CPU: Intel Core-i7 960
Motherboard: GA-X58-UD5 (X58 Express Chipset)

What happend:

I installed Ubuntu Studio 11.04, daily build as of 2011-04-21.
And the installation process didn't proceed because of floppy disk drive

What I did:

I enabled floppy disk drive in Bios function but don't use the drive, do
not connect the drive.

I ran installer and the installer was not proceeded just after DHCP

Then I move to text console to push F4 key. The text concole report
"end_request: I/O error, dev fd0, sector 0". I guess this is an issue of
floppy disk drive.

I reboot my system and went to bios section and change the setting to
disable floppy disk drive. Then the installer proceeded.

What I expected:

I can install Ubuntu till maverick the same settings to enable floppy
disk drive and without connecting it to my system. The installer should
run as the same circumstanses.

I hope this trouble will be fixed now but I can't find the same bug at

# I'm happy with natty now, especially for plymouth theme.
# Great thanks for Scott Lavender!
