I want to use Linux along with windows on my computer. My computer has Windows7 preinstalled. One day I went to installed Ubuntu on my laptop, the installation was successful and i suppose i had no problem on partitioning. Then I went on to reboot my laptop and tried to boot Ubuntu.
At first everything was fine. Then, suddenly the booting stopped. Nothing happened after that so I was forced to cut the power of my laptop to shut it down. I checked the installation, and even tried to reinstall it. No luck. I thought it was Ubuntu's problem. Then one day I wanted to try Chromium OS Lime. I successfully wrote the image into my usb. Then when I tried to boot the same thing happened.
I told my friend that my computer doesn't boot Linux so he gave me his USB stick to try to boot his backtrack. His backtrack boots normally on other computers, but still doesn't work with my computer.
Evidently Linux doesn't work on my computer. So my question is, what is making Linux not work on my computer and how do i solve the problem?
Besides, someone told me that my BIOS is forbidding non-windows OS, and another person told me it is something about the hard memory and something about SATA, but I know nothing about those.
