View Full Version : [ubuntu] no start up

May 19th, 2008, 02:26 PM
I install ubuntu 8.04 on my gateway e4100 and after the install was finish. I took the cd out and restart for the first time and nothing will not boot, will go to bios setup. When i unplug the Hard Disk it will go to bios setup and cd and floppy..
I tried to put it in a working computer as an extra but nothing too.

What can i do?

Have you tried booting from CD again? If so it might just be a grub error and should be solved by a re-install. If not it could possibly be hardware failure?

Did everything work as it should from the live cd?
