Help needed with unknown Ubuntu installation problem
Help, I cannot burn an Ubuntu ISO file to DVD due to an unknown error message: "The selected disc image isn't valid". This file, ubuntu-14.04-desktop-i386.iso, was first downloaded on a Windows 7 laptop that I then copied to a USB flash drive. I then tried but failed to burn the ISO file to a DVD on an old Dell GX260 desktop PC, running Windows XP, that I am trying to requisition. The specs are: a 2 GHz CPU, 2 GB of RAM, and 100 GB of hard drive storage.
Although this desktop PC has several USB ports there is no option in the BIOS setup to install from a USB drive. The ISO file is 750 MB in size and, as an alternative, I burned it to a DVD on my laptop and then I tried to install it on the desktop PC using the DVD-ROM drive. However, I got an error message: "Invalid or corrupt kernel image". When I hit the enter key to force it, it displayed a list of options from which I chose "Install Ubuntu". But it would not respond; the installation simply hang. I am new to Linux and I have no idea what is causing this problem. This is my last chance to save this PC. Please help!

it may help to download the iso file using a BitTorrent client
such as utorrent.
go to the website you just visited is sure that there is a link to a torrent file.
BitTorrent downloads are more faster, safer due to checks that the client performs on every piece of the file being downloaded.
