I have two issues.
1) This is a new MB and I cannot boot up with a live disk to install. Everything seems to load fine and then the screen goes black and my monitor goes to sleep. I had this with the old MB and I was able to use the onboard video to get it installed, install the Nvidia driver and then use my video card.
Unfortunately this board doesnt have onboard video. Without using a different card to install with does anyone have any ideas how to get installed?
2) Every time I install for the last few releases, grub wont boot my system. I boot up and before I get to the grub screen I get a flashing cursor and thats it. I end up having to use a dirrent distro, install on a seperate disk, use that distro to boot VSIDO and from there purge grub and reinstall it (sometimes more than once) and finally I can boot up.
To make things even weirder, I can boot up just fine when booting in uefi mode and this video card. Just not in bios mode
