2) Selection Screen: (Image 1.2)

This selection screen offers several choices:

  • Try Ubuntu without any change to your computer - This selection will boot the Live CD and completely run the OS only from that CD. A perfect choice for those that just want to check out Linux or Ubuntu and not completely destroy data on their system.
  • Install Ubuntu - This is the selection that I will be using. Warning: This will format the storage device you select later and remove all data from the system.
  • Check disk for defects - A good option if this is your first time running the Live CD to ensure that all data was burned properly.
  • Test memory - This test uses Memtest86+ v2.11 to check your memory. The check will take a long time (sometimes hours), depending on the system performance and amount of memory installed. If you desire to test your memory, you should download the latest version of Memtest86+ and boot off of that CD instead. The latest version as of this writing is 4.0 (September 22, 2009).
