I downloaded Ubuntu 11.04, and whenever I try to install it I get an error. I tried this from Windows, and from CD too!

First it shows a screen with lots of colorful dots. A table comes up with data and PROG.

Then the error shows:

Not syncing - too many boot vars in 'C', swapper not tainted 2.6.38, panic , serial console, start_kernel +x2700x366, i386_start_kernel+0xc0/0xc0

Have you checked the CD for errors? Once the CD is booted and you see an accesibility icon, press any key to get to the menu. – Lekensteyn Jul 2 '11 at 7:26
@user825312, are you still able to boot the LiveCD session itself normally? Also, when you say you tried installing from Windows, you mean you tried using the Wubi installer, correct? – Christopher Kyle Horton Jul 2 '11 at 17:25

I had the same problem but after trying couple of times it suddenly works. 11.04 has some bugs, sometimes it needs to set noinsmod during live-cd. ok Try to install in different partition. or use 10.04 or 10.10 until 11.10 come.
