This question already has an answer here:
I am trying to install ubuntu on my desktop.
I used a usb that I had used successfully to my laptop, but it doesn't work for desktop. (12.04 32bit) When I am trying to boot from usb it says that no os detected in usb and only choice is to restart.
I have also burned a dvd with ubuntu 12.10 64bit but when I try to install I get an error: [Errno 5] input/output error
However, I can use the dvd to "try" (and not install) ubuntu.
No I don't have any os in hdd. Before it was dual boot windows 7 and windows 8.
I don't know what to do! Please help!
