These options include torrents, which can potentially mean a quicker download, our network installer for older systems and special configurations and links to our regional DVD image mirrors. If you don’t specifically require any of these installers, we recommend using our default installers.
The network installer lets you install Ubuntu over the network. This is useful, for example, if you have an old machine with a non-bootable CD-ROM or a computer that can’t run the graphical interface-based installer, either because they don’t meet the minimum requirements for the live CD/DVD or because they require extra configuration before the graphical desktop can be used, or if you want to install Ubuntu on a large number of computers at once.
BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer download network that sometimes enables higher download speeds and more reliable downloads of large files. You will need to install a BitTorrent client on your computer in order to enable this download method.
Ubuntu 12.04.5 LTS torrents
For other versions of the Ubuntu installer please select your nearest mirror; however, we recommend you use the standard installer as all other packages are available in the Software Centre.
