When I try to install the 64bit version of 12.04 through a Live CD, all that happens is that the disk spins, and I get the windows boot screen.
I've set my BIOS to boot from a CD first, before booting from the hard drive, so the CD should work, but it just skips to windows.
Ive tried everything here, and nothing from it helped. Could something in my BIOS be interfering with the installation?
I am using a Dell XPS 14z
I would prefer not to use the 32bit version of Ubuntu because I want it to be at its full potential.
I've tried downloading and burning to CD's multiple times to ensure that it's not corrupted. would you suggest one of these?
- Try to install an older version, like 11.10 64bit, and upgrading it?
- Installing with a USB or external drive?
It's alright now, I used an External hard drive to install ubuntu and I also have 64 bit. Thanks for the input!
