Ubuntu file corrupted?

Asked by Joshua Marchant on 2012-02-25

I just finished installing Ubuntu to duel-boot with my windows machine.

I installed Ubuntu on an external hard drive.

Whenever I try to boot Ubuntu it says that the file has been corrupted.

I prefer not to download it again, and I'm not excited to put Ubuntu on my C:.

Is there any way to repair the file and still be able to boot Ubuntu from my external hard drive?

Did you verify integrity of the downloaded .iso file? It's also recommended to burn the .iso slowly.

Well it sure felt slow! Haha!
How do I verify integrity of the download?
