    Permission Denied

    Hello, after time away, I decided to give Ubuntu another shot. I am using the LiveCD to install inside windows and I am getting the permission denied error after the installation. I am also the Admin on the laptop so why would I be getting a permission denied message? If someone can help me with this, that would be great!!

    At what point are you getting the "Permission denied" message? What do you see on the screen when you get it?

    Thank you for this bit of information. I will try burning another LiveCD and see if that works. If I return, then that shows it didn't work lol.
