1. You actually never answered my question as to if the 8.10 installation would load
2. Is the computer on which you have now uninstalled the 8.10 a UBUNTU installation ONLY or is it a dual boot with one of the Windows systems
If it is UBUNTU only then I siuggest you format the hard drive first and then install the 11.10 from download from here
3. I cannot understand, what exactly you are trying to say here.
I am sorry about that, but could you try and explain again HOW you are installing the 11.10 - is it from a CD, a USB drive or what.
Here's my problem i got an computer with this [bleep] OPS. LINUX Ubuntu 8.10 i DL from my other computer 11.10 and tried to install on the 8.10
What I cannot actually understand is "i DL from my other computer 11.10 etc"
4. Error 22 means that the partition on which you are trying to install Ubuntu could not be recognised.
a. A failing hard drive
b. If a hard drive on which there is a recovery partition - that can cause it. http://ubuntuforums....d.php?t=1842330 http://ubuntuforums....d.php?t=1581099
Ubuntu 11.10 and indeed the 10.04LTS use a different version of GRUB to the 8.10, if grub is still on the drive that is the likely cause.
