Hi all, recently got a dell xps 8300 and have been attempting to install or even run ubuntu from a cd or usb. Problem is, when it's booting up I come to a part where it says:
(bunch of numbers) Attached scsi Removable disk

and won't go any further from there. Same happens from usb and cd, and if I try to run the installer from inside windows. I've redownloaded the image just in case it was corrupt, but no luck. Help!
