Bug Description

I am banging my head against the wall trying to install Precise Pangolin on my ASUS EEE 1201HAB notebook
 The live CD boots fine and plays the sample media files which is more than Oneiric Ocelot ever did
I gave up trying to get the sound working with OcelI am trying to install Pangolin as a treble boot keeping the existing XP and Narwhal partititions with shich I am getting useful work done

The installation runs to completion but I am unable to re boot the computer
by selecting the generic pae kernel

Selecting the recovery pae kernel brings up a text menu
when I selected continue boot the top half or the graphics screen shows up
with the bottom remaining as text

I have tried beta2, the latest Ubuntu 386 desktop, the latest alternate 386 install
all with the same result

This is defintitely a single core machine

I have given up all patience with this supposedly LlTS which to me is not ready for prime time

Narwhal and Lynx installed with no problems

I do not much care for Unity and Gnome 3 which unnecessarily complicate matters
I hope that dropping official Kubuntu support is just a rumour
