I'm trying to run Ubuntu 10.04 from the coverdisc on an Asus eeePC, with a 1.6Ghz Atom processor, a Mobile Intel 945 display chipset, and an external DVD drive.
I get to the boot menu, and am able to run Kubuntu and Xubuntu from the disc OK. But when I try Ubuntu, I never get off the boot menu. The external DVD drive reads the disc for about 20-30 seconds, then stops, and nothing else happens. The netbook doesn't hang, but it won't take me to the Ubuntu desktop.
Has anyone else had a similar problem? Could it have something to do with the video driver problems others have had? Is there a workaround that a newbie like me could implement?
