I downloaded ubuntu 12.04 LTS from this site, and I am trying to follow the instructions about how to burn the iso image to DVD according to this page but I don't see the image on desktop as shown on the first picture on that page. What am I doing wrong? I am on Windows 7.

    You probably downloaded it to a different folder. You should try searching for ubuntu-12.04.3-desktop in Start Menu search. – nc4pk Oct 19 '13 at 1:25

Normally, your download is in your Downloads-folder.

  • Path: C:\Users\yourUsername\Downloads

If the iso-file isn't there, search in the search-bar the file.

  1. Click on the Windows-Button on the lower-left.
  2. Now write in the search-field for ubuntu.
  3. Now you should see the file.
  4. Rightclick on it and open the path.

Then, you can follow these easy steps:

  1. Insert a recordable CD, DVD, or Blu‑ray Disc into your disc burner.

  2. Open Computer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then clicking Computer.

  3. In Windows Explorer, find the disc image file, and then double-click it.

  4. If you have more than one disc burner, from the Disc burner list in Windows Disc Image Burner, click the burner that you want to use.

  5. (Optional) If you want to verify that the disc image was burned correctly to the disc, select the Verify disc after burning check box.

  6. If the integrity of disc image file is critical (for example, the disc image file contains a firmware update), you should select this check box.

  7. Click Burn to burn the disc.



The disk image is probably in your Downloads folder. Many web browsers (like Firefox) will download to there by default.
