I've been trying to install ubuntu on my new laptop but I've forgot what
I did the last time to get it to work, now when I boot I get the
"acpi#0 not found (buggy bios)" and "ata1 soft reset failed (device not
ready)" and "ata2 soft reset failed (device not ready)".
The install then goes onto trying to boot into the graphical mode and
fails, the installation is not proceeding from that point onward and I'm
left at a command prompt.
I've tried the acpi=off, noapic and nolapic options to no avail.
I have been able to install arch linux successfully on the laptop by
giving the boot parameter rootdelay=8. I've tried 8.10 alternative dvd
64-bit and jaunty alpha-5 64-bit. The problem with the 8.10 install is
also that the radeonhd driver is the older 1.2.1 version which is not
sufficient for the ATI RadeonHD 3470 x2.
I would like to install Ubuntu on the laptop but I'm willing to leave
Arch on it.
