I have a gigabyte GA-770-D3L MOTHERBAORD and my first hdd is SSD OCZ 120gbytes , I can't boot ubuntu ! Not even tries to load it!

Is my motherboard incompatible? Its very strange.

  • I have set the boot order all right
  • It doesn't even get me to the grub
  • When I install windows it's booting normally.
  • cd rom boots like a charm but hdd refuse to proceed to booting.
  • I tried to disable the efi boot on bios (its for windows 7 64bit) but it made no difference.

are you trying to boot ubuntu from the cd, from the usb or from the hard disk? if its from the cd, could be the boot order from the bios that isn't correct if its from the usb, it might be the iso from the usb that's not working correctly the 3rd option cant help
