No desktop after installing Umbunto 7.10
I'm updating my Inspiron 3800, and have added a significantly larger HDD. after checking that my BIOS were up to date,one of my first tasks was to install Umbunto (sp?) 7.10. Following the directions provided on the disk, I installed the operating system. However, when I removed the disk and booted from the HDD, I got some sounds but just a clear screen, although in a pleasant earth tone.
Can anyone suggest what went wrong?
