View Full Version : [ubuntu] failed install no OS detected

January 15th, 2010, 04:54 PM
I recently installed Ubuntu (or tried to) and did so using the site's steps (using an USB). Everything seemed to be going well through the steps and all. But when it was finished there was a log in screen (when I had chosen not to have to log in) and when I clicked on it, it would change to a log-in and cancel button before going back to just the login button. So I decided to shut it down. Now when it boots from the HD it says no Operating System (I had chosen to delete windows XP entirely and allow Ubuntu to set up). Then when I try to boot from the USB it stalls and doesn't go any further. I am new to Ubuntu and was fed up with windows. Is there something I'm missing here?
