View Full Version : [ubuntu] Need Help after Ubuntu Install

September 21st, 2008, 11:12 PM
I have been lurking here and getting intrigued by ubuntu. I bought an old dell optiplex gx620 for my test of ubuntu. I have xp pro and vista computers. I wanted to set up ubuntu for my computer at home to surf the internet and handle email.

The dell had xp pro and I had another 80g sata drive that I installed to keep the ubuntu on a separate drive. During the install I saw both drives. The xp was on the 40g and I chose the 80g to install ubuntu. It finished installing and asked me to reboot. I got a prompt to remove the cd and when it rebooted it said this: grub loading stage 1.5, grub loading please wait..., and finally error 21.

After that i get errors that only one sata can be seen and it has no os. I cannot boot the live cd. Checked the bios and cd rom show not present. I had earlier moved it to the top of the boot order and it remains with not present.

I'm not concerned about the xp as I bought this machine to run ubuntu.

Tell me what to do.

Got it figured out. Both os work fine.
