Install CD for the new release of Kubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx
 
I have an install CD for Kubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala. The computer will boot from this and then allow me to install Kubuntu 9.10 onto a hard drive. I attempted to create this same type of install CD for Kubuntu
10.04 Lucid Lynx. I downloaded the .iso file and burned it on to a CD-R CD. The computer will not boot up from this new CD the same way that the
Kubuntu 9.10 one does, with the prompts that allow you to install it on
to a hard drive. All I get with new CD (Kubuntu 10.04) is "Insert Boot
Disk". I wonder what I am doing wrong? Anybody know how to get an
install CD for the new release of Kubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx?

Did you burn the .iso as data? Have a look at the disc in a file manager, if you see a single file, you haven't burnt the .iso correctly. See here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BurningIsoHowto for instructions on how to create the disc correctly.

Thank you for this information and link, {BB}Nexus{BB}. I will continue to investigate this and see what I come up with. I checked the Kubuntu 9.10 CD in the Dolphin file manager and there are all kinds of files and folders showing up with this CD. I then checked the new CD where I burned the Kubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx .iso file, and all I see is a single file with a CD image that says "kubuntu-10.04-desktop-i386.iso". Under Properties, it says "raw CD image" with a file size of 694.4 MB. I will now check that BurningIsoHowto link and see what I can do differently, using the K3b burner. I used K3b and GnomeBaker on the 2 CD's I have burned so far, but I must have burned a single image from the .iso file, not usable files. I will post my 3rd attempt on here.

From what I see, you haven't created the disc correctly. On the page that I linked to, choose the operating system that you are using to create the disc on for a step-by-step walk through.

Success - Burning Kubuntu 10.04 on to a CD
 
Success! Yes, that time it worked. I followed the steps as outlined in the BurningIsoHowto link that you sent, and using K3b, I got the .iso file on to a CD with usable files and folders, instead of one single file. Many thanks, {BBI}Nexus{BBI}. As you mentioned earlier, my first attempt was one single file burned on to the CD, so the .iso file was not burned correctly. I am new to burning CD's, so the reply to this thread was very helpful.
