I purchased a new hard drive and I want to install Ubuntu 16 on it. I do not want to dual boot with windows I just want to install Ubuntu. I already have a boot CD with Ubuntu on it. When I tried to use the boot disk and install Ubuntu on my new hard drive it didn't work. I hooked up the new hard drive to my windows computer and I can see that all the space is still unallocated. I thought the install would partition the drive as needed. Do I need to partition the new drive myself for an Ubuntu install and if so how? I have installed Ubuntu before on an old Windows drive and it worked fine. It just erased everything and did the install.
Also, I have an Intel i7 processor and the iso says it's for AMD. I thought that it should still work but maybe that's a factor.
I know that there are similar question but they don't seem to address the particular issue I am having:
And i have already read How do I install Ubuntu?.
If that had solved my issue i wouldn't be asking the question.
NOTE: When I tried to intall ubuntu I used the boot CD and selected install. Then it displayed the image attached and was stuck there for over 24 hours. I ended up just shutting it of. image
