How are we supposed to know? You didn't tell us anything other than "it installed fine". My guess is, it did NOT install fine. lol

Try to power off the system completely. Then when it boots up can you tell us any signs that you may see at all.

Is the bios changed back to the hard drive?

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Sorry about my lack of response, i am very new to linux and its software but i will check on the bios but i disconnected the power completely and then restarted the pc i still ended up on a black screen, i will check the bios, but i have read that it might be the GRUB loader, but then again i do not know for sure

Post any signs that may indicate where it has failed too. Splash screen visible?
