[ubuntu] problem installing on HP h8-1213

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Just bought a HP H8-1213 and wanted to install Ubuntu 12.04 but after selecting install ubuntu on the installation menu I get a blank screen with a flashing cursor. There's activity in the DVD drive but after a minute it stops and nothing happens. I want to do a full install, no dual-boot, so I already know the partition issue doesn't affect me. Please help because I'm really tired of Windows. (Hardware)
