So, I pop in the Ubuntu 64-bit install CD (I've tried both the "desktop" (Dapper Drake) and "alternate" (Text-based) installs) and hit "Install in text mode" or whatever it was. I get a bunch of gibberish, then at the bottom it says Kernel Panic - not syncing - Attempted to kill init! and it stays there forever. I've left it on for hours and it still stays there.
SO i decided to see if it was just the distro and tried installing MEPIS. I'm assuming the same thing happened because the progress bar got stuck under the "F" in F2 at that one screen where it says "Press F2 for info", and that seemed like a progress bar that should go pretty fast.
I've already posted this on the Ubuntu forums and nobody seems to know anything.
Anybody got any ideas at all? This is really getting on my last nerve here.
Ps. Yes, I did check the md5 sum of the .iso's and no, it wasn't a bad burn, because I tried each version (dapper drake and text-based) twice and burned at 2x just to make sure.
