# Install Help

I tried installing Ubuntu on my computer. Turns out that the CD-ROM is not compatible with it (it's phillips). Can I install it from an external CD drive (my computer does not boot from external CD Drives)? If so, how?
I don't have a floppy drive so I can't use boot floppies.

I also contemplated installing straight from the harddrive as documented https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Installation/FromWindows" [Broken].

However this isn't working either as on boot, it just shows me the
Code:
grub>
prompt.

Does anyone have any ideas?
