Steps to Install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Precise Pangolin) from CD along side Windows7

Select and download one of the images :

  • Burn a Desktop installation CD

Burning a desktop CD allows you to try Ubuntu without changing your computer at all, and at your option to install it permanently later. The pre-requisite for this option is  at least 384MiB of RAM to install from this CD.

  • Burn a Server installation CD

Burning a server install CD allows you to install Ubuntu permanently on a computer for use as a server. But the catch is it will not install a graphical user interface.

They all offer two images available, each for a different type of computer:

  • PC (Intel x86)
  • 64-bit PC (AMD64)
