Is there an ISO file with less than 700 MB?
I cannot put the ISO file 'ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop-i386' with 707 MB on CD having only 700 MB. I tried to make a bootable DVD but when booting PC says:

EDD: Error 8000 reading sector 50

(and then 51,52,53 etc) and then boot failed ...


Try to burn with another CD but do not use CD-RW (it might be a faulty burned disc).

You can find CD releases for 12.04 here: http://releases.ubuntu.com/precise/ But you do need an 80 minutes CD (those are a bit over 700M).

Oh and as of 12.10 a CD is no longer an option.


You can try to install the 11.10 an older version of Ubuntu (695MB), and then update & upgrade & dist-upgrade the system.
