KUBUNTU 11.10 installation


I downloaded KUBUNTU 11.10 64 bit and created DVD. My Machine is an HP running Windows 7 64 bit.
I tried many times to install also KUBUNTU but the process stops(?) with no notice after having loaded about 56 packages (?).
Any advice?. Thanks

1. Run disk verify,
2. Do a google search for hardware compatibility.
2b. use software workarounds if necessary for installer

I tried all methods above suggested. In the end I managed to install using wubi running on windows 7. Now I have a two phase menu. First choice between Win and Ubuntu and next between Ubuntu and Kubuntu 11.10
