    Ubuntu 64bit installation problem


    Hi there.
    I am trying to install Ubuntu 11.10 64bit on my new laptop HP DV6 with no luck whatsoever.

    Very soon after the computer starts from the USB it throws a black screen on me with the following error:

    Loading /capser/vmlinuz.....
    Loading /casper/initrd.lz....
    Ready.
    Kernel panic - not syncing: No mapping iommu for ioapic 0
    Pid: 1 comm: swapper not tained

    I am able to launch the compatibility mode but am not sure how to install the system from there.

    Please help.
