Linux Kubuntu installation freezes


I have two kubuntu discs 8.04, and 9.04 and they both freeze during the installation and I can't install windows cause for some reason windows always does a boot loop when i install it and try to run it. is it something in the bios or something? any ideas??

What do you mean by freezing?
When does this happen?
Error messages
What system are you using?
Did you burn the disk yourself?
Did you verified the downloads? (md5sum)

A good start would be to know the hardware you are using.
You could use a live cd, and see what hardware is used.
