    minecraftmeun5; Hi ! Welcome to the forum.

    Be advised that release 10.04 is no longer supported. The required software repositories no longer exist for the desktop.

    May I suggest you install a current release Lubuntu ? Lubuntu is designed for "older" hardware.

    I trust that will be a much better experience.

    one big step

    minecraftmeun5; Well,

    That is not good !
    OK, Roll our sleeves up and go to work.
    Let's find the cause ->
    Can you boot the liveDVD ( you did burn to a DVD, yes ?) to "try ubuntu" mode to the desk top ?
    What processor are you using in the computer ?
    What Graphics card are you using ?

    Maybe we can tweak the boot parameters and get you to boot in "try ubuntu" mode ? see then what it will take in the actual install.

    look'n for cause and effect

    I can not get to the "try ubuntu" part as this happenes when the bios boots from the CD. the graphics card looks like a eVGA GeForce4 MX440. the processor is a Intel Pentium 4 but i am not sure. The Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-8IEXP rev 1.2 i think.

    Re: Unable to Install Ubuntu 10.04.4 Desktop

    minecraftmeun5; Well !

    Let's try this:
    Boot the liveDVD;
    At the purple splash screen (stick figure keyboard emblems at bottom of screen) -> hit any key ->
    Language screen -> escape key to accept the default ->
    Booting options screen -> f6 key (other options) -> arrow down to the preset option(s)space or enter to accept and then the escape key to exit;
    Try "nomodeset" at this time; for other additions the boot options kernel boot line is now available, one may append "other" desired boot parameters to the end of the line that are not present in the "presets" - not of concern at this time.
    Enter key to continue the boot process to the GUI desk top; Degraded graphics is OK at this point, as we can fix that at a later time too.

    For now we just want to get you booting to the desktop within the "try ubuntu" mode. Once we know the booting parameter required, we can see about starting the installer.

    we keep plugging away at this
