Downloaded and burnt Ubuntu Linux 11.10 Installation on DVD. Have new IDE hard drive to install it on. Computer System Information: Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5200 @ 2.50GHz Speed 2500MHz Count 2 Installed & Useable size system memory: 2048MB Updated the Bios: Version: 0603 Build Date: 08/20/10

Every time I try and boot using the installation DVD I get the message: "(initramfs) Unable to find a medium containing a live file system". Tried changing many different options in BIOS. Seen a lot of people with a similar problem change the SATA configuration from IDE to AHCI but I don't have the option of choosing AHCI.

Will appreciate any help with this.

Had burnt and tried two DVDs but found place on internet where they'd suggested using UNetBootin to create a USB stick and tried and worked! Finally!
