I have tried several days to install Ubuntu on my new computer. Windows was preinstalled. I have installed the 64 bit 12.10 and 12.04. I have also tried the 32 bit version of 12.04. After having installed the OS, the computer restarts, and every times this message comes: Error 1962: No operating system found. Press any key to repeat boot sequence. I have tried to follow advices in different threads on the forum, but it does not work for me. I hope anyone can help me!

I have found a workaround.

With Super Grub 2 Disk you can boot machine from CD.

  1. Download from:
    Select the (ISO) format.

  2. Burn the ISO to CD using image burning software.

  3. Power on the machine with the CD in the drive to boot.
