    Hi and I have not used WUbi but I was speaking of booting off the live cd. If you have the system setup to boot from cd then you can just boot from the cd and run ubuntu as a test without installing.

    Heh, that's alright, your english is a helluva lot better than my spanish...

    It sort of sound like you may have the alternative install disk. The live cd should boot up a full operating system without having to install anything.
    Make sure you have the right disk. If it doesn't work, post back the specs on your system. Maybe someone can buy you a clue.

    Re: Please Help

    It is advised to use a descriptive topic title; that means use a topic title that gives some clue about the content in the thread itself...

    A generic topic title like "noob here" or "need help" does not help at all. As you may have notices, just about everyone posting in here has some kind of a problem or issue or question

    Just imagine what these forums would look like if everybody would just post "Help" or "Noob here". What do you think how many people will still look at such threads?

    Furthermore, for unrelated questions it's also adviced to open a seperate thread for each one, so that each problem can be addressed (and eventually marked as solved) individually.
