    The authentication failure is an oddity because the LiveCD uses no credentials; username, password, etc, so this shouldn't be happening. But seems to in this situation with a Mac.

    Also, be sure to check the disk for errors. Torrent is the best, quickest, safest way to get the ISO. Good luck.
    Didn't work
    I'll try the alternate method, it boots from the USB the same way the original installation?


    EDIT: It worked!! With the alternate installator, now I have Ubuntu on the PC! Thank you all!!
    How can I mark the post as [solved]?

    Alternate install exactly the same except text-based install rather than disco graphics ...
