Default Help

I have a problem, It is probably very simple..

I downloaded Ubuntu and burned it to a disc, When I boot up I get to the
'Boot from Disc: '
And my boot-up freezes until I eject the cd, What have I done wrong?

Well, when you downloaded the ISO, did you burn it to a disc, or use something like Nero and use the Burn ISO Image feature?

You have to burn the image ISO, not the file itself.

It's possible you got a bad ISO file. Try downloading from another source, and then burn it, see what happens.

Yeah, sounds like either a bad burn or you didn't burn as an ISO.

If you eject and reinsert, does it freeze again?

Probably bad iso. Download again, and try the burning as cd image again, and perhaps use a different type of CD, make sure there is enough room on it (like 700MB).
