          Help! I can't even get my old Dell Latitude D820 to read the DVD. I have installed a new SSD and upgraded to 4GB of memory. I got Precise Puppy to run, but I can't get kubuntu 14.10 DVD to load correctly. Tried with USB 4GB flash drive, and was told that there was no bootable partition. I copied the OS directly from the DVD. Checked the download hash, and all was good. I am really sick & tired of microsoft's bs. I really need this to work. I want to learn and now have the time, since I am now retired. Thanks!

            Please start a new thread for this, it is off topic for this thread, and you will get more eyes on it in a more relevant section

            But for starters, have you read this:

            and for making a bootable flash drive:

            You have to "burn" the image in a special way, even on a usb stick
