Okay here's the deal...

I downloaded the newest version of Ubuntu for my Intel based Apple Computer.
I also downloaded rEFlt, when I boot up, I see the option to boot Linux from the CD, when I do, I go to the Purple screen with the keyboard and Universal Access on it and then I go to a page that runs some code. But, after that I get stuck on a black screen and my computers fans start going on and off. I don't believe that it's the CD because I can launch it and download it on my virtual machine just fine, but for some reason I can't dual boot. Please help!

Edit: The Black Screen doesn't have a blinking text _ on it.

Also, as you can tell, I'm new to Linux.
