Ubuntu is distributed on one type of image described below.
The combined install/live DVD allows you either to install Ubuntu
permanently on a computer, or (by entering 'live' at the boot prompt) to try
Ubuntu without changing your computer at all.
There are two images available, each for a different type of computer:
- PC (Intel x86) install/live DVD
- For almost all PCs. This includes most machines with Intel/AMD/etc type
processors and almost all computers that run Microsoft Windows, as well as
newer Apple Macintosh systems based on Intel processors. Choose this if you
are at all unsure.
- 64-bit PC (AMD64) install/live DVD
- Choose this to take full advantage of computers based on the AMD64 or EM64T
architecture (e.g., Athlon64, Opteron, EM64T Xeon, Core 2). If you have
a non-64-bit processor made by AMD, or if you need full support for 32-bit
code, use the Intel x86 images instead.
A full list of available files, including BitTorrent files,
can be found below.
If you need help burning these images to disk, see the
CD Burning Guide or the
USB Image Writing Guide.
