1. Burn a new cd on low speed, at 4x.

2. If that also fails, download a new ISO image, best from torrent because it checks for corruption during download, and burn a cd at 4x.

It sounds like bad cd either from bad burn, or the ISO is corrupted during download.

i did burn it at the lowest speed possible, is there anyway i can check the iso file for corruption? i still have it on a my computer?

Also, am i ment to make it burnproof, under properties? because that is automatic clicked.

Here are the MD5SUMS for all the different Lucid ISOs:

And here is how you check that on different OS (for windows scroll down):

cheers Darko, the md5 sum is correct and the new burn of the iso came up with no errors so im hoping it will work this time:)
