No its not a problem on your side.... I believe what is happening is that the archive http:// site has too many connections open. From what I recall in a similar situation, another mirror site would be selected to try to complete the download depending on settings.

The problem is probably (my guess) that you did not download the correct file. But let's do this step by step. Don't worry, it's not as much as it looks like. Note that I'm using the german translation and translated them myself back to english to give the following instructions: Installing unetbootin (or other applications) in lubuntu. Click on the start ...

Im not familiar with Lubuntu but it seems very similar to Ubuntu and you say you double click it as if its a windows executable. Just in case that is the case, know that there are no executables in Linux and you need to go into the terminal and enter chmod +x /path/to/file.run to run .run files. Edit: In response to your last comment Im not sure what the ...

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86-64 "x86-64 (also known as x64, x86_64 and AMD64) is the 64-bit version of the x86 instruction set" AMD64 doesn't imply the iso is for AMD cpus but rather for 64-bit computers. If your computer is 64-bit then this is the correct iso to use. If your computer is 32-bit then you will need to choose the 32-bit option when ...

Speed When the ISO that want to download has been released a couple of days ago there will be a bunch of people trying to get it from the official server. That is when it's recommended to use a torrent channel, because you're not relaying in only one server your download will be faster than the official server.

The URL is part of the inner workings of the YouTube system software. It is generated by one system component, and used by another - not intended to be used anywhere else. You need to know how to find this ...

Torrents are a great way to go if you are on a home network and the Internet Service Provider (ISP) does not throttle the service when torrent clients are running (My parents had a wireless ISP that did this; most DSL or Cable services will not). Some Linux/UNIX distro maintainers (I.e. Arch Linux) actually recommend that you download via torrent if ...

Try using a software for burning images. I personally used Daemon Tools Pro to burn the ISO downloaded onto my USB stick. Some people even have no problem only copying the files from the ISO to the USB Stick. Also when pressing the F12 when asked to, make sure you use Fat32 formatted USB stick. In case you don't. You can change it simply through "My ...

Coming from Windows shouldn't be a problem for installing an OS. This installation is no different than installing a Windows ISO OS. It's exactly the same. Just burn the ISO to a disk, boot to it, and follow the prompts. The installation questions in Ubuntu should even be easier. It basically asks for a user name and password, perform the installation ...
