I've used Ubuntu 12.04 till January 2013 side by side with Windows 8, then my HDD got burnt. I had to buy a new HDD. Before installing new HDD my technician updated my BIOS. After that I cannot install any version of Ubuntu either side by side with Windows 8 or a fresh install. When I boot Ubuntu from a DVD or a pendrive I can use the live session but when I try to install it PC restarts. It happens so fast that I cannot read the message on the black screen. My PC Configuration as follows

Processor Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600
Motherboard Intel Corporation DG45ID (LGA775)
Hard Drive 500GB TOSHIBA DT01ACA050 RAM 4GB (2GB 800Mhz+ 2GB 667Mhz)

What would be my solution?
