View Full Version : [ubuntu] (Please Help) Installing Ubuntu 8.04 on a PC

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to install Ubuntu on 2 laptops (HP and Acer) and I encountered some difficulties.

I started the installation process and either I choose "Install" or "Try before install", I get the same thing: The installation begins and it stops by showing some message about commands and I'm prompted to type "help" and, by doing so, I get a list of commands and I can't get any further. What's wrong?

Previously, I already installed Ubuntu on 3 laptops and it works perfectly. Thank you for your help.

What kind of error messages do you get?

Have you tried version 8.10?
