I am new with Ubuntu it seems to me like a great option to get over Windows. I have never used it though so I am completely lost. I had Windows 7 64 bit installed on my desktop, (It has a AMD Phoenom II X4 945, ASUS M4A89GTD PRO (No USB 3.0), 4 gb ram DDR3, 500 HDD). A disk with Ubuntu 12.something was given to me to install it and I did but then I was told to upgrade to 14.04 the latest version and the system did not recognize my password. Then we tried with a disc 14.01 but it just do not work. Then I put a new hdd in but now even though when it accepts the hdd I have the following error:

"Reboot and select proper Boot device or insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key"

Then if a press a key I have the same error again. The boot order that I have is: CD HDD USB

I hope you can help me folks, Thank you

It sounds like your Ubuntu boot media is not set up correctly, and even though your computer is trying to boot from the disc it can't. If you have a Windows computer on hand, I would grab a fresh copy of the Ubuntu 14.04.1 Desktop .iso from the website and then install Linux Live USB Creator to create a bootable Ubuntu thumb drive. Alternatively, you can just burn the new .iso file to a DVD, but I like Linux Live USB Creator because it verifies the integrity of the disc image for you. If you do choose to burn the new disc image to a DVD, make sure you check the hash and compare it to the list here.

Another minor note would be to grab the 64-bit .iso because your computer is capable of running it.
