when you say 'download', do you mean 'install'?

and how are you trying to accomplish this?

Please give us a link to that topic "someone" already created, and you should give us more info. How did you try to download it? What didn't work? ...

Please explain one step at a time.

You should retry installing Ubuntu. And do wait long enough. The last % can take a while.

you can't try installing Ubuntu in 9 minutes.

Did you boot up the live CD? Or are you on Wubi. In the last case, can you still access Windows?

Ok, try to go to the add/remove programs utility in Windows and remove Ubuntu from it.

Then Manually download the iso from here: http://www.ubuntu.com/

And then use Wubi to install that file.

You do need a torrent program for this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_BitTorrent_clients

August 17th, 2011, 04:16 PM
11.04 is the most recent version, some say 10.04 is more stable.

You need the desktop version and amd64 will be the best architecture for you.

ok can i keep in touch with u on msn or skype if it wont work??

sanderd17
August 17th, 2011, 04:30 PM
No sorry, can't promise to stay online. In fact, I lost my msn password and currently don't have a skype installation, I should remove those links.

But it's nothing urgent. You still have Windows and as long as you install via Wubi, nothing can go wrong with Windows.
