I've been trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 all day. I've done it before, several times, but it doesn't appear to work anymore.

The facts are these:
I've tested my memory. It passed.
I checked for errors. It said "Errors found in 1 files." No log or detail on the file.
I md5'd, and the iso is flawless.
I've managed to get it to work in a virtual machine.
I have installed ubuntu once _inside_ my current windows installation, but I uninstalled it. I wish to install it alongside, not inside.

The CD itself boots up, but when I try to run the demo it freezes; when I try to install from the disc, it freezes at the same point.

I've burned two different CDs at the lowest speed possible. They both freeze at the same point.

I put the ISO onto a USB using LinuxLive USB Creator, but my computer does not recognize it and, instead, jumps directly to windows.

I'm not quite sure what the problem is, and, quite frankly, I wish to bang my head against a wall.

Perhaps you can try again with the new 10.10 .iso when it comes out tomorrow.

I don't want that. I've successfully installed 10.04, and I intend to do so again. There should be no reason why this isn't working.

Telling me to wait for 10.10 is like telling me that, because my dog is dying, I should get one tomorrow because they're coming out with the Labrador 10000.

Not a perfect analogy, but come on. Besides, how would one assume that 10.10 will work if 10.04 doesn't? Is there some major, debilitating error that has been fixed?

TIPS:

1) - Try New Download, by Direct Download - not to use Download Accelerator Programs.

2) - Try To Burn the ISO Image on Velocity 4X-8X -(with DVD Disc or CD-RW Disc)

3) - See also: Installation:

Eh, I just installed 9.04 and upgraded from there.

I'm still not sure what the problem was, but this was a viable solution.
