My Windows 7 crashed so I formatted my hard drive. I wanted to try Ubuntu so I downloaded it and put it on USB following directions. It installs. I turn my computer off then rearrange my BIOS so HD boots first. Then it says no boot disk and wont load Ubuntu even though all files are on HD. What do I do?

I didn't get it. The installation was finished? Did you enter the Ubuntu Desktop and everything was fine? And after the "rearrange" Ubuntu is not able to boot and you get the message 'no boot disk'? –  silla Feb 6 '13 at 12:59
