    Unhappy Asus 1215B with AMD-E350

    My Netbook, the Asus 1215B which has an AMD APU (CPU & Ati Radeon Hd 6300 GPU), doesn't work Backtrack 5 or 5 R1, neither using KDE nor Gnome. After loading up several drivers etc., it stops doing anything. I can type, but it doesn't effect it. Running debug-mode, it takes way longer, loads more stuff, shows the splash but then stops again. And i waited several hours for something to happen. Maybe there is a solution, i would really appreciate it.


    I tried two Live-USBs, which both worked on other systems:

    Number one:
    Backtrack 5, 32 bit, KDE - installed using UNetbootin


    Number two:
    Backtrack 5 R1, 32 bit, Gnome - installed using Universal USB Installer

    It gives almost the same results as number one: Instead of freezing up the boot and showing the weird screen, it only freezes. Its possible to see that Backtrack loaded up the drm drivers for the GPU and froze after that. And with that, i actually mean that you can still type (and enter), but there is no feedback or anything.

    So obviously i would appreciate help (thanks in advance for that), but yet i think it simply doesn't support my CPU / GPU or there is another compatiblity error.

    If you don't install anything on it does it work ? No drivers no anything.

    Default AW: Asus 1215B with AMD-E350

    Im not totally sure what you mean: I have another OS on that Netbook, yes (Windows 7). On Backtrack isn't installed anything, i just took the vanilla iso. There is no modification to the Live USB at all. I didn't make it work at any time on this Netbook.. (Maybe this matters: Other Linux distros (tested Ubuntu and Debian) worked perfectly.)

    Try customizing the iso and installing the ATI Drivers, it might solve your problem, also try booting with "acpi=off noapic" parameters.
