I have a Dell Inspiron 4100 and keep getting the following error when attempting a Ubuntu trial on a CD.
udevd: timeout: killing '/sbin/blkid -o udev -p /dev/sda' 
Eventually, I am taken to a screen that says Ubuntu with five flashing dots underneath but it doesn't progress further.
Side notes: the hard drive in the laptop is failing, hence why I am trying to boot from CD. The cd was burned on a Mac. The computer is too old to boot from USB.
Thank you do much for your help!
