Installation problem blank screen

My problem:
I'm getting a blank screen after selecting installing Ubuntu-mate
using ubuntu-mate-18.04.3-desktop-i386.iso "burned" on a USB drive.

I replaced my old HDD with a new SSD
Do I ned to create partitions on this new SSD disk?

I think the main challenge is my graphic card ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 External 256MB VRAM /with 512MB

Hopefully there is some one that can help me out!

Looking forward hearing from you.

Asus laptop model F3Ja
Intel Core Duo Processor T2400 1.83GHz, 2MB L2 Cache, 667MHz
Mobile Intel 945PM Express Chipset
2 GB DDR2 667MHz Ram
15.4″ WXGA
ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 External 256MB VRAM /with 512MB Hypermemory
8X DVD Super Multi Burner

6 Cells 4800mAH Battery
Bluetooth V2.0+EDR

Ports: 1 x Headphone-out jack, 1 x Microphone-in jack, 1 x Line-in Jack, 1 x RJ11 Modem jack for phone line, 1 x RJ45 LAN Jack for LAN insert, 4 x USB 2.0 ports, 1x IEEE 1394 port, 1 x TV Out (S-Video), 1 x Express Card, 1 x DVI Port, 1 x VGA Port

I tested the 32bit iso on a Thinkpad T60 that has an ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 and had no issues with the graphics driver. But obviously you are running a different GPU.

There should be no issues using an SSD.

As a possible work around do you have a copy of Ubuntu MATE 18.04.2 that you could try and install from? If not there are some still floating around the internet.

If we could get it installed from 18.04.2 that would give us a reference point.

Hi Frank,

Thank you for your quick response!

I will look for Ubuntu MATE 18.04.2 and work with this version.

But I just found out that in the BIOS settings the new SSD thus Not Supported Block Mode, this seems to be a problem with SSD from SanDisk Plus 240GB.

Monday I'll go back to the shop where I purchased the SSD.

I' ll keep you posted on the installation of Ubuntu-Mate

Enjoy your weekend!

Sorry the drive doesn't appear compatible. Hopefully you'll be able to have them sort it out.

Let us know how things work out.
