Bug Description

Re: Intrmfs New update borks!! & RC1 cannot boot...
I am getting the same issue with RC1,, that is the video is set wrong at boot (the screen is displaying larger fonts than previous) then I get a flash like it is trying to reset the video then everything dies.. I have a somewhat older gateway mx6028 laptop with Intel integrated graphics and a new 160 gb hard drive.

I was able to install beta 2 but painfully; installing all the open gl updates last.. I was running well.... and then the Intramfs update came and blew me a way...

Just received Intramfs update, within the hour (4/22/10 11:47 central) , installs correctly on a new 10.04 install but now machine cannot boot,, <<< after this I tried the RC1 which just got posted...

It is somehow resetting the video it appears as the boot screen comes up in different (larger) type. then blanks and all activity stops,, I have been having similar problems if I apply all updates after an initial install of 10.04 but if I hold the opne gl modules the system will work but a backup taken with Remastersys made after the open GL installs will not work while the one made prior to the open GL install will restore the system so I'm guessing some sort of erroneous HW reset sequence
