    hmm i'm trying to install ubuntu 9.04 64bit on my computer for folding purposes (and to try out linux). I'm getting a kernel panic from both rescue and normal install using the mini cd. I'm suspecting its my motherboard but i can't find a bios update on msi website. currently its updated to the platinum version's latest version. any help would be greatly appreciated

    Do you already have an OS installed?

    Do you have three seperate partitions, or HDD's?
    Also, the way I did it, is I used Ubuntu 8.x and then upgraded once the OS was loaded.
    Trouble free process.

    Maybe create a new partition and format it again in Windows. Does it just shut down during install?

    The first thing that happens when you install is formatting of the HDD. Go to system->administration->partition editor. Try formatting it. Also at the boot menu of Ubuntu you should get an option of check CD for defects. Try that.
