Hello,

I downloaded ubuntu 12.04 from ubuntu.com, exctracted the iso file and wrote everything to a CD with windows 7. The problem is that when I try to boot from a CD, it doesn't find ubuntu in it. I tried it on two diferent PCs. So the questions are:
1. Can I fix it somehow?
2. If not then mabey using some kind of program to burn ISO file to a CD would help, and not Windows burner?
3. Can you recomend free program for it? One time use.

Please don't ask why I want Linux based OS. Thank you.

Did you make sure to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the first boot device is your optical drive?

Did you verify the integrity of the disc that you used to make sure that Ubuntu was written on it correctly? Have you also tried placing the OS on a USB thumb drive?

Ok I solved the problem, you can't use windows 7 build in function to burn the disc. I used free sofware from the web and ubuntu booted up. I used freeISOburner.
