-=PCTechTalk=- Re: Gateway Question : Update

Found on the side of the tower a COA for Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 4.0.  
If that helps.
Burned Ubuntu to a cd, but cannot get it load. Keeps opening up to something 
called Disk shredder.

Tried 3 different hard drives in here, It would see them but would not boot to 
them.  1 Would go back to the bios page and then pick which one you want page.  
Other 2 say inset disk into drive A and press any key to continue.  2 of the 3 
disks have XP on them the 3rd is clean.  No OS at all.

That's it for now
