    now I wilt gather your requested information..
    Please tell us what works, and what you want to do (that does not work)

    1. Does it work to boot Kubuntu and get a graphical desktop environment (the KDE desktop)?

    Does anything work in the desktop environment?

    Can you do anything in the terminal window (konsole)?

    It is not intended to log in as root in the Ubuntu flavours. Use sudo (for text programs) or gksudo (for GUI programs) instead. It reduces the risks to damage the system. For example

    Code:
    sudo parted -l
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
    sudo apt-get install htop
    # but
    gksudo gedit file.ext
    2. Please specify your computer

    - Brand name and model
    - CPU
    - RAM (size)
    - graphics chip/card (there may be issues with the driver for your graphics chip)
    - wifi chip/card (there may be issues with the driver for your wifi chip)

    It will be easier to understand and help, if you also reply to the other questions in my first post (post #2 in your thread).

    Re: cannot make changes to hard drive

    My computer:
    Motherboard: MSI MS 7302 (very 1.1)
    AMD Athlon (tm) II X4 630 processor
    Physical Memory: 4096MB (2x2 gb, but different units)
    Cache size: 2048KB
    No wifi, internet trough LAN
    Graphics card: AMD/ATI EAH850 Radeon HD 6850

    2. I have only installed kubuntu on the computer right now. So no dual-boot system. I was planning to only use Linux.

    3. I only need to use it for basic tasks. Like working with LibreOffice, music, maybe watching a movie.

    4. md5sum checked and fine this time.
    Used Rufus latest version to make bootable drive
    It runs totally fine when booted from installation drive.
    The installation finished without errors.

    Re: cannot make changes to hard drive

    KDE loads almost fine. The background is black.
    It shows up the taskbar, but loads a second bar over it, which I can remove.
    Some examples of what's working and what not:
    Firefox does not work, gives only an error. Konsole does work after showing an error. Dolphin does work after showing error, but it doesn't show any folders or files. Updates fail to install, it starts downloading but it can't make the changes in the system. Libreoffice does only show a small window and starts load, but that's all where it is getting.

    It fanally works. This time i used a sata hard disk instead of an IDE one. i installed it on the sata hard disk, and now everything runs fine without errors.

    Good catch and thanks for sharing your solution

    I did not expect problems due to an IDE hard disk drive.
