Ubuntu 12.04.1 desktop boot disk

view story

http://askubuntu.com – Any help is greatly appreciated: The problem - Im trying to install Ubuntu 12.04.1 x64 as a standalone OS. I cannot get the laptop to recognise the CD as a boot disk. The chipset is an Intel T5500 which is x64 architecture (have also tried the 32bit, and slowest burn possible). If i use a windows disk ( i have tried win7 32, 64 ultimate) i have no problems at all and windows loads and installs. I have also run Ubuntu side by side through the windows installer and it worked perfectly (now i just want a standalone install). Thanks for your time in reading this, Cheers Rhys (HowTos)
