I have a Dell that is a few years old, trying to install Ubuntu on it just for something new to try. The computer currently has windows 7, which will boot and run fine, but I'd like to wipe the whole thing and just use Ubuntu.
I have created a live USB, and I know it works because I can actually run Ubuntu off the USB on my other laptop. When I try to run it on my dell, however, all that comes up is "an operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system."
I am a complete newbie to this, so I have no idea what is wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
