How To Boot Live Ubuntu 11.04

In order to be able to boot from the Ubuntu CD/DVD or USB, your system must be configured to use "boot from CD or USB" option. Let's do it the easy way. Put the CD/DVD in your drive, or plug in the Live USB, and restart the PC. If the PC boots from the new Ubuntu, everything is fine and we can move ahead to the next step. If not, we need to change settings so that your PC can boot from the CD/DVD or USB.
If you know how to change Boot Device Priority, please go ahead and make changes from BIOS. If, you don't know how to do it, you either need someone who can help you on this or you follow these instructions here

How To Check
In order to find if your PC supports USB boot or not, you have to enter the BIOS set-up to find it.

Enter BIOS
Restart your PC and as it is about to restart start hitting either of these keys -- DEL, Esc, F2, F12. Or you can check with your PC vendor that which key is used to enter BIOS settings. There are hundreds of PC models and it is beyond the scope of this manual to provide support for each model. I think any of these keys will work with your PC.

Once you are in the BIOS setting. It is a black screen with white text. Here your mouse will not work, you will have to use keyboard. Use arrow keys to go to the Boot Menu (you can see it on one of the tabs). Under Boot Menu look for Boot Device Priority or Boot Device Option. There if you see USB as the available option that means your PC supports booting from USB.

In order to set your PC to be able to boot from USB and CD/DVD. Please use the arrow keys to set in this order that
First --> USB (if available otherwise CD/DVD will be the first and HDD will be the second)
Second --> CD/DVD
Third --> Hard drive
Once you have set the boot priority in this order hit F10 and select Yes to save these settings. Now, when your PC will be able to boot from USB or CD/DVD.
Now, restart your systen. It will boot from the CD/DVD or USB as you configured in the BIOS settings.
