[ubuntu] Ubuntu 12.04 & 12.10 on Dell Inspiron 530

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have attempted with 12.04 and the upcoming 12.10 to boot Ubuntu from both a USB and CD on a Dell Inspiron 530, to no luck... When I use either a USB or CD, the purple screen and Ubuntu logo appears with the orange & white dots moving across the screen, but then nothing else materialises. When the CD is being used, the CD stops spinning (as you can hear it) and no progress is made. I've tried all sorts of settings within the BIOS, to no luck also. Is this a known problem with the Inspiron 530 or other Dell PC's? If anyone knows a permanent fix, it would be greatly appreciated! :( (Hardware)
