Also the core part before you started to install any of the OS's check your Motherboard specification. Try to check it out in the webpage. Also suggest you could check your BIOS compatibility. Some new/old boards doesnt really allow kernels such as Unix to be installed. Should work for most of it, but some doesnt allow. Give a try. If your Bios doesnt allow to install the OS as you said. Try check the BIOS webpage for setting tips. There should have some suggestion on setting Jumper wires on your Motherboard. Do post back.
