Just tried installing Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Server (Dapper Drake) on Virtual PC 2004, and the installation screen was messed up. It shown only a portion of the installation screen.
Here’s how to fix it:
1. When booting up from the CD, you’ll see a menu. Press ESC there, where it’ll tell you that you’re about to switch to text-mode. Choose OK
2. You’ll see a prompt like this : boot:
3. To continue, just type this: install debian-installer/framebuffer=false
4. Press Enter, and the screen should show up OK on VirtualPC 2004.
So far so good. Hope it helps.
note: Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Server doesn’t install a GUI desktop (gnome/kde). If you need it, just type : sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
(need internet access and properly set-up /etc/apt/sources.list file)
