Download | Ubuntu (http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download)

This way..

well do u have it on a CD and booting with that? i have it on my other pc but havent used it for a while..

Same way I did it with my laptop a while back, didn't have any issues. Set up as a dual boot using the installer from that site and running it as a program.

Probably not alot of help I imagine, sorry dude.

No just downloading like a regular file and running it. It gets about 70% done and then that message pops up

is it an .iso file? thats not something you can run

01-13-2011, 08:49 PM
I haven't done it yet, but I've seen it done like above, dl it then burn to a cd then run the cd and it sets up a partition to dual boot

like this

Well it gives the option to run on PC or burn on disc. I chose to run it. I have Ubuntu files that were downloaded before the error and I have to uninstall them before I proceed again.

yea if its an iso file burn it to a DVD then boot off of that

Alright, I'll have to try the CD way then. Seems like a few other programs I have are having permission issues. I can't open certain pics in my gallery. So I have to find that error. In the mean time I'll try the disc.

Sweet thanks for the tips guys. I'll report back later, maybe tomorrow, if I get it going on the disc.
