I received a popup window to upgrade to 14.04 from 13.04. Started upgrade. Upon reboot, the purble screen with the Ubuntu 14.04 title and progress dots appears, then a moment later disappears and the screen goes blank.
Downloaded 14.04 and burned to DVD hoping I could boot from there and repair installation but cannot boot from DVD. Bios settings are set for DVD to boot before HD.
I am not a Linux geek, just using it because a HD with windows went bad and did not want to pay for a new OS for this box.
Any help would be appreciated.
