I have a home built computer and, after a while trying to get used to windows (I'm coming over from Mac) I decided to give Linux a try. I've tried installing from a CD-R, but nothing happens. I've set up the BIOS to boot from disc, but it keeps booting to Windows.
Specifics: I am trying to install a custom distro called BlenderBuntu, wich, as I understand it, is Ubuntu stripped down to the bare bones so it call run two programs (Blender and The GIMP) really quickly. Thanks for helping out a noob :)!!!
I've gone to the boot menu, and selected by disk drive. The menu said to insert media and reboot or check cable. I made sure that my disk was inserted properly and checked the cable, but it still went back to the same message. I tired loading the ISO onto a USB stick, and when I selected that in the Boot Menu, it kept displaying the same message, to "press any key or insert proper media device and reboot," every time I pressed any key.
