    Ubuntu Studio DVD non bootable

    Hi guys,

    I downloaded the Ubuntu Studio 12.10 iso torrent and burnt it on DVD. My bios is setup to boot from Cd/DVD drive first. When PC is attempting to boot it reads the Ubuntu Studio dvd and then the screen just remains blank with a blinking cursor on the upper left corner. It remains there indefinitely until I switch off the pc.
    I tried to boot from different pc systems nothing happens. I tried the wubi.exe in windows wubi doesn't execute.

    I attempted a usb install using a bootable usb drive with unetbootin that is not success as well. Instead it brings me to a command prompt initramfs.

    I tried on every pc and laptop both dvd and usb they do the same thing as above.

    Now I'm testing the usb from a pc with an ECS G31T-M7 REV 1.0 motherboard.


    Someone please help, I couldn't have downloaded 2 gig of Ubuntu Studio data for nothing.

    Thanks for helpinh in advance.

    Well, since you downloaded ISO via torrent it should be ok. You can check again its md5 sum, but that should be ok since it's downloaded via torrent.

    If you have active linux check md5 sum on burned DVD, to eleminate burning issues.

    Thanks for the reply, I have an active Linux but how do I check md5 sum? What are the necessary steps?

    Mount DVD
    Open terminal
    Go to DVD folder
    Issue check command
    Code:
    md5sum -c md5sum.txt
    Check if I had written the name of the file correctly.

    Thanks Jejeman,

    I ran that command and terminal returned md5sum: md5sum.txt: no properly formatted MD5 checksum lines found. This is a real struggle.

    Kind regards,

    I don't have 12.10 ISO at the moment, but in all this years of using Ubuntu Studio never had that message about md5sum.txt.
    I guess, burn it again, but since USB is also not working, then maybe its corrupted ISO. Check the sum for ISO.
