I've recently booted Ubuntu ver. 13.04 onto my Acer Verticon. It runs great on my computer, and I want it to be my main operating system. The problem is, there isn't an option that lets me download it onto my computer's hard drive. What do I do?

I think the question is slightly confusing. You said > "I've recently booted Ubuntu ver. 13.04 onto my Acer Verticon."<BR> Did you mean you booted from a live CD or live USB disc? I am assuming that you have booted with live version > > "The problem is, there isn't an option that lets me download it onto my computer's hard drive. What do I do?"<BR> I assume you want to install Ubuntu 13.04 in your harddrive after booting from the live CD / USB and use it as your default OS. If yes, then on the left Task Bar, the second option says "Install Ubuntu" and you should click that. In case that is not –  migrator Sep 24 '13 at 3:46

After downloading a copy from ubuntu.com and burning the image to a disk (CD or USB), a box will pop up and ask you to either Try or Install Ubuntu. If that does not happen, I suggest downloading another copy and verifying md5sums to ensure a clean download.

From Ubuntu:

cd ~/Downloads/
md5sum *.iso

(You should change the *.iso to match the name of ISO you downloaded.)

To burn to removable media, use Startup Disk Creator (USB) or Braesero (CD).
