First we download the Ubuntu installation CD (the Desktop CD). The downloaded file will be an ISO image that we burn on a disk to proceed with the installation. All disc-burning programs can do this.
You need to boot your computer from the CD. Restart your computer after inserting the disk to the burned disc into the drive. At startup, a screen appears that gives us the option to select our language. Once you have done us the welcome screen. Select the choice in this screen that if we want to run the Ubuntu environment running from the CD-Rom or if we want to make the installation from the disk.
If we choose the first option then after a few minutes, depending on your computer, the graphical desktop of Ubuntu will be loaded in RAM and will appear on your screen. You can navigate menus or test applications to see a small sample of what Ubuntu can do without yet having anything installed on your system. Note that after installation, it is much faster than when run virtually. To start the installation you must double-click the mouse on the icon given below. If in the previous step we choose the second option the you will directly go to the installation process.
