I am trying to install Ubuntu 14.04 onto my desktop.

My desktop contains an AMD FirePro™ 2270

I have Scientific Linux 6.5 working on this machine no problems

My usb install sticks works
When I boot to it and test Ubuntu 14.04 it works ok

However after the install (on which no errors are reported)

I select Ubuntu 14.04
It says
Loading initial RAM disk

then the machine goes blank

I did find this


Out of which you get this


I have downloaded this software but I can never get to a terminal window 
to actually install it

Any advice help about how to resolve this, would be sincerely appreciated

Thanking you.

Yours sincerely
