I have a Compaq mini 110 netbook with a broken HDD. I replaced the HDD and want to install ubuntu. The netbook does not have an optical drive so i have made a bootable USB. The problem is that when i select the USB to boot from BIOS i get a message to reboot and select a proper device or insert bootable media. Does the HDD has to be formatted first? Any suggestions?
Thanks is advance Simos
