Are internet installations possible with Ubuntu?

I copied ubuntu from its original cd version..

They way i did it was wrong..i copied the original cd to a folder in harddisk and burned it using nero to other cd..

And the cd doesnt boots by itself.

And later i converted all into an iso img and wrote it to another cd after i red a blog..

there must be some bootable file missing from the cd i guess..

and i also tried the flash drive installation..nothing makes any difference..

Its been 2 weeks..and im so tired of doing it..

am i hopeless??

without buying an ubuntu disk can i make this work?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You never need to buy an Ubuntu disk. While they are burnt at the right speed with the correct files, you shouldn't need to worry about that. Rather, just head on over to the download page on Ubuntu's site and download an ISO and burn it to a disk...they have guides even for if you need help.

im really sorry my internet connection is speed is really there are no other options? – super noob Mar 18 '12 at 17:09
I feel your pain about the connection speed. I would say at this rate, there is no other option because if the boot files are missing from the disc image, there are more files missing too. If you can, I would try to find a way to find someone who can download an ISO for you or try to find somewhere to download it if you have a laptop. You may have to purchase a disk at this point, unfortunately. I'm sorry I couldn't be much help – Ryan McClure Mar 18 '12 at 17:12

My email address is on my profile...I'd rather not type it out here, but it's there if you need it. And don't worry, I don't know much about Ubuntu myself. Just the basic things that keep my machine in one piece :) Feel free to email me any time you need, I'm always here to help. – Ryan McClure Mar 18 '12 at 17:32
