I have a harddrive with Lubuntu installed on it. I can only enter the guest account because I've forgotten the password to the main accounts.

So I decided to make a fresh install of Ubuntu.

I am using an old motherboard ASUS A7V600 with AMD 32-bit processor.

I've setup BIOS to boot from DVD-drive but it won't boot the DVD-RW disc with the Ubuntu install in it.

The thing is when I enter the guest account I can browse the content on the DVD, so it has no problem reading the DVD-RW-disc.

I found the manual of the Motherboard but I can't understand half of what is written in it. http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socka/kt600/a7v600/e1372_a7v600b.pdf

Can the problem be that this BIOS does only supports "CD boots" and not "DVD boots"?

I appreciate any kind of help I can get. Thanks!
