Hi everyone! I am brand-spankin new to Ubuntu (sorry for the annoyance), and Ubuntu/Linux is something that I am keenly interested in becoming familiar with as I delve deeper into programming and the like.
So I went through the process of formatting a thumb drive and putting 12.04 on it, but whenever I try to boot from the USB with this laptop it gives me the error "Missing Operating System" and just boots straight into Windows. What should be my first order of business in attempting to troubleshoot this?
My specs are as follows:
Gateway (Laptop) Model MT6831
OS: Windows Vista Home Premium
Processor: Intel Core 2 CPU - T5300 @ 1.73 GHz (2 CPUs)
Memory: 2038MB RAM
Thanks for any help in advance!
