I'm trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit on an x120e (AMD E-240).

I PXE boot it, then go through the standard install, everything works well 
until, while it's copying files to the disk, it crashes hard. It displays a 
bunch of message on console, like a debug trace, but it's different from one 
time to the next. Also, it does not crash always at the same point in time, it 
seems more or less random.

I have PXE booted it, and played with it, browsing the net etc... for a good 
1/2 hour and it did not crash. It only seems to crashing during the Ubuntu 

Anybody successfully install a version of Linux on an x120e?
Any idea what I should look at.
