Just got a brand new box (MSI H61M motherboard) and I'm trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 on it from a CD I just burned.
Right off the bat, if I try to install from CD it loads directly into BusyBox with:
Unable to find a medium containing a live file system
Sounds like a SATA mode problem, which by default is in IDE mode. So, if I try changing to AHCI mode, I manage to boot with the CD, but the install will not continue. When I check
df I see that indeed the hard disk is not identified.
What is the proper procedure for this case?
