Hi guys,

i am new in this Linux distribution and may be the problem which i'll try to describe would sound a bit funny:P
i am not able to make a fresh installation on my laptop computer.

1. download 10.04 dvd from Ubuntu official site.
2. burn the image (tried couple of times)
3. boot from dvd - successfully

@first screen it does not matter what i choose - just nothing happens - i'd tried all available options in F menus - but still nothing.

looks like i have to disable some checks - but i have no idea how...
Thanks a lot in advance for your help!

Can you Live CD aka "Try Ubuntu Without Installing" successfully? I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend that you Install the ISO onto a USB Flash Disk.

If you can "Try Ubuntu Without Installing" and have about 2GB RAM and a 1gb USB flash disk handy:

1. Turn on computer with CD/DVD inside
2. Select: Try Ubuntu Without Installing
3. Download the Ubuntu ISO into the environment
4. Insert the USB flash drive(min 1gb)
5. Click Start > System > Administration
6. Open Startup Disk Creator
7. Click Other and find that ISO file you just downloaded
8. In the 2nd box, select your USB flash from the list
8b.It might require you to format it.
9. I usually select the Discarded On Shutdown Radio button, because if you select the other option, it will save your work to the Flash Disk
10. select Make Startup Disk



If you are using Windows:

Send me a private message if you have any questions. I have done this literally DOZENS of times.

Did you use the Ubuntu method or the PenDriveLinux/Windows method?


The best way to make an Ubuntu installation disc out of an ISO is to put it on a Flash Drive via the Live USB way within Ubuntu. Let me know how the FULL install goes.

Hi Greg,

i used PenDriveLinux to create usb boot flash from a windows system.
then i performed a fresh full install on my laptop.
everything went fine.
UBUNTU ROCKS!

it would be great if some error message popup from CD installation in case of any problem. regular users like me could try searching error code over internet to find solution.
I guess that in my case - there was an issue with vmlinuz load...
