I am attempting to install Ubuntu 12.04 on what used to run Windows XP. The original OS is all but dead, so I am booting off of a CD created from the ISO download. Depending on the time, I either fail to reach the menu allowing to install Ubuntu, or I select the install Ubuntu option. Regardless of this, every time I reach the Ubuntu 12.04 screen with 4 dots. When I use the Shift+F6 shortcut, I receive the following error:
stdin: I/O error stdin: I/O error unable to open '/dev/zram0'
I have never worked with any sort of Linux before, so I'm quite clueless as to what this means, or how to work around it. Is there something I'm missing, or is it a hardware issue?
