If so did the md5 or sha1 sums match? How did you record the ISO? What kind of hardware are you using and what version of ubuntu did you download? If you downloaded the AMD64/x86_64 version and are trying to run it on i386 hardware it is not going to work. Also did you verify the media after recording it? Please be as specific as possible. | Report abuse impreza February 17, 2007 5:48:05 AM What is the checksum? I used nero and clicked on burn images to disk. I used a cd-rw could this be problem? I downloaded both version and both have problems, the i386 version came up with some other error before it starts to load.

If the md5sum matches then use ISORecorder http://isorecorder.alexfeinman.com/download/ISORecorder... to burn the ISO to a regular CD-R ( a CD-RW may cause problems ) 4. if everything works boot and enjoy :-D Quote:What is the checksum?
