abferm Posted June 18, 2010 Share Posted June 18, 2010 Hi I recently decided I wanted to try setting up a home linux server using an old pc that has been sitting around forever. So, I hooked it up. the hard drive was making horrible sounds so I knew it was bad. Luckily I had a 40GB drive in my closet. I stuck it in the machine and installed Ubuntu Server on it, but it wont boot because the motherboard is so old it wont recognize my 40 GB. I was wondering if there is any way I could write a floppy or CD that would boot the file system on the hard drive. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
