View Full Version : [ubuntu] Bad Disk?

October 23rd, 2009, 03:34 PM
I just made an ubuntu disk to dual boot on my windows vista computer, for some reason it wont let me install it im stuck on the screen where it asks if you wanna run the live cd, install ubuntu, check disk. I can select different options but when i press enter nothing happens i can still use the F keys to change settings and stuff, i really want to get the live cd going and see if i can get my wireless usb network adapter to work.

If you can boot using the Live CD,perhaps you can install after you have started the live session.

The disk runs, but when it comes to the menu it wont let me select to run it without changing anything, i can move the selections up and down, but when i hit enter nothing happens

Do not hit any key.The Live CD should boot up automatically after sometime.Atleast that is what used to happen when i tried a Live CD.

I went into the keymap option, and when i select USA and hit Enter it worked so why would Enter work in the keymap option but not in the regular menu when i try and select install ubuntu

Start with the troubleshooting section of the page linked above. It looks like you may have either a bad download or a bad burn. For some reason that happens from time to time.
