I bought my very first laptop last week which comes pre-installed with Windows Vista Home Basic.
My original plan was to erase the whole thing and put Ubuntu on it. Tried it couple of days ago but didn’t work out.
After the boot up from the CD (requested a copy of Ubuntu 7.10) it displayed the little cross hair, then nothing…
I thought it’s probably the Vista… So I put in XP.. coz I tried installing Ubuntu over XP before, but the same thing happened!
So I wonder if this is a hardware issue on my laptop? It’s a NEO Empriva 540SVBe.
Will do a search later.
