I am trying desperately to place Ubuntu on four types of machines. SO far I cannot install to even one of them. My three machines are a Mac Desktop running OS x , with a 2.6 Intel core 2 duo processor. An Acer laptop running windows 8 its serial is Acer Aspire 5735-4774, a powerbook g4 17" mac, and finally I have a asus Tf300 laptop I would like to try Ubuntu in as well.
I have been able to easily fragment disk drives for space for the installation, Im able to get into the boot menu to run usb or off cd for all the machines. I have used retfit and unetbootin for the mac, and unetbootin for pc.
My biggest problem I believe is finding a non corrupted .iso file from UBUNTU. I have downloaded 12.04 and 13004 several times and last night I even tried the bit torrent way. I have even tried using the feature of Unebootin to do so. NO success so far.
I am trying to get an .iso file to create a live cd (boot disk) so I can try UBUNTU.
Any tips ? Im about to walk away. these downloads take 1 1/2 hour and its so frustrating when they are corrupted.
thank you in advance --david
