If it is not recognizing the drive you can go to BIOS settings and change the behavior of hard drive from sata to ide. But this is required if you are using and old distribution. All the recent distributions should work out of the box.
Installing Ubuntu is short 7 step method. I would say easier than windows.
Hardware specs are fine, you need to give more information on where you failed. What distribution and at what point.
