installation disk doesn't autostart

Asked by debi on 2008-12-20

The installation disk doesn't autostart. I didn't burn the disk, I ordered it from On- Disk (or something). I had autostart turned off in windows but I can't get windows to load past the welcome screen. I put the ubuntu disk in then physically turn off the computer and turn it back on. Can I start the installation from a DOS command or something??? If I hit F something right when windows starts to boot it will get me to a DOS screen, right? Thanks.

If you enter BIOS and set CD/DVD ROM as 1st boot device, Ubuntu installation menu will automatically show when you start your computer.
Note: by booting from CD/DVD ROM, you'll need to install Ubuntu on separate partition and not like a normal Windows application.

Can you help with this problem?
