I want to install Xubuntu on a low end Laptop, and have downloaded and burned the .iso to a Disk.

When I attempted to boot it, it showed me a blue screen with Xubuntu written in the center and a spinning wheel beneath.

However, it's been stuck at this for 3 hours now. Here are the specs of my computer.

What am I doing wrong? Is my Laptop too slow? Has anyone experienced similar problems?
