http://ubuntuforums.org – Howdy, - I have an older ACER laptop that's been running Ubuntu 10.10 for a couple years. Now that I'm getting the no support notices, I want to install Ubuntu 12.04. The boot freezes just after I get a notice about b43 drivers. I've tried various combinations in the F6 menu with no luck. Here's something strange: I have a Dell Mini9 with a blown SSD. I have 12.04 installed on an 8G USB. When I boot the ACER with this USB stick, it runs great. No WiFi and probably other hardware inop, but it looks pretty good. Is there something I can look at while it's running from t (Hardware)
