If you have Windows installed, You can directly boot (and install) from iso without burning it to DVD/CD/USB drive using EasyBCD.


In detail, if you want to install the ubuntu without flash drive and all other you have tried then you can also install it from network.

If your system is older and The network installer helps you install ubuntu in graphical form See the link here


I have used Plop boot manager many times for installing different Linux Distros (including Ubuntu). It allows me to boot a machine for a device that is not supported by the bios. Very useful on machines that can not boot from USB.
