When I try to use a live CD, My Dell XPS 14z will not read the disk and skips to booting windows, I've had previous questions discussing this but everything I have tried never works.
I'm almost absolutely sure that I am not burning the CD wrong, because windows recognizes it as a Ubuntu install disc. But when I boot from CD drive it never reads the CD!
I used to have a wubi installation, but I uninstalled it, when I try to reinstall it I get an error. I forgot what it is but i will post it later in a comment. I've tried to use the boot CD helper (whatever it's called) But I get an error there too, again I'll post it in the comments. Also, I have had absolutely no problem in the past installing Ubuntu on other computers.
The first thing I did when I tried to install ubuntu is to make sure the priority was set to boot from cd drive. so that isn't the problem.
Could windows be interfering with the installation of Ubuntu? Should I do a clean install of windows then try Ubuntu?
