Can't install 12.04 off disc in 2 PCs
I have two laptop PCs and neither one will boot from CD.
Here is the background: I have old laptop with Sempron processor and 512MB RAM that I installed GNewSense on but now I have changed my mind and want Ubuntu. Installed fine that time with BIOS set to boot off CD drive first.
What I have done so far:
downloaded ubuntu 12.04, made a CD
tried the CD on old laptop, it gets stuck on white screen and the drive keeps making noise
made another CD and tried to boot again and same result
Tried to install in new laptop with Windows 7 and altered BIOS to boot first off CD, still no success
downloaded ubuntu again and this time to DVD because file size is 701MB
Both laptops still get stuck on white screen
I don't know what I am doing wrong. I have done this OK before with gNewsense. I really want to use Ubuntu because of its support and I can use google chrome and its support for flash
