I have downloaded your DVD image. I have burnt it on a regular dvd.

But it has been loading for 20 minutes already. I've installed Ubuntu on 5 computers at least, and this is the first time I face this problem.

The probable cause of this problem is that I was using Windows 8 to burn the image. If that's the problem, I'il just burn the image again at low speed using cdburner xp.

Thanks, Shaun.

Test your media for errors on boot, before loading the installation. It seems to be a read error.
