Install ubuntu on thinkpad x30 - IBM ThinkPad X30 2672 Notebook

Answers :

If you download Jaunty (it will probably work with 8.10 too though). When you're installing, press the key for alternative options (F4 I think), choose safe mode graphics and load the installer). You should then be able to install as usual.

There is an issue running it on the X30, so you may need to revert to the Xorg intel driver to 2.4, you can follow a guide here:

I also have an x30 and recently tried to put Ubuntu on it. I tried versions 7.04, 7.10, 8.04, 8.10, and 9.04. All of them suffered from some sort of video error that made it unpleasant to use. I eventually wound up finding a USB CD-ROM and installing XP on it. It has worked flawlessly since.

You could try a 6.x distro, or try another distro of linux al together ala mandriva, or PClinuxOS
