Hello, I tried to install almost every version of linux on my PC with Asus motherboard and AMD A6 processor. It won't install at all. I tried with alternate CD. But after installation Linux does not boot.

Is this showing any error...... ???


I think this is not a your Motherboard or Processor Problem it may be the Hard Disk or Hard Disk Partition Problem.....

Never had an issue either- those issues usually were a bad harddisk, bad CD or the delightful CD r/w permissions error that afflicted some makes of optical drives.

What's the error message? What is it doing or not doing?

Ubuntu, Xubuntu, Mythbuntu, Lubuntu, Kubuntu almost 4 versions of each.
I used usb drive, CD, DVD, alternate CD. My Hard disk is WD 80GB 7 yrs old, but works fine.

I have an 80GB WD hard disk and it is 7 yrs old. I switch it from primary drive to secondary then again to primary but to no effect.

If you would like assistance you need to give us more information. how far into the installation process do you get? do you receive any error messages? does the computer even see the installation media and begin the installation process?

Completely confusing. You state that Linux won't install and then finish with "after installation" Linux does not boot. Like everyone else has stated, we need more information because what you have provided thus far is completely vague.

With alternate CD, I can complete the installation. But when I restart the PC, screen goes blank.

okay now we're getting somewhere. once you've booted and have a blank screen, press Control-Alt-F2 to switch to a terminal. login with the credentials you created, then please give us the output of:

  1. sudo lshw -C display

Is your motherboard UEFI based?
If yes, you need to boot in UEFI mode, and then install, otherwise it won't boot.

I tried with alternate CD, alongside windows. At the time of boot options, screen doesn't show option for ubuntu. Also, the partition on which the ubuntu is installed is invisible in windows.

I run Ubuntu on m5a97 board with Phenom II x4, and it runs fine. Just make sure your installation media is UEFI formatted, and allot the first 100 mb of your HDD/SSD for the UEFI partition.

You might need to enable/disable the 'nomodeset' option too.. for NVIDIA cards

I built my system a month or two back, and it booted up without any glitches though.
