View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu Cd will not load

October 12th, 2009, 04:52 PM
Hello everyone. Got an issue with loading ubuntu cd, I burn the iso onto a disc(the 64 bit one) but it always gives me the "I/O error boot cd" and has the 204200EF message on the top left of the screen. Ive tried advice on other forums and finally decided to post here as a last resort.

Things I have made sure to do:
-Changing different cd's(RW to R, tried using a dvd rw)
-burned iso at 1x and made sure the disc included all the files, not just an image.

basically, I get to the loading screen with the options and it gives me the error when I try to Install Ubuntu. "Trying ubuntu without changing your pc" option does nothing either.

Any ideas? should i try the 32 bit iso and see if that works? I'm just tired of waisting cd's and am trying to get some concrete fixes before i blow through my rack of re-writeables :D

Pre-thanks to all posters!

Have you run md5sum on the CD? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM

your cd writer could need the lens cleaned try writing on another computer.
What software are you using to burn the disc.

I've checked the md5sum and my hashs didnt match, so im gonna download it again.. but I am using imgburn, the program recommended in the how to burn section of the site.
