed install Ubuntu7.10 from ISO file in hard disk

Bug #163598 reported by linfengfeiye on 2007-11-18
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I have downloaded the iso file and install from grub and have successfully installed Ubuntu7.10 on my friend's computer

When i using the same method to install it on my computer. i can't go forward

the problem i can know from the screen is like this

"have detected the screen shutdown 6 times during last 90 seconds, something may be wrong ,it will pause 2 minute "

when i choose 'ok' ,after 2 minute , the screen always shutdown(that not means black screen) ,and after a while ,the message appear again.

and then in this cycle

I think if Ubuntu7.10 do not support my mainboard?

 CPU AMD64 dual 4000+
mainboard C690T,AMD Randeon 1200

Still not sure of the package, but it looks like some problems with kernel itself.
A somewhat similar problem has been encountered on my friend's laptop though I dont remember the issue.

Hi linfengfeiye,

You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Care to test the most recent Hardy Heron 8.04 release - . Please let us know your results. Thanks in advance.

1) If you are comfortable installing packages on your own, the linux-image-2.6.27-* package is currently available for you to install and test.


2) The upcoming Alpha5 for Intrepid Ibex 8.10 will contain this newer 2.6.27 Ubuntu kernel. Alpha5 is set to be released Thursday Sept 4. Please watch for Alpha5 to be announced. You should then be able to test via a LiveCD.

Please let us know immediately if this newer 2.6.27 kernel resolves the bug reported here or if the issue remains. More importantly, please open a new bug report for each new bug/regression introduced by the 2.6.27 kernel and tag the bug report with 'linux-2.6.27'.
