I use Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a dual boot system. I upgraded my PC's motherboard to Gigabyte GA-H77M-D3H motherboard. 12.04 no longer sees the network interface ! I now want to upgrade to 13.04. Is there a 13.04 download I can put onto a DVD and then upgrade 12.04 after I have booted up 12.04 ?

You might want to consider upgrading to 13.10 instead as support for 13.04 ends in January. Or install the Hardware Enablement Stack. – LiveWireBT Dec 16 '13 at 12:52

Boot with the live CD/DVD of the new version. If this can see the network card it should connect to the internet and give you the upgrade option when you select install.

Yes you can upgrade to 13.04 using a DVD instalation. Just put the DVD in as you would normally install ubuntu, and when this screen apears: enter image description here Just make sure you chose to upgrade.
