I dont get a desktop or anything. I just installed this and it boots up well it seems, then it goes into a black screen, the computer shows activity for a minute after it then nothing. Anyone know what this is? I get past the point where it shows the bar filling and it says "press esc for verbose mode", gets by that and then boom the black screen.

Press ctrl + alt + F2. You should get a  text login screen. If you do then your system has booted but there is something wrong with xwindows. Press ctrl + alt + F7 to get back to your blank screen and try pressing ctrl & alt  & + a couple of times. Any change?
