there's an option under 'advanced' called 'quick regen router'.
try that

From what I have understood, the intel chipsets can only do UI1, which is always a safe bet.

Allthough I think the "generate screen failed" isn't directly related, so you might want to delete the diskless media director and try again.

The normal error message for a failed UI2 setup would be something like 'MD failed to set up transparency' or something along those lines.
Trying UI1 can't hurt either

first time : Install live Cd kubuntu 7.04 and then launch the mce installer from the CD1 of LMCE 0704.
second time just relaunch the MCe installer again.

It is working now thanks. I rebooted the core which was in a unstable state. I have some problem with this core. I think it must be the Nvidia card :-(
