I tried to install Ubuntu on my son's computer.
Tried Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10.
The built in CD drive is broken, but there is a USB external DVD
I did setup the BIOS to boot from "USB-CDROM".
The computer powers up, access lamp light up, showing that the
computer is trying to access the external drive, but then
I get on the sceen something like
"Booting from CD: ___"
where the underbar section blinks.
Yet, the computer does not accept any imput, keyboard mouse etc.
do not respond and the
external drive, just sits there, after its access lamp had lit up
Is there anything that can be done in this situation.
All ** I ** could do was turn off the power.
Could you take the external drive out of its housing and put it in
the computer? Then when you get a chance you can buy another drive
to put in the external housing.I guess the latter might take a
while, with the situation over there.I wish you and your countrymen
the best of luck!
