I can't seem to get ubuntu installed on my Lenovo Thinkpad x200

http://askubuntu.com – I acquired a thinkpad x200 recently and wanted to install Ubuntu on it so I could learn the program with this laptop. Unfortunately, every time I try to install it, it just runs code on the prompt screen but never actually begins installation. I consulted the help menu on the startup screen and the only advice I got was that some thinkpad computers require special startup commands, however, when I type the install command in the boot prompt it says the kernel is not recognized. Any help would be great. (HowTos)
