Acer Aspire 5742G white screen on first boot


Here are the specs

Laptop: Acer Aspire 5742G

Intel i3 M370 2.4 GHZ

Nvidia GeForce GT540M 1GB

6GB DDR3 Memory

intel hd m370 integrated (unsure about the intel gfx, might be HD3000)

Anyway. I have installed iatkos ml2 on the second partition of my laptop probably near 6 times now, all with different customizations, and none have worked. Yes the install has succeeded, but the first boot never does.

The first few times I would get some error with the nvidia rom patcher (or something of that nature) then get a kernel panic/white screen after a few minutes of that first boot.

Then I turned off the graphics enabler and that never happened again, but now I just keep getting a white screen on that first boot, no matter what customizations I try.

That white screen for which I am talking about is the light black square that tells you to restart the computer in a few different languages.

The kernel panic I'm talking about is the same black square but with a bunch of coding and such in the background.

If those aren't what I say they are then sorry.

This is what I keep getting, when the screen just freezes (no white screen, but frozen for a while) but in verbose


Also, my partition table is Master Boot Record. Could this be it?
