  Have to use nomodeset in live cd

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Whenever I try to boot from a flash drive,or live cd,in 14.04,I have to use the nomodeset option. This is my graphics card: NVIDIA Corporation G72 [GeForce 7300 LE]. At the moment i am using 12.04. I do not have this problem with a 12.04 or 13.10 live cd.
  If I install nvidia proprietary driver 304 when running from a flash drive,the problem goes away. 
  Thanks for all your help,
   Sydney Dykstra
