boots with CD only


Hello,

I`am facing tricky situation here.
I already installed Ubuntu 11.04 from CD, but when I restart pc it should load the Ubuntu OS, but it does`n boot without a CD and when you boot CD the installation process repeats. I though maybe installed was wrong so I tried reinstall, but in the setup I can choose to replace the existing Ubuntu or make a dual boot with it. Hope you can help...

Sincerely
Lukie

After you finished the install, it told you to remove the cd from the tray.

After removing the cd and rebooting what is the exact error that you get?

After removing the cd and rebooting it just goes to the black blinking screen when it should boot automatically to the OS;/

I had win7 and older ubuntu version, but they both bugged too much and I decided to format them both and install 11.04 only. So, now previous OS disappeared and I have new Ubuntu which is installed, but the BIOS can`t boot it.

Ok I just reinstalled Ubuntu and know it goes perfect. Thread is solved, but I don`t know what was wrong before, maybe during the installation process something went. Nevertheless thanks Andrew for help;]

Sincerely
