This is my first experience with Ubuntu. First of all, let me say that i am installing Ubuntu on a machine whose hard drive crashed and I have replace the C drive with a new drive and I think my problem might because of the pin settings on the back of the hard drive and the fact that my system might not recognize it as the C drive.
What happens is this. After I have installed Ubuntu, the Ubuntu system says that the installation is complete and that I need to restart the computer in order to use the new installation. After I click the button to "Restart Now" the CD drive spits out the installation CD and the computer hangs.
After waiting several hours just to be sure, I manually power down and power up the computer.
A dos-like display goes by the screen (as it always had) showing what hardware I have on the system . Here is where I see the first thing that is wrong. It says:
Pri.Master Disk: 0 MB Mode 0
If I bring up the BIOS settigs it says that the Primary Master is [AUTO]
if I let the power up of my computer continue it says that there is a disk boot faulure.
What do you suggest I do?
