View Full Version : [ubuntu] newbie need help with ubuntu 9.04

July 21st, 2009, 09:33 AM
Hi all, I have an old laptop (compaq presario 700z -- AMD duron 1Ghz) I downloaded Ubuntu 9.04 and followed the direction to do clean install. after I am done, I shut turned off the laptop. when I go to turn it on again it said " Operation system not detected". I thought I did something wrong, so I re-install again 3 times already...and still each time it restarted or reboot, it would say " Operation system not detected". does anyone know whats going on? this is my first time installing linux on any computer...so any information and direction is much appreciated. thanks

I downloaded Ubuntu 9.04

1) How did you download ubuntu?

2) If not using a torrent, did you md5sum the download?
