If it is getting past the boot and the meter goes across the screen and then it goes black, then it could be a video card problem. I have seen the live cd do that but work fine after installing. Try hitting F4 and selecting "safe mode" at the boot time, right after you select the language.

First, go into bios and make sure you select boot from cd derive first.

If that doesn't work, then try burning another cd. Burn with a lower speed, and try a different type of blank disc. Sometimes the disc brand can cause problems.

This will give instructiosn on how to load and install from said USB.

You will need:

After you've made your USB stick, when booting up the computer you wish to install ubuntu on be sure you have the USB stick inserted when powering it on. When the start screen comes up press ESC to enter the BIOS or boot order. Select the USB stick from within the BIOS boot order menu, or the USB stick from the boot options menu.

Load ubuntu, install, enjoy.

Good day, i have a laptop that i purchased with Ubuntu 12.04 pre-installed i now wish to change to win 8.1 but i dont know how to do it please assist, ive tried everything i could think of


My Suggestion would be to stick with Ubuntu. Windows 8.1 will be much slower on the same computer.

However, if you do really need Windows, my suggestion would be do run it under Ubuntu using VirtualBox (free) and then install the Extension pack which you can download from the Tools menu, when you have your OS running. This then gives you full screen. For your communications, make sure that your network adapter has been set to 'Bridged'

How did you install Ubuntu? Using a Live CD I presume. If you were able to boot from the CD-Rom and run the Linux installation either as a demo or a physical installation then the CD-Rom drive is working. It should be able to boot from a Windows recovery CD and run the Windows installation program. There is no problem with the drivers because Ubuntu has its own drivers. Maybe the firmware of the Drive, but I doubt it. Since your hard drive is brand new (scrubbed) you have nothing to lose by physically installing Ubuntu and playing with it to verify the hardware and possibly to update the firmware of the CD-Rom drive. When choosing the Ubuntu distribution do not use one with a version number higher than 12.04 LTS. I could not install version 12.10 on an old tablet PC for some hardware reason: The Ubuntu part was not working but KDE was fine.
When installing Ubuntu install grub on the C: drive. It will be wiped anyway when you reinstall Windows.
Good Luck.

I have installed ubuntu on my lenovo laptop


Have you changed the boot order ?
Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or the F2 key Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS the using arrow key scroll down to advanced bios features press enter change your first boot device to cd,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart note this will erase you operating system you will have to have an operating system disk to load it onto you hard drive or create a partition to load another operating system (note after you have loaded the operating system you should go back and change the first boot device to your failsafe or optimized defaults) after windows has loaded your computer will automatically restart it might restart 2 times one to finish the installation the next will be because the operating system is loaded and will boot from your cd during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart otherwise it will keep booting from the cd /dvd drive

Did you try booting from the Ubuntu cd and ran the desktop live cd demo ? That will bypass the windows drivers and uses ubuntu stuff only so if that worked your instal should have worked. It sounds like it doesn't like your video card as a guess.

I've never had that problem in a install but I would bet they have on the ubuntu support forum.

http://ubuntuforums.org/

I think you will be able to get your answer there. If you can't find it using the search ( I tried. didn't) then post it and give a bit more info such as ubuntu version, and so on. Lots of good help there. Once you get it running you will be quite happy with it.

Ubuntu 8.10 install


Just insert the CD in your hard drive and wait for the splash screen, but if it does not appear, open up explorer and go to your CD drive folder and find autorun. Doubleclick on that so the splash screen appears. It has the choices and options for installation. Another way is to go to your BIOS and make your PC boot to your CD drive, then insert CD in drive and restart. It will come up with the Ubuntu live installation.

I want to format scsi drives and configure raid0


You can either do this in the BIOS or (easier) just run a Linux installer (such as Ubuntu) and it will offer to do it for you when it sees Windows-formatted partitions.
