The installation goes through fully, all the way until it says I have to reset the computer then I get a black screen that says it is requesting that everything shuts down and the loading dots show through in the middle of the screen. I hit enter and the computer resets and says "Disk boot failure insert system disc and hit enter"
I have done this 3 times now and since being bull-headed didn't work as well as id' hoped, i'm asking for any help anyone can give.
I am trying to install Ubuntu 14.04LTS 32 bit on an old compaq SR5223WM with some upgrades, and I made sure i did download the 32 bit version. I burned the ISO onto a DVD-R the way it says to on the "Help" section of the ubuntu site, using the windows disc image burner on a Windows 7 computer
it has an ASUS motherboard and the chipset is NVIDIA GeForce 6150 nForce 430
2 Gb Ram ( it had 2X 512s and I added 2X 1GB sticks)
a Sempron 3600+ processor, 2Ghz
3 TB 7200 RPM HDD (I am going to get a 400W PSU from the 250W and take the optical drive cords and then use them for hooking up the second 3 TB HDD)
Networking card (works fine, and I can connect to download updates)
Radeon HD 6450 graphics card w/ 2 GB DDR3 RAM (I am running the monitor through it just fine and it works fine)
2 GB RAM (works fine)
The computer worked fine (considering the fact that it was running Vista) for about 2 months after I added the RAM and wireless card, the HDD and the video card are new.
If anyone has a different distrib. i should try, or wants to point out something blatantly obvious i'm doing wrong, throw it out there.
