I recently built a new computer and I wanted to install ubuntu on it. I have a fairly slow connection because of where I live, so I wanted to use a disk I already have rather than ubuntu 8.10. The disk is hardy heron beta.
I have used the disk before, but that was starting the installation from windows. I dont have anything on the hard drive, so I cant initiate it in that way. When I insert the disk and reboot, the bios stops at "booting from cd/dvd". However I know it is alright because it loads an old xp disk normally.
Is there some way I can install ubuntu from the bios?
If you want my specs:
Kingston DDR2-800 2gb
Western Digital 500gb SATA
Pioneer DVR-216BK SATA
