|I recently built a computer. Specs are as follows:|
Asus M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3 motherboard
Amd Phenom II 965 BE
4gb ocz ddr3 ram @ 2000 mhz
Raidmax 750w psu
Segate 500gb sata hdd
I put everything together, it boots into the BIOS perfectly. Then when I try to select a boot device, it gives me
"Reboot and select proper Boot device
or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key"
The BIOS detects the sata hdd and the CD drive, and allows me to boot from them from the menu.
I have tried installing Ubuntu from a cd, but it gives me the same error. I have also tried installing ubuntu from a usb drive using unetbootin. It will get to the menu and when I select one of the options, it just sits there and becomes unresponsive to the keyboard. Once it got to the splash screen, and then froze after about 5 seconds.
My windows 7 install disk gives the same error.
Can someone please help me out? the cd drive is over 10 years old and I dont think it reads dvds, which is what i think the windows installation disk is? but it should have read the ubuntu cd-r.
