I'm also having the blinking cursor after installation of server 10.04
Hello All Experts here!!
I have an intermediate level with linux especially ubuntu.I got 3 brand new machines from work a hp g32 i5 that i'm using currently as developer machine with ubuntu 10.10 (dual booting though), and 2 servers xeon processor,4gb ram.
I've installed ubuntu server 10.04 on the first and it's installed perfectly, and with the same dvd installed on the second machine and having the blinking cursor issue.
I've reinstalled the ubuntu 2 times and still the same problem.I've read on the net to hold the shift key and edit the grub menu as stated in some thread of this forum: and it output a lot of stuffs and the last lines were :
i did notice in the bios at startup that there was at searching for device there is a virtualdisk of the capacity 499. something and an LSILogic SAS1068E with capacity 2D:09

i hope i've giving much details that could help you help me. this has been dragging over two days now, i'm wondering if i should take the server back(hardware fault) or tried couple of fix available on the net or pick the 10.10 dvd?
