Im attempting to install ubuntu onto my pc using a usb i have also attempted using a dvd.
It is on a pc with no OS where i formatted Win8.1 from the console on a recovery disk.
When i select install ubuntu it looks like it is loading for a few seconds a few lines of a console pass then it reboots the PC

Did you download the Ubuntu iso file from the official Ubuntu site?
Did you do an md5 checksum on the downloaded file to verify its integrity?
What software did you use to put the iso file on a DVD (did you select the opton to 'burn as an image') or usb?
Reboot and see if you can note some of the info that scrolls by is it might be helpful.
Can you post some information on your hardware?
