    Exclamation I'm installing Kubuntu, and the Kernel Freezes at 28%.

    Hello all,

    I have an OSless computer that I have had ubuntu on before, however, I had a bad install and it wiped my computer. Now I'm trying to get it to work from a Windows Vista, by burning the iso to a CD. The first time I tried, it froze at 21%. The second time, it froze at 21%. I made a new cd with the same iso, and it freezes at 28%. Should I just download a new iso and try again? What write speed should I write it at? I've been writing at maximum speed, but I think I saw write somwhere to write at the 3rd speed.

    In advanced, thanks.

    burn at a lower speed. And download this, and check the integrity of your download by comparing the output of the program to the matching version of these.

    See this page for more information:

    It is just a problem with the cd.

    I don't dare try to give you ideas of my own, considering last time I tried 'fixing' one it becamse "possessed" by a bad flash. But in addition to any Linux-focused suggestions you get, I highly recommend you search the forums over at Club CDFreaks for any possible hardware issues, they seem to be the best place for that.

    Hahaha, the lower burn speed is working. Thanks very much...

    But I'm not going to mark it as solved until the installation works, because I'm going to be gone for an hour.
