Download 11.04 Ubuntu attempted to burn ISO to disk. Didn't work. Clean-now dead disk. I am a real novice. Bug is me doing something wrong. Will attempt to download Ubuntu 11.04 from School SIte. So Bug is likely me trying to learn how to work OOS .

Asked by Susan G Palm on 2011-09-24

Yes I am relatively sure it is me. A friend at school burned me a disc. But it was unsupported to I got a prompt to update/grade to Ubuntu 11.4. It downloaded but it did not seem to work. The program is running parallel to Win07 and office 2010. I am not sure about what to do. Delete the download? I did not burn a 11.04 copy to a disc-only wrote one empty file. Ruined disk complete waste of time and money.
 I found a download site for it in the Linux resource center from school I will download that. Will that overwrite what I have or not. Do I delete this program and start over??!!

Looking for best option. I am on my own with this stuff as this is an online course could use a tutor for this to pass Linux+ Certification. That is another thing. I have a set of numbers or a product key to download an exam practice or simulator but cannot download that either. I am wasting a lot of time trying to figure this out on my own. So there will be some issues.

Thanks,

Susan g Palm

Thanks for this report. This seems likely to be an issue with how you have downloaded the image and burned the CD, rather than a bug. Hence converting to a question.

Hi Susan,

I suggest you go to the following site to download the iso image.
http://www.ubuntu.com/download
Once you have done that follow the instructions on how to test that the download is complete and then install it.

Thanks

The site Paul suggested is very good, but I haven't found an important step you must do, MD5sum. Check these sites
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Md5sum
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HowToMD5SUM
Note one line of instructions, states, burn as slow as possible.
It is also a good idea to, check disk and check ram. You will see how, if you choose Try Ununtu.

Can you help with this problem?
