Hello All!

Hello all,

I am looking forward to joining the #! community!

I have always run Windows on my home PC, only using Linux at work. I found #! and it came with all the tools I would need to hit the ground running with Linux on my desktop.

I am running:

Intel i7 3.2GHz
24 GB RAM
Geforce 560 Ti
2TB HDD

Although I am having issues with my initial install  I am still happy to be here smile

That there is. Be sure to tell on your issues if they persist.

Re: Hello All!

Awesome!

I am getting stuck at my initial boot screen.

I first see a bunch of "platform microcode: firmware: agent aborted loading intel-ucode/06-1a-05"

then it hangs on "waiting for/dev to be fully populated".

any ideas?

Re: Hello All!

I'm not familiar with that type of thing, but if you start a thread in one of the support sections, someone should come around to try and assist you.

Re: Hello All!

Welcome arty. Looks like the image is missing some crucial piece of firmware for your PC, or you might have a misburn. Try and burn the DVD again and check the md5 sum.
