sttigg June 27, 2012 at 13:57:15 Specs: ubuntu 12.4, pentium 4: 2.6Ghz cpu 1gig ram.
I would like to format (erase) a hard drive from the bios is this possible? I'm trying to install ubuntu 12.4 again but this time when I get to name and password I type a name, then when I type a password the first letter I type fills the box automatically and won't let me proceed. So I thought maybe doing a clean sweep of the HD may allow me to install. s:)
You don't need to erase anything to install Ubuntu. Boot to the live cd and see if the keyboard works correctly first. Then consider using safe mode boot to cd and see if you can install it. The password being filled is the problem. Some keyboard issue.
