View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu on a CD?

Never mind. I'm an idiot. Thanks! :)

I am wanting to install Ubuntu on an old computer of mine that only has a cd-rom drive. I tried to put a DVD drive in it, but the computer doesn't like it and it won't start with the drive plugged in.
I can get the Ubuntu image burned onto a DVD but not a CD. Am I doing something wrong? If I can get it onto a cd instead of a dvd, I can make it work.

The normal ubuntu image is a CD image so you should very well be able to get it on a CD. What is the filename of the image you downloaded?

Also make sure you are burning the image rather than just copying the image file on to the CD.
