Hi, I recently signed up and this is my first post so here goes.
I am still new to Ubuntu and definitely not command line literate. I am trying to upgrade from Ubuntu 12.04 to Lubuntu 13.04 in an effort to speed up an old laptop and I am hitting a snag. I want to go right ahead and install the OS on the HDD and boot straight to it (i.e. without a CD or USB) and I've used Unetbootin to install the ISO to the HDD and rebooted.
On the GRUB menu, I have the option to select 'Unetbootin', 'Try Lubuntu without installing' and 'Install Lubuntu' (as well as the previous OS options). However, when I select one of the Unetbootin or Lubuntu options I get the following:
error: hd15 cannot get C/H/S values
error: you need to load the kernel first
I've seen lots of techie articles and posts about similar error messages but don't understand the responses. Some talk about partitions and adjusting BIOS settings which I fear may be beyond me. Can anyone explain in simple terms what I need to do to get past this and boot straight into Lubuntu?
Many thanks in advance.
