Can you run lspci | grep VGA in a terminal, edit your question with the results please? Also, what happens the first 2 times you press F5?

Choose "Install Ubuntu" then you'll do get the "something else" option.

Just press the Fn + FX combination repeatedly until you get a clone of the desktop.

When you installed Ubuntu on the external hdd, where did you install grub? The default is the internal hdd, so if your internal hdd is still visible in the list of disks and you did not manually choose the external disk for Grub, chances are that Grub was installed on the internal drive.
