Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I tried to install Ubuntu: I loaded it on CD drive and clicked onto "Install Ubuntu" (not "Try Ubuntu"). Then in the window ("Preparing to install Ubuntu") I clicked onto "Continue", then in the next window I chose "wireless" and clicked "Continue".

As installation type I chose "Install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7". After that it showed "Restart to Continue".

When I clicked on "Restart and Continue" a black screen like a command prompt appeared and displayed something like:

  • checking battery state
  • checking for running unattended-upgrades: speech-dispatcher disable; edit /etc/default/speech-dispatcher
  • asking all remaining processes to terminate

Finally after a few seconds the message "Please remove installation media and close the tray (if any) then press enter" appears.

My PC is an ASUS K43SJ core i5.

I didn't follow any guidance because my experience isn't enough in Linux.

And did you reboot then again? What happened? I again recommend to follow this guide: ubuntu.com/download/help/install-ubuntu-with-windows. –  Jakob May 15 '12 at 10:01
    
That sounds like it went well, then. Reboot. You should now have Ubuntu installed. –  Dymatic May 15 '12 at 10:08
    
did You remove the CD? –  Misery May 15 '12 at 10:47
    
What happened when you removed the CD and pressed Enter? –  Mitch May 15 '12 at 10:50

Try to get in Windows booting options (in msconfig) and set the time that other systems are displayed while booting to lets say 20 seconds. Does that help?
