My System is 64 bit so I downloaded an ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr copy from its website and installed it successfully in my sandisk cruzer blade 4 GB Pen drive using Universal usb installer.
When I restart my computer , opening boot menu by pressing F2 key, I have 5 options for in boot priority order- 1. USB CD
I just finished building my new computer, and popped in my recently installed 64-bit disc and an old PATA drive connected on IDE, (it worked, I could access a busted Windoze OS). The installer showed the little guy next to a keyboard on the purple background, then showed the Ubuntu loading screen. A terminal window, white on black, displayed various things initializing successfully.
I've got a multi-boot system that has Ubuntu 14.04 on an old 40GB IDE hard drive. Along with an IDE connector that computer has 4 SATA connectors on the motherboard of which 2 are occupied by Windows XP and 7 and one other is occupied by a SATA DVD drive.
I have a hard drive with Linux Mint installed that I recently rescued from a dying computer and have been using a USB to SATA adapter that comes with an external power adapter to try to get some data off that hard drive onto my netbook which uses Ubuntu 12.04.
Unfortunately the hard drive won't mount, and I can't figure out how to access the data in it.
I searched for an answer, but was unable to find...
1. I have little knowledge of Ubuntu, I am using 12.10 (I tried Ubuntu several years ago).
2. I built a computer, ufei bios, multiple hard drives, SSD and two sata 6. Windows 7 is on the SSD, (drive C:), Ubuntu is on a sata 6 (drive F:).
