I recently burnt the Ubuntu ISO to a CD to boot from it. The steps I took:
- Entered BIOS menu to change booting priority to CD as number 1
- Restart with the CD in the drive.
I hear the CD spinning but PC then skips to back to Windows startup. I tried this a few times, it keeps ignoring the CD. Similar story with my USB stick (after also having changed boot priority to the USB stick).
I'm at a real loss here because the PC is freshly installed with Windows 7, all updates are there, and I am unable to get Ubuntu booted up.
For the reference, I tried the CD on my Macbook Pro, by forcing boot from CD and it worked fine, Ubuntu ran without a hitch.
Any help would be much appreciated. Please note I am no expert on this.
