Good afternoon, I hope your day is going well. I usually will reply-all, 
if that is what you mean. This is because other people on the list can 
see my emails and if I say something wrong or incorrect, they can reply 
and correct it. I also do it just so everybody is in the loop on what is 
going on.

If Oneiric (and newer) crash after trying to boot, and hardy (and older) 
boot fine, then it must be an internal error, or an error that is in the 
system when Oneiric/newer boots. It may very well be the VGA problem as 
you suggest. I have never experienced this, so I am able to give you 
information to the best of my abilities without being able to see what 
you are seeing, so if I don't solve the problem or figure out an answer, 
I am sorry. Does Persistent boot? Persistent is the newest stable 
version of Kubuntu. Thanks!
