I did that in the BIOS. Still get an X failure.
Then you could blacklist the driver and use ndiwrapper with windows drivers.
I have tried the blacklist command, but "/modprobe/" or whatever (can't remember the exact dir/filename) does not exist, nor can I use gedit.
I must remind you that this amount of problems is not normal, and they mostly happen when you install.....
If wubi counts then I do have Ubuntu "installed", but have not once been able to boot.
Now I hope that an install in "Safe graphics mode" does it
To be really safe - press F3 at boot and select a really low resolution - the widescreen resolutions of some new laptops makes X go bananas
At what screen do I press F3? The screen with the Ubuntu or Mint splash and the sweeping bar across below?
I really hope this works out but I need painfully simple instruction, I'm afraid.
