Hi, I posted about this last year and we have just been using bodhi with a stretched screen lol! Anyway I needed to reinstall Bodhi 2 after trying edubuntu on son't fizzbook spin. Long story short is - it won't install from my usb dvd drive - hangs and crashes - but it installs fine from pendrive - except installs with a stretched screen and no other options than 800 x 600. Now it isn't just Bodhi, it is any Linux distro installed via usb. Some will install via the dvd drive and the screen resolution is fine (but it takes so many attempts to get them installed!) Bodhi won't though, and that's what I want to put back on now. What I don't understand is, if installation from a disc, burned with the identical iso to the pendrive, installs with the correct screen resolution, why does installation with usb not give the correct screen resolution (and no other options - I think it needs to be 1200 by 600 or something, I forget). Assume it is a missing ACPI driver perhaps (but then wouldn't that be the same if installing from a disc?). Or something in the bios talking to pendrives differently to the dvd drive.
Anyway, this isn't specifically a Bodhi issue, it's more of a hardware issue, but if anyone has any ideas I'd be grateful. At the moment the only options are:
1) Install Bodhi over and over again via dvd drive and watch it crash over and over again (it did install once but then wouldn't accept my password).
2) Install Bodhi from pendrive/usb stick and have a stretched screen.
3) Install one of the 14.04 based buntus (or Bodhi 3) and not have Supertuxkart or Supertux working properly (for some reason these don't seem to work properlt in the 14.04 distros) - which is the main reason our son wants Linux on his netbook lol!
