I made a Ubuntu 13.04 64 bit USB drive, using that I installed Ubuntu onto the 1 terabyte hdd in the machine, thus erasing my windows 8 installation (I use Ubuntu on all of my computers and have always done this). After it finished installing it told me to reboot, I clicked the button to reboot and it succesfully did that.
The problem is when it is trying to boot up it does not seem to recognize my HDD as a place to boot from, it simply gives me an error stating that there are not valid boot devices. If I place a live USB in there though, it will boot fine off of that. Or if I go into the boot menu, it does not display the HDD as an option to boot from.
If it matters, I have reinstalled it twice now, and the Ubuntu installer did recognize that Ubuntu had been installed.
- AMD 6 core 3.5 ghz processor
- 24 gigabytes of ram (two 8 gb sticks and two 4 gb sticks)
- 1 terabyte HDD
- 128 gigabyte SSD (I was hoping to install Ubuntu on this, but mount /home on my HDD, but by now I just want a computer which boots up :/ )
