Have you run it from the Live CD first? If that loads and runs OK, it probably isn't a BIOS issue.

Use a live cd of parted magic or gparted to format the drive first and then install ubuntu.

When I put the side cover back on my machine I knocked off the power wires for the hardrive.I have built about 10 computers and never had anything like that happen.It is up and running,that is what I am using right now,so far I like it.Thank everyone for their help.
Later:)
