    Life ubuntu mate 20.04

    I have burned the new DVD for linux for education mate edition based on ubuntu 20.04 twice

    https://discourse.ubuntu.com/t/li-f-...-out-now/17077

    from here

    https://sourceforge.net/projects/cyb...se_mirror=svwh

    I can't get it to boot or run a live environment. Since I am running xubuntu 20.04 OK what could be the problem? I want to set up several computers for a non profit childrens science group running life. It comes up sometime with the life splash screen and sometimes just won't boot from the DVD at all. Xubuntu 20.04 also boots Ok from DVD live or to install. Alternatively is there a way to install the life from within xubuntu then deleting the xubuntu?

    How have you burned the DVD and why aren't you using an USB stick? Much faster and reusable.

    Thread moved to Ubuntu/Debian BASED for a more appropriate fit.

    It is an ancient acer aspire and doesn't allow booting from USB

    So, how did you burn the DVD?

    And if so ancient that it can't boot from USB, are you sure it's 64-bit?
