Feedback on the Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E525

Asked by Stefan Zeidler on 2012-04-08

Hello, I just bought a brand new ThinkPad Edge E525. I created an image DVD (which I checked and worked on my other windows laptop), set BIOS to start from DVD but then ubuntu 11.10 32 bit installation image will not install. A first linux message comes up once the DVD is booted, then some installation goes on but the screen stays black and nothing more happens. What a pitty, will have to switch back to windows ...

This is a known bug that is supposedly fixed. Can you try with the latest daily build of 12.04 LTS and see if the fix for that bug is in Precise and works for you?

Can you help with this problem?
