I have a Medion desktop 32-bit PC running on Windows Vista built in. Windows will not let me install Ubuntu 11.10 from disk or installer. I keep getting an error message saying that I need to insert the boot disk into a hard disk (When the CD is already in the DVD-ROM drive)?
I have managed to bypass this error message but I cannot get Wubi to install Ubuntu as an application in Windows either. The installation crashes near the end with a message saying that there is an error log message I can't get at.
To complicate matters Windows Vista is missing part of its
CHKPSK files (No idea why). I don't know if this is relevant but it may have something to do with it.
I can get a very slow Ubuntu 11.10 live demo going from turning PC on with CD in DVD-ROM drive, but I am a bit reluctant to set up a dual boot from the live demo as I am not sure that I would be able to completely uninstall Ubuntu (Removing hard drive partitions) if I have to in future.
