How can I install Ubuntu to Drive E:\. (I have several fixed drives.) I think it keeps trying to install itself to C:\ and C:\ is my storage drive.
My Windows boot drive is F:\
and the blank drive to which I want to install Ubuntu - as dual boot) is E:

HI and have you tried the manual installation and select the partition you want to use?

Sorry I don't know how to try the manual method. Can you advise?

When I try to boot from the disk I get the following message

Buffer I/O error on device sr0 logical block32
Buffer I/O error on device sr0 logical block33
Buffer I/O error on device sr0 logical block32
Buffer I/O error on device sr0 logical block33 (last 2 digits in line keep alternating.)

BusyBox V1.1.3 (Debian 1:1.1.3 5Ubuntu12 Built in shell (ash
(initransfs)

All this on a DOS type black screen. I can get to Help but don't understand the commands offered.

My XP and boot drive is F:\
My C and D drives are my data only
I want to install Ubuntu to E:\ which will be an Ubuntu dedicated drive.

I would guess the CD is trying to install to C:

??????????????
Should I be hitting F8 or ESC as Ubuntu is trying to load? If so, what do I do then?

Ok could you give us some system specs and I believe those errors are from a bad burn. These links may help

Then you may want to do a checksum on the cd

Also remember to burn the cd as slow as possible.
