I would like to install ubuntu along side (dual boot) windows on my hp pavillion tx2500 tablet laptop.

However whenever I try to install off the ubuntu disc, I get to the installation part of it and after a few minuites of the bar bouncing back and forth my disc tray pops out and I`m prompts to remove the cd and press enter to continue.

After this the laptop powers off. After I turn the my laptop back on there is no ubuntu installed ](*,).

This exact same thing happens when I attempt to try ubuntu using the live boot thingy, seems like it loads, then kicks the disc out and prompts for enter and then shuts down :(

Any help suggestions etc would be greatly appreciated!

Did you burn the ISO files or did they mail them to you.

I downloaded and burned it using nero. I installed ubuntu on my desktop without a problem but for some reason the above happens when I attempt it on my laptop

It runs but not very well. Honestly, it's worthless. You can manage to boot it up fine through countless hacks. However, battery life will be horrible the digitizer, sound, microphone, etc. will not work without more lengthy hacks.

Wow.. I am sorry you feel this way. I know many users who like this laptop just fine. Plus I think Intrepid will fix a lot of the acpi issues (i.e. more battery life)
I suppose if you don't want to get it working though, you could always run a virtual machine or something (ugh!)
If you want to reconsider, this thread has a lot of info:
