Nautilus v. Nemo share indication

Re: boot proble PC "eMachines"

Several things that I have seen on my emachine is that if the dvd load doesn't work then use the CD (no codecs - smaller and burn it at a very low speed perhaps 2x. You can also try he usb boot methood using unetbootin to create the usb with either the CD or DVD iso. Several differeing options to try?
