I'm trying to install Ubuntu 12.04.1 x64 as a standalone OS.
I cannot get the laptop to recognize the CD as a boot disk. The Chipset is an Intel T5500 which is x64 architecture (have also tried the 32bit, and slowest burn possible).
If I use a Windows disk (I have tried Windows 7 32, 64 ultimate), I have no problems at all and Windows loads and installs.
I have also run Ubuntu side by side through the Windows installer and it worked perfectly (now I just want a standalone install).
Any help is greatly appreciated.
