So I've got Windows 7 64-bit already installed on my computer. I set aside a 100Gb partition when I installed W7 so that I could later put Ubuntu on for a dual boot. Up until now I've been running Ubuntu 64-bit in VMWare with no issues, I just want the power I can get from having an actual installation. So, I burn the image to a DVD, throw it in the drive, restart the computer. I get to the first screen just fine, the screen with the options to install, boot from Live CD, check the disc for errors, etc. From there, of the three options I've chosen (install, run Live CD, Check disc for errors) All take me to a black screen where a traceback (I guess?) is shown. I see several things go by, like "NMI handler took too long to run!" and "fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed!" I can get more details if someone can tell me what to look for, because its mostly gibberish to me, and I can't exactly copy/paste. Before I try to install, I unplug all my peripherals (speakers, wireless adapter, external hard drive) but it doesn't make a difference. If anyone can tell me what to pick out of that traceback to post here for more info, I'll gladly do it again.
Oh, just thought about the fact that I'm plugged into my gpu and not the onboard graphics, lemme try that.
Annnnnnd nevermind, working now. Sorry
