I tend to need this forum more than I can help. Am installing latest version of Ubuntu (8.04) and keep getting this "To run a command as administrator..." and it seems like some sort of GRUB error *whatever that is. I've installed Ubuntu on other systems and it's flown through no problems, but this one has me flummoxed.
Have tried both types of installs (x86 and the other one.)
Here's the details:
Averatec computer Model 3250
60 GB HD, 512 MB RAM, i686 (or x686, whatever)
Downloaded install cd and tried to install it, but keep getting the prompt to run a command as admin...
Tried supergrub but that's no use
can't get into bios to change it
can't login to use regular xp (long story, brother thought he could just up and mess with my computer...)
freaking out now....just about to lose my computer?
