Ubuntu Live CD isn’t booting

livecdUbuntuubuntu 12.04

I'm trying to boot an Ubuntu Live CD on Intel laptop. I wrote the 12.04 LTS (64 bits) bootable image from the official site to DVD, but it's not booting.

What steps am I performing wrong?

Enter UEFI setup.

  • Disable CSM
  • Enable Legacy boot (or something that sounds similar)
  • Make sure that your optical drive's boot priority is higher than hard drive's.

Note that disabling CSM will prevent already installed systems from booting.
