When connected to a pc moniter i have no issues. i took the unit down to connect to my sony flat via hdmi. when i powered on the machine it booted up, the purple screen, ubuntu logo then it goes into a black screen. Asks for username, then password. the only option is to ctrl alt and del, which restarts and through the same cycle.
any idea what the issue maybe>
It is a dual boot machine with F18 installed on /dev/sda3. In order to boot F18, I have created (during F18 installation) an MBR on a USB stick. So now when I insert the USB stick, my laptop boots F18 system (otherwise it boots Win7). MBR on HDD boots only Win7 and I do not want to touch or modify it.
