I have Ubuntu 11.04 installed on a Dell PowerEdge 1800 machine. For some reason neither the CDrom work, nor does an external boot drive. I can see them once I am booted and into the linux environment.

I would like to install a fresh copy of Ubuntu 10.04 LTS instead. How should I go about. I have access to the internal drives and grub configuration.

I just installed 12.04 on a poweredge 1800 without a hitch. It's working great from the first boot. I've installed mysql, apache2.2 the works. Grub worked first time. I did completely reformat the drives and partitioned before I started. I left the original Dell stuff in it's partition. You may give that a try if you are still looking. I know this is an old thread but I thought the comment was appropriate for anyone looking to install Ubuntu on a Poweredge 1800. All hardware works as well.
