View Full Version : [SOLVED] No bootable device when booting from cd.

January 29th, 2011, 10:16 PM
I have dell laptop running with windows xp and im trying to install ubuntu 10.10 by booting it from a cd.
I verified the image I downloaded by comparing the hash and it worked out fine. I wrote the image into a cd and changed the booting priority on the BIOS to boot from the drive.
When attempting to boot I get the "No bootable device found strike F1 to retry, F2 for setup or F5 to run onboard diagnostics" message.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Try F9 or F12 at boot to bring up a one time device selection window. Select CD/DVD drive. If it still fails to boot then you may have a bad burn.
