Question about Computers & Internet
I bought an Ubuntu magazine, I was thinking of switching. After doing enough research I decided to install it (using the disk that came with the magazine). I tried it on an older computer first to make sure I could do it right and that the disk worked. It installed fine, had little problems with it.
When I popped the disk into my computer it won't load. To test my drive I put Civilization 3 in and it loaded just fine. I really want to install Ubuntu on my computer but for some reason it won't load the disk, I'm not really sure whats going on but any help I would really appreciate.
Make sure you are booting from CD-ROM and not the hard drive, If that doesn't help get out your windows CD...run it until right after it formats your hard drive then stop your computer and boot with the Ubuntu disc...
You will love Ubuntu...it clean not bloated, straight forward, plenty of free help and software, everything you want is available -free and works better.
...good luck (there is a learning curve, but not bad) please leave rating
