    this would be the page where you choose 12.10 or 12.04 install images or opt for the wubi installer

    If you want a separate install skip the wubi and grab one of the images 12.10/12.04 32-bit (if you haven't already got it on the dvd you are trying to boot from) at the links on this page

    You will need to set your PC to boot from CD before HDD in the BIOS
    This is the iso I was using: ubuntu-12.10-desktop-i386.iso. I think I was accidentally opting for the wubi. Thank you for clearing that up. I appreciate it.

    Edit: Also burn at low speed.
    That's what I am downloading now and when it gets done, I am going to burn it and try booting with it. Once again, thank you.

    I was about to say that you couldn't have been accidentally opting for wubi, BUT, I just took a look inside my own 12.10 iso and saw that wubi.exe is included there.

    Let me clarify, I don't have windows on any machine at home (haven't had since 2002) so I had no idea that wubi.exe was on the regular install iso as well.

    I guess what happened is that after you burned the iso to DVD wubi.exe autoran and that's where you got the dialogue boxes you initially referred to.

    Whether you use the 12.10-i386 or the 12.04-i386 (that you're now downloading) I am now 99% certain your problem is the boot order of your devices in your BIOS which is why on reboot you went straight back into windows namely because the HDD is the first selected device

    Switch the order to boot from CD first and you should see the Ubuntu installer load up

    Success!! I have successfully installed Ubuntu and I am using it as I type this. It was simply needing to hit the boot key and install from a CD/DVD RW.

    I have left Windows on (just partitioned the hard drive) for now until I get used to the Linux system.

    Thank you everyone for your help!
