    Can't install Linux Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on new computer from an installation DVD.

    Can't install Linux Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on new computer from an installation DVD.

    I have build a computer (below) everything works fine. BIOS by default. I'm trying to run installation of Linux Ubuntu 12.04 LTS but nothing happens and computer says it can not start Windows. DVD is OK, because from it already installed Linux Ubuntu 12.04 LTS few times.
    Software from the motherboard DVD were not installed.

    If your BIOS is configured to start from hdd, you need to tell it to start from DVD instead by either changing the boot order in BIOS or pressing a special key (vendor specific) to get to a temporary boot menu.

    computer says it can not start Windows
    Has this anything to do with Ubuntu installation? Was it able to start from Windows before?
