[ubuntu] Unable To Find A Medium Containing A Live File System

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello, I found similar issues in other threads, but no one has respondind, so I'll start a new thread: I'm an experienced Windows developer, but a Linux neophyte. I've tried to install Ubuntu desktop on my workstation from a dvd, which results in the above error. My hardware is a Dell XPS-9100 high-end workstation. The OS is Win 7. My option was to install alongside Windows. I formatted part of the second hard drive for Ubuntu. It seems that the kernel can't find the root file system on the second drive. I've not been able to find a way to address this. I'll appreciate all help. (Hardware)
