I was running LM13 no problem and decided to upgrade to LM14.
Initially i was having trouble booting into the LM14 USB stick i had, but after browsing around, and adding 'apci=off' in the compatibility mode options, i got in. I installed LM14 using the same partition scheme i had before, formatting my root partition, but leaving the /home partition intact (i did however, move all the files to a backup folder on the partition). Everything seemed to go smoothly, but after trying to boot into LM14 from grub, it just hangs at the splash screen, even in recovery mode. NOW, i cant seem to get back into the liveUSB environment to try again.
When trying to boot into the USB stick it hangs after 'Starting SMB/CIFS Filer Server [ok]' (it does this twice, gets past the first time and freezes after the second)
In booting to the installed OS, in recovery mode after continuing to normal mode, it hangs at 'Stopping user boot splash..... [ok]' (cant recall exactly0
I no nearly nothing about linux, and have exhausted my normal search capabilities, so i turn to the community for assistance.
Please let me know if you have any advice or references.
My computer is an Acer TravelMate . LM13 ran perfect.
It has a B43xxx adapter.
I was dual booting win7 with lm13.
now i am trying to run win8 and install lm14. (win8 installed on the first partition and running fine)
