I downloaded the iso image and on my IMac, I burnt it to a DVD, but my IMAC claimed that DVD is not readable, I put the same DVD on a windoes machine and it shows the contents of DVD fine. Then I put back the DVD on my IMAC and restart and once I see the black screen, where Ubuntu should load and start installation, nothing happens, the black screen stays forever. Any ideas how I can install ubuntu on my Imac using DVD?
