Hi Everyone, I have been trying my darn hard to get this OS to install on my PC but so far its been "mission impossible". Here are the steps I have taken so far (1) Cut CD and USB from ISO file. Checked to make sure all files in place (2) Made sure BIOS setting for boot order set to CDROM or USB first. Ubuntu would not load in either case. Instead it simply started Windows 8. (3) Used Wubi from within Windows to install CD boot helper. Again this failed and presented the following error message: "could not retrieve the required installation files, etc". My system is a HP Envy 15 with Windows 8 installed. This is really undermining my confidence as I'm normally good with IT matters even though I'm not an expert. Any suggestions as I'm out of ideas here.
