I am new to Ubuntu. I am trying to install on a Panasonic Toughbook CF-28. It's quite old but runs ok (slow by today's standards), but I just use it to run some navigation software on my boat.
It has a USB port but no CD drive and the BIOS will not let me boot from the USB port. I have tried copying Ubuntu 12.04 to the hard drive, but when attempting to open I get a windows message asking which program I want to open with. I have tried downloading the Windows Installer but it also won't open.
The computer is running Windows XP professional. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
