Linux installs freeze every time.
Since upgrading to a Palit GTX 560 Ti 2GB graphics card I have been unable to install any flavour of Linux based on the version 3 kernel. The moment it tries to change into graphics mode it either sits there indefinitely or locks up the PC. It has even gone as far as corrupting the CMOS so I had to clear it to get the PC to boot on 2 occasions.
The PC works fine as far as I can tell. It has Windows 7 64 and Windows 8 64 beta installed and running. I managed to get Ubuntu 12.04 64 installed by using the alternate text mode image, then from the command prompt installing the cuurent Nvidia graphics driver. Once installed it works fine also.
I would really like to try Linux Mint but can not get it to boot at all.
Anyone had similar issues here?
