I am trying to boot from an ubuntu live CD then install it onto my system. However, when i try to access the boot menu to make th system off the CD i am asked to enter a password which i have forgotten........ :whistling: woops...

If anyone has any ideas of how to get round this i would be very grateful.

There is no OS currently installed.

Thanks.

You mean you forgot the BIOS password? You can reset by changing a jumper on your motherboard.

Go into the bios, and go to the "System Information" area. Does it show your drive?

If not, then it's probably an unconnected cord or a faulty drive/psu.
