Hi I am very new to Ubuntu and but i want it.

I downloaded Ubuntu Iso file from the site and burnt the image to a Dvd. I boot my Windows 7 laptop using the dvd, the Screen shows all the options and then when i select "Install Ubuntu along with Windows 7" , it takes a while and then the Dvd gets ejected "Eject the media and Press Enter " and the system reboots into windows 7.

Can any one help me to sort this out. Note : I use a USB dongle for Internet and dont have any wifi around. So there is no internet connectivity during installation. Pls find below my Laptop configuration.

Perhaps the DVD that you burned did not burn correctly, or the ISO file you downloaded is corrupted.

I suggest you make a bootable USB disk with Ubnutu using the following link and try to install from it

Tell us how it goes.
