I recently downloaded ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-amd64 from http://ubuntu.com.

I read the full installation instructions, and also read How to burn a DVD on Windows and How to create a bootable USB stick on Windows. I made both a DVD and a Ubuntu live USB.

I tried installing Ubuntu in two different ways:

  • I tried to install Ubuntu when my laptop was connected to the internet: It downloaded some packages during the installation. After the installation was finished, I couldn't boot to Ubuntu.

  • I tried to install Ubuntu when my laptop was NOT connected to the internet: An error message occurred when installing. The message was about "GRUB" and "booting".

My laptop is an Asus K46CB with a Core i7 processor.

Where did you see the "Check For defects : found 3 problems" message? It wasn't mentioned in your question besides the title. –  minerz029 Nov 16 '13 at 7:46
    
@karel wifi, WiFi or Wi-Fi? so many choices, only some of which are correct. –  minerz029 Nov 16 '13 at 7:59
    
@minerz029 I searched Google for wifi and got 173,000,000 results and anyway I like it better than trademark crap like Wi-Fi. I don't spell Intel Core i5 like Intel® Core™ i5 either. –  karel Nov 16 '13 at 8:20
