    Does it do the same running from the cd?

    What video card do you have?

    With nvidia it often helps to use the nomodeset boot parameter.

    You have more details how to use it when you try live mode and how to boot the first time with it after install here:

    But did it work correctly or not? You said live mode doesn't work either.

    And if you don't tell the cd to boot with nomodeset, it won't. You have to do it and that link has the procedure.

    During booting with the cd hit the Esc key on the very first purple screen you see. That should bring out the older type Main Menu.

    Hit F6 for advanced options. Select nomodeset.

    Go into the main menu and select Try Ubuntu.

    Does it load the live desktop correctly, with the unity bar and everything working?

    Then you have a bad cd or a bad iso file. The standard live cd always has the Try ubuntu option, that's the point of it.
