Here's my specs: Processor - AMD Phenom II x4 810 Motherboard - ASUS M4A78T-E Video Card - HIS Radeon HD 2600 XT IceQTurbo RAM - 4GB DDR2-1066 Sound - Motherboards Integrated I was wondering why it kept hanging no matter what kind of install I do, even the live distro fails to boot it just hangs like crazy. How can I fix this? Thanks all! ^_^

The only thing I can think

The only thing I can think of that might be wrong is the fact that I used a bad burning program or my CD drive that burnt it is going out. (I highly doubt it, but I could be wrong)

I have installed Ubuntu in

I have installed Ubuntu in the past, but I figured out that my error is what's called a kernel panic. The error screens look exactly like what I get is something like this: Of course, that's not my error, what can I do about it. Some more details that might be helpful: • I don't have a physical connection to the internet, I have a wireless card (Don't know if it need to install via Internet). • I can send a pic of the error if you like.

Is it possible to install Ubuntu Hardy 8.04 , standard desktop edition? If not, you might have some hardware configuration issues, possibly bios settings. If it does work, you might want to follow Tapani's Mint to 64 Studio instructions. Linux mint is essentially a brand engineered version of Ubuntu. LinuxMint-to-64Studio-HowTo. There is another beta release in the pipeline Cheers, Quentin

Hi, I have had a similar problem with my new system which is a quad-core AMD too. But, the problem seems to be with any Linux OS based on 8.04 including, sadly, 64Studio. I tried the Linux Mint 5 to 64Studio per above and the Linux 5 (based on 8.04) would not install so I could not upgrade. I have had no issues with a Linux OS based on Ubuntu 9.04 likeLinux Mint 7 or even UbuntuStudio 9.04. Also, Sidux installed very easily. As did AVLinux. I am hopeful, (very) that the install issues will be resolved for me on this OS. Good luck, James
