I installed the cd version by erasing that hard drive and ridding myself of Windows for the first time. As I am a believer in getting it all, I installed all available updates setup user all available options. When I reboot, I input user and password and end up with an orange screen that just last forever. I tried every key and nothing happens. I have to hold down the power button to shut the computer down. I tried all of the options with the same result. I then burned the X86-64 DVD and tried to install, Fatal error I have a HP Pavillion 1483w Athlon 64X2 4100+ 2.2 GHZ Processor Nvidia GeForce 6150 LE Asus MotherBoard 2 Gig mem 60 gig Western Digital HD and 250 gig maxtor alot more if you need it. I have never taken the Linux plunge but have wanted to for years. After reading up I chose this version since it appears the most new user friendly and stable. Please help me get this working, I don't want to go back to Windows.
