How do you install Ubuntu?

Go to and click the button for "Get Ubuntu". The fastest way to get a CD is to download a CD image (it will be a .iso file), and burn it to a CD. The file will be almost 700Mb, which can take 4-8 hours on a broadband connection. Note that the contents of the .iso file must be burned on a disc, not the .iso file itself. To do this, you will need a CD burning application such as InfraRecorder (, which will burn the data in the .iso to disc. It may be a wise idea to backup important files you don't want to lose at this point. If you intend to completely overwrite all your files and previous operating system, or if this is a new computer, you don't need to.Boot your computer with the CD in the drive. You may have to change settings in your BIOS to make the computer boot from the CD. At the Ubuntu menu, select either "Try Ubuntu Without any Change" or "Install Ubuntu". If you "Try Ubuntu", you will be taken to a working desktop environment, and there will be a shortcut on the desktop to install. Follow the on-screen instructions to install Ubuntu. If you are installing alongside an existing operating system and you do not want to destroy it and all your data, be sure you select the option to resize existing partitions and install side by side. Changes made after this point are generally irreversable. Once you have given the installer all necessary information and options, it will install Ubuntu on your system. Depending on your hardware, this can take up to 30 minutes, but most modern systems should install fairly quickly. Shut down and restart your computer. Ubuntu will instruct you when to remove the CD from the CD drive. When you reboot, you will see your new Ubuntu installation. From here you can check for updates (there are always updates), set up drivers for your hardware, and install new programs. To connect to the internet initially, you will most likely need to connect to a wired network by ethernet.

How do you fix a still waiting for root device error in Ubuntu when I installed with two Hard Drives mounted and removed one?

If you get a message in Ubuntu stating "Still waiting for root device" and you HAVE installed Ubuntu while an external sata hard drive was attached or an extra sata drive that was removed later. Check the GRUB file! You might need to boot into Ubuntu with live CD and change /boot/grub/grub.cfg on the boot drive. The grub.cfg file is where to change the root drive device settings. Change from /dev/??sdb1?? to what your root drive is. usually /dev/sda1THIS IS ONLY FOR NEW UBUNTU USERS THAT INSTALLED UBUNTU WITH A REMOVABLE SATA DRIVE ATTACHED TO THE COMPUTER DURING INSTALLATION. OR FOR PEOPLE THAT KNOW THEIR BOOT DRIVE IS NOT WHERE ROOT IS TRYING TO LOAD.If you are not one of these users then just Google all the other fixes. Most answers say "It can not be the GRUB device settings", but it is sometimes.More Answers:There are several possible ways that error could occur. The most likely reason is that the file system or hard drive has become damaged in some fashion. Booting in recovery mode should offer more detail as to the cause of the error, as well as providing the opportunity to run fsck if the file system is damaged.
