Thanks for all the comments, but I can't boot Ubuntu 12.04 or Mythbuntu 12.04.  Considering that the IDE issue appears to have existed for many years I have questions about the value of LTS.  BTW Debian 7 does not have any problem booting or installing on my hardware with no changes to anything (BIOS or hardware settings)  I guess I got turned off by booting Mythbuntu 12.04 live cd on a different PC to find that pulseaudio version that was installed was version 1. I know that pulseaudio is not absolutely required I do want to distribute the audio over my home network.
