Had enough of a buggy falling over dead installation of XP Prof so decided to go for some linux, was going to use Ubuntu, googled and found this, seemed perfect for a big noob like me who used Ubuntu for one project at Uni and got very confuddled!
LiveCD 32bit Isadora Installer
booted from CD
Followed all the prompts
Selected to fully wipe and use entire harddrive and wipe over win xp prof
Waited until completed to press reboot/restart button
removed disk when asked and pressed enter
Now all I got is a black screen with a white _ flashing.
I repeated the whole process and same thing happens.
I now have no OS ;_; thankfully I have my trusty netbook.
So help please, where did I go wrong and how do I fix it?
(is it because I used the 32bit installer but I have 64bit hardware?)
I know I should have tried a dual boot first but so sick of that computer just wanted to give it a total fresh start
Some basic comp stats off top of head, let me know if you want the details I'll try remember them!
Asus p5b mobo
ATI mid-range dx9 graphics card
3GB DDR2 RAM
160GB SATA HDD - installation drive
400GB SATA HDD - storage drive, not touched by this AFAIK
