Desperate to install Ubuntu but can't
I love Ubuntu. Ran it for three years on my Dell that died this morning. Replaced it with a Lenovo IdeaCentre K410 Pentium 64-bit. Learned to hate Windows 8 in a matter of minutes. Downloaded the 781 mb i386 installation file iso. Burned it to DVD. Lenovo wouldn't boot from the DVD. Clicked on Wubi and clicked on Help Me to Boot from CD. Wubi installed "new boot menu entry." Rebooted. Screen gave me a choice of clicking on Windows or Ubuntu. Clicked on Ubuntu. Got error message from Windows Boot Manager saying Windows failed to start. Retried from beginning downloading the amd64.iso file. Followed same procedure. Got identical results.
