I’m trying to install Linux on a Dell Netbook for ages. Since I’m a Fedora User and Ambassador I’ve tried Fedora first. While the live image works fine, after installation I can’t boot: the screen starts flashing and it just stays like that without ever completing the booting sequence.
I’ve uploaded a video here so you can understand better what’s happening.
The Netbook is a Dell Inspiron 1090 and it used to work fine with Windows.
Tried every spin available with no success, a lot of distros also with no success. Can anyone please help?
@florian as far as I can understand, the boot process never completes.
@galvao, the screen is not simply flashing. There is something written. It is the boot process, isn’t it? The textual boot is alternated with the graphical (plymouth as said by @florian) one giving the sense of flashing.
Some service is in loop or the like. Are you able to see what’s written on screen?
You could also edit the grub entry to disable the graphical boot: keep SHIFT pressed during boot early stages, when the grub menu appears hit e, then remove rhgb and quiet from the linux line, finally press CTRL+x
