Kubuntu will not boot after installation
I recently picked up a hard drive from a yard sale and thought it would be a great way to dabble with Kubuntu without endangering my current OS.
I DL'ed the latest distro and burned a cd, then switched to the new drive (power-down, disconnect current drive, connect new drive, power up)and booted from the cd. I followed the install procedure as displayed on the screen, but upon restarting, my computer would not boot up from the hard drive. It would boot from the cd. This drive was not a boot drive prior to installing Linux, although it is a functioning drive. Do I need to install a windows operating system to make it a boot drive, and then install Linux? My experience with Linux distro's is minimal as I have only installed on hard drives which were formerly windows OS boot drives. I have run Suse Linux on this computer previously (from a different hard drive).
