I received my parts today from Newegg and now have the hardware end set up. I am trying to install Ubuntu, and after choosing either 'install ubuntu' or 'try ubuntu without any changes to your computer', first the Ubuntu bar happens with the orange bar that goes back and forth. After that, the screen goes black. In a few seconds, a line like this appears at the top:
There is a flashing underscore on the line below that. About 15-20 seconds later, another line appears, same message with a higher number in the brackets. 15-20 seconds later, a third line appears under those two, with a larger number within the brackets. This continues indefinitely.Code:[184.486406] Buffer I/O error on device fd0, logical block 0
The message is kind of self-explanatory, but is not very helpful as far as what to do to fix the problem. The same thing happens for attempts at both 32-bit installation and 64-bit installation. It is not the Ubuntu cd, because I know that my 32-bit one works.
The computer has an Intel Q9450 processor, Asus P5Q motherboard, 2 Seagate HDs (640 and 250 gig), 2 disk drives, and so on. I have tried using both disk drives, and have set both hard drives as primary and retried. Same problem.
I can't make any sense of it since everything is detected in the BIOS.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated; I just want to get things working on my first desktop build.
