    Kubuntu Not Booting


    I downloaded the x64 version of Kubuntu for my computer and booted it to the live CD then selected install. It went through the whole process of installing it then asked if i wanted to reboot and use the install or stay in the live CD, I choose to reboot and instead of booting it gives me a no OS error.

    Ideas:
    -Bootloader problem, but i don't know how to fix it
    -it is installed on a SATA drive so i dont know if that is causing problems
    -I still have 2 other IDE drives installed, would these be causing problems?

    I did not manually install a boot loader, i assumed that the setup installed it. How would i install the bootloader seperate from the OS?

    The machine previously had windows which i removed, as far as i can tell no boot loader was installed anywhere since the setup just sort of ran and did its own thing after i selected the partitions.
