- How do I install Ubuntu? 2 answers
With Windows XP ending support next Tuesday, I was scrapped for time to find another replacement OS. I was told to install a Linux-based operating system as a replacement and I decided to try this version out. I didn't want to pay someone to install it for me, so I tried it on my own.
I downloaded "Ubuntu 12.04 LTS- 32-bit" (http://www.ubuntu.com/download/desktop) and waited about an hour for it to download the 730MB file. It was an image file (ISO file), so I used "Free ISO Burner" to attempt to burn it. After three failed attempts to burn the file on a 4.7GB disk, I extracted the file with Winrar. I left the room and came back to find that the Ubuntu menu was up. The 730MB OS took up ALL of the disk space for the 4.7 GB DVD for some reason. Anyways, I clicked "Demo and Full Installation," then clicked on "Help Me Boot From a Live CD," since the computer didn't boot from the DVD after four attempts. It looked like it was working, but it stopped about the quarter of the way with the message:
An error has occurred: Permission denied. For more information please see the log file: c:\docume~1\hp\locals~1\temp\wubi-12.04.4-rev280.log

And that's my problem so far. Do I erase everything that was written on that disk and try to burn it over? Do I need an additional program to run it?
