Hi All, I hope I am posting this in the correct part of the forum, I am fairly new to this!
I recently bought an old IBM Pentium 4 that work were disposing of (£20 which went to charity as well, how nice!) As you may expect it was given to me in a completely formatted state but was previously runing Windows XP. I decided a nice clean install of Ubuntu 12.04 would be best but when I choose DVD (or USB) from the BIOS to boot from I see an error immediately stating "No Operating System found".
This has me a little stumped, I have installed the OS 3x times on 3x separate machines from the disc and USB stick so I know they are fine. But as there is no OS on the machine I cannot get into it to see where the problems are. I am fairly competent with computers but not at a level where I can fix this without a little direction. Does anyone have any ideas?
In case it is of any use the spec is:
Pentium 4 3ghz single core
186 pin ram 4gb
