I'm trying to install ubuntu on a desktop with a clean hard drive. I went to http://www.ubuntu.com/ -> http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop -> http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop -> http://www.ubuntu.com/download/deskt...p&status=zeroc and the resulting DL is this file on my hard drive: ubuntu-12.04.2-desktop-i386.iso
I then use InfraRecorder to brun the image to a DVD-RW. The DVD that has these folders:
.disk boot casper dists install isolinux pics pool pressed
and these files:
autorun.inf md5sum.txt README.diskdefines wubi.exe
Seems to me this is a wubi install and requires an OS on the target desktop. When I insert the DVD into the target desktop and after powering up and posting, it just sits there with a blank screen and the cursor in the upper left hand corner.
And yes, I've been in BIOS and my drives are in the proper boot priority. I also tried burning the imake with ImgBurn, which I've used in the past to burn various Windows install DVDs, including slipstreaming SPs, ACHI & RAID drivers.
Any help is appreciated.
