    Demo does not load


    Hey!
    I ordered a free Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop CD and followed the instructions(put it in the dvd rom and restarted my laptop).
    All goes very well up to one point when it's loading, but there's no progress.
    I left it so for about an hour while I went out to see if it would load, but when I got home the screen was the same(even the loading animation stopped).
    I have Windows 7 installed and I want to install Ubuntu on another partition.

    Any help?

    Hello and welcome!

    Don't know if it will help, but you could try disabling acpi then try installing again. Another option you could try is the "alternate cd" text-only installer.

    disabling acpi didn't work...could you tell me what text-only installer consists of?

    [EDIT]: I found information on how to do an "Alternate CD" install, but I don't have the time right now. I will try to install inside windows, but if it will work, it's only temporary, since I want to install it properly.
