View Full Version : [ubuntu] new to the game

May 5th, 2008, 08:34 PM
Hi all. Just installed Ubuntu! No, really, I mean the login screen just appeared for the first time.

I did have some problems though, last night I tried to install from the live CD with no success. All I had was a blinking cursor after the main bootup screen(BIOS screen). I have three HDDs in my machine, so I think the trick was to use the first SATA hard drive(found out which one was in the 0 position, and installed on that one).

Has anyone had any similar problems? Running fine now, but would like to help others avoid this same frustration.

Ta for now
