Hi, I've recently purchased a laptop with spec as follow: Processor : Intel Pentium Dual-Core Processor T2390 (1.86 GHz, 1M cache, 533 MHZ FSB) Memory : 1 GB Graphics : SiS Mirage3+Graphics (Sis M672) up to 256 MB Display : 12.1" WXGA (1280X800) TFT LCD Storage : 1xHDD SATA Seagate 120 GB Brand : Axioo No Operating System Installed The ubuntu version I tried to install is the latest 8.10 for desktop version.During the installation, after selecting the option install Ubuntu, it continues to the screen with the progress bar. After that, it freezes in the reddish-brow colour screen. I have tried other alternatives such as Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer, Install Ubuntu in safe Graphics mode. But it won't work.Can anybody help me out to install this OS? I really appreciate your help. Thanks.
