I recently bought an A300-STX to use as a media server. I am trying to install Ubuntu Server 18.04 but as it starts to boot from disc it will fail and the screen will go black. I updated to the latest BIOS - 3.40, but that didn't help either. I also tried to boot from a USB drive but it failed as well.

I would give a quick windows install a shot to rule out Kernel issues. If that gets you into an OS then you need to check with the distro forums and see if anyone has a fix/update for you.

If you can't get windows to boot then we need to look at other factors. Given it is a bare bones system your main culprits would be RAM (possibly not fully compatible or defective), CPU or storage. Could you provide full system specs so we know what you are working with?

Good luck

Try ubuntu 19.04

As far a I know, you have to use Kernel 5.0 and above.
