    Hi

    Check the md5sum of the download. Maybe it got corrupted.

    Check against these

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuHashes

    Kind regards

    Thanks for responding, but i've done this, and it's all ok...

    The thing is that i'm trying to use it in an old notebook... and it does't respond, even if i try to try it...
    I downloaded the Xubuntu and it does the same thing...

    I don't know what to do anymore...

    You could try burning the install disk at a lower speed or installing from a USB flash drive.

    Hi

    Is the CD player failing? I have come across messages like this when a CD Rom was failing.

    Kind regards

    I am having a similar issue with my remastered iso

    I cannot boot the iso from within a virtual machine to test my remaster.

    however when i copy the iso to my liveUSB running multiboot, then I dont have this issue... strange.

    Do you think it could be to do with the fact my remastered iso is about 1.7GB?

    edit - actually it could be to do with uck requiring gfxboot?

    The only thing i could do... is to install kubuntu from the alternate version and it work... now i will try to do it with the ubuntu alternate...
    I will download the ubuntu alternate cd and i will tell you what happend...

    I Gotta say that the machine is an old notebook... with 239 mb of ram... so maybe that was why the freaking cd... didn't work... i don't know...
