Kubuntu installation problem
bios info -
first boot device- CDROM
second boot device- Hard Disk
third boot device- CDROM <- changing this to "none" does nothing.
Hard disk boot priority
1. SATA5 : SAMSUNG HD501LJ
2. Bootable Add-in Cards
It seems to reboot whenever the installation process does somthing "by itself" for example if I do not select a language within 25 seconds it tries to auto select english, but when it does it freezes, then reboots
I have tried apci=off and the simple graphics mode, neither have worked.
While typing this I clicked on try without altering files by accident, for some reason (unknown to me) it loaded it up. The trial looks very good but im really after a full install.
I have just tried the trial again, but it rebooted this time
any help would be much appreciated
just tried a Windows XP boot cd out of curiosity- I got to the bit where it says --Boot from CD press any key to continue--
on the next screen it came up with install or repir -> I clicked install. The some thing happened as with kubuntu - the drive span down and my computer resarted!
