Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

So I installed Ubuntu Server 14.04 into my old PC. I used an external USB flash drive, because I couldn't get the optical drives to work. Installation went fie without problems. However, after installation, it wouldn't load it. GRUB would open if I pressed Escape, but when I select Ubuntu, the screen goes blank and the hard drive LED is steady on (not blinking).

Thanks in advance.
