I just built my first computer, and I need help getting Ubuntu installed.
I downloaded Ubuntu, and put it on my flash drive.
I plugged it into one of the USB ports that is connected directly to the motherboard. For some reason, the flash drive doesn't light up when I plug it into the the USB port that is built into the case; maybe I plugged that into the wrong place on the motherboard.
Then I'll start the machine and hit delete on my keyboard once I see the Bios splash screen to access the UI for Bios. When I go into Bios, I can see an icon labeled USB, so I made that the first Boot devise priority.
Then I restart and do not press delete and received a message that says: Remove disks or other media. Press any key to restart.
So I remove the flash drive and hit F on my keyboard. Now I have a message that says: Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key.
I plugged the flash drive back in a hit F on my keyboard. Now I have the same message: Remove disks or other media. Press any key to restart.
Do I have to do something to the USB? Is Ubuntu supposed to be an iso file? Can I use the USB ports that are directly on the Motherboard and which is which? There's six of them and the mouse and keyboard seem to work fine on them.
