I've downloaded ubuntu server 4 times now and burnt it over 10 times, trying to get it to work on an older machine. The burn goes through, and when the test phase hits there is always an error that the disc track sectors are less than the image file sectors.
I've been using Imgburn on two different laptops(Asus G73sx and an older Asus laptop) and on a desktop to burn it with no luck. I've downloaded from the AARnet mirror and iinet mirrors with no noticeable difference. I've tried the desktop version as well, with the same error.
When trying to use the discs, it runs the syslinux bootloader but then nothing happens, even after 10 minutes.
On a lark, I just downloaded Debian and burnt that, and it worked without a hitch. This to me proves the burner and software I'm using are functional, and the optical drive in my new file server works properly. I've set it up as a basic fileserver to confirm that the hardware seems fine.
Also, I've used LiLi usb creator to unload the images onto a usb stick, and that didn't work either...
I'd really rather use ubuntu for this project, but it is increasingly looking like I'll have to use Debian as I just can't get -any- ubuntu image to work, despite trying a variety of methods.
Can someone please advise anything else I can do?
Burning at half speed worked.
