I have an Asus X54c laptop with 4gb ram, I'm trying to install ubuntu 12.04, 64bit version in place of Windows 7. I'm able to get into the menu but I can't seem to get the settings so my laptop will install the cd.

I don't want the dual boot mode, the version of windows has problems and just rather delete it altogether.

Besides, now I discovered wine, it kind of makes windows obsolete to me anyway.

How do I set my laptop up so it'll install from the cd? Thanks
