Oh boy, have I got myself into a pickle.
I found an old computer in my garage and decided to bring it to life into an Ubuntu Server for home. After plugging in the live USB and waiting for it to set up, I saw that it stayed at 76% for a while, so I decided to force shutdown and try again.
This time, it does not seem to detect any USB's at all -- even my WiFi dongle doesn't work flash lights when it boots up! I tried reburning the flash drive and changing where it's plugged in, but nothing changes. I tried disconnecting the HDD to see if it boots up then, but it gives the message:
DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER.
I'm really at loss at what I can do. How do I boot up my live USB if my USB ports aren't working?
- ~700 MB RAM
- ~20 GB Drive
- Uses WiFi Dongle, which I planned to configure later
- Booted from Live USB
- Almost all ports are USB 1.0
- Includes two disc drives and a floppy drive
- Has BIOS
