This is on a new dell desktop 8500 XPS. Having problems getting Ubuntu to boot from hard drive. Need help with bios settings I think.

did it boot the ubuntu cd or usb and fail the install?
hard drives are normality in every boot order so I am trying to figure out if the install failed or of you have a true boot issue

right after pushing the power button the fist screen should appear hit the F12 it should bring up a one time boot menu that you can pick cd/dvd or usb or hard disk to boot from. If that fails you may have a unbootable cd/usb ubuntu device:)
