I just got my Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P motherboard to boot up CMOS properly and I'd like to move onto installing Ubuntu 12.10 as my main OS on a used HDD currently formatted for windows XP. I have gotten as far as making a functional USB .iso (I can boot up any of my windows computer to U 12.10 normally) and getting my motherboard to boot the post screen properly.
This is my first computer build (newb) but i'm fairly good with instructions. From this point how to i install U 12.10 permanently onto my hdd as the only OS. I should also add in that i have switched the boot order to usb-hdd as first boot device but under boot priority it only lists the hdd (windows xp) and "bootable addin cards"
